on more than one occasion, when managing customer installs or
we've had Ameritech tell us that they can see the CPE and try and
their work done.

of course, we always include an appropriately timed step in our
where the CPE is disconnected and turned off, so we usually put an end
that right then and there.

it's kind of depressing that you have to presume that a critical vendor
is going to lie to you. on the other hand, it _is_ the  phone company.
