Except it isn’t, he is no more, NTT has gone, no longer exists apparently. Which is a problem for me because it is NTT who have cut our phone off, and NTT who we have to pay and NTT who have to turn it back on.
I wont go into the boring details of a certain teenager who ran up a mamouth landline bill because we curbed usage of the cell phone after mamouth cell phone bills. I will not translate into minutes how long she must have spent talking to the boyfriend while we slept, to have racked up this bill, because it doesn’t matter, I am so over arguing about phone bills with her.
White flag waving, I surrender. I stand defeated.
BUT how the Hell am I supposed to get my phone turned back on?
I called the free-dial NTT number for about 3 days and got a continuous busy signal. All I wanted was to find out where our local NTT office is so I could take time out of my busy miso making schedule to pay it.
Someone told me there is one near Justco, our local mega store ( that is also closing down in 5 days. what recession?)
So off we went. I found it, but it was closed, it actually had a sign in the window saying ‘ close’, if I could contact them I would point out their error. Next door is DoCoMo the cell phone shop. Now somewhere along the line, NTT and DoCoMo
teamed up and both names appear on the bill envelope.
So they’ll know. Right?
Wrong! They don’t know. I cannot pay the bill there, they do not know where the nearest NTT office is, but they can give me a free-dial number.
Thanks, you’ve been a big help.
So my morning entirely wasted I get home to find The Man, has been online and found out that NTT no longer exists, it now all belongs to DoCoMo, just DoCoMo, not NTT DoCoMo.
So how come the DoCoMo people couldn’t take my money, couldn’t tell me that, could not explain that NTT no longer exists.
So to pay our bill, it says we have to call the free-dial number and have them send another bar-coded bill so we can pay for our daughter’s love life at the frickin 7/11.
If I didn’t have relatives overseas I would just nix that damn landline.
