If It Ain't Broke...

I accidentally fell asleep earlier this evening and wound up taking a three hour nap which has led me to my current wide awake condition. What better to do at this hour than hunker down for an evening of fascinating Court TV, right?

So there I am, deeply enthralled, just about to find out "Who Did It" when the signal starts flickering out and I'm left with a blue screen.

Tha hell?

My first thought was, "I know I paid my cable bill...my internet is still working, (same company), so what the F is going on?"

I then get another flicker and the local government station is playing where Court TV used to be. I peruse the channels and realize some are showing, some are not and some are so NOT where they are supposed to be.

Yep, I am watching the cable company rearrange every fucking channel they have. Why the hell do they do this? To fuck with us? Just when I finally learned the channels I really like to memory, they go and change it all up. I'll bet they are sitting in their cushy little chairs right now, gleefully throwing channels around all over the board and periodically spinning around in said chairs while everyone there laughs like loons.


Last time I checked they were halfway done so I guess I'll get to spend the next half an hour searching for my stations and trying to remember where they are for future reference.

And they didn't even give us notice or a new channel line up pamphlet. Bastards.

That happened to me once. ESPN Classic was discontinued while I was in the middle of watching a game. Just cut off! No warning! No longer carried! WTF?!

The same thing recently happened to me. I'm still trying to figure out where all my favorite channels are.
