Here’s my current fun with a certain unnamed hosting provider. Feel free to traceroute this site’s domain name if you want to know which one.
me: “please do this specific thing to twenty domains.”
them: “ok, like this?”
me: “no, do it how I asked!”
them: “oh dear, we need someone smarter… I’ll send the request somewhere else”
[ 24 hours goes past ]
them: “sorry, ok, done”
me: “but you didn’t do it, and I had to create a new ticket to ask you to do it again, properly!”
them: “ok, done… I checked two.”
me: “… out of twenty? I’ll do it myself. DO NOT BREAK ANYTHING ELSE”
This may be slightly paraphrased, but it’s taken three days to go backwards on where I was at the start, and realise I should have just done it myself the first time.
