While patiently waiting for the “PC Tech” expert to arrive, I’d like to stress the importance of the word, “escalate.” We are at the mercy of our internet connection and our wireless phone company. If your connections are down, lost or disappear and when your distress phone call finally reaches a human being, chances are they are at the bottom of the food chain (a remora fish, so to speak.) I have learned that if I employ the word “escalate” accompanied by “I want to cancel my service” miraculously I am transported at light speed to someone, if not at shark level, then possibly at barracuda stage.
So, here I wait on a Friday morning, for this PC Tech to arrive. His mission: to re-construct the spaghetti-like pile of cords, wires and cables associated with my overloaded table of gizmos and gadgets into a functioning hi-tech armory. I’ll let you know the results. Happy Friday! (Sadly, it’s not Martini time yet.)
