It's Official- I Am The Most Pathetic Loser On The Planet
Posted 27 July 2012 - 12:29 AM
I am soooo stressed that this has triggered my previously under control asthma.
Sometime back, I got a pay as you go phone but never activated- and now I can't activate that without a working phone...I won't do the online account thing to activate that way- they want too much personal info.
I'm charging the phone now- so eventually I may be able to use it. Of course the reason I never activated it originally- was when I tried- I wasn't able to do it properly- and felt so stupid and incompetent that I said screw it. I don't need a cell- except for emergencies- I have no family , and hardly any friends- and no one I need to call in the market or driving...
In fact- I so rarely get calls- i don't know when my phone stopped working- its been a couple of days since I used it. I feel like a completely incompetent loser right now- and I really hate myself for being so stupid- even though I know its not my fault the phone company and my phone are so effed up.

You are not an incompetent loser at all. It is incredibly frustrating when a phone line goes down. Right now you are very stressed and overwhelmed and that makes it difficult to focus on how to get it sored. Hopefully you can get your cell sorted out. Or keep trying to see if you can find a working pay phone. I don't know what it is like in your country, but in my country the phone company actually has shops that you can go into pick up a phone inside the shop and report the fault for free and not have to pay for the phone call.

Is there any way of logging online to reactivate the pay as you go? Most providors allow you to do this.
Sorry to hear its causing ya grief, but don't get the conglomeration of bad events to lead you to questioning your own worth - sh!t happens. Get calm first of all and even if you have to email a colleague to get him/her to ring the phone do it.

Not as long as I'm alive.
I have been too disabled to work, and was working through supported employment. They placed me with a volunteer position to see how I'd do. The day before yesterday, I got sick on the way to work, had no choice but to call in after my start time (because I had gotten ill suddenly). The agency counted that as a no-call-no-show because my shift had already started. It was the second time, because last week I'd had a migraine. The kicker was, I didn't *know* that calling in after my start time was counted as a no-call-no-show. It wasn't until after the employment agency dropped me that they told me I was expected to call in two hours in advance if I couldn't be there. And then, if I had called in two hours in advance, nobody would have been there because the place would have been closed.
So essentially I got the shaft. I'm a physically and mentally disabled old grandma, so I have to wonder who'd ever hire me unless I'm going through supported employment--and now the agency is telling me I'm not even good enough for them, either.
Not trying to hijack your thread. Just trying to tell you it's just as the post above me says, $h!t happens.

I'm learning to not let things like that bother me so much. It is just one of those unfortunate things life throws at us sometimes. Just remember, your problems with the phones/phone companies have nothing to do with you or you value as a person whatsoever. I understand how you could feel the way you do, but it is the depression.

I had a long online chat with customer service for my landline company- explained the problem- and was told use a cell or another phone to call in the repair order- you can't do it online without another phone number. Which didn't help.
I know i'm probably being stupid- letting it upset me as much as it has- but it makes me feel so incredibly stupid, incompetent and worthless- and also brings home that no one cares or would notice if something happened to me or i dropped off the face of the earth. And that I think is what makes me feel worse than the phones situation- which is stressful enough.
I will try to find a pay phone when I go out today- but there are very few of them left. There's one other option and if that doesn't work- my last resort is to ask a friend of sorts who lives almost 20 miles away- if I can come over and call from her house. I hate doing that- because while we used to be close we aren';t anymore and I hate asking anyone for favors or help.
