And about that cable box

So, I run home to get back before the cable guy arrives at 6:00.  Because, y'know, he said he was going to come and swap out the defective box.

I drive up at 5:45.  There's two cable guys there -- neither being the same guy who was here yesterday and promised to come back.

The other thing I notice about these cable guys is they do not seem to be carrying a new box.

To make a long story less long, here is what I learned:
- The guy who was here yesterday promised to come back today -- although today is his day off.
- So he told someone else to come, and rather than say "at 6:00," he said "after 5:00."
- There was, in fact, nothing wrong with the box he left; it was just programmed wrong.
- Something that his supervisor -- who had been waiting outside my door for 45 minutes -- figured out in under 10.

On the plus side, I have a nicely functioning cable box.  I'm going to the gym.
