Second-class phones, they're making second-class phones
My dial tone is missing. I guess the storm soaked the phone lines at home. This happened once before and it came back on once it dried out. Meanwhile, I called the phone company, and they have scheduled a technician to come look at the problem some time between later and forever.
Thanks to the two people who send me "Mosh Pitt" as a final name for the young lad.
