Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I have been offline for about a week all thanks to the wonderful world of my internet provider and thier awesome customer service center.

So this year I am thankful that I didn't make any death threats. I am thankful that I only told a certain custumer service representive to fuck off 10 times instead of 100 that she deserved. I am thankful that I got to spend 20 hours on the phone as I truly love the phone. I am thankful that "we'll get it back on tonight" really means "sometime next week."

But most importantly I am thankful that Hossmom has a calming influence on me, Little Hoss constantly told me "Good Job Dad" and that Bubba Hoss has now learned the word "Shit."


  1. Good for you. You don't want the kids learning that stuff on the street. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Hope you had a great Thaksgiving! Sorry about the customer service jack-offs. I spent two hours on the phone this week trying to get in touch with a government agency to verify my son's insurance and I never got through to anyone. After two straight hours! I still have no idea who his doctor is. I'm trying to find a way to be thankful for government agencies and being put on hold for hours, but I haven't found it yet.

  3. Amo - you could call my government agency and talk to a real person after 3 rings (except at lunch - then you might have been on hold for about 5 minutes (MAX!) However, the legislature discovered our form of customer service and found it too embarressing for the other government entities - so they shut it down....
