That all sounds familiar.

I used to work with a guy who kept accidentally cutting a temporary 
cable from a pedestal in his yard running to his neighbor's house every 
couple of weeks for a year and a half.  Both he and the neighbor were 
mad at the cable company and were trying to make the cable company fix 

The cable company would come fix / re-run the supposedly temporary cable 
within 36 hours of it being cut.

This went on from late spring one year until mid summer the next year.

FINALLY the cable company came out and buried (yet another) new cable.

I think that it's really sad that it took that long for the cable 
company to do what they said they would do in less than two weeks from 
the original repair.
