For 3 weeks now in Mexico I have been using someone else’s wireless Internet that miraculously was accessible in my apartment. I mean it was a real miracle – my computer identified over 10 wireless networks in range, all of them secured, but one..with the strongest connection signal! So I used it mercielessly, thinking good thoughts, of course, about the owner of the network. And I really did not mean to use that network for so long. The matter was that the Internet company that I contracted to hook me up to the Net could not install my cable for 3 weeks. They told me a Saturday ago they’d come – never showed up. Then I was waiting for them on another Saturday – never showed up again. Then it was the following Monday – same story. Then a Wednesday – and yes, the same story. So, I finally thought of talking to a supervisor. And it worked! After haggling with me for about one hour over the color of my building (can’t tell you why that matters given that I provided to them my exact address), he sent two nice men my way who installed both the Internet and the TV cable in minutes. And it is so cool, I can’t tell you how cool. The Internet is super fast and the TV cable is rich. Any time I turn the TV on now it shows something cool. E.g., last night I watched “Billy Elliot” and tonight I watched parts of “The pair of idiots” – 🙂 this is how Mexicans translated “Dumb and Dumber”!
