Can you hear that?

It's the sound of my toilet not running and the tank not dripping into the bowl.

For about a week I've been fiddling with the guts of my toilet to try and make the adjustments necessary to get it to stop dripping and filling and dripping and filling and dripping and filling. It was to the point that I was actually turning off the water to the toilet between flushes.

I don't know why I'm so reluctant to call someone to fix stuff... I'm UNDER WARRANTY after all and I need to take advantage of that while I can!

So I broke down and called the plumbing contractor today and within an hour two dudes were here takin care of bidness. 20 mins later, a cacophony of quiet was cascading from my commode. That means they fixed it.

Still no word on the noises in the wall... it's actually kind of cleared up a little on it's own. Still, it's weird that someone came and looked at it, offered a solution for diagnosis, assured me that action would be taken and since then... nothing. How much pushing do I want to do? How much should I HAVE to do?

A fellow Atlantan is having customer service issues of his own. I know we all have cable TV issues but few of us take the time to really document the whole debacle! It's a shocking and AMAZING blow by blow account of what just ONE person is dealing with trying to get cable installed. I can't imagine how many other stories like his are happening all over the country right now.

Fixing the toilet? Yeah, not my yob, man. That a job for Super TheHusband.

I gotta justify keeping him around, you know.

Glad the toilet is fixed. The cable company sounds as bad as Mediacom here in Iowa. I spent two days waiting for someone to show up to install cable and then the minute he left it didn't work.
