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.
  • Huh. When I set up the phone service at my new apartment, I was told bu SBC that it's the landlord's responsibility to maintain one working phone jack in the apartment. They don't have to keep it active, but it has to be capable of being so.
    • Yes- landlady mentioned that she'd pay for getting the 1 line working again. I just want the damn thing to have BEEN working as of you know, the week after I first notified her that it wasn't working. *mutter*
  • If you need somebody to be at your apartment for the workmen, let us know and get us a spare key somehow, and we can probably do that for you.
    • Thanks! The workperson is coming Saturday, though. I'm just irritated that it's not dealt with at this point- I'm just going to tell them to do Anything They Choose to get it working, and hand the bill to the landlady.
      Because my left one needs a good sucking.
