Short version: Power went out. Power company system was wrong. *ring ring* "Dude's power is still out", "Ok, we'll fix it". Power company fixes it.

Clearly, the dude is an idiot if he needed help to get the power company to fix his power.

Land Ark: As an employee of a power company I declare this the definition of the term "not news."


That is why you fail.

No Such Agency: pute kisses like a man:
or worse, imagine living 8 days without power while you're married.

Day 1 "Not tonight honey, I'm worried about the black out"
Day 2 "Not tonight honey, I'm listening to the wind-up radio"
Day 3 "Not tonight honey, I'm tired because it's always dark"
Day 4 "Not tonight honey, I have a headache and the drug store was closed because of the black out"
Day 5 "Not tonight honey, the house is cold"
Day 6 "Not tonight honey, I haven't had a shower"
...

Makes you wonder where those jumps in the birth rate come from.


That sounds like a case for Maury.

There wouldn't be so many unhappy marriages if people didn't settle. But, unfortunately, I have found out along the way that I'm one of those who will have to settle. It's not because I have high standards. That's not even remotely close to being true. That's just the way shiat is sometimes.

the_vicious_fez: eagles95: Sean M: Obviously he's never had to deal with Verizon for internet service. Then he'd be so tired of dealing with "My service is out!" "We've repaired it" "My service is STILL out" "We've repaired it" that he'd just have given up ages ago.

At least you don't usually have to stay on hold for 60+ minutes with the power co.

The area i may move to my choices are Verizon or Comcast....your sentence does not inspire confidence

Comcast is the root of all evil


True, they add "services" to your bill without permission and then you have to go to an office to get your account straightened out. And no matter what goes wrong, it's not their problem.
"The modem I'm leasing from you failed."
"Sounds like you have a modem problem and need to buy a new modem."

mongbiohazard: I know a guy who hiked the whole length of the Appalachian Trail, which took 6 straight months of hiking, and when he came back he no longer wanted electricity, cable, internet, etc. and cancelled the service to his house. He was always a bit weird, but considerably weirder when he got done with that hike. 6 months of largely being alone might have weird effects on your psyche.


or maybe 6 months of watching the local news made everyone else so much worse.

Anybody have any odds of that when he initially lost power it tripped his breaker and he went 7-days, 23-hours and 35-minutes without checking his breaker box?
