OH FOR THE MERCY OF CHRIST AND THE LOVE OF FUCK AND THE FIST OF AN ANGRY GOD

So my phone is still fucked up. 1 month 22 days after I last posted 'my phone is fucked up'.

Call landlady 1 month 20 days ago:
'get the phone company to come fix it if it's our fault we'll reimburse you.'
'uhm but this started the day after your workmen started painting the building.'
'NO NO IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.'

Fine.
Finally call phone company, schedule appointment.
A WEEK before the appointment, my cellphone rings.
'Hi, I'm here to work on your phone?'
'...You're supposed to be there tomorrow.'
'Oh, well, I was here working on someone else's.'
So the tech determines that NO, there is NO PROBLEM with their phone wires it is the intercom box.
Call landlady.
WHO IS IN NEW ZEALAND, SURROUNDED BY CHINESE GOOSEBERRIES AND LONGBEAKED FLIGHTLESS BIRDS.
Landlady gets back.
Landlady gets tech out there to work on phone box Friday last week.
Monday this week as well, since I still do not have a phone that will let you call in.

tech says 'LA LA LA IT IS WORKINGE'.
Call SBC.
Tell SBC what's up.
SBC sends tech this Saturday.

DID I MENTION I WAS FUCKING ONCALL THIS WEEK.

AUGH.
