So, we were missing random channels from our cable package. At the same time, our hippie neighbors decided to get basic, basic cable. Whatever fix the Comcast dude had to do resulted in our channels all coming back and also appearing on the neighbors’ tv as well.
The neighbors, being good-do-bees, explained to the Comcast dude that they were now getting channels they weren’t paying for.
He went out again, looked at the cables, jiggled some things, looked again, looked at our set-up, looked at the neighbors’ set up, and declared, “Well, fuck if I know. You both are hooked up right and so that shouldn’t happen.”
After fiddling around a while more and getting nowhere, he said, “But you’re getting the channels you want, right?” and the Butcher and the neighbors both said that they were and, supposedly, he gave them a big wink and said, “Then I’ll just trust you not to watch the ones you aren’t paying for.” and with that, he left.
