Well I don't have DSL service at home anymore. Stupid MCI Neighborhood discontinued their DSL service for a reason that they cannot explain.
They left me high and dry with no suggestions of other DSL companies..fuckers
So Woo HOO!! A mailer from Earthlink came that was spouting off all kinds of cheap phone and DSL service combined and I immediately signed up online.
I waited, each day becoming more and more excited about having the internet again....
Then I called them and asked them - WTF??? They said: "Your order was cancelled because you do not have phone service with the local "major" phone company"
I called back a couple of days later and they said...We''l give you DSL and phone service with us if you agree to change your phone number
I called the local phone monopoly and they wanted a $100 Deposit!!!! (fuck that)
I called Earthlink back the same day for yet another round of bullshit: "Your current phone service provider will not release your phone number, so we can't transfer your number"
SO damn WHATEVA!!!!!
I called my current phone service provider (MCI Neighborhood) only to hear: " We are NOT holding your number hostage, we have NO CLUE what you are talking about"
I swear to god...
So the moral of this story is:
Get dial up and suffer...oh wait! No dial-up for you Linka72...more phone line/phone number BULLSHIT!!!
I'm going to go drink extremely heavily right now.
