Some of you may have read my post about my buddy Darren. If not read this before you go further.
After we exchanged mails a couple of times, I haven’t heard from him in a while. But I’m sure that he is doing alright. I only wish that he would update & maintain the blog section of his website much, much often. Other than this entry about me, he hadn’t blogged in a year. You need to move to WordPress really badly Darren.
I hadn’t checked his site since late January but today when I just happened to check it, I was surprised to read an entry about me. It’s a nice one and I was touched!
As for the answer to the question “Roshan, when are you going to come to Canada for a visit? I’ll pick you up at the airport. We can go on a road trip and visit Vancouver and the Okanagan, maybe watch some Hockey Night in Canada…” oh man do I wish that I could come over for a visit! Drink some Labatts or Molson (any Canadian beer), eat poutine and watch hockey at a stadium!
Some day, some how!
I’ve not been getting internet connection properly for about 2 days (you will notice the slowness in blog posting and the lesser numbers as I was blogging from the office). Monday night it rained a lot and by 10:30 pm or so my net got disconnected. Content to watch some tv for an hour or so until bed time, I didn’t bother to call up their customer care service and register a complaint.
Tuesday morning when I checked my PC the connection wasn’t back on yet. A little annoyed I waited for an hour and then called up their Call Center and registered a complaint with them. The girl who answered the call asked for the preferred timings as to when I would be home to check the status and I said that I would be home between 9 pm till 9:30 am. The TAT was 24 hours, so I thannked her and kept the call.
I’ve had problems with them before ). I held my temper in check and told the girl who called me that I had mentioned to her colleague that I would be at home only around 9 pm, so could she call me back then? She mumbled something about their call back department doing a 9-6 shift or something, so I said fine! Call me in the morning!
The connection wasn’t fixed this morning as well but by 4:30 pm I got a call from them asking if I could check the status. Now this company is notorious for not taking down all the details (
Well, I was expecting that the problem would be solved by the time I reached home. It wasn’t! So I called once again but this time while I was on the phone, the guy was able to fix my issue and voila! I am back online. I wonder what he did!
