Somebody’s taking customer service seriously

I realize that I’m still in the “honeymoon phase” with my new employer, but if today’s experience with the IT HelpDesk is any indication, I’m pretty confident that I can look forward to a VERY happy marriage.

Today’s workout courtesy of technical difficulties

Dr. Darling called me on my way home from the train station on Thursday afternoon to report that the elevator in our building was behaving strangely and suggest that I not use it.  And sure enough, when I entered the building I found our 5th floor neighbor’s dog tied to the hand railing of the …

The Vast Telia Conspiracy

We’re IN!

Sorry for the delay in reporting in…but we have no internet at The Penthouse – Nordic and probably won’t have for a week…which surprises the hell out of both of us since Dr. Darling had a very extensive conversation with the Telia customer service rep when she called to order the service moved (along with our …

Technical difficulties…

So I finally got the “new” laptop my boss promised me back when I first started my job (in November of last year). I’m using quotation marks around the word “new” because it’s only “new” to me…it actually belonged to a colleague in the IT Dept. until he left the company in February. Also, it’s …
