Which is an unfair epithet. There is nothing basically wrong with being born out of wedlock. I really shouldn't paint those people with the same brush I use for the incompetent, bungling, bureaucratic jerks that are "The new ATT".

First of all, they couldn't even hook up my new phone correctly. I honestly wasn't asking for all that much - just a single phone line. I wasn't even insisting that the connection from the junction box to my apartment had to be working. All I wanted was a phone line from the street to the building.
