My wife is moving us from Bell to Rogers. The switch happens Sunday night. Let’s see how it goes

Rogers Cable InstallerNotice the title – “my wife” is moving us from Bell to Rogers. This isn’t my doing, in fact, if it were my decision I would leave well enough alone. Our home phone and cable have been with Bell for years (although our internet is with Rogers), and we have been running quite successfully, without incident, for the same length of time.

Why are we is she switching ?

My wife is on Rogers Day Time Live once per month. She would like to watch the show, and her aired episodes, but, we don’t get Rogers Day Time Live because, we’re not with Rogers !

Problem fixed. Right ?

Well sort of. The only challenge is getting our home phone and TV switched from Bell to Rogers. So, my wife called Rogers on Tuesday and made a Sunday 7PM appointment. My first reaction when I heard the time was – “seriously, Rogers is going to show up on Sunday evening, at 7PM, run the outdoor cable, do what they need to do, in the dark, and be finished the same evening ?” Her response was “yes, that’s what they promised”.

Now, my question is – can Rogers actually get this project done, and completed successfully with one visit. First they need to show up ! Then, I’m half expecting a problem. I’m hoping for dial tone (at least we both have cell phones) when they leave.

Did Rogers get this done right ? NO ! And it gets worse. To continue reading – click here

Among other things, the best way to secure yourself from spy gadgets and annoying calls is to use mobile blocker. Block mobiles around you.
