U-Verse came to my door last night and gave me the dog and pony show about how they’re laying fiber optic cable and my speeds will be so fast I’ll shit bricks and fuck Buckeye because their speeds are slow as shit and Game of Thrones should never be pixelated all to hell. They were offering me a $100 gift card to cover installation and cheaper HBO and a rate that was a dazzling $8 cheaper than my current bill. But you know what? I didn’t do it.
I like to hate on Buckeye a lot, but at the end of the day, they’re a local company creating local jobs. I like knowing that should the need arise to shout at someone in person, I can do that at their Southwyck office.
But mostly local jobs. Let’s go with that.
