every man has his breaking point
Tuesday, November 26, 2013
I'm working from home today. I don't do this all that often because I just don't care for it. Maybe I'm too much of a people person or maybe it's that I'm too cheap to use my own printer for work stuff and there is only so much I can get done without printing.
ah but why am I working from home?
lemme tell ya
For some time our DVR has been freezing up while we're watching a program. Usually whatever it is we have taped is also available on demand so we can find it. The downside is that you can't fast forward so not only do you have to let it run to catch up to the point in the show where it froze, but you also can't fast forward past the commercials.
Annoying but not worth really dealing with calling and waiting around for someone to maybe show up or not. We once had no one show up, we called, got ugly, and someone came out. Exactly one year later out of the blue a guy came to the door. Yup they had made that appointment for the wrong YEAR - awesome.
Anyway things changed rather dramatically Sunday evening.
We watched the Panthers - Dolphins game while recording the UNC-Louisville basketball game. I actually saw the score on facebook so I told my husband that even though we're not that great this year and Louisville is #3 he really really should watch the game.
You see where this is going right?
Exactly. About halfway through the second half the recording froze.
My husband who is generally very zen-like about things had a total psychotic break.
and so here I sit at my kitchen table with my work laptop awaiting a technician
I don't mind really. It's horrible out there, lower 30's and raining. A good day to hide out indoors really.
