I found my shoes today. It was an exciting moment. I also unpacked some more boxes, and yet there are always more. More more more.
We are trying to decide whether or not to a) get updated phones, b) if we do, should we get local numbers? Now this last comes up on account of the fact that the phones are in my name. To get the discount with the man’s work, they have to be in his name. To do so, we have to call some number and go through some rigamarole, and then go back into the shop to do the discounting. If we simply stop service and restart under a new contract, then we have to change numbers, because apparently you can’t port your number to your same carrier. You have to change. Right now I have Verizon, and the only reason to stay at this point is because of the discount. But I’ll be honest, thinking of another carrier.
These are the things that drive me nuts. It shouldn’t be so freaking hard. I went online to look at what they have to offer and it was impossible to find any real information. It was designed to be as discouraging as possible, from what I can tell. I couldn’t figure out a plan I might want, or anything. It’s like they deliberately hid the details, or pushed me toward what I don’t want. I don’t know. It should be simpler and easier.
Anybody superhappy or reasonably happy with their carriers and want to talk about them?
On the home phone, we can’t call out. Tech coming tomorrow. Also, a plumber.
In other news, found out about two sudden resignations from my ex-campus today. One in English, one in art. The faculty is not that large. And three inside a week? Wow. But I’m afraid it’s fairly typical of the campus. You’d think they’d try to fix that.
