Cable guy

This morning the schools had a 2 hr delay, which means Emily had school at 10am. I was also expecting a service tech from our Satellite TV provider. He was scheduled to be here between 8am & Noon. I hate waiting and I hate having to leave during my window-what if he comes when I leave. I live in a small town so I can get to her school and back in like 15 mins.The Tech called at 9am and said he was on his way and should be there for 9:30am. At 9:45am I had to leave, I decided to check the caller id and call him and tell him I was leaving the house and he could wait for me.....and that I would be home between 10am and 10:15am. He said OK. Ahhh freedom. I always feel like I can't do what I want when we schedule a service call, and this company takes 2 wks to get someone out here. He was nice and fixed the original tech's mistake and I now can use my DVR to it full potential, making my husband very happy. We can tape a show and watch another. No more fights or lonely nights in separate rooms watching our favorite shows. Now this is where things got weird...I made coffee and offered him some. He accepted and we started chatting while drinking our coffee. My husband called to check on me and I told him I was having coffee with the cable guy....he asked me if I was going to hug him when he left....I said no silly we just met.

They ALWAYS have to come to your home when you just have to go out. Happens everytime!
Glad the problem is all fixed now:)

I hate the windows and waiting. I'm glad he waited for you.

OMG I would have died laughing if you finished your coffee and chat by hugging your cable guy. LOL
