You’ve been on hold for what seems like forever. All you wanted to do was find out why your WiFi isn’t working and now if you have to hear that same silly recorded message one more time you might snap like a twig. It’s actually just like the time you spent half a day on the phone with your insurance company trying to get pre-authorization for an imaging test that you needed, but at least that time you eventually got something out of the entire debacle. It’s beginning to feel like you are going to be on hold until the end of time and never figure out why your Internet isn’t working. All you wanted to do was look up the take-out menu from the Chinese restaurant down the road and now you’re going to waste away to nothing waiting for “Chet” (there’s no way that’s actually his real name) the customer service rep from Hell to check the signals coming from your router into their comm and center or whatever it is they call the place where phone calls go to never be heard from again.
Chet is nowhere to be found, your stomach is growling, and you are just when you are about to scream “Ugh Verizon You’re Killing Me!!!” when your router springs into action. Relief!
