I am full of much anger today!

This could be it -- the day we all knew was coming, the day I finally snap and hurt a Frenchie.

Our TV, Internet and phone have been turned off more than a month early as we prepare for our international move. I sit here impotent and full of rage. Alex has called and yelled some French words at them and has received a heartwarming response -- there's "nothing they can do."

Posse, you best airlift me out of here before I end up in prison.

In happier news, I just spent two of the best weeks ever with several of my best friends ever. I'd love to tell you about it but I'm about to go blind typing my worldly correspondance on an iPhone keyboard.

I'll be back somehow, though -- right after I dole out some final much-needed knuckle sandwiches.

You're plight makes me feel better. I've carried a grudge against the Germans since 1999 when we left that country after living there for a few years. Not only did every company we had done business with seem to want a piece of us, they seemed determined to remove any desire we may have had to ever return. God bless you and yours and your new home.

The horror! How many times have I already read that this happened to someone here in Paris! Which provider was it?

In Paris you seem to be able to choose only between being cut off way in advance or paying for an additional three months because you never know when they'll terminate your contract exactly. Dreading the day we have to decide when to tell Free that we're leaving.

Oh no, that sucks big time! I'd be furious too, how frustrating!! I've never lived in Paris but I lived in Mexico City for many years and these type of things happened all the time. You could either go crazy and end up with a heart attack (the city's elevation didn't help much with that either) or take a deep breath and hope for a miracle. C'est la vie! Hope all gets sorted out.

No problem. Just insist they reconnect it and they will. When you're on the plane to Seattle.

If you can blog from gaol, I'd go with the physical violence option...

Yo, TBFKAAAMIP!

I go away for a month and come back to tales of exotic debauchery and violence. Oh how I've missed ya!

Did you know you can get two hours of free wifi at a bunch of parks and stuff? There's a list of locations on the Mairie de Paris site...

Quite a few around your area. Some have better connection than others but it works really well. You just connect to the Orange network, open a browser and a login page pops up where you can select a free voucher. It just needs a name and email address (but it doesn't have to be a real one, shhh)

Hope that helps you stay connected long enough to banish impure thoughts. Or publish them :)

Oh no! Stay strong Sister! I'm sure Alex has more Frenchie words he can scream at them. And if you do dole out some knuckle sandwiches can you please take pictures? Or at least translate the scene into stick figures?

Thanks!

I feel for you! We didn't have that problem but were only recently able to close our Societe Generale account even though it was supposed to close in August. Soak it in girlfriend. And don't worry..although the bread this side sucks, life can still be good.

Go for the knuckle sandwiches with a lot of ketchup!Taste good.

I feel your pain! I was just ranting yesterday about the frustration of living an hour from Washington D.C. and yet having very limited access to internet/tv/cell service. These days you are almost crippled by no connectivity. I hope they can figure out a way to get your service back on, it would be very sad if we didn't get to hear your last days in Paris due to this problem!

PS - I've heard French prisons should be avoided at all cost.

I don't understand why this happened to you. I just left paris in May. I gave notice to Neufbox 3 weeks ahead of time and told them I wanted service cut off 1 day before my departure date.I sent their equipment back with the slips they provided me. I wasn't charged any extra months and they didn't cut it off 3 weeks early.it went off without a hitch..
