My phone is out... completely and totally dead. It seems that the overzealous hole diggers, the ones who like filling Tripoli's roads and streets with huge cravasses have hit the main cable in my area. We haven't had phone service for the last five days. I went to the phone company's repair and service centre for my area this morning and they said it will be another two or three days.
On the way back home I drove by the place where the damaged cable is and found the phone company trucks, those lovely bright yellow and blue vehicles all parked along the road. The repairmen where standing around, peering into a hole in the ground with bewildered looks on their faces.
I hope they figure out the problem and get it fixed quickly. I feel totally disconnected with the world. Imagine me with no internet. I'm having to go to a cafe... the connection is incredibly slow. Click and wait.... for an eternity! After they get the phone lines working again I will have to see if good ole LTT will credit me for the days I paid for but haven't been able to use.
For some reason I feel like this is going to go on longer than two or three days. Maybe I'm just suffering from internet and phone withdrawal. But still I'm not ready to break out and buy a cell phone... God I hate those things!
I'll be in touch... from an internet cafe.... frustrating... click and wait..... forever......
