For Crying in a Bucket!

Let me first apologize for not getting you a Creative Blog fix. It all started out so innocently..........I thought I would be proactive in updating my virus scanning program. I wasn't a fan of the one we had, so I researched and found one that came highly recommended. I downloaded it and that's when the problems started. Do NOT buy BitDefender! I could not get a internet connection for the life of me. I was on the phone with BitDefender.........NO HELP at all. Then I called Comcast.... Clayton has become my new best friend in Alberta Canada. He was so pleasant for the full 2 hours we were on the phone.........even though he couldn't figure it out........well he probably could have, but it had nothing to do with comcast. So I call DELL. Now I have another best friend in India. His name is Joseph. We spent 3 hours together with several reboots! He even told me at the end that I actually made HIS day! I guess people don't usually send smooches through the phone, but I did. What a nightmare! Since I have to add a photo, Treva always brings a smile to my face......and she's cool as a cucumber on the phone to AAA.

BitDefender still denies it was their product...........whatever. And the kicker? While talking to Clayton, he informed me that as a comcast customer, I get FREE McAfee virus protection. Who knew?!

So, my dear ladies...........I will probably not have a post for you until tomorrow. I'm so sorry, but after 5 hours on the phone, playing a computer geek, I am fried. I was typing in all kinds of geekiness. RENEW, FLUSH......bla bla bla

Anyone up for a martini?

It cracks me up a little that they make the customer service reps in India choose an American name. Joseph, LOL.

Oh...I know your pain...I become a real basket case when anything goes wrong with my computer...and it is NEVER, NEVER, might I add an... EVER my fault...and talking to someone on the phone about said problems....well...It just makes me want to scream, while pulling my hair and running barefoot with pj's on through the neighborhood....I just loose control...I am not technical...never have been...and I believe there is just cause to say I never will be.

Hang in there...and it would have been nice if Comcast had informed you of FREE stuff before you started up with them....seems they are missing a great opprotunity to make Comcast a better seller...with free stuff and all...

Make mine dry...very dry...with a couple of olives...got's to have my high calorie count!

Blessings
