The Plight of the Renter

So, I am obsessed with MLB baseball. I blame my parents. Every single time there was a game on we were either watching it or listening to it on the radio when we were driving home so that we could watch the game. Baseball has always been a big part of my life. I played softball every year until I got to high school.

Well, my team, the Texas Rangers, are FINALLY in the playoffs and I've been glued to the TV as much as I can to watch the game. So tonight I left work with just enough time to get home for the game. So I get home and get all settled and ready to watch my Rangers play. I turn on the TV and I see this: "We've detected an interruption in your service. Please contact Comcast at 1-888-634-4434 to restore service. We're sorry for the inconvenience." Really? Really? Right when I want to watch the game???

Being the proactive person that I am, I decided to call the above number. But, being a renter, I don't have any of the pertinent information that I need in order to get any help. So basically, I'm powerless and I can't watch the game.

Sometimes life is rough. Especially when the Yankees just scored and you didn't get to cry out at the TV because of it. Blah.


  1. The final score must've assuaged some of the pain, though. But if I were you, I would've gone from 100% frustrated to a mere 99%.

  2. Laura, we are weirdly similar people. ELang, editing, the curly hair, snarky comments to neighbors in class, Gilmore Girls, and now baseball. My dad and I had a similar relationship with the SF Giants growing up.

    I'm sorry you couldn't watch the game.
