ATTENTION AT&T...yes my fellow duped and vexed e-mail users...I TOO have the dreaded at&T / yahoo combo. Mine froze up yesterday (1/31/2013) at ohhh..bout' 4 pm eastern time. With a pitiful (yet not entirely surprised) sigh, went about my biz, and tried to get at email again today. NOPE. Sooo...when i called the tech guy (who was mighty friendly but i'm thinkin' not from my hometown or any OTHER town in the usa)...he put me on hold for awhile, and then took control of my computer. well....SOMEONE had to take control of the darn thing. I proceeded to amusingly watch him cursor his evil lil' heart out all OVER my page, and verbally waffle so fast my neighbors became dizzy. HE couldn't find anything bad. NOOOOO.
I was put on hold once more whilst he conferred with his esteemed techie collegue.This astonishing and yo-yoing behaviour went on for a good 2 HRS.
Goodness me it sure IS at&t/yahoo, and i figure it's a BIG-UN allrighty. HOW do i know this? Well, I'm here to tell you all, that the internet/email service from...oh you know who by now...used to be ...um...not all that bad. REALLY. It wasn't until they partnered with the dark side...i mean yahoo...that things truly went amok.
And the most glaring reason for believing the fault lies with....uh...THEM? HERE GOES.
My "helper" finally re-appeared to give me this welcomed and "liar,liar pants on fire" NEWS.
This bastion of good cust. serv. told me that....it's CERTAINLY NOT the flawless AT&T that's responsible. heck no. nor is it that outstanding YAHOO. nope. it's stooopid YOU, and your OBVIOUSLY sub-standard computer that is at fault.
He THEN attempted to SELL me the services of ANOTHER techie at a ridiculous price...who would of course look into this FURTHER, and might be of more HELP. When I didn't bite, this swell guy advised that I get on FIREFOX while the gettin' on was good.
I predict that there will soon be a gazillion calls to them, tons more waffling on their part, and lots of posts here...if folks can FIND their way here of course. SHAME ON YOU at&t, for your complete lack of a moral code, backbone,
and your not so attractive demeaning view of us. thanks for listening guys. xoxo ps. may i just tell at&t....WE'RE NO DOPES...YOU DOPES !!! sorry.
