So I ask some people about installing new modems and they go, “Well it can be tricky”, so I take forever to get my ass around and deal with it.
Finally I walk in and they’re all like, “Eh, pretty cheap part, 14 bucks or so. And that would be $35 dollars labor.”
I stand there at the desk with my jaw on the floor and go, “Is it really that hard?” and the kid working with the owner looks over at me, makes sure I have his attention, and shakes his head NO.
So I just buy the part – half of 14 dollars used, and go home to find out that all I had to fuckin’ do was unscrew a screw and plug the new one in. Excellent!
