The Best Part of the Internet

Phone rings. “Hello! This is Todd from Xfinity. I see your introductory 12-month contract on your internet is nearly up.”

His story checks out, we moved into our place a year ago. “Yeah, I’ve been meaning to look into that.”

“I just have one question for you: What’s your favorite thing on the internet?”

Wow, tough question. A loaded one to be sure. Is Todd looking at my internet browsing history right now? I think for a few moments and say, “Well, if I had to pick one thing, I guess I’d say the free exchange of ideas. I mean, look at everything that’s happened, socially justice-wise in the last decade from marriage equality to the collapse of dictatorships. I don’t think any of that could have happened without the rise of the internet.”

“Okay,” Todd said. “Based on your response (pause) I suggest you stick with the 75mb with BOOST internet plan!”

“Ah, now I see where you were going with that question Todd.”
