Phone Problems = Unexpected Day-Off

That about sums up my Friday. TGIF indeed, eh?

I wasn't even aware there was something wrong with my phone this morning. Periodically I would check if my work phone has a dial tone by pressing the speaker phone. I did that this morning. What do you know...no dial tone. I checked to see if it's plugged and everything. It looks fine. I tried calling it using the other phone and it rang. Still there was no dial tone. I didn't worry much about it anymore since it seems to be receiving calls fine. Not so fast. I got my first call...I picked up. I couldn't hear the other end. That's when I decided to call the phone company.

To make the long story short, I got an unexpected day off today. The phone lines are still on and off. At first it was only one line. Later in the day, the other one also started acting up...while I was on the phone with the husband. Every once in a while I check them and there are times when they're working. Right now, they're not. We were told it's a system failure and the earliest they can be fixed is Monday Oh well. At least I'm able to use my sleeping cellphone. It's a go-phone that I've had for more than 2 years now. I keep renewing it because I didn't want the minutes to expire. It's a lot cheaper than getting a regular cellphone line because it's less than 10 bucks a month. It's nothing fancy. It's only for calling and receiving calls. I even had the internet connection turned off because I would accidentally launch it and it charges me a quarter everytime it happens.

Anyway, that's my Friday folks. Have a wonderful weekend!

Ay naku Huling, karaniwan na lang yang "no dial tone" dito. Kaya ang internet dusa rin! Ang problema, lagi ninanakaw ang cable ng phone sa gabi. Wala namang ginagawa ang kapulisan para mahuli. Kainis!

Good for you! At least nag day-off ka bigla. Time to rest naman daw kasi!

Hope you had a great weekend!
