The World is a Strange Place

The world isn’t exactly what I was expecting. How did it get like this? Too many people buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have to impress people they don’t even like in the first place. 
People run businesses trying to collect money from people that don’t have any. 
A bank hires people to call strangers to tell them their credit card is not in trouble at this time, but they can give them a much better interest rate. 
A total stranger calls strangers on the phone to tell them five reasons why they are voting for Newt Gingrich. 
I’ve only been married once, but I always say I’ve been divorced five times so they won’t think I’m different. 
Our mailman leaves six pieces of junk mail in our mailbox and we put it in our trash so it can be recycled. 
I made a special trip to my cable company to lodge a complaint about my bill being increased until I can no longer afford it. Of course that was a waste of time, so I asked what happened to the lightening speed they are always talking about. “Oh, you must need a new modem, I will have a service man put a new one in for you”.  So it was proven that I had the speed of molasses, and he replaced it and now I have lightening speed.  When I received my bill they had reduced it by $38.00.  She had told me the bill was fine. I am holding my breath on that one. If I call to find out why, I am afraid they will say there has been a mistake and jump it back up sky high. If I don’t say anything maybe they won’t notice. Is that being sort of dishonest?  My conscience hasn’t kicked in yet. I'm sure the next month will bring it back up there.
