So I finally have my home phone line working.
I called my brother last night and he answers with - "Helloo??!"
Brother: Your name on my call display says..."dry loop"?!
I start laughing.
I have Bell Sympatico for my internet service, and when you have internet service through your phone line but have no home phone, its called a dry loop.
So I call Bell today...and they couldn't *quite* grasp what I was saying.
Bell: So when you call Bell your name shows up as dry loop?
Me: No. When I call people with call display my name shows up as dry loop.
Bell: So your phone is going to be hooked up this weekend?
Me: No. Its already hooked up, that's how I know about my name display when I call people.
Bell: Can I get your account number?
Me: I haven't had a bill yet, so I don't know my account number.
Bell: You haven't had a bill yet?
Me: No. Again. I've only had the phone since Monday.
Bell: Just to make sure I understand you....when you call people your name shows up as "dry loop" and (long pause)...you don't want this?
Me: No. I don't want this.
Any horrific/funny customer service stories? Do tell!
