Taking My Tubes Away

Heads up: don't be surprised if I disappear within the next week or so. It's very likely my cable (and therefore, internet) will be turned off fairly soon. I've been trying to catch up on bills since I lost my job over a month ago. I've gotten a couple of decent paychecks under my belt since starting the new job, but I'm still way behind. And lately I've had to focus on certain priorities. Namely: rent, electric, and food. This leaves Comcast at a close fourth, and they're not too happy about that. And with other major expenses coming up, out of state trips, and whatnot...well, it looks like I won't be able to pay this off as quickly as they'd like.

If this is indeed the case, then I likely won't be getting internet again until after I move next month. And likely not for a little while after that.

So if I suddenly stop responding to emails or Facebook/Myspace messages, you know why.

Hello, Sharkbear!

I was sorry to read about your situation. In today's economy, I think everyone can understand times of financial hardship. I can't guarentee anything, but some regions will accept promises to pay (and you did mention having a steady income again). If you would like my assistance in reaching out to your market on your behalf, I'd be more than happy to assist. Please email me at, and I'll see what I can do.

Kind Regards,
