So we’re having a neighbor moving in soon, that’s great. Of course she wants internet, and it needs to be installed before she moves in. I get that. What I don’t get though is that the ones, who are stopping by to install it, are retarded idiots with no common sense!
It all started last week, when there was suddenly some guy outside our living room window, the one furthest away from our neighbor mind you, and he just trotted through our garden and flowerbed. My dog freaked out, because he knows it’s our territory, and thus no one just runs around there. Can’t say it left me untouched either, so I went outside to ask him what the heck he was doing, and he was just like “I need to install some cables, so I just had a look around.” Seriously? I told him to not just walk around the property of someone else he wasn’t invited to, not to stomp around my garden and flowerbed and to at least KNOCK ON THE DOOR before doing anything on an address you’re not supposed to have anything to do with. He agreed, though his facial expression told me, that he just wanted me to move out of his way. Great! I left it at that, since he said he would not enter my property again.
Then today, while still in bed, my dog starts barking like crazy. I could hear some men talking loudly, one right in front of my door, and one standing on my terrace, both with shovels in their hands. I open the door to ask them what they were doing, and they just said “We’re digging up your terrace to install cables for the internet.” Say what…? What the actual fuck? I tell them that I know nothing about this, and that it must be the neighbor they need to install cables for, because I have internet, and it’s working just fine. They pretend to agree; that it must be the neighbor if I know nothing about it, but they’re still gonna dig up my terrace. One of the workers was just smiling at me like I’m some idiot, and I ask him to stop it, after which he just smiles even more, still wanting to dig everything up.
At that point, I change from halfway friendly, to being enraged like shit! He then tells me I can go call the provider, and laughs at me. Fine! We have the same internet provider who hired them to install the cables, so I get through with my customer details really quick, and explain my situation to them. And guess what? They didn’t know why they were at my address either! I was told that some higher up would call me as fast as possible, but I never got a call. Go figure. But at least he called those knuckleheads outside, and they moved all their shit to the neighbor’s terrace, where they started digging.
So my best guess is that they don’t know the alphabet, and thus couldn’t tell the difference between a B and a C, so they just decided to dig wherever. Also, they decided not to knock first, although it must have been pretty darn clear to them, that someone lives here. It’s not the empty house where they were ordered to install cables. We have furniture on our a terrace, and the dog was barking, so how hard can it be to notice that and FUCKING KNOCK ON THE DOOR??? It would have solved the issue right away! Or at least I would like to believe that, because I did tell them it’s the neighbor’s house that needs internet, and they still wanted to dig up my entire terrace.
Now I want to know what the fuck is wrong with people like that. What makes them think that it’s okay to ignore people’s privacy and rights? Why laugh at them when they obviously have a brain and know better? And why have I not received an apology for their more than shitty behavior towards me, and the major mistake they were about to make? If the guy that needs to call me actually gets his finger out his bum and does so, I will tell him that I demand an apology from those two retards. It’s the very least they can do.
Imagine if I hadn’t been home. I would have had no terrace anymore, because they were so darn sure that they needed to dig here. Then what? Funny thing is, that our terrace is fenced, so they would have needed to break it down to enter with any machines. It’s a scary thought to imagine someone being so utterly dumb, that they’re willing to destroy your property without any second thoughts. One could say that the thing is settled now, because I got to complain to the right company, and they are now digging in the right spot, but it doesn’t feel anywhere near done yet. Then what do I want? I want them to understand that what they did was wrong. That they need to listen to people, and not just do whatever they please. I want them to apologize to me, not only for almost making a huge mistake by nearly destroying my property while thinking no one was home, but also because one of them ridiculed me. It’s not okay. It just isn’t.
To top it all off, FFXIV is down for 24 hours because of the new patch, and I sooo wanted to smash monsters to let out some steam. Now it’s just building up inside of me instead, UGH!
