Just As I Thought

In praise of AT&T

Ah, the American Telephone and Telegraph company, always looking out for me.
They knew that I was really stressed over the last few weeks, so they kindly arranged to make things easier and quieter.
First, they did something wacky to my phone so that I wouldn’t be disturbed — calls would just never ring through at all. Peaceful!
Then, they arranged to have no service at all when I visited family in southern Virginia. Quiet!
And lastly, they kindly delayed all my voicemails so that they wouldn’t bother me until at least 24 hours after the message was left. Efficient! This meant that I’d never be disturbed by something, oh, urgent or by someone who was calling to offer me work that might pay well but interrupt my relaxation.
Thanks, AT&T. Love ya.
