No, it’s not a fever about the election. It’s an actual fever, which I never run. I can’t even figure out why I’m running a fever. It’s like fever is the only symptom. Maybe it really is the election. This is “it” for me. I’m not paying any further attention to politics. I can’t fix it and I can’t even see a way to make it better.
Meanwhile, our internet service provider decided to raise rates again. Why? All we get is access to a crappy phone we never use and wi-fi with frequent disconnection. We don’t get cable or any other services. So it turned out if we keep the phone (I wanted to get rid of it since all we get on it are spam and scam, but if we keep it (get this) — it will save us $25/month.
So, aside from being in the middle of an election that will probably ruin any hope of democracy in this country, I’m also deeply aggravated with Charter/Spectrum. That’s not unusual, actually. I really hate them. Can you hate an ISP? If you can, I do. It’s completely impersonal. I want them to give me access to other options or actually improve enough to justify their raising prices. Because all we are getting is crap for a lot of money.
We are talking (are you ready?): $90 a month just for wi-fi and a useless VOIP phone that I don’t use and won’t answer.
So I don’t feel well and I’m really pissed off. AND we are in the middle of an election where the wrong side is going to win (probably) and this country will go down the tubes and take a lot of the rest of the world with it.
I think I have earned the right to be pissed off.
