"How Internet Marketing Made Me 'Drop-Dead' Gorgeous!"

"Those who know their minds do not necessarily know their hearts." La Rochefoucauld

Internet marketing fascinates me. It fascinates me so much that I am atrepparttar computer 12 hours a day. However, after a few months I noticed that my posterior was beginning to spread out and fitrepparttar 102117 contours of my desk chair a bit too comfortably. I was getting very pale and forrepparttar 102118 first time became aware that gray was now my natural hair color.

Action was needed and this is what I did:

Because I was getting up at 4 a.m. to be able to spend 12 hours a day onrepparttar 102119 computer, I found that I was getting hungrier duringrepparttar 102120 day. But instead of eating Fritos, I started having boiled eggs and apples as snacks. I quit putting chips on my grocery list. My husband complained about not having munchies inrepparttar 102121 house. I told him if he wanted them that much, he could buy them himself.

Because I was getting up earlier inrepparttar 102122 morning to spend 12 hours a day atrepparttar 102123 computer, I started eating my dinner earlier inrepparttar 102124 evening. That meant my husband and I no longer had dinner together. He started bellyaching that there wasn't anything prepared for him when he got home from work. I told him it was about time he learned how to cook.

Because I was spending 12 hours a day sitting in front ofrepparttar 102125 computer, I decided I needed to spend at least half an hour onrepparttar 102126 exercise bike. So I got it out ofrepparttar 102127 garage and set it up inrepparttar 102128 living room so that I could listen torepparttar 102129 stereo while I exercised. My husband objected about having to look at it while he watched TV. I told him that was too bad and HE could use some exercise himself.

Customer Disservice

Written by Bob Osgoodby


I recently had a problem, and called my ISP (who shall remain unnamed) for help. I could not dialup torepparttar ISP and get connected. I let this ride for a day, inrepparttar 102116 event they were having a problem, butrepparttar 102117 next day when I still couldn't get connected, I gave them a call.

After listening to their computerized message, which told me everything except how to brush my teeth, I finally selectedrepparttar 102118 appropriate option. I was givenrepparttar 102119 approximate hold time, (which I appreciated) put them onrepparttar 102120 speaker phone and went about other things I was doing.

After 5 minutes or so, I was connected to a customer service rep, explainedrepparttar 102121 problem and was put through a series of things to try, which I did. None of them worked. I was toldrepparttar 102122 software had become corrupted, and I would have to reinstallrepparttar 102123 software from my Windows CD. I explained that I could dialup to other services andrepparttar 102124 problem was only with their service. No matter I was told, I would have to reinstallrepparttar 102125 software. I couldn't immediately put my hands onrepparttar 102126 Windows 98 installation CD, so he told me to call back when I did.

Unable to find it, I called my daughter and she had a copy. I picked it uprepparttar 102127 next day and called back. I asked forrepparttar 102128 customer service rep I had talked to, and was told he wasn't inrepparttar 102129 office I was connected to. Seems he was housed in Tennessee and now I was talking with someone in California. I told this rep I was instructed to call back for instructions on how to reinstallrepparttar 102130 software. This one told me to turn off my computer and then restart it. When it still didn't work, he told me he couldn't do anything. Now this guy barely spoke English. Not satisfied with his answer, I asked to speak to a supervisor who told merepparttar 102131 problem would be referred to their research department and someone would call me back within 48 hours.
