Don’t worry, I’ve compiled zombie Michael Jackson, Robin Williams, and Boyz II Men together to create a song to raise awareness. Everyone is pulling for you.
Ha! Please read this and feel bad for me: http://www.mayorgia.blogspot.com/2012/05/boyfriend-is-my-hero.html
Life is tough without internets.
My router crapped out the other day. To make matters worse, my laptop refused to connect to the new router I bought. Technology blows.
I steal my neighbors Internet… So, I would just steal the other neighbors Internet it this happened.
The worst thing is when you think your router is dead, and then you karate chop it in a sudden bout of frustration, popping the casings off and snapping little plastic hooks. And then you realize that your toddler just unplugged the thing. But you’ve got to get a new one anyway, and you’re gonna have to tell your wife that you broke another electronic device because it wouldn’t work right. Another nail in your coffin of the dream to someday own a personal butler robot.
it’s so awful when you’re internet is down…. mine goes in and out cuz of our shitty ass router… I feel your pain.
I’m so sorry. I don’t know how you’re holding it together. This is why we should have emergency internet supplies – a back up router, a smash-glass-in-case-of-emergency router, or maybe pay as you go internet… Wait, isn’t that dial-up?
The only time I actually go to a physical store is 1. food shopping when we’re down to nothing but Saran Wrap and 2. Best Buy if the router dies because I can’t wait for Verizon to send me one! Love the “Oops, now I’m dead!”
[…] are you in the mood for a scary story? This one will make your pulse race. I got a little panicked […]
Same thing happened to me. Except mine died slowly and we had no idea what was wrong. All of a sudden I couldn’t log into anything. It was maddening. Maddening I tell you.
It’s like when your toilet is broken only it’s worse.
I’m hosting a telethon right the fuck now.
Bless your heart! I don’t even know what I would do! Probably go die in a corner somewhere.
You poor dear! I am sitting in the BASEMENT because my computer has decided (after SIX MONTHS of working FINE) that it will only have wireless reception if it’s in the room with the router.
Let’s hope your router has some sort of resurrection moment. Soon.
I feel your pain! My router is very temperamental!
Oh wow…that is my life in a nutshell whenever I am without internet O.O haha! nice blog! I like it so far! Just came across it!
This is why I have an iPhone. It’s my emergency back-up should my router ever decided to.. expire.
LOL! This just happened to me about 2 weeks ago! It honestly happened less than 2 minutes after my site went down, when I was switching to self-hosted… and I didn’t get it back online for hours…. Talk about a panic attack!!! 🙂
My iMac died and I am still mourning the loss. I literally wrapped my arms around it crying, “Nooooooo!!!!!”
Now I have a new shiny iMac and feel guilty about the fact that it is so fast and beautiful. Like I moved on too fast and should have spent more time mourning my old scratched up ancient iMac. Only my new iMac is too cool and so we just shuffled the corpse of the old one into the guest room next to the box of broken Christmas ornaments that I will never ever get around to fixing.
I think I’m going to hell…..
I have satellite internet so the speed and effectiveness of my internet connection is literally dependent on the weather. I need to live near a town.
I’d rather have my dryer gone, my dishwasher gone, have to walk places, then have my internet gone.
NOt even kidding.
I love how you go straight to laundry after Internet failure. Although technically, after several hours without Internet, wouldn’t a long hike be therapeutic?
Best horror story this generation has ever seen. I’m terrified this could happen to me…I’m going to go check on my router right now. Be right back.
