Unburied Cable / Hazard

I had fios installed a few weeks ago with the installer running the cable in the morning and the contractors burying the cable showing up that evening and next morning, however, the contractors only buried the cable in the front yard, leaving a large amount of cable stemming from the ONT box on the house to the back yard unburied.

I've tried numerous times to contact Verizon to communicate the issue but the means to communicate with support is very limited.   I setup an appointment and they said 9 PM for a day that week was the earliest, however, they didn't show.  I setup another one but a time window wasn't given and for some reason they seem to want me to be at home for them to bury cable that should have been buried originally.   The support incident is now dated 12/31/2058.   I've tried to get them on the phone but the wait is extremely long for support.    

Is there a means to effectively communicate with Verizon support for these type of field issues?
