Fuck AT&T

The last several weeks my landline phone has not been working. So I called up my provider, AT&T. In the end the problem was fixed. However, it was neither a smooth or timely process.

 I called first thing in the morning, and was told they would come to investigate/fix the problem between 9am and 6pm, and ask that you leave an alternate number for them to contact you Seems like a rather large time window. It seems to have not been large enough, as they at no point came nor called to say they weren't coming. They tell you if you are not at home when they come, you will not get service, but will get 55$ fine for them showing up for nothing. However, it seems you get nothing for them wasting your time.

They did however call the next day at 8am to investigate the problem. So they made me waste a day at home, and then call and wake me up the next morning. Once they arrived it took them only a few minutes to fix the problem.

Fuck you AT&T. Your monopoly in my area forces me to use you. If any other option excited, I would use them instead.

Things to do on Halloween.

This is a list of things that is completely acceptable to on Halloween. Most of these should not be done any other day of the year.

Egg the houses of people handing out raisins. Those aren't candy. They are grapes that need to be thrown out.

Go to churches while wearing a devil costume. Play it completely straight.

Take a friends kid trick or treating. This is a loophole that lets adults get free candy.

Dress like a whore. That is pretty much what every female costume is anyway.

Use it as an excuse to show up at your job out of uniform. Just show up in your regular cloths and claim to be some character. Even the worst ballbuster of a boss won't call you on this.

Hide behind be "in character" while in your costume to get a pass on saying grossly inappropriate things. You know, if you don't have the balls at other times.

Minor acts of vandalism.
