Morals, Math and Media Moguls

With no edits, from a comment thread on the (de)merits of Comcast on AJC.com:

My hubby is an electronic wiz, so thankfully, we managed to get Comcast cable and internet without paying for it for over a year. Eventually, we decided to pay for the service. Since then, my internet has been slower (that’s when it actually works) the television changing is slow, and on some channels I can’t get a decent picture to save my life. It took a week to get a contractor to come out and finally hook it up legally and when he came, the box was broken so we had to actually go to the store ourselves, or have another tech bring out another box which we would have had to pay for despite it not being our fault. The contractor was nice, but between him and Comcast, one hand never knew what the other was doing.

Hubby and I plan to go back to 'borrowing' the service for free, since when we pay for it, the service is crap."

I've always said you have to be careful with those women that use the word hubby. I wonder if Stef and Hubby have kids; and, if they do, can they tell me how many stolen cable connections there are in a neighborhood with 32 houses on 42 streets? They may well, based on the sentence structure in the comment - not a misspelling and there's only one misplaced comma - if Stef is as good at math as she is at grammar and the kids talk to the kids of the other thieving parents in the neighborhood.... How's that for abstract thinking? (If you're new around here, read yesterday's post.)
