I pulled up to the house on Stafford Street and waiting for me was the prem tech and customer. “You’re here to install my fiber! I’ve been waiting for this day!” The customer joyously said. The man was in his early 30’s with a short beard and nerdy glasses. I asked him what he was going to do with his billion of bits per second. He replied, “I’m into gaming.”
After I placed the new fiber drop and got all the outside work done, I told him I needed to go inside to hook up the power pack. He led me thru this maze of boxed action figures and posters of video game characters. We made it to his inner most sanctum, where he played his games. He pointed to where he wanted his battery back up placed.
“Right here. I’ll move my friends.” He said. The shelve was lined with Dr. Suess character, some easily recognizable such as The Cat of The Cat in The Hat and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish, oh you know. The moment we turned up the fiber ONT he jumped for joy and he ran into the house, I suppose he was going to binge play videos all day. He did mention he worked from home but today was going to be a play day… This too will pass
