The message I wish I could put on the tech support line
If you are in the area affected by Hurricanes Katrina or Rita, please press three now
Hurricanes came ashore. Powerlines fell down. Transformers blew up. Roads flooded. Trees blocked access. There's a fuel shortage. The technicians and the fuel available for generators are being used to keep the telephone portion of the service (and 911) up and running. Yes, we know your DSL is down. No, we don't now how long service will be interrupted. If you use a medical device which requires internet access to monitor your condition, please press one to speak with a technician. Otherwise, hang up now because we don't give a shit that you can't play online poker or get the emailed photos of your niece's wedding in Hawaii.
