Like many young people, there were quite a number of things I wanted to be when I grew up.
A flight attendant - only back then they were called stewardesses.
A teacher - of almost anything, but mainly of literature.
A businesswoman - because we didn't have much money and I thought all business people were rich.
One thing I never, EVER, aspired to being was ANY kind of technical advisor. And now I know why.
I have spent a good portion (or a bad one, depending upon your point of view) of the past three days with computer "experts" who were eager to solve my PC problems for me.
Would that enthusiasm equaled understanding. On either side of the conversation, theirs or mine.
I have now been rebooted, refreshed, logged on, logged out, deleted, canceled, unsubscribed and reconfigured.
Subsequently, I am bemused, confused (but definitely not amused), annoyed, dismayed, and exhausted.
Oh, and after each of the three separate customer service / chat/ help desk experiences, I have been politely invited to provide feedback about my satisfaction level.

So here's the deal. I may be back in a day or two when I have recovered from the above mentioned trauma. Or, it is entirely possible that I may never be heard from again. Right now it is a toss up.

Hope no one offered to fix your problem today; but if they did, I sincerely hope they actually delivered on their promise. If not, you have my condolences. Until next time (maybe) ~ Marsha
