Ever had one of THOSE days?

You know the kind I mean? 
 Where nothing goes the way it was supposed to go?
It started out Okay, I was to meet the phone company repairman at 
daughter's house, he would be there between 8:00am and Noon...
He was there at about 8:10am, and found the problem..but it wasn't at her house, it was on the pole down the street..
Ants, so he cleaned that, and sure enough, she had phone service.
He says it is always the Ants, never the Uncles.
He was gone a little after 8:30am.

So, I call the internet service, had to get them to help me reset the
modem.  There is where the fun began.
I explained that I needed the DSL helpline.
A few minutes later, one called, but he wasn't the  DSL helpline.
He'd turn it in to the other guys.
about 80 minutes later, I called again, they said I hadn't said the dsl, I had said wireless.  I know better.  So I waited some more
After daughter called them at noon, they called me right back, lol guess she stepped on a toe.
It took all of 5 minutes to reset the modem when they gave me the codes....
There is more, I'd said that I'd wait for the service company that would service her air conditioner..After an hour late,  I finally called her, told her where I would hide the key, and came home, and they finally showed up at her work about 4:00pm, never made it to her house.  Got the gas tank back on the tractor,
and it running, so the day wasn't a total loss.
