Today’s tale is told in segments.
This morning the cable guy came to fix the Internet, and he was successful (hallelujah!). He did lots of interesting things like make sure I was 18+, ask whether my dog was a girl or a boy, and ask how to get outside (hint hint: this is Florida, it’s the giant glass doors). But otherwise, from what I can tell, he looked at a lot of cords, did a lot of tablet checking, and traipsed the backward. But hey, those 30 minutes of awkwardness were worth the Internet.
Today I spent an hour and seventeen minutes on hold with FSU’s financial aid department. 1 hour 17 minutes where I had to hear the same song with the same FSU promoting monologue for an hour and seventeen minutes. I finally called from the home phone, whilst I continued my hold on cellphone, to see if they’d simply forgotten I was there, or that they didn’t want to deal with me. The answer was I was either forgotten or ignored because my call was immediately answered and I was told I had the wrong department to handle my issue. One hour and 17 minutes and I had not reached the right people. I was livid. Mom says that that is just how bureaucracy works.
For my final act I attended a friend’s softball friendly whilst I sat in an eno with friends and discussed life. It was a good distraction.
For now I must depart, I’m exhaus….*yawn*…ted.
