They recently sent us a broadband pack, congratulating us on making the move from dial-up. (If I had my way, we would’ve installed it that afternoon, which would have solved this whole thing, but that’s neither here nor there.) We said thanks, I said yay let’s do it, and The Powers That Be said we’ll think about it. As they do. Say, I mean, not think.
Anyway, when I went to log on to our DIAL-UP, I couldn’t. Since the (stupid evil) people at Telstra had gifted us with broadband, they’d decided that we no longer needed our dial-up. And I’m sure you can all see what they couldn’t:
NO broadband + NO dial-up = NO FRICKIN INTERNET.
We gave them a call to
The conversation concluded with the following recording: Thank you for calling Telstra BigPond: Australia’s leading internet service provider (Oh yeah? I really didn’t notice you providing any service OR internet) Please call back from 8am or visit our website at www.bigpond.com.
OH SURE. I’LL JUST JUMP RIGHT ON MY INTERNET AND CHECK OUT YOUR (STUPID EVIL) WEBSITE. THANKS FOR (literally) NOTHING, LOSERS.
