bone to pick

Picture this:

Last night, after a super fun, but exhausting weekend, J and I decide to bunker in and watch the Grey's finale (no, we're not Lost fans...crazy, I know) before heading off to bed.

I go to our DVR section, choose the episode, and we get going. (Probably should mention that on Friday I checked to make sure the recording lasted all two hours of the finale. It showed 120 minutes of recording, so all was well.)

If you don't watch Grey's, or haven't seen the finale might just be the best episode yet, possibly even better and more suspenseful than the one where Meredith has her hand in someone's chest holding a bomb.

I laugh. I cry. I am holding Jamie's arm with a death grip while there is a shooter loose in Seattle Grace.

Then, just before he's about to shoot one of the main characters...........the recording stops. At 1:05. Not 2:00 like it said before.


We try everything we can think of, and nothing works. I know this isn't the end of the's just tv. But I am attached to these characters...and sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what will happen!! (You watch the above trailer and tell me you aren't wanting to know!)

And in that moment, I'm afraid that my anger at Comcast got the best of me. Yes, Comcast, you sure did tick me off last night. (Watching it online wasn't an option for us as we currently don't have a home computer.) I've never been too picky when it comes to my cable provider. UNTIL...we moved into the condo and got AT&T U-Verse. It was amazing. There was plenty of space for recordings. Easy to navigate. It NEVER cut off anything. A plethora of channels to choose from.

It pretty much thought for you. And I became a huge fan.

When we moved into the new house, we tried to sign up, and were informed that U-Verse hadn't made it to our area yet. Dang. But no biggie...we go with Comcast. Well, since then, there has been episode after episode (no pun intended) of frustration. We've had friends go through frustrating stints with Comcast. And last night was the last straw for me.

So, what does that mean. Probably nothing, for now. I'll get over it. J and I will head to a friend's tonight to catch the end of the episode. I'll survive. soon as U-Verse gets to our area, Comcast will be losing a customer.

We have the same feelings about Comcast vs U-verse and have been through the same thing! I know your frustration!
