Is it me, or is the service industry slowly descending into b-a-n-a-n-a land?

Maybe I’ve just been evil and the karma-kats are onto me. If you read this (thanks and watch out for YOUR karma), you know that I’ve been buffeted by the check-out lines at my ghetto Krogers and Walgreens and Wal-Mart, not to mention the aforementioned desk clerk at Motel 5 aka La Quinta in South Little Rock and the ‘shoving’ docent at Schermerhorn. Not mentioned previously are the disappearing waiter in Columbia today, the sneering glacier-like counterperson at a MacDonalds in Texarkana (don’t even ask), and the guy also named John at San Antonio Taco the other day who was 8 people behind me in line, but stole my nachos off the counter and got away with it because of his name. There’s more, but i hate whining.

On top of all this fun is the fact that the internet is out at our house. Comcast has issued their usual ‘CYA’ message of ‘trouble in the area’ with no promise as to when this trouble is going to be eliminated or at least mitigated.

I’m blogging from Portland Brew on Murphy road where I ordered a grilled cheese. I love the grilled cheese here at P Brew. I’m sitting outside, drinking my iced coffee, watching the guy fix my grilled cheese, put the grill cheese on my plate with a side of greens, walk out of the kitchen, tilt the plate and spill my g. cheese on the floor.

I musta been a bastard in a previous life*.

*certain relatives may have an issue with the word ‘previous’.

  1. What has been the deal with Comcast the last few days? Ours was out all day today, intermittent outage yesterday and Sunday.

    On top of that, apparently, the internet has the same server as OnDemand and the channels above 100 and they were all out. At one point yesterday, there was no cable tv at all. Does this mean, they will deduct the hours lost from our bills?

  2. You can always come coast on our wireless. I’ll give you the WEP key, and you can sit on our front porch steps and blog to your heart’s content. And if we’re at home, you can even come inside to do it!
