It’s Amazing How Quick We Resort To Cannibalism When The Internet is Out

It really is quite amazing just how quick we resort to cannibalism when our Internet connection goes down. Okay, maybe I didn’t resort to cannibalism. It probably wouldn’t have helped at all if I had. However, if I thought it would have, I would seriously have considered it.

As my regular readers know, I am moving. With that comes the lovely transfer of services. Comcast, of course, has not been particularly helpful.

First, they shut off my Internet several days before they were supposed to. They claimed this is what their records showed that I had ordered, but manages to turn things back on. Then, today, when they were supposed to transfer service, they did not. My new place is not in fact set up for cable service properly.

Again, I blame Comcast. They new my building had been redone and they probably needed to go in to set things up. My new next door neighbor already dealt with this and they came in at that time to wire the whole building. However, for whatever reason, they did not actually connect the wires they put in my unit and did not think they needed to do so when connecting my service today. Whatever it was they needed to do, they didn’t do it. In fact, they now can’t come out until Tuesday to do whatever it was they should have already done. If I was going to resort to cannibalism, perhaps I should consider someone on their end.

Frankly, I think this is an attempt to censor my blog posts. Surely this is their big concern, as opposed to nightmarishly bureaucratic practices and poor customer service. If they cut my Internet connection, then I cannot post. Obvious censorship, or perhaps they just aren’t fans. Regardless, I think Qdoba is in league with them, as I hoped they would have free WiFi there to get around the problem, but they did not. I finally resorted to the lobby at my old building, clearly the last bastion of resistance in the anti-Comcast censorship of Dave agenda.

Well, I prevent them from thwarting me today, but at what cost? I didn’t even eat one of them. Frankly, I’ve ended up posting a rambling, unfocused blog at the end of a very long day of moving. If my Internet doesn’t get fixed soon, more bad posts will surely follow. Perhaps even some cannibalism. I’ll just play it by ear.

About David S. Atkinson

However, he is concerned about the Kierkegaard quote "Once you label me you negate me." He worries that if he attempts to define himself he will, in fact, nullify his existence...

    Heh heh heh , what was I to do fir 17 years I spent in the US,without a single cricket highlight on any cable channel. I moved back to India. Long live cricket, down with baseball.

    • I’m not a big sports person myself, but anything you get used to like that becomes an extreme aggravation when you can’t access it. At least if you were in the US now and did have Internet you could access cricket highlights online.

    It’s too easy to make sense of highlights, perhaps too easy. I thinks that’s true of all sports let alone cricket. Though you are less likely to watch the game after seeing the highlights, you could argue how it is not the same with movies. Booyah! Oscar punt to the skull hahaha 🙂
