My entry to “What today means to me” Week 3.52

in CCC7 months ago


Today is June 19, 2021. I have returned after having some difficulties with keeping a proper internet connection.

It turns out that last week a rainstorm came in from a storm off the coast of the Caribbean Sea and entered my city. The rain quickly flooded everything. The power went out and of course the internet connection as well.

After a few hours the storm went away, the water levels in the streets went down and then the power came back on. But you know what? The wifi never came back. I bought a mobile package of megabytes so I could get on the platform but it was impossible. It’s imposible to do anything with it, unless it’s done quickly and constantly.

So I was cut off for 6 days from the world thanks to a storm that visited my Caribbean shores. The worst part is that when I checked with the internet service customer service office it turned out that I had a debt and my service was cut off.

Despite the fact that I was in the office just two months ago, asking why I couldn’t pay my debt, seeing as no bank or page I went to said I didn’t have any debts at all for several months, and they told me that I had none because there were failures with the fiber optic connection and the service was suspended until further notice… Except I had service.

Back to the present, 6 days later, after I paid my supposed debt that I didn’t have, another blackout came and with it my connection returned. Thank God for that.

These are the things happen only in “Alice in Wonderland” but don’t happen here in my country. Apparently everything is an invention of the citizens.

I am glad that everything turns out alright for you now. @wakeuokitty has noticed that you are gone for a week and wonder if anything bad happens to you. Now that you are alright, we are relieved.

Sadly you paid for the debts that are not supposed to be yours. Did someone use your account or name without telling?

No, it wasn't that. They suspended me from paying my wifi a year ago, when the pandemic started. 2 months ago they opened the office, I went to the cantv office to ask why they have a year without collecting my monthly debt and they told me something nonsense. And also that I didn't have any debt. Well now the debt has appeared and instead of notifying me they cut the wifi service. I already paid the debt for a year, but that is an office of only appearances, nobody knows anything about anything.

I had left the contest in the air, just when they cut off my wifi, the Thursday before I had to catch up with the contest.
