It has happened. The city is crippled. I have been officially told who knows when service will be repaired. Mercury is in retrograde until tomorrow. But the communications havoc at ATT on the main lines in Los Angeles will go on long after Mercury, the planet that plays communication havoc in astrology, goes direct.
I have no service both at home and at temple. Internet. Phones. Everything. In a world where we stay connected to one another through these devices it puts a kink in communicating with one another when the main lines are down.
ATT just told me two weeks til home internet service may be repaired!
Indeed this is a spiritual lesson. A lesson in patience. A lesson in kindness to those working for ATT. They too are frustrated. Customers go off on them.
Have some compassion for the technicians. But maybe it is time to consider switching carriers!!!
It is also time to demand better from the FCC and from our Congress people who oversee the FCC. It is time to demand better from our statewide Public Utilities Commissioners to stop bowing down to the ATT God and demand real service rather than being held hostage. That is what is happening now. We are being held hostage by a company that doesn’t maintain the lines properly so that when it rains the lines go bad.
Especially so in these times when communicating electronically is part of the glue that holds our society together: social networks, business networks, community networks, emergency networks.
So if I don’t post daily you will understand the communication disaster that is happening right now. I wish us all patience, understanding, kindness and perhaps this is a gift we all need to slow down, disconnect and talk to our neighbor next door again!!!!
