Well,  that was the title of the original column by Spider Jerusalem in  "Transmetropolitan" and I figured it would be a good fit for this post too.

Work,  no, lets not talk about it please.

ISP and ISP customer service. "Oh, Sorry that you had no net for a couple of days and that our previous representative unhooked you instantly,  and oups we seem to have forgotten to transfer the modem to you when we transferred the service agreement"

So, basically they forgot that modem is needed for broadband, and... didn't transfer that.

Yey.

I now have a bad headache,  I've been in phone queues for days, (there are now 53 callers ahead of you. Your call is important to us, please wait while we ignore it) and I want to gut someone.
