Disconnected (Or: Lack of internet)

Yesterday night I called to disconnect the internet, effective Friday morning. Thankfully I have had it for three and a half years, so I don’t have to worry about an early termination fee! Originally I thought I would have to cancel it last week, as Verizon agents said typically they want their router back. Most people request that a shipping label be sent to their house, but that takes time to arrive in the mail. And the label cannot be generated until the account is terminated… Coupled with a less than quick mail service (things tend to take a while to get into my hands) I thought I would have to cancel things much earlier.

But in the end I made some calls and figured out exactly what Verizon stores the router could be sent back to. One of my coworkers graciously volunteered to return the router to the store in person for me. One less thing to worry about! A few more to go.

It is going to be weird not to have any internet. As a society, we have definitely gotten used to internet at our fingertips at any given moment, although I only have a prepay phone (not a smartphone) and an iTouch, so I am not as embedded as some people are outside of the home. While I will have internet at work, after Friday afternoon there will be no more of that. Thankfully we are staying in the New Yorker hotel near Madison Square garden this weekend and they have a free check-in service for flights, so we are covered there!
