R.I.P Me: The Emotional Stages Of Living Without The Internet
3 December 2015, 17:48
Ran out of data? Moved address? We feel your pain.
It happens to all of us.
You've run out of data or moved house and it takes WEEKS to install a new connection. Perhaps Apple did a triple poop on you (iPhone, iPad and MacBook crashing at the same time...it's happened!) Either way, it's literally the worst.
Let's go through the emotional stages, shall we?
At first, you maintain a dignified calm on the surface.
But the cracks start to appear.
Bit by bit.
Then you break. BIG TIME.
Isolated and alone, you resort to desperate tactics to get a connection.
The misplaced hope when you think you can use your neighbours WiFi.
Then you check and realise it's password protected (like everyone else's, obviously).
You really hit rock bottom. It's going to be 3 weeks till you get the internet again and there's sh*t all you can do about it.
The situation is always made worse by people like Derek.
You just have to accept it. A solemn goodbye to the good times.
Until the next time.
