Should Have Done It Myself!

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I were having a discussion about keeping our land line phone versus just using our cell phones. I told him that we needed the land line because of the security alarm system goes through the phone lines. Which we replies, "Do we really need the alarm system?" Which I replied with just a look. You all know that look! Then I told him that we needed it for the DSL line, which he replied with, "Can we use the cable company?" Now I knew where we were going with this conversation....he wanted to switch everything over to the cable company. I then told him that would be fine, but we still needed the security alarm, unless he wanted to buy me a big attack dog and a gun, I'd be all for it. Besides we would have to change our emails on everything. A lot of computer work which he's not going to do. Okay, he says, we'll keep the land line, but I'm going to eliminate some of the extras that we have on the line that we don't use. I said that would be fine. So he called them the other day and told me that it was all taken care of. that alone should have set off warning flags! But I didn't say anymore about, went about my business, as usual. Last night we come home from work and I didn't have any Internet service!!! But we have our phone. I asked him just what he cut out of the phone bill, which he said only the things we didn't use. Like I believe that! I call the phone company, they said that he discontinued the Internet! I reinstated it, BUT it will take 24 to 48 hours to get it back, and a reconnection fee. In the mean time, I'm using my computer at work to do my business! MEN!

Next time I'll take care of it! Have a great day!

Sheesh! Men don't know anything, do they? Yes, you should have done it yourself.

LOL men!! Mine's fortunately a techie so if any rare screw ups happen at all regarding computer related stuff they're likely to be by me.

But he is a guy after all so there are other things in which he makes me think I should've done it myself! LOL
