May the FIOS Be With You


March 6, 2008 by Marj Hatzell

Yeah, I’m a geek like that. I dig Star Wars, Star Trek (the old series) and can quote movies like nobody’s business. You don’t need to see his identification. These aren’t the droids you’re looking for. He can go about his business. Move along. Move along.

Want further proof? When we bought our car, one of the numbers on the contract sheet was 1337. I started laughing and said, “Look! Leet numbers! HOW COOL IS THAT?” And the sales guys and Darling were all, “Huh?” And I was all, “1337! You know, leet speak? 1337 stands for…it means…it’s…” And I trailed off because they were all looking at me like I had sprouted a flower from my ear or something.

We’ve decided to join the dark side. The force has sucked us in, and thanks (in part) to the cute college-aged salesperson that persistently knocked on our door (and I finally told him to come back on a Saturday when the husband was there), we are getting the connection from the evil empire. Yup. We’re getting this. The whole package. And it will be saving us nearly $100 a month. Now, we could save more if we didn’t have it. But since Mayberry has finally come out of the dark ages and we’re getting it anyways, why not join in? Several of my neighbors switched. We’re just lemmings, jumping off of the cliff with everyone else.

But wait, there’s more!

We also get an HDTV. It’s only 19 inches, but we ain’t paying for it. Oh yeah, also, there’s a Tarzhay gift card involved, if you can believe that nonsense. Doods, I’m getting a Deal.

Can life get any better? We shall see. I’ll see you on the dark side, if it works by the end of the day.

    Yeah!!! Sounds like a great deal…I must say I know much more on these subjects than I should. lol!

    I have no idea what 1337 or leet speak is. But I did get really excited when I linked to Verizon and I let myself, for one stupid second, thin that when I typed my phone number in they were going to tell me that I too could walk to the dark side with you. They’ll let me know, apparently, when it becomes available in my area. I think that’s going to be when I learn how to make fiber optic cables in my barn.

  3. Okay, now I have to look up 1337.

    It’s not, like, Luke Skywalker’s locker number at Jedi Academy, is it?

    Those package deals are awesome. We had one the entire time we lived up there (different company). We don’t watch most of the channels, but I make a lot of long distance phone calls (which were part of the package deal) and we ended up saving a ton every month.
