Dish Network Is Not Off to a Good Start

As I mentioned earlier this morning, Y and I are getting satellite tv. Our Dish Network install window was from 8:00am-12:00pm today, but it is now 1:20pm without a technician having shown up yet. The installer did call me earlier, around 9:00am to say that he planned on being an hour late, because his first installation was taking longer than planned. No word from him since then. I hope that after the installation eventually takes place that we don’t have other snags or snafus with Dish Network.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.

    Believe me, brother, I sympathize. I sympathize all over the walls!! And I hadn’t considered that age old saying before, but if it ain’t true, it’s not about to be age old, is it?

    Sympathizing all over the walls is exactly what I need–we’re can’t get Dish Network at all. I just wrote about it in a new post.
