Me: "I'd like to upgrade my plan."

Comcast be like "GET 10 GB+ DOWNLOAD SPEEDS!!!!" with a footnote like "If you wanna send bytes UP, we've got like... a mouse who wears a courier jacket that we can send around to pick up your bytes occasionally. Try not to send too many though, she gets tired."

I never wanna push a second follow, but also... browsing masto is what I do when my brain is completely burnt out from work, so I definitely don't know who the heck I might have tried to follow in the past
