AT&T has got my goat. Do not read this if you are squeamish.

Updated on July 10, 2014

Chill out that is my son learning to play the piano. What a blast!

ATT is not meeting what they represent to the consumer.

In common parlance among JDs that would be called fraud. They do not have the capacity to provide the service that they represent and sell. They cannot hook up computers older than 4 years to their system called U-Verse. Play all kinds of games with that but they cannot hook Vista users. That is pretty clearly bull pucky. I have four devices that need connection. I have one that is 4 months old an it works great (sorry that is the one I am using to abuse you) I have a phone that is only 4 years old and it cannot use the system. I have a computer from 2008 that cannot use the system and one from 2010 unless we fully upgrade and spend hundreds? maybe more than a thousand to put them in order with this cool super duper cool U-Verse.

Now go easy on me here. They shut off my system ten times in three days and cost me 5 hours on the phone with the existing system. And then just declared it could not work. Come on so I bought the new system. Which appears cheaper and to have higher capacity and useage without overage.

I am sorry but please indulge me I am going outside, do not worry I have soft throwy things and stomp my feat and kick imaginary asses and slap the same faces that might help so hang on for a minute......

Well that helped But not enough. I preach love but that is because I am meaner than a junk yard dog. I am not the guy in ally afraid I am the one to be afraid of. I will tell this fun comment as graciously as I can: I would soon as rip your head off and crap down your throat before you heart stopped beating as I would shake you hand. I always think that is fun --- it is so silly. But sadly applies to a lot of my life.


Sorry i forgot let us put some fun music in here.. Please just smile with me!

I got nothin

Yes that silver is the mighty Colorado in the Grand Canyon.

And that water you see on the right shimmering can kill a woman by smashing into rock below.

And this old man has seen it happen. But I do not give a Goddamned I will jump in that river and I will take on ATT and whoever else stands in the way of right. Call me crazy. But I will live longer than you.


Today instead of pulling and killing my milkweed which is a damned weed. I watered them and nourished them and they are just damned weeds. But some idiot here on HP told me that the danged Monarch needs them. Well I have about two hundred. And no man shall harm my milkweed.

We are learning to keep all kinds of weeds that help the garden and beautiful little animals fed or away from other plants that we grow. Weeding out the bad and maintaining the good is a worthy endeavor.

My mom's favorite song.

My mom's memorial service was blessed by those trees.

We do not know when we go or how it will be. But we know darned well how to act today.

Do not give it to me --- I got plenty.

But please fight that fight --- if you do not then someone weaker that you will loose it. And it could hurt them far more than you. Stand up be tall and do it for the kid who is the mother or 2 and cannot do it for herself.

You all know i am a preacher man so I have to leave things in prayer. So pray for those without all my knowledge education. Pray for them that need our love and our protection from Corps and the Gov.

All I can say from my small chair is amen.

Do not take what does not belong to you.

      Thank you for that. I really believe that when I hire them that should be the deal. We are half done here.

      I have AT&T U-verse Wireless Network and no problems. My PC is older than 4 years, 5-6 at least. I have had them for about 2-3 years now. I switched from Comcast because of problems.

      I too have had problems with Uverse. Att supposedly upgraded me to this about a year ago, but all the tech support staff on the Indian subcontinent could not get it to work. Then I tried Direct TV high speed but that was just Att in disguise. Finally I just cut the chord.

      Your rants go in a thousand different directions but I like them.

      Beautiful Lady, I got so pissed off yesterday they sent two technicians out to my house in one hour. We are going to meet for coffee next week. Oh my goodness the pictures of their kids are just awesome. You know that we are all just children and some of us with children. The single guy kind of flirted with my 23+ daughter. Life is so cool.

      Nah, you aren't mean looking to me. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Besides I know what it is like to be irritated by some service companies. Sometime it takes the sting out of it and then sometimes they see these kinds of reviews and do actually do something for you. I have had that happen too.

      Lady if I write about it takes the sting out of it. I do reckon I will get over it. Thanks for sharing in my "pain". I always need to remember I am very mean looking, so I must work harder at love.

      LOL! I had Verizon and they did that to me and I went with someone else. I haven't had a problem since. I do hope that you get it all fixed soon. It is a crazy mixed up world we live in.
