Frustrations breed frustrations

Today a cable TV tech was scheduled to come to my home between 1 and 3 p.m.      While I was away, the tech or his supervisor called.  He left a message on my machine.   He said that there had been a system wide break down in our area.  It was now fixed so he wasn’t coming.    Whatever they did didn’t fix my problem.  I spent half an hour in a phone conversation with a cable call- center agent trying to explain  that the tech still needed to come.  By this time, my appointment had been taken by another customer.   They moved me to the next day.  My frustration began to spill over into other tasks facing me.  One relatively small frustration was beginning to breed until I remembered the wisdom of the serenity prayer:  “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,  Courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”    Amen and Amen!!
