Apparently the phone line that exists in our apartment is owned by the guy who owned the apartment before the current owner. How do I know this? We went to the Telmex office to improve the speed of our DSL by upping the service and it seems that we can't do that without a piece of paper from the owner previous to the current owner stating that we can change his service.
So I emailed the owner and she said to tell them that he never gave her that paper and that she doesn't know how to contact him. This is the second time we've been over to Telmex to talk to them about it. They said, no problem, just get 6 months of receipts that say that the current owner has been paying the bill and we can change it to her name.
Well, the current owner was living in Belgium for the last year and is now in Khazakstan, so it's not like she has been here paying it. It was being paid by the last renters.
We think we'll try Cablemas next. This is going so easily! ;) Actually, right now we have cable lines, but no cable. We're going to work on getting the piece of paper that says we live here and then we're going to get cable set up as a back up in case the DSL goes down. (We're neurotic like that, and we need it to work for work).
On a happy note, I found a Spanish tutor. I met with her for an hour tonight and just talked about all sorts of stuff. We're going to meet twice a week and talk for an hour each time.
