I originally scheduled my FIOS installation for July 13. Then I got an email asking me to reschedule; the customer service person to whom I spoke said my original installation order "dropped out of the system."

I rescheduled for today. I received an email this morning saying the technician would be here between 11:30 am and 2:30 pm. At 2 pm I went online and saw the new scheduled time was between 6:30 and 7:30 pm. Another check at 7 pm... underneath the photo of a smiling lady greeting a Verizon technician with the words "Congratulations-Your FiOS Installation Day Is Here!" was the notice:

We are sorry that we were unable to install your Verizon services. To reschedule your installation appointment for a later date, please select a new date that is convenient for you.

How about never? Is never good for you?

In the five years since I've been back here, Comcast has never been late on a service call. They've screwed things up from time to time, but immediately apologized and gave me credit on my bill to compensate for the inconvenience.

Bah. I don't need another hole drilled into the house, anyway.

Richard Bernard "Red" Skelton (July 18, 1913 – September 17, 1997) was an American entertainer best known for his national radio and television acts between 1937 and 1971 and as host of the television program The Red Skelton Show. Skelton, who has stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work in radio and television, also appeared in vaudeville, films, nightclubs, and casinos, all while he pursued an entirely separate career as an artist.

All men make mistakes, but married men find out about them sooner.

Any kid will run any errand for you, if you ask at bedtime.

Congress: Bingo with billions.

Exercise? I get it on the golf course. When I see my friends collapse, I run for the paramedics.

I get plenty of exercise carrying the coffins of my friends who exercise.

I haven't spoken to my wife in 18 months. I don't like to interrupt her.

I left home because I was hungry.

I married Miss Right. I just didn't know her first name was Always.

I'm nuts and I know it. But so long as I make 'em laugh, they ain't going to lock me up.

Live by this credo: have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness. Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations.

No matter what your heartache may be, laughing helps you forget it for a few seconds.

Our principles are the springs of our actions. Our actions, the springs of our happiness or misery. Too much care, therefore, cannot be taken in forming our principles.

Remember: Marriage is the number one cause of divorce.

Today's comics use four-letter words as a shortcut to thinking.

You know what I don't understand about a gas station? The cash box is out in the open, the office is out in the open, and they lock the restrooms.
