No, it's Not, "We're With the Liver Balls." That Would Be Dumb; Funny, but still Dumb

A person's behavior and personality are derivations of what expectations have been placed on them. Which is to say: everyone reflects what is expected of them. Be it a conformance to those expectations or a direct refutation of them, people's actions are tied to expectation.

Maybe that doesn't apply to hermits, but for the most part, I've found that philosophy to hold true. I just wish I wasn't so lame and could remember who it was who formulated it.

Shameful confession of the day: I love having this dialouge with people:
Wŏ: "No, I'm not going to reactivate your internet service because you owe us $[Amount]."
Tā: "Sir, I am going to send you a check."
Wŏ: "That's fine, and we appreciate that, but we'll reactivate it as soon as we get the check."
Yeah, I'm a dick, and I hate that I feel good saying, "screw you because I can't trust you."

Is it a good ISP or a crappy one?

Interestingly, of all the bills I have ever paid, only the internet bill has ALWAYS BEEN ON TIME.

It's an okay ISP. I don't agree with all of our policies, but it's decent for the most part.

Good thing you pay on time, otherwise your girl friend couldn't steal it from you.
