If you are not from Australia you have been fortunately spared this little joy. The Australian Government is dedicated to making sure our internet service is at least equal to some undeveloped nations. I mean it would be unrealistic to expect internet speeds comparable to the USA or the UK, after all they are important enough to be recognised from their initials alone. But we refuse as a nation to have the worst internet on Earth.
Unfortunately it is the Australian Government, so the first step is to thoroughly wreck things.
This is why they have brought in the NBN also known as the National Bothersome Nuisance. Someone said it was National Broadband Network but I really don’t believe it is plausible. And it is being rolled out across Australia.
So some people have bad internet, which seems to be getting worse and are not yet eligible for NBN. (Our house is in that category).
Some people are in an NBN area and they have some time to switch before they are switched off.
Some people have switched to the NBN and have no internet access at all. I don’t know if I am allowed to use their names. But I used to get a lot of work done there on a Friday. Now I have another reason not to catch up on emails or actually post bloggy things.
Presumably some people out there have switched and have internet access but I don’t know any. Possibly the people without internet can’t communicate on the internet and thus nobody realises that nobody on the NBN actually has internet access. The poor souls are just out there silently trying to use landline phones. And we will never hear about it as the telecommunication companies involved are far too important to answer telephone calls.
So in other words I am having trouble borrowing internet and I live with 3 monsters who can not live without constant streaming YouTube, even when they sleep, as it is relaxing. Cutting off media makes them too anxious to sleep or function in anyway. The sole exception being sitting on me while demanding cuddles yelling ‘Music?’ over and over and crying when I sing.
No,I did not agree to the Youtube streaming.
Yes, I am aware this is bad parenting!
No they will not listen to me!
Yes I have confronted them, they cried looked confused then watched some YouTube to calm down!
No I am not going to force them to obey me. Mainly because I don’t know how!
Yes I am aware I am a bad parent.
Now if you will excuse me I am going to go and play a Nintendo game until the little circle thingy tells me I can try to upload a picture.
Maybe by next month someone will read this post!
