"I have written about my frustrations with service before, but I wanted to share three more items.

"For those of you who have not seen today's (January 9th, 2011) "Pearls Before Swine" comic strip, it mirrors some of my frustration with service groups. This was the first item I wanted to share.

"The second item was with my Internet service. For many years I had two different land-based telephone lines coming into my house. One of them was a "residential" account, and one of them was a "business" account. Having worked for the telephone company in my younger days, I even understood the rationale between having two different types of accounts, and charges, for basically the same service. I did not necessarily agree with the rationale, but I understood it. In addition to this, my DSL-based Internet (which had a static IP address associated with it) came into the house on the same circuit as my residential number, but was billed to my business account."
