"What a way to start the day! The internet is down again!" she complained to her cat.
After searching for the phone number for the internet provider customer service, she growled and punched the required buttons.
"Press 1 for *****, press 2 for *****, press 3 for *****"
"Where is the human?" she scowled into the receiver.
"Press 4 for *****, press 5 for *****" the machine continued.
Finally, a human voice......"May I help you?"
"I can't get on the internet!"
"What is your name? Can we contact you at this number? One moment please."
"I lost my human!" she said as she tightened her grip on the receiver.
"We have no problem on our end. It must be your computer." the voice said.
"You need to talk me through this. I'm a dinosaur." she warned the voice.
After ten minutes of clicking on a dozen icons, they found the problem.
"I've been in quarantine for five months! I haven't left the house. How the heck did this computer slip into airplane mode?" Barb said.
The human voice laughed.
