Weekend Chat Line..."Technical Difficulties"?

I haven't been incapacitated nor have I taken an extended vacation!!

My postings have been somewhat intermittent of late because my internet service has been "somewhat intermittent"! I can be working along and suddenly my connection is gone...sometimes for days at a time. According to "Varizon", I am having "Technical Difficulties".

Actually, I guess I've been fortunate
...for the most part everything has run smoothly for quite awhile. But when it starts seems like everything goes. Along with internet issues I've had both my printers go down. Just try finding a real person to talk to...then try to find one that speaks English well enough that you can understand what they are saying!!!

Having Said this
...thought I would share these pictures sent to me by Lois Primeau a few weeks ago. She too had been having "Technical Difficulties".

Ladies and Gentlemen...this is India...where your overseas "technical support" comes from. Do you wonder why you can't get through or get cut off? What these companies call "technical support" can make one positively unchristian!!

So I ask you: What do you do when you reach a 'technical support" person you can't understand? Do you think it does any good to complain to the company? How do you handle your frustrations?
The "Chat Line" is open...I'm anxious to here what you have to say. And as always, please feel free to comment on what others have to say.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Ahhh... I was wondering where you were. It can be so frustrating to not have your computer working properly...or at all. I hope things get sorted out fast!

Thanks's good to know I was missed! Things seem to be fine, at least for today. Now if I can just get this new printer functioning properly. Guess you could say I've had a technically challenging week!

As you have made very clear, there are many parts of life that are important but none quite as important as the connections we have with our family.
I feel fortunate that most of my family is near and we see each other face to face several times a week.
I guess people do what you do... keep in as much contact via phone, internet,etc. as you can and hold them close in your heart.
Be well, Marsha!
