The Internet here has a way of stopping shortly after midnight. It should be a lesson of some kind, something like, "it's just too late to be sitting on the computer." That’s what happened last night, as if on cue. It’s only happened a few times, but it’s always at or around 12:17.
Any sensible person might think, “time for bed!” But with my drive to fix things, I usually take it as my cue to put in a call to Bezeq, our internet company.
Maybe you think that makes a little sense?
Ha. What you don’t know is that in our nearly year and a half of being their clients, Bezeq has literally NEVER solved a problem for us over the phone.
But they are usually unfailingly polite and speak passable English. It's almost a pleasure to call. So I do.
Last night when I called, just after midnight, the system politely informed me that there was a longer than usual wait time and that my place in line was... 31.
Some places you call, they play radio music for you. Not Bezeq.
