When I lost my job, I ended up having to move back in with my parents. That was interesting for a number of reasons, because I had not lived with them for nearly six years. I just needed time to regroup, and it was going to save me money by living with them until I did. Everything was cool on their end with the exception of one thing, which was easy enough to remedy. Their Internet connection was the same one that they had when I was a kid, so I looked up plans on DSL so I could get them into the modern ages.
There is nothing wrong with dial up if you rarely use a computer. My folks aren’t like that though. They both play games on there, enjoy social media, and take care of their banking and other finances online. How they can even do all of that with the connection they had is beyond me. I would say they didn’t know any better or are the types who don’t like change, but that is not the case either. It did not take me long to determine which company had the best deals for them out of all the ones that offer Internet service in their area.
When they saw how much quicker their connection is with their new service, they told me they wished they had known that it would have made that much of a difference. They really enjoyed their time online before, but now they are on there even more. Mom is even thinking about canceling their cable subscription because they both watch their TV programming on their laptops now. It really is funny watching them, and I hope that I am just as awesome as they are when I get to be their age.
