digital divide, part 2

now to getting internet access. at least now going to the coffee place
with the free wifi won't be an exercise in torture. but we still don't
have it at home (hence the poor spelling, punctuation and formatting
of the mobile phone posts). being rural leaves us only 2 broadband
choices, and i owe comcast money for their craptastic service while
other people owe the phone company. it's still an uphill battle, but
it's less steep now.
thank you godless whores and evilmart clerk who risked her job because
'i know what it's like to be just this short of being able to get what
you need'. the damn internet is my lifeline to people and what tiny
bits of income i get. not having proper access to it for this last
year has really kicked my ass.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.
