Spoke Too Soon

Last week when I said that my phone was up and running, it was. Then, not so much after that.

It seems that Hillbilly Phone Company find it to be acceptable to merely run the phone line across the ground from the pole to my house, rather than, say, suspending it in the air, or burying it like the old line.

They also don't seem to think it necessary to leave a note or anything that this was their decision.

They fixed it, then the line was cut by the lawnmower by accident.

Then it took them almost a week to come and fix it again, and, lo and behold, they again left it running across the ground and left no note, but this time they took the extra step of marking the gas line with little orange flags before they went away.

It has now been four days since they did that.

I'm wondering if they are going to come and bury it or not.

But, the moral of the story is that the phone works again, for now.
