Really Awful Lines

So yet again you bet we get
A loss of all our internet:
The wonky lines began last night,
And only now are coming right.

I spent some hours on the phone
To find someone to whom to moan –
My calls then only came to halt
When hearing ’twas a general fault. 

I now have e-mails by the score,
So there’s a busy time in store;
I don’t know quite where to begin –
Or should I simply just give in? 

The weather’s cold, and I, instead,
Would so much rather be in bed –
At least, if this here rhyme is seen
You’ll know why I have not here been.

  3. Very frustrating for you, Col. I get so furious at times like this, but you always seem to vent through these wonderful rhymes. Oh, for your tolerance.

    Amazing how quickly the internet is restored when you feel too exhausted to do anything online.

    I hope you get it all sorted, the e-mails and the connection problems.

    My more sincere sympathies, there is nothing more frustrating than connection problems.
    As for the emails, there’s only one place to start …
    ♫ Let’s start at the very beginning
    A very good place to start ♫


  10. I know the feeling! In my case it was three weeks worth! I suggest a wholesale DELETE.

    Well, I have 3715 e-mails in my inbox. Winston Churchill said, “Never, never, never give up. 🙂

    Internet problems are one of the worst! It’s good to know that you make a conscious decision to leave us though
