Rationality does still exist!

Just got a call from the Time Warner installer who was to come to my house this afternoon to "hook up" my Earthlink Cable. When I arranged the transfer, I'd told the woman on the phone that the cable was still physically connected, and the previous occupants had been using Road Runner, so I probably didn't need to trouble them with an actual visit. No, she insisted, someone has to come, make sure the cable is grounded, and get a signature.

Well, I told the guy just now that I'd moved the cable modem from the apartment, plugged it in, and it worked fine. He decided he had no need to visit, so he was just going to call them and tell them I'm all set. No need for me to meet him at the house. (Not that this would have been tough, a mile and a half away from work.)
