RE: Verizon's New Repair Method: Plastic Garbage Bags

They throw complaints from Resale CLECs in the trash.  I'm starting to think we should convert the line to VZ Direct, 
then have the customer file PUC complaints, then convert it back when the issue is really resolved.   I suspect that is 
illegal though and we are not going to do that.

Contact your Public Utility Commission, they tend to respond better when there are formal complaints documented.

        The garbage bags have been on that pole for at least 6+ months.
        What will end up happening is what happens every time something like this happens.  We call in trouble tickets 
for months until we can get the issue labeled chronic, then we get a "Class 1 inspection", then they fix it.   One 
issue is that to get it labeled chronic there needs to be three tickets opened within a month.  VZ's temp fix often 
works long enough that we can't get enough tickets in within a month.

        Uh... no. Quick hacks happen from time to time to keep things running.
        Layers upon layers of quick hacks that are never cleaned up (see
        picture) happen through incompetence. If not on the part of the techs then on the part of the managers who 
rushed the techs onward to the next task.
        Always time to do it over, never time to do it right == incompetent.
