No, really. They are the root of all evil. They are responsible for world hunger (because the amount of time I've wasted on the phone trying to get DSL service working, I could have gone out there and grown enough food to feed a freakin' village) and they are absolutely the cause of world war, because at this point I am quite ready to kill the first thing that comes by and presents an opportunity.
I still don't have DSL service set up at the new house. And I don't have an approximate due date. This despite starting the whole process sometime back in mid July. I am not amused.
