The cancellation of the visit from our island province’s resident computer god saved me a few pesos. Panoy, is known throughout the land of sweet mangoes, Guimaras, for his computer savvy. The tech wizard could have solved my problem with Globe quicker than a young boy can wipe snot off his nose with a shirtsleeve.
Who says you can’t teach an aging fossil something new? “Crusty Old Expat Cancels Computer God’s Visit” celebrates the fact that even an aged geezer like me can overcome obstacles. While I might be in my twilight years, ready to meet Jesus any day now, I actually finally figured out how to add my new internet service to my existing Globe account on my own.
I’m excited about Globe’s new sensational super duper internet plan, which is simply called “The Plan”. Brothers and Sisters in the congregation, lift up your hands and shout “Amen!” It’s a joyous day for this American expat in the Philippines. I’m more excited than Thor at a two-for-one sale on hammers!
Will San Miguel Corp, SMC, become the 3rd major telecommunications player in the Philippines and break the stranglehold of the Globe/PLDT duopoly? After suffering as a subscriber to Globe’s internet “service” for almost two years now, I certainly hope so.
