It was a 3 day move...in order to move my sister 5 small blocks to the North, and to move me 8 blocks to the South.
Things went relatively smoothly. We managed to get out of the old place with minimal theatrics. I am VERY glad to leave behind the prick of a landlord (as well as the silverfish infestation). I will miss my mountain view and the raccoons on the roof.
The main problem struck when, even though I had scheduled the internet-setup-guy to come in the afternoon on March 1st, he instead came in the morning. My new landlord was here getting the place ready for me, so he let him in and the guy SUPPOSEDLY set everything up.
Only he didn't.
So, long story short. I was without internet for the past 5 days. I only just got it back this afternoon.
I have to say that despite the screw-up with set-up, I'm really happy with the ISP that I chose so far. I chose an independent ISP (not one of the big 3 in Canada). Everyone I talked to on the phone was super nice and helpful and friendly. I didn't even need to ask for a discount on my bill, they offered it as soon as they realized what had happened. The guy I called on the 1st, graciously let me yell at him even though it wasn't his fault, and instead of telling me to calm down or whatever, he just yelled along with me about what a shitty situation it was and how frustrated he also was with it...and yeah, I kind of wanted to date him after that - I'm not sure if that makes me weird. He probably lives in Toronto though. I think it's a Toronto based company. Also, you know, there's the fact that I don't know anything about him besides the fact that he's very good at his job. :-P
Now, I believe I have a LOT of internet to catch up on...I hear there were cake shenanigans...
