Things not worth waiting for

Yet again, I find myself waiting on the cable company. The new upstairs neighbors wanted HDTV service, and since the house has a single address, service can't be split up between units. That requires upgrading to digital cable. Good news is that it will reduce my cable and internet costs (they're plugged into my router, too); bad news is cable installation; worse news is that the installation was yesterday, but they neglected to hook up a digital cable box down here. Color me furious. And though I'm not going anywhere (still sick), I hate knowing that I'll be interrupted by the installation today (assuming they don't screw it up again). Not thrilled that I'll need to reconfigure my TiVo afterward, either—that kind of thing rarely goes smoothly.
