    As former military and wife/mother to military I know exactly what he said. But I shall not repeat it

    I shall not repeat what he had to say on the matter...
    That's probably a good call. 😉

    A friend of mine lives at the bottom of a hill (a real one, not a 10 foot pile of dirt!) and mobile phone coverage is patchy at best. Unfortunately for him, the rich people in the big houses at the top of the hill don’t want nasty things like phone towers and masts near them (and they don’t need them, anyway) so the people in the “social housing” at the bottom of the hill can use a landline, take a bus to another area or wait until they are somewhere else and pick up all the missed calls. I won’t repeat what he has to say about it, either!

    We moved into a house in a brand new neighborhood a bit out into the country. Initially the cell phone service was horrid. We could hear the phone ring but we couldn't keep a connection to answer the darn thing... The empty lot across the street had a tall pile of dirt, maybe 10 feet high. We discovered if we climbed up on the dirt pile we could get phone reception...We were having loads of trouble with the builder at the time and he would rarely return our calls, but when he did call my hubby would grab the phone, race out the front door and try to get to the top of that blasted pile of dirt across the street in time to answer the call. I would venture a guess that he was successful about 20% of the time. I shall not repeat what he had to say on the matter...

    A sense of humor is what keeps us sane.

    I'd be tempted to put quotations marks around "special."

    Years ago we could call out but couldn't receive calls, people were telling us they were calling and calling and we weren't answering. We had neighbors call us and sure enough the phone never rang. I reported this to the phone company, they set up one of those appointments where they'll be there between 8 am and 6 pm, so I stayed home all day and no one showed up. The next day I called the phone company and they said a tech had brought up our line and found a dial tone, so cancelled the appointment. I asked why no one had told me the appointment had been cancelled, and she said they'd tried over and over again to call.

    That says it all, really. I was beginning to wonder if it was just me, but no, it's not, thank goodness

    Welcome back! I missed you.

    Those phone companies are insane. Years ago the cable company accidentally shut our phone off. I had an awful time getting someone to come out. After a week we called from the office to inquire what was going on. The girl insisted they had called us repeatedly to schedule, but we didn't answer the phone. What!!!!!
    My husband said, " What part of The Phone Doesn't Work do you not understand? "
