Another Library Monday

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.)
