The Best Things in Life Are Free
That includes internet access.
I just spent $250 on a refurbished Dell Latitude D600 laptop and when the guy was setting it up in my kitchen, he started looking for unsecured wireless networks and found one that gives me four to five bars and is greasy fast. I dunno who in my neighborhood is providing me with this, but I'm mouthing a silent "Thank you" to them.
I say this because just a couple of days ago, I tried ordering the FIOS triple play package, which is ordinarily $99.99 a month. But then the lady tells me that there's no FIOS satellite service so it'll have to be internet and phone only. OK, how much? She says that, all told, it would still cost me $90 a month including taxes, fees, etc.
"So the satellite TV would be only ten extra a month? That's kind of pricey for just internet and phone, isn't it?"
"But it's FIOS!", she gushed.
Yeah, saving a half a second on every mouse click is certainly worth almost a hundred bucks a month. Obviously, I'll be canceling that work order ASAP. I can still use my cell phone.
Bottom line: Pottersville's back, fulltime, nastier then ever. God have mercy on the GOP 'cuz I damned sure won't.
