    You sleep all night on the couch because you're too tired to get up
    and go to bed.

    You watch 4 hours of Parliament Question time because the remote
    control is on the television set.

    You lay awake all day wishing you could sleep because you're so
    tired, and you lay awake all night wishing you could get up.

    You watch the telephone as it rings, and you know you could

    You are having a conversation with someone and half way through

    "You are having a conversation with someone and half way through

    Just happened to me. The Comcast guy called. And he was offering me a new deal since my current price expires in a week. I had to keep asking him to go over it again and even when he was done, I was confused. Basically, they are still screwing me to the wall. I can pay virtually the same thing, but they want to take away the DVR box for that. If I keep the box, I'll be paying about twenty or so dollars more a month. As it is, I can't afford this. But I said okay to the new deal for now just so they don't raise my bill an insane amount. I'll end up changing it somehow to lower. But seriously, I didn't understand half of what he was saying. My brain just wouldn't process.
