I woke up this morning disturbed by a noise, turned over to look at the clock and it was 9.30am. Damn, I had missed my dental appointment. I could still hear something outside, so I opened the curtains to find a van parked outside with three men milling around, one was trying to poke some wire or something thru a 4 or 5mm hole they’d drilled through my bedroom window about a foot up from the bottom.
I slid open the window and could see they’d pulled away some boards from the side of my house below the window and the cable was running down through it. I asked them what they were doing rather calmly given the situation and they said they were installing my Fibre Optic Broadband.
Despite their method and lack of notification or consultation, I told them I was more than happy and surprised to be getting it installed so soon. I thought I’d be lucky to be getting it at all, though I would have rathered the ran the cable downstairs instead of drilling a hole through my bedroom window.
My mind went back to the missed dental appointment. I woke up again, it was only 5.30am. There was no hole in my bedroom window. The funny thing is, I can’t deny I wasn’t a little dissapointed.
