You might think you have little in common with the stars of Hollywood, but celebrities share many of your frustrations.

Star Trek and X-Men star Patrick Stewart recently moved to Park Slope, Brooklyn, but when he tried to get cable at his home, he was not immediately able to make it so.

Stewart tweeted about his mis-adventures trying to get cable TV at his $2 million home.

He told followers that all he wanted to do was get Time Warner Cable to set up a new account, but after 36 hours of trying, the British star had "lost the will to live."

A representative of the cable company volunteered assistance, but Stewart remains frustrated.

Former co-star Levar Burton tweeted back, simply, "been there," as so many of us have.
