— I have a landline phone for telecommuting to work, and am having tech difficulties. The phone company is not being very helpful in fixing it, which is causing me all sorts of headaches. If I could switch companies I would, but they are all just as bad. If I could switch, this would be the “last straw”, but I have no options, which is why they are so “helpful”. For any of my international readers, I’ll mention that the third line of the haiku stands in for swearing. It’s a convention of old comics to write it with symbols like that.
