Where the Dragon Laffs Issue This Morning?


Leprechaun here (as you might have guessed from the pleasing green tint to the font as well as the title of this entry)~

Good morning fellow campers and co-conspirators in driving Impish insane!

Well actually I think it’s pretty safe to say we don’t have to drive him to insanity this morning. Hell, I doubt we’d even need a golf cart to get him there, someone with a walker and a busted hip could probably escort him to insanity and not even break a sweat after Impish’s experiences of last night and this morning!

How can I possibly make this bold-faced claim of our “beloved and feckless leader”? Simple. I got this e-mail this morning…the only one he has been able to send in the last 12 hours:

I hate AT&T.  The brand new router they sent me is no good.  Took me hours last night with some jack-wagon who couldn’t speak English to figure that one out!  Then it took me all morning with still another bozo-bus to get my OLD modem back up and running because the computer thought, since it was set up for a new router and that router disappeared, that the service was being hijacked.  I had to answer the question of “Who’s your favorite singer?” as a secret question that I set up like 10 years ago!  Only had two chances and it took both Mary and I to figure it out on the second guess!  I was so pissed!

Camel Dung!

Horse-radish!

(Mary has me trying to cut down on my foul language before Izzy calls some other 9 year-old kid a fucking moron and I get called by the principal)

Anyway, got to get to work.  Text me when you get this and I’ll try to slip away and call you.

See poor Impish went and tempted the Norns and Fates, he opened a can of worms by trying to upgrade his computer technology. Specifically, he attempted to go from an ancient 5-year-old DSL modem (works only on a single computer) to a current router/gateway with wireless capabilities (allows multiple computers online at same time and sans pesky cables).

The Norns, Fates and  one of their evil agents of torment, AT&T responded by sending him a fancy new router,  accompanied that is by another of their evil agents of torment, Murphy and his laws. It seems that after Impish spending over an hour on the “plug & play installation” phase of things, Murphy decided to entertain himself by applying his laws to the situation and cause the router to fail after working for only 15 minutes!

This brought about multiple rounds of calls by Impish to AT&T Customer Service and Tech Support (both EXTREMELY oxymoronic). This is usually fruitless, extremely frustrating and any progress can be measured in micro-millimeters/ hour spent on the phone with them as anyone that has ever dealt with either place well knows. If you are extremely blessed to have never experienced this sort of thing, or like me take pleasure and solace in knowing you’re not the only person tormented by these people, please refer to the comic panels at the end of this for a humorous summary of what the experience is like.

Impish finally managed with tech supports “help” ( I use the term in the broadest possible definition and meaning) to get his computer to once again recognise his antiquated modem a scant 10 minutes before he had to leave for work and to take his daughter to the bus leaving no time for a D.L. issue to go out.

Progress after roughly 8 hours of working on the upgrade from the time he opened the Pandora’s Box he received from Arrogant Technology & Torment? None. Frustration level? Epic. End result? After 3 more hours on the phone this morning, he gets to go through the entire affair again on Friday when another Pandora’s Box arrives!

Chances that come Saturday morning Impish Dragon will be a heavily sedated drooling and babbling idiot in a straight jacket with instruction to pee in the corner of his round rubber room? Almost a surety.

Now, lets see those comics while having a chuckle or 2 at Impish’s frustrations and expense!

About lethalleprechaun

I believe in being the kind of man who, when my feet touch the floor in the morn', causes the Devil to say "BUGGER ME! HIMSELF IS UP!" ======== I'm a White Married Heterosexual who fervently believes in the war(s) we are fighting, the Second Amendment which I plan on defending with my last breath and my last round of ammunition as well as Arizona's stringent law on Immigration and the need for the border wall. I'm a right of center Con-centrist with Tea Party & Republican sympathies who drives an SUV. I am a Life Time Member of the NRA, a Charter Member of the Patriots' Border Alliance and North American Hunters Association. If there is a season for it and I can shoot one I'll eat it and proudly wear its fur. I believe PETA exists solely to be a forum for Gays, Vegetarians, Hollywood snobbery to stupid to get into politics and Soybean Growers. The ACLU stopped protecting our civil liberties sometime after the 1960s and now serves its own bigoted headline grabbing agenda much in the same way as the Southern Poverty Law Center. I am ecstatic that WE the PEOPLE finally got mad enough to rise up and take back the Government from WE the ENTITLED and reverently wish the Liberals would just get over the loss and quit whining/protesting all the time. After all they're just reaping what they've sown. I am Pro-choice both when it comes to the issue of abortion AND school prayer. I believe in a government for the people, by the people which represents and does the people's will. Therefore I an Pro States rights and mandatory term limits but against special interest group campaign contributions and soft money. I think that sports teams who allow their players to sit or take a knee during the National Anthem should be boycotted until the message is received that this is not acceptable behavior for role models for children. I believe Congressional salaries should be voted on bi-annually by the people they represent and not by themselves. I think Congress should be subject to every law they pass on the populace including any regarding Social Security or Healthcare. Speaking of the Healthcare bill (or con job as I see it) I hope Trump will overturn it and set things back to normal. I oppose the building of an Mosque or ANY Islamic center at or within a 10 mile radius of Ground Zero in New York. I will fight those in favor of this until hell freezes over and then I will continue to fight it hand to hand on the ice. Further I think the ban on immigrants from certain nations known to harbor and promote terrorism is a justified measure, at least until we can come up with better methods of vetting and tracking those non citizens we allow in the country. We did not inflict this measure on them those who refuse to point out, denounce or fight radical religious terrorism brought this upon themselves.
