I’m on a dog walk around the block yesterday and I notice a jury-rigged bell line coming out of a nearby bell tower. It is the only one. It snakes up a tree and I follow it. It is a growing curiosity – so the dog and I follow. The bell wire jumps from tree to tree winking at me in the sunlight. I think. ‘curious-er and curious-er. Has someone set up their house to receive free bell?’
I lose track of the wire blended now against the sky and retrace my last sighting and finally discover the bell wire ends up at a house. It was wrapped around branches and finally wrapped around a tree branch ending up at someone’s roof. ‘Wow I thought! That is so blatant.’ When I returned home I go up to the office where my husband works from home and tell him what I discovered. He assures me that it has been that way since winter. He talked to a Bell repair guy about it, and he told my husband that a Bell representative “actually” did this as a repair. No underground wire pushed through the ground like they used to offer. In this case, they jury-rigged some jumbled wire they hung from tree to tree like growing vines.
Now my husband and I are customers with a Bell provider. We like the package they offer and I am sure I am their “dream” customer as I have said to them, “When your customer service becomes as good as you sales team slick offers then I’ll make changes or add to our services. “ No not happening. But I am looking forward to seeing if they make a different choice with that customer’s wire or if that is indicative of service to come. I believe positive change is always possible.
