Last month I got my first laptop computer. My desktop one is fine, but me and hubby have long discussed having a laptop for when we travel.
Of course we want to use it at home as well so it doesn't sit around wishing we would just GO already. Yeah, I sometimes attribute human thoughts to inanimate objects. Yeah, I'm taking my meds.
Even though we live about 30-40 minutes from Detroit, we get no wireless signal at home. We thought it would be cheaper to get mobile broadband service than to go stay at a motel with free WiFi every night.
We had Sprint for a free month's trial, but it dropped out a few times and it doesn't have the same national coverage as Verizon does. We switched.
The basic mobile broadband service (at both Sprint and Verizon) allows you to use 5G a month. That's 1000 MB x 5. Seems like a lot, doesn't it?
As it turns out, it isn't.
My current billing cycle ends May 23rd. I've already used half a GB. Hmm. If I don't use my desktop more and let the laptop languish around, I'll go over the limit. Then I'll have to pay 25 cents per MB.
For that money I may as well phone a psychic. Or a sex hotline. I'd probably pick the psychic who would maybe guess I've been attributing human thoughts to inanimate objects.
