Why are things so difficult?

So, I'm supposed to begin working from home tomorrow - something I've been waiting for. It's only taken us 3 weeks to get "trained" and to be able to bring our equipment home to set up. It's been here since Wednesday, it's been set up...and no dial tone. I didn't want to deal with it on my days off (Thurs and Fri) and IT isn't there over the weekend. I did my time at the office, I'm looking forward to tomorrow, hoping I can get the issue fixed.

HA! D's (the new D in my life, not the ex) looking over the install instructions, checking things and sees a note "no power cord" that was on my modem - which I had to bring in last week for IT to configure. And guess what? It's not configured. Yeah. I know, my fault for forgetting the power cord - but not once did they alert ANYONE, including the trainer that it wasn't configured. She even called regarding that little "missing power cord" note. And IT knew we were taking the equipment home on Wednesday. I mean, they had to validate parking and sign for us to take the equipment out of the building with the security guards downstairs - so they HAD to know. I'm frustrated because someone could have said "Yeah, we couldn't configure it - she'll have to bring in her cord" or something Wednesday, before I took stuff home and got all excited and geared up.

I just hope it's something easy to fix and I don't have to catch a bus into the office tomorrow. *grumble*

    I think things are finally settling in. We've been in the apartment about 2 months now. I still need to find some places to put things and there are…
