Note to self: next time I have a technician come to the house to install/fix an internet service, wear a computer geek t-shirt that day. Today's tech spent a bunch of time trying to explain to me how a wifi router works by using words five letters and less. 😂
Update: well, fuck. I Dunning–Kruger'd myself. Turns out the problem I blamed on the ISP really wasn't their fault---it was the fault of my third-party wifi router.
I guess the appropriate clothes to wear the next time I need the tech is a clown costume.
@harding "thingy" is six letters already, so I couldn't do it
