MDH: Incompetence :(((

tscd:And now we have a new box which also doesn't work haha is great. Is good thing that baby is sleeping otherwise this would all be horrific.

tscd: PhoneGenius has called for backup. This is turning into a party. Maybe I should start serving cocktails.
MDH: Why doesn't the new modem work? Is it because the computer is from the UK so it doesn't speak singlish? Or are they just stupid?

tscd: No. They appear to be having a conference. It's the Modem Grand Round in here.

tscd: Finally fixed. Apparently the call centre people are morons.
MDH: Why, what happened?

tscd: Oh he kept saying to the PhoneStooge please activate the internet activate it switch it on turn it on, on it on it and the PhoneStooge kept saying huh huh. This went on for 15 min.
