Why, you might wonder, do I need a sledgehammer?
To whack the ever-living-daylights out of our alarm keyboard thingie that is beeping, quite mercilessly, every. ten. seconds.
Don't get me wrong, I adore all of the newfangled technological thingies around here to pieces and know they can make our lives easier/faster/safer, etc. But when they're on the fritz and obviously possessed by evil high-pitched beeping fairies, they make me kind of crazy.
Speaking of techie things, Scott and I have had two recent revelations:
1.) You can cancel your DSL in a moment of haste (and misunderstanding, more on that in a minute) but you will have to wait almost a week to get your DSL back. Sweet.
And b.) You can think you and your hubby are sharing a texting plan that seems perfect for your minimal texting needs (i.e. cheap) but once the veil is lifted you realize you were duped.
In a nutshell, after having problems with our DSL service we made a hasty decision to get one of those new-fangled MiFi devices and a data plan. Everything was bright and shiny with our cute MiFi thingie, so we canceled our DSL. Then we, and when I say we I mean Scott, figured out how many gigabytes(?) we'd most likely be burning through every month we realized the MiFi, while cute and handy and bright and shiny would send us to the poor house rather quickly. Oops. So we swallowed some crow and called Verizon back. As for the texting nutshell, we signed up for 200 texts for $5.00 a month, thinking it covered both our phones. Um, nope. They, and when I say they I mean AT&T, don't offer that perfect (i.e. cheap) plan any more. Now it's $10.00 for 1000 texts a month, and really, who I am I to send anywhere near 1000 texts a month? I'm 42, not 14, you know. So now I have to decide if this plan is better than just paying per text. And just how much texting is worth to me.
I think I'm back to looking for that sledgehammer.
