guess where i am?

sitting in the local mcdonalds carpark using their wifi access.


why indeed;

my telephone line was cut off this morning as they claim that i have not paid my bill.
i paid it on 16.12.10 in full by 'a mandat cash' at la poste, 
i have the receipt to prove this.
the payment has been lost in the system; 
the telephone company do not have a fax for me to send a copy 
of my reciept to, what?! neither do they have a system in place 
to trace lost payments. so i have been cut off through no fault 
of my own and the best bit is it will take them 48 hours to 
reconnect me when i pay this bill for the second time...

so no man! no telephone and no internet,
gee the year is starting on a real high.

hope it is sunnier chez vous...

ps thank goodness for mcdo (never thought i'd say that)

eeek poor you! Yes I would be mad, so mad, I remember once being told by an operator at the water company that they don't keep transaction refs for bills (water bills) my payment had been lost and the transaction refs I had been jotting down for years made no difference anyway! Argggh!
I admire your dedication and genius for going to mc D's to use the wifi! :-)

Sorry to hear of your phone company woes! Not fair at all! Hope the rest of your 2011 is all smooth sailing :)

We have become so used to this fantastic tool called the internet that you must have felt bereft at the loss of it. McDonalds - well - for every cloud and all that......!

Enough comments from me now, I must leave you in peace! I will visit again.
