Reach out, reach out and touch someone
If you're of a certain age, you may remember when the corporation now known simply as ATT, broadcast a commercial that urged us all to "reach out, reach out and touch someone" via American Telephone & Telegraph's long-distance service. As I recall, the commercials were kind of endearing. Now, of course, ATT is all about fiber optics and networks and data streaming and, well, now I'm in over my head . . . .
The point of this rambling post is to say that after much diagnostic testing of my laptop, it turns out the trouble was with my network. And tonight, a techie named "Leonard," who I suspect lives in India, was--after an hour and a half of asking me to "kindly click on restore" and "kindly click on re-set" on about 3,100 various dialog boxes--able to troubleshoot my problem. "Thank you for choosing AT&T."
Yes, indeed, not having internet service has been an inconvenience for me, but not being treated as inconvenience was quite refreshing.
More posts to come.
I've been saving up.
