They are going to institute the cap (don’t worry).  I know I’ll end up doing it.  My social security number is necessary to pay a bill?


The morning started out badly.  A couple of weeks ago I discovered what Mom had been muttering about before she left for Montana.  She’d decided she had to clean the air filter in her little window air conditioner, and she managed to cram it back down in so that the holder was midway down the actual filtering mechanism; in order to remove the filter and get things back in somewhat-working order it was necessary to rip part of the filter.  That is not by the way the end of the world.  She was undoubtedly worried about noxious gasses and the like.  R-22 isn’t pleasant and will displace air but isn’t per se poisonous.


I decided to take the filter out because Rose had decided to leave the air conditioner on, full strength, 24 hours a day.  It tried to turn into a freezer.  So I spent a half an hour or so fixing things (more or less; the holder–a brace, apparently, for something that assuredly didn’t need it–was broken in the process, so there was a wire to get out of the way, to which the holder had been attached).


Today, Rose decides to clean the filter.  And freaks out over the wire.  She was evidently pretty sure it wouldn’t work any more.  She also managed to make chewable coffee and carefully leave it for me (she gets angry if I go to bed too early, late or probably if it’s too, too, well, just too, you know? I don’t).


Then you can’t do the Charter website anymore.  They’ve improved it to unusability.  Rose of course has to have her own password.  It costs two bucks to pay over the phone, which I’ll evidently do.  So I’ll pay two months, I guess.  Jesus.  I am not in a good mood.



Yup.  As foreseen, nearly half an hour to pay a bill.  Just picture me as a happy, smiling old man (I am after all 54 years old).  Well, I am bald.
