There are not many things worse than a Verizon phone problem. Glad you were able to upgrade and get everything working before you left. What a pain. I still think Cynthia has you beat for pre-trip drama.

Really looking forward to hearing all about your trip.

Didn't narrow it down to that until IT had had mine for a couple of hours, re-installed a bunch of stuff and I lost valuble time. I'm still having to default to Chrome which doesn't synch my xmarks right and I'm afraid as a result my bookmarks are breeding and multiplying.
Oh yes computer issues right now with my work computer. IT has come in twice and yesterday left my computer such a mess I had to change back some setting s they changed for no good reason. Of course they cannot figure out what is causing it and I don't want them touching my computer for fear they will render it as usless as my iphone.

That my dear is job security but I hate that it happens when you are ready to walk out the door but that is always better than after you are already out and they have to hunt you down.

It seems like that is always the way. I always feel like I am building a house of cards and at any moment some is going to come along and grab the bottom card.

Just checking in on your new trip report! I enjoy your trip reports and regulary stop in to see what's going on so I'll be along for this trip even if I don't post much. In fact, as I was working on this reply, the laptop froze up so I had to close the page. I couldn't get back on the DIS for some reason. I had another window open with Thumper Man's TR open. When I closed that window and tried again to go to the main DIS trip reports forum, it came right up. It was so weird! I think it's coincidence but I'm going to see if it does it again. I'll have one window open with your trip report and another with Thumper Man's and see how it goes. War of the trip reports! I wonder if having a trip report open on the Disneyland Trip Reports forum and this one at the same time caused a problem? Probably not. I'm going to blame it on my ISP!

I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip! Sorry for all the hassles trying to get out of work! I find that whenever I set a time I need to leave by, that's the day that everyone needs something about 5 minutes before that time!


Horrible does come in many forms.

I actually put my out of office up early as a warning.

Cynthia has me beat hands down. I don't have to deal with sports schedules and ID.

My drama is NOTHING compared to what she endures before a trip. My head might explode if it did.

The phone problem had me twitching until I got it fixed. If I was staying home I may have been a bit more patient but not while on the road.

Glad to have you along. I was having some odd things happening earlier from my work computer. When that starts happening I always wonder if IT is watching me and slowing me down on purpose so I will being on the DIS iinstead of pretending to actual work.

Girl! You didn't even give me a warning!

Well, I'm here now.

Now I know what happened with your phone! Hope your razor turns out to be a good phone for you.

My user name is one that has identified me since childhood.

As for the title I actually uttered those words.... When I will explain that is still a bit unknown.

Harldly had time for any warnings. I got this up right before I had to leave to get to work and I got home late last night. I was hoping if some people had not found their way by this evening I may have time to put up the bat signal.

The phone thing was quite frustrating at times. I am happy I just cut my losses on that phone and actually benefited greatly from doing so.
Same thing can be said of my marriage.

We swapped refrigerators at one time, didn't we? Glad to see you back and yes jump in and cut up, I can't control what goes on here.

Joining in.

I've lurked on some of your previous reports, but when I hear that someone had a horrible trip, I must admit, morbid curiosity gets the better of me
