For some reason, people don’t seem to realize that wifi is now a basic home utility. That people need. And have to pay for.
People like my husband.
Instead of having our own wireless router, or a LAN, or any type of device that would allow me to easily access the Web, we just have a login that lets us steal from active hotspots.
While this has been a cheap way to have Internet–and we don’t have a TV, so no cable, so no bundles wherein wifi is actually cheap (did you know wifi is $59.99/month if you have no other services?! Ripoff!!)–it is only effective if it works.
And right now it’s not working.
I get irrationally angry when the wifi is slow or broken. Instead of the post about daylight savings time I wanted to write, I’m unleashing this rant on the powers that be who prevent me from having the lightning-fast internet of my dreams.
So, I’ll bid you adieu, and go read a paperback book…!
