Impending Service Interruptus



Today may finally be the day when my wife, Arlynda, loses her job as a claims processor for [United Healthcare].  Be assured that it has been a long time possibly coming.  In fact, she has been on “final warning” status several times since last January on account of her own steadily declining health condition, but the company kept allowing her (naturally-speaking, of course) to move to a different team that was assigned a different task in the process, which would start the clock all over again.  So, regardless of just how much the powers that be at the company are truly aware of the part that they have been playing in our Heavenly Father’s plans for us, they certainly cannot be held in any disdain over expecting their employees to perform at a certain level.

Anyway, United Healthcare has been paying for our internet connection since they let her start working from home, and with the service actually being in their name, along with consideration being given to the sensitivity of the information she regularly handles, I fully expect our connection to be severed very soon (if not immediately) upon the completion of the final determination of her employment status, which could come at any time during the next few hours.  Needless to say, with me being such a wonderful person in every way, shape and form, I did not want to leave any of you wondering what may have happened after noticing that I have stopped publishing “stuff.”  Hence, the reason for this rather melodramatic notification.

No, I do not expect to be offline for very long, but considering the fact that customer satisfaction is as high on [Mediacom’s] list of corporate priorities as it is on most of the other cable companies’ lists, it may take several days before they get over here to set things up again.  Ironically, this will actually be saving us a bunch of money.  For as we are getting another internet connection in our name again, we will be also putting our cable television service in our name again.  Alas, it is a long stupid story about how we came to have to put it in Arlynda’s mother’s name when we first moved to where we have been living for the last six years or so, but suffice to say that we will all be very happy to finally be able to get it straightened out…we hope.

Yeah, I may have done went and really lost my mind this time.  For the change in our cable service is not the only thing that I am actually looking forward to.  For I have got it in my head that Arlynda will be allowed and enabled to make it fairly big in the blogosphere, along with some other possible avenues for financial income opening up for us to travel.

Nonetheless, it is going to be some very tough sledding for at least a little while.  For aside from what little [S.S.I.] provides us, we will be losing our own health insurance, and I am most definitely not looking forward to becoming so personally acquainted with what [Obamacare] has to offer so soon.  Still…


***UPDATE***
7:00 p.m. CDT October 9, 2012
Well, I don’t know what to tell you.  For she participated in the scheduled phone conference with her bosses and the rest of the team she is currently on, and after it was over, which is when she expected her main boss to break the news, nothing was said either way.  So, I will keep on keeping on until someone has the plug pulled.


Morning After
Maureen McGovern
There's got to be a morning after
If we can hold on through the night
We have a chance to find the sunshine
Let's keep on lookin’ for the light
Oh can't you see the morning after
It's waiting right outside the storm
Why don't we cross the bridge together
And find a place that's safe and warm

It's not too late
We should be giving
Only with love can we climb
It's not too late
Not while we're living
Let's put our hands out in time

There's got to be a morning after
We're moving closer to the shore
I know we'll be there by tomorrow
And we'll escape the darkness
We won't be searchin’ anymore

There's got to be a morning after
There's got to be a morning after
There's got to be a morning after
There's got to be a morning after
There's got to be a morning after
There's got to be a morning after
There's got to be a morning after
There's got to be a morning after
There's got to be a morning after
There's got to be a morning after
There’s got to be a morning after

  3. Well if you have any problems with customer service I will gladly send Duke to take care of them. He says he would be happy to put the bite on them free of charge because he's not worried about bringing home the bacon.
    Seriously though, I do hope you won't be MIA for long and I wish you both all the best.

  7. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! I do believe that Duke would be quite helpful with Arlynda's dealings with her bosses, as well.
