This Week in Milford

Another Library Monday

Filed under: glasses on forehead, Pointy Fingers, What the hell is going on here? — nedryerson @ 5:52 am

The internet outage at the Britos’ is the source of much drama. Mrs. Brito did call about it, so keep your pants on, Abel. It’s going to be a couple days until The Internet Repairman can come out and take a look at the router.

Abel Brito has work to do now, he laments to Mrs. Brito. It’s important internet work and he’s been staring at his screen for hours wondering why it doesn’t work, but he didn’t try to fix it or even seek help from tech support. That’s Mrs. Brito’s domain. Abel sits and scowls.

Mrs. Brito does offer a useful suggestion. Abel should go to the library and use the internet there. Lots of people do this. Lots of people with very important internet work to do go and sit in the library and use publicly funded computers and publicly funded internet to do their important internet work. (The library also strongly suggests you keep your pants on.)

It’s hard to say for sure, but it looks like Abel Brito is using a desktop PC. If he had a laptop, he could go to the Coffee Cantina and use their WiFi. (They are a little looser with their pants policy, or so I’ve heard.)


  1. When it comes to keeping the household connected, Mrs. Brito is useless af. Service providers don’t send repairmen out for something like a router. They try and fix it remotely and if that don’t work, they ship you a new router. Even a chimpanzee could connect it without much difficulty. Once again, Rubin is no farther along than the 1990’s

  2. Dumb and boring. That’s how we like our Milford. Where could this lead? Abel bumps into Gil at library. Wonderful inanity ensues.

    2. Lemme guess — Verizon internet service? Because believe me, I feel their pain.

    3. Insert generic “Abel looks like Tom Selleck” joke here ______

  4. And here I though we would have to wait for football season for Larry Csonka to show up…

  5. Looks like a website is being displayed to me in P3. Did he not noticed the connection must have been restored. So Mr. Brito will soon be on the Library Board. This should cause some major conflict……for some reason.

    Yay for the song title for your title. I’m keeping mine going this week, I hope.

  6. @hitorque….I wonder if she has cauliflower ear to go with that bashed in nose

  7. @franku2016 — remember that nose when De Niro was playing the fat old La Motta in Raging Bull?

  8. Mrs. Puppy set us up with a $50 router years ago, and it’s fine. Except when when she goes for a pre-dawn run, turns it off to reboot, and doesn’t reset it before his lordship wakes.

  9. Lord Voldemort called, Mrs. Brito, he’d like his nose back.

    And if you ever wondered whatever happened to mailman Cliff Clavin after Cheers ended, it looks like he got some cheap black shoe polish, coated his hair and mustache, and is pretending to be a lady’s true corazon in Milford.

  10. Ay-yi-yi-yi! If this couple hires their very own bandit, would he be the Britos’ Bandito?

  11. I added a new category– glasses on forehead. Mrs. Brito has em there even though she’s inside. Everyone has their glasses on their forehead you notice? I should scour the archives for more.

  12. Elephant? What elephant? All I see is Jimmy Durante’s schnozzola. Unless you’re talking about Mr. Brito who has the personality of Dumbo’s butt.

    Robmize, that is INTERESTING. And funny. I’m curious too. Please keep us posted on that one.
