day138

Today’s theme is Woo. People(not me) with this them love meeting new people and winning them over. They derive satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a connection with someone. Yea, this one is definitely not a strength of mine. I couldn’t woo my way out of a wet paper bag. It just doesn’t occur to me to try and sway others around. Once I figure out where somebody stands, I see them as a static object, a pillar of whatever idea they have. You can’t move a pillar, at least not easily, you just have to navigate around them. That is what I do.

Internet went out again today. This time a senior technician came out and replaced the wiring going from inside the house to the box outside on the back of the house, and said an engineer would come to check the wiring going from there to the hub. Engineer came by about an hour after he finished. Really fast technical support from AT&T.
Also, a ‘customer retention’ specialist came by. Friendly enough fellow, he geeked out over my chair and we chatted briefly about D&D, since he is also DMing the Princes of Apocalypse.
I must say the handling of this situation by AT&T leaves nothing to complain about, other than that it keeps happening. And nobody can seem to figure out why.
