Oh Happy Day!

Right before the kid's exams started the telephone service stopped working. It was time to pay the bill. I decided to wait until all the exams were over before paying it. So for the past few weeks we've been without a landline.

It really doesn't matter much to me as most of the people I call have such bad telephone connections that you can hardly hear them above the annoying sounds of crackling, whooshing and other people talking because of crossed lines. On one of my friend's lines you are blasted by a radio station in the background the entire time you are talking! Can the phone company get their act together? This is 2008.... sigh...

Yesterday Nora had her last exam - Yeah! and so this morning, as promised, I went to pay the bill. Usually you pay it in the morning and the company turns the service back on some time in the afternoon. Every few minutes one of the girls picks up the reciever to see if it's working. They keep looking at the phone - expecting it to ring and they're calling the line with their mobiles to check too. hehehe...

So, for those that are complaining that they can't reach me... keep trying! I will soon have a landline again but most likely the line will be busy because the girls will be calling everyone they know to tell them the phone is back.
