We received Cliff's XM radio setup today. I went online and activated it, then we went to the grocery store. A local store, by the way, because a fellow blogger suggests we accommodate our home-town businesses. So of course I didn't find half the items I needed. But I digress.
We arrived back home to find no action on our XM radio. Well, that's par for the course. Thank goodness there's an 800 number. I called that, and they re-sent the activation, or something like that. I waited twenty minutes as instructed. Still no action.
I called the 800 number once more, this time talking to a real person whose phone was cutting out so badly, I couldn't make out a thing he was saying. I hung up.
After stewing for awhile, I called yet again. This time I got a lady who spoke nice and loud, thank you very much, and whose phone did not cut out. The only problem was that she was obviously in India, and her accent made her quite difficult to understand. She gave me the same instructions I had received before, and once again, I complied. I am right now waiting for twenty minutes to expire. Do I expect the radio to work this time? Nope.
But my daughter is off work tomorrow. And she's great with tech support people!
