I’m not a techie
I really don’t care
What cords are which
Or what goes where
Recently I had nightly noise
From a receiver, a tech “toy”
Called and they said okay
We’ll send a new one straightaway!
It did come quickly, I admit
Opened to find the same old –it!
Refurbished, had a few scratches
So I called to see what the catch is
Meantime an email also arrived
A day after I surmised
I needed to get a replacement
It said, don’t throw it in the basement
Or sell, just recycle is what they meant
No problem but the new one didn’t work
The next phone guy was a jerk
Rude and sort of condescending
Grandsons hear his voice unending
“We can upgrade for a fee”
He said almost nastily
Replied I think this is a used one
“Would cost extra to get a new one”
Pointless not to accept my fate
The new bill I won’t pay
We set it up, worked for ten minutes
Now it’s off and I can’t use it.
It’s late I’m tired, not ready to deal
Or I’d tell the phone guy how I really feel.
