Patience was never one of my virtues—one reason I hate to travel unless it is absolutely necessary.

Several years ago, the local cable technicians would blame the summer heat as being the problem, when the internet was down. Complain enough and they would finally come out and check the connections. Usually, the problem was in an area ‘hub’.
What a mess.
