Damn Stupid Losers : The DSL guys
So, I'm getting DSL (high speed Internet for you newbies). Finally it won't take 3 hours to a download a webpage (will you MORONS stop using so much flash for crying out loud??)! The DSL guy (I suppose) came to my house today. I saw the phone company truck pull into my driveway and thought "Woohoo!! Finally I can download Dreamweaver!" (I've only been downloading it for a week now! Earthlink sucks). So I answer the door, ask if he needs to see my computer, etc. and the guy tells me he just has to test my phone line to make sure the signal is strong and working and my modem will be shipped as soon as he says it's ok. I can hook it up when I get it. Huh? Why can't the dork just bring the freakin' modem with him? He wouldn't even have to set it up, just hand it to me. I just WANT IT. It would save on shipping and I could be cruising along by now. Bureaucracy stinks. So for now, I'll just press "post" on this rant and wait for an hour for the stupid confirmation page to load while I'm (probably) already paying for a DSL connection. Ah, the wonders of Internet access.
