Dilbert (8/1/10)

I love my mom. That said, sometimes she needs help with the simplest of tasks. Take the Internet, for example. My mom has lived in her house for months, but she’s still making due without service. It’s not that she hasn’t signed up for service or that she hasn’t been paying her bills, but rather that her provider has refused to check her faulty phone jacks. The easy solution would to be to call and complain and, if that doesn’t work, cancel the service and sign up with a new provider. But that hasn’t happened. Instead, the problem has persisted for months and shows no sign of abetting. The curious thing is that the rest of my mom’s house looks great. She’s bought and assembled furniture, found contractors for repairs, and unpacked most of her things. Maybe the Internet just isn’t that important to her.
