The 11 Best Songs By Rogue Wave
It's a sign of the times when living without the internet is as fatal as losing a limb. I came home after a brief road trip to find my modem dead. My 6-month old modem which comes with a 2-year warranty. I called AT&T (the India branch, obviously). They told me that my modem, which has a manufacturing date of 2009 printed right on the side, was actually purchased in 2004...and therefore the warranty is no longer valid. What then followed was an hour long discussion on the physics of time travel and how it was impossible for me to purchase a 2009 model modem 5 years before it was even made. Though the guy on the phone was fascinated with my ability to purchase future items years before they were invented, he could not argue with the cold hard facts that were available on his computer screen: my modem was purchased in 2004...case closed.
It finally took getting to a 3rd tier manager, to get them to look at my actual phone bill to see where I had been charged for a modem just a few months back to get a new sent to me.
Then the icing on the cake. The modem came...2 days late...protected by a password that only AT&T knew and then refused to give me. Gotta love technology.
