There's No Such Thing As Free Cable


Because on the eve of the New Hampshire primary and the same day that the Daily Show came back on the air, they decided to do an "audit" of all of the cable and internet use in my apartment building, taking away BOTH the internet (paid for) and cable t.v. (paid for not as much).

I feel like the bastard son of Claire Huxtable.

We lost our "free" cable to an audit last year. Three days later it was back on. I think the maintenence people rig something in the basement so they can get free cable in their breakroom.

I'm sorry, but I don't quite get your "Cosby Show" reference. Could you please elaborate?

It's from Jim Carrey's poignant and heartfelt monologue at the end of The Cable Guy. If you haven't seen the movie, I HIGHLY recommend it.

i feel your pain. i had quite the comcast war this past summer.. apparently it made sense to have 10 apartments service split from ONE line and then shrug thier shoulders when one tenent added the "Triple Play" and my internet went away. I'm still internet free at the moment, mostly in protest.
