Ok, this Thanksgiving I did something different. I tested a phone line on the outside of my friend’s house. I received a call from AT&T about 11 a.m. telling me that I was listed as a person to contact for a friend of mine who had called in a phone problem. Since the operator could not get a response from my friend, she called me and told me how to test the line to see if the problem was outside or inside the house. I grabbed a corded phone and my hubby and off we went.
The box on the outside of the house was easy enough to find, and sure enough, there were two test plugs. They both were dead so the problem is outside the house which is a good thing for my friend. Had the problem been inside, she would have to pay a hefty fee to get it fixed. However, the repair truck won’t be there until next Wednesday so I left my cell phone for my friend to use in an emergency.
I am thankful for our communication network, even when it has a few mishaps.
