Dripping With Sugar

I am typing feverishly.

In hopes I can finish this before my Internet connection goes out again.

I called Suddenlink for the 1,975 time this month with my usual, "My Internet is out."

I didn't even call the Supervisor.

I wanted my call to be recorded.

I wanted to be all mad and pissy.

Because of course... I was.

I was just waiting to give it to the person that answered my call.

They answered.

I choked.

I decided to be nice and polite with a hint of Iamnotgoingtotakeitanymore.

Guess what?

Sometimes it pays to be nice.

I am back online.

And I got a credit on my account.

Who says nice girls finish last?

Krystyn said...

Yay for being reconnected.....and for the credit.

I think I would have choked too. I normally do. And I normally get a credit. So I agree - nice girls sometimes finish with more money in their pockets :)

Oooh I always want to be bitter and scathing but I just don't have it in me. I always end up apologising to them for their crappy service.

Next time I'll follow your fine example and wait for the miracles to occur.
