One hour on the phone to toss the pre-paid wireless into oblivion.
That was yesterday before the post came with another 3 page account for the ADSL broadband that was never connected.
It was impossible to figure out the amount to pay even if I was connected to the internet.
Another hour on the phone, half for the phone account child to realize that I should be at the Internet account department.
Internet account department adult male admits defeat and asks me to hold while he goes for an oxygen break. At last it is finished (whisper that) and the non-existant ADSL is non-existant. My homeline with pensioner concession is restored. (whisper that)
"Could I please have an amended account so I can pay?"
I can hear breathing, mumbling, breathing and he speaks! I owe Telstra $8.64.
I'll be paying that on Thursday.
