Yesterday we had an appointment for Verizon to set up FIOS at our new house. They were supposed to arrive anywhere between 1 and 5 p.m. Around 5:30 we call Verizon ... the technician is "on his way." Around 6 p.m. heavy rain starts to fall and lightning streaks the sky. My son, who has been home sick all week, is bored out of mind and has a terrible headache. My head is throbbing too because I've missed my 4 p.m. tea. (Note to self: buy tea kettle to use in new house during renovations!)
Finally Verizon technician arrives at 6:40 p.m. I feel sorry for him. It's going to be a 12-hour day for him. At least I had my knitting!
