Saya: WTF, why isn't my internet connection working? Mom, have you paid the bills? I thought our current income was passable!
Maternal Unit: The bills are paid, it's something with the ISP.
Saya: *calls the ISP's customer service*
Automated customer service: There is no internet connection registered to this ID.
Saya: Bitch, what?
Saya: *travels to ISP's local boutique* Give me back my internet, khtx.
Clerk: Nope, the service has been cancelled by the owner.
Saya: No, it hasn't.
Clerk: Yes, it has.
Saya: *grabs phone, dials* Mom, the clerk says you cancelled my Internet! Tell him that he's wrong!
Maternal Unit: Oh yeaaaah, I kinda did cancel it.
Maternal Unit: Can't you just press a button and turn it back on?
Saya: But... you... what... *sputter*
Clerk: No, sorry, the connection has gone off to meet its maker. You'll have to drag yourself over here and open a new connection.
Maternal Unit: But I have a bad leeeeg, and I have to go over to the hospital to get it operateeeed, and I won't be able to walk for weeeeeks...
Saya: *INCOHERENT SHRIEKING*
Clerk: Well, do you know when you will be able to get over here?
Saya: Open it in my name.
Clerk: Or we can open it in your daughters name.
Mobile broadband, the house's second internet connection, which is exclusively in Maternal Unit's use: *has not been cancelled*
Maternal Unit: Oh, hey, you're back! How did it go?
Saya: Choke on your tongue.
That line: *is not an exaggeration*
I am currently using the USB modem that I got as a freebie when I opened the connection. The DSL connection proper won't be opened until the 28th. In Sonera terms, that means somewhere mid-May.
