The bank is getting worse every day

My husband and I have been with the same bank for, well....years. For us, it is convenient, it does have several stand alone, and in store ATM's, and, since all I have to do is put in my card, my number and slide in my paycheck (or whatever) for deposit, I like it.
However...not all is perfection in banking land.
We've been trying to get a consolidation loan from these people.
Now, I'm not qualified to get anything, since I'm in a debt managemant program. While I knew my credit score would go down...I did NOT expect it to go from over 700 to 500 in a matter of a few months. Of course, since you don't pay your credit cards, because you are making payments to an account to get them paid off, well....yeah. To the credit card companies, you're just not paying them. So...scores plummet. I'm not going to blame the debt management people. Much.
So, my husband does have good credit. We do have a loan with the bank. One of several we've had over the past years, and paid off in a timely, usually before they are due manner. He calls the loan person, gives his info, and waits.
and waits
and waits.
Four days later, he calls back. Talks to the guy, gives his info again, and waits.
and waits
and waits.

Finally, he calls again. Talks to the guy again. (same guy who made us wait over a week to let us know I cannot use my VA because of my credit score, which he knew an hour after he saw us) Gives him the info AGAIN.
Now, we are waiting...again. If this guy does not call on monday, with good news, yeah...hubby will start being the 'call on the hour every hour guy' Because this is just getting stupid.
Bullshit level

Stupid shit.

So, I live in a somewhat duplex. Yesterday, my neighbor stops over from when I get home from work and informs me of this. She got Century Link for internet access. They hooked up her internet to MY CONNECTION. I have a different company for my internet so this is gonna be fun. So Tuesday, the idiots have to come back and rehook it up. Luckily I have that day off but god are they going to haaaaate me.

Bonus how I envision things going:

Edit: Sorry was tired when I did this post so I'll expand.

The tenants that were here before me spliced the hell out of the cable box to get free cable to the point when I got cable and asked for it to be connected, the cable company was going wtf at the box and almost disconnected my former neighbor for an illegal connection because they tapped into his cable line as well. To fix this, they had to redo the box and label for future maintenance. Century Link went in, saw the tenant two line(that's me), completely ignored the line that said tenant one, spliced it and went on their merry way. The reason that I posted the gif is that is how I envision things to go. Worse case scenario is a cascade that I will eventually have to call my own cable company to get my cable working if they knock my cable out fixing this.
