Burying a cable

We had our FIOS fiber cable run from the box to our house 3 weeks ago. At the time, we were told that the cable would be buried in two weeks. That didn't happen. I called on Wednesday of this week (Oct 21st) and was told that the cable would be buried today (Oct 23rd), but that I had to be home in order for the work to be done. Unfortunately, I was not given a ticket number for this scheduled work.

I have taken the day off, but nobody from Verizon has showed up to bury my cable. When I called about it, I was told that the earliest I could have the cable buried is Nov 5th.

I have burned a vacation day unnecesarily becuase of this, and I am extremely unhappy, and I believe that Verizon owes me some sort of compensation from this horrible exampe of customer service.
