Internet access keeps going in & out at my new place. My new roommate keeps acting like this is no big deal.
Roommate: “It works for me. The wireless works when I use it”
This is like saying, “The television works when I use it.”
In fact, it’s worse. Coming home to a non-functioning Internet is like coming home to a house without electricity, without running water. It’s a minute-by-minute problem, and believe you me, I will make it your problem so you’d better fix it sooner rather than later or you’ll be finding a new roommate, quickstyle.
Truth be told, if I had to choose between electricity, running water, or a functioning Internet connection, I’d have to think real hard for about 20 minutes.
Big conference call yesterday morning. Thought I’d telecommute and SURPRISE! Guess who had to hold it from a coffeeshop. Unprofesh, people. And no, it’s not my computer and yes, I have the right password.
This is an URGENT PROBLEM and non-negotiable. Fix it.
