I think the internet is fixed. Hope so anyway. It hasn’t gone out since the cable guy was here yesterday anyway.
I’m not sure about my home phone. I called my friend Laura in Atlanta and she said it was still breaking up some.
I requested someone come out who actually worked for Cox Cable and this guy did. He was here for two hours. But he replaced all the cable outside and inside.
Replacing The Cable:
He said he followed it all the way around my apartment. And something had been chewing on the cable. Squirrels maybe.
So he replaced it and tucked this cable up high, I guess under the eaves.
He also asked where I work, and I said in this chair.
So he took the modem from the bedroom, rewired, and put it right next to my chair. He left me with a yellow cable that I can hard wire right into my laptop if need be.
Social Distancing & Wearing A Mask:
The man was very nice, social distanced and wore a mask.
He told me an odd story, when we got to talking. Said he went to one woman’s house and she asked him to take off his mask. (It is a company policy that they wear masks. This information they emailed to me several times before the appointment.)
The woman said she liked to look at lips when she talked to someone. Hard of hearing?
He told her then he guessed there wouldn’t be any talking.
She was not happy with this and told him she didn’t think much of all this pandemic stuff. That if it was your time, then it was just your time.
New CDC Guideline:
I read this morning that the CDC is now telling businesses that they can hand out masks in stores. But not to confront anyone if they refuse.
Because employees are being slapped, choked and shot over this.
What on earth is wrong with people? If someone does this to an employee they should be arrested for assault.
