Sun Friggin City...
The weekend is upon us again, and i
am left to reflect upon the
week's transpiring. An item of the most prominent note would be
Thursday when i had an opportunity to ride along with a field tech
at work. The majority of the day was spent in Sun City, and it
amazes me how you can ride down any one of those streets and feel
like you have warped back in time to the 1970's...a decade when it
was cool to cement green colored rocks into your sidewalk...a
decade when it was modern to have a blue house, a decade when
it was normal
when you spray painted your front yard in stark contrast to
everything around you. And it's been kept in pristine
like a child's prized comic book, so that you may see exactly what
it was like for our parents. Sometimes i wonder just who takes care
of all the yards, who trims the trees just so they look exactly like
the fruit they should bear. I imagine little elf-folk
groundskeepers with green hats running around at midnight, singing
catchy little rhymes, like,
"We work so hard, yes we work so
so the old don't die, oh we work
yes we try and try, and
sometimes we cry!
but we so work, so hard..."
And so on, and so forth. Ah, the
unseen magic of Sun City!
Aside from the environment of that
blissful city, it was a day well spent. It was nice to see the
other side of the telecommunications business. By the way, you will
probably never hear me say that i
work for the cable company. It just doesn't suit me, and it
downplays everything that my company is working towards...so from
now on, it's telecommunications. But anyway, i was able to see just
how hard we work to make sure that somebody's TV is working
properly, how much effort goes into ensuring that a customer has
access to the fastest speeds possible for their internet, and how
little the installer's are appreciated.
Blah. So there you have it,
today's blog. Enjoy the weekend, and we'll see you back on Monday.
