Stepdad just unplugged the internet cable. Apparently he's convinced himself that it's tied to his cable service, which he's trying to disconnect. He also thinks that I could simply have gotten free wifi from his service(short answer: no I can't). He also blames me for his bill, because I somehow sneaked in my own service into the house without his permission(this is completely false on both points).

I honestly can't understand how someone can warp their perception to fit their arguments like that. Also, his request to add his TV service to my account is now starting to sound like threats.

Absolutely do not add it.  You know how poor of an idea it would be?  Imagine how hard it will be to un-tangle that . . . or imagine giving him a minibar and a hotel room; except the minibar is actually payperview.

Give him money instead, if you must, or teach him how to find stuff on youtube.  Or of you use hulu/flix, set him up to use that.

Do note, the internet-enabled device in this house that I do not own is my mom's smartphone. Also, I sure as hell am not going to be paying his TV bill, not in the least because I don't watch it. I also question his claim that he spends over $100 a month on his service, since according to Optimum's pricing packages, that would require their Preferred package, and he claims he just wants Basic. All he does all day is sit on the couch watching old(like, 1950s-1960s stuff) shows, recording them to VCR tapes and probably never watching them again.

Akura, why the actual fuck are you still living with those people, regardless of your familial ties?

Lack of other practical options for housing I imagine. You can get stuck in a really bad situation if you don't have anywhere else to go.

This. The cheapest rent I've seen posted is around $1300 and up, way outside my budget even it if it did include utilities. Sure, there might be cheaper places, but I can't find them posted, probably don't include utilities, and they're probably not safe places to live.

I seriously do not understand how other people make similar to what I do and can afford to live they way they do.

Rent control. It doesn't cost them as much because they bought into it while it was still cheap.

Welp, they did push me into changing the service. Amazing how their stories change, by the way. Like, mid-sentence even.

On the plus side, I did get pretty decent 2-year deal out of it, including faster internet, 1-year DVR, about 4x as many channels, a couple of free movie channels, below-package price, and reduced installation fee, and it's all in *my* name.


Unrelated(mostly), but the speaker of my phone gets really hot after while on a call.

It can only be called a decent deal when they change out the malfunctioning Momsboyfriend unit.
