Aight, so, if I haven't already bitched at you enough about it, my ISP is absolute shit. They have a monopoly over the shit town my dad decided to live in, so they are THE ONLY provider of phone, cable, and internet here. I'm fine with not having satellite, but what I'm not fine with? This absolute shit internet speed, and what it costs. A little over half a megabyte a second. For a whopping one-hundred United States Dollars.

As if it's not bad enough, my dad's girlfriend's family, for whatever reason, just cannot get their life together. Now, I'm fine with just her and my dad and I being here, the same with her daughter-in-law ((Her son is bi-polar schizophrenic and currently in jail, but will be released in about a week.)) However, I cannot stand her daughter. As a person, she's fine, I guess. Thing is, she has a code-breaker or something --- I locked our connection specifically to keep other people from downloading things on it and slowing down the internet, and she never. Asked. For. The. PASSWORD. Whenever she does one little thing, the internet entirely shits itself. She adamantly claims she's not connected to our internet. Now, if it were just when she was on facebook or something, I could believe it. Thing is, she also gives her phone to her son to watch videos on for major portions of the day ((This kid is 3 and she's been here a few months and I have seen no attempts to potty-train him, he's still wearing diapers and not coming to anybody when he shits himself, but that's a story for a different day)), the internet speed slows down entirely --- I can't even send messages through Steam, which is humbly running in the background, doing nothing, as I bid my downloads for the night and while I'm at school.

Sure, you may be thinking, "But Todd, it's just games!" Well, you're partially right. Except for the fact that for the past four or so years, our school system has been deploying iPads for education ((Really, a shit move on their part)), and we've been gradually moving to E-learning. We have, at the very least, an obligation to get at least 10 topics mastered on an online math tutoring system style of thing called ALEKS, per week. I get that for Algebra Enrichment. Which I can't do it in, because I'm in a little thing called Algebra that Works --- Also known as, "Let's put this kid who is very slow with math in a class where you do a new thing every day with no review!" And I'm so backed up that I haven't even started the papers from a week and a half ago, trying to at least come up with an answer for the questions on the first two week's, and mostly bullshitting answers just to get the fucking papers in, so I'm working on old papers in Algebra Enrichment. As if that's not bad enough, even if I had time for ALEKS, I'm already so exhausted from waking up so fucking early and being on a bus full of screaming 12 year olds for a solid hour busride, on top of two medicines that make me tired, I tend to fall asleep in there anyways.

And sure, when I come home, I fuck around and play games or something for 15 minutes to an hour, but then I try to start on ALEKS, and I utterly cannot, simply because either she's on her phone or her kid is ((When I hear that stupid Gummi Bear song I honestly want to take the baseball bat in the corner of my room and knock that kid's head as far out of the ballpark as possible. Yes, I understand, that seems cruel, but I cannot fucking stand kids, double for that song, triple for my shit internet connection being eaten by that song.)) I'm sitting on a loading screen for a solid five minutes and then when I try to log in, it takes too long to load so I'm forced back out like a homesick newborn.

On top of that, it's currently 12:30 here, and she's using her phone so my connection is too bad to do anything still. And yes, 12:30 in the morning. As in, I have to wake up in about four hours to get ready for school. I can't get home early enough for her to not be here, since I get home at four in the afternoon --- Yes, kiddos, from the time I get up for school to the time I get home, it's twelve hours, in case you thought my school system was alright ((There's only one fucking high school in the entire county. We even pull kids from another county. 3 and a half thousand kids occupying a school originally built for 2,000 ain't fun.)) so I have to try to squeeze in as much time as possible. I'm supposed to get off the computer by 10 at night, but how the everliving fuck am I supposed to do anything, or get anything done until about two-thirty in the morning when she leaves for work? So, until she leaves, I'm stuck in a slump of fail-and-try-to-get-things-done-without-getting-caught-for-an-hour-and-a-half.

Everybody but her son complains about her being here, even her own mother. Y'know, it's one thing to interfere with my fun, another to interfere with my education. If things keep going the way they are, she will probably have to be legally removed from the house. I've honestly suppressed so many urges to tell her to get the fuck out, so much pent up anger, I'm probably going to get suspended for getting in a fight with some stupid cunt.

Jesus fuck My internet died twice while I wrote this. This was 20 minutes of my life to write this. I hope she leaves soon, and takes her kid with her.

DISCLAIMER: Todd is an asshole and he hates children. If you feel offended by the fact that he doesn't like children, kindly lube up your shock and shove it up your ass, people have preferences and opinions other than yours. And if you disagree with that, then for your own good, get off the internet now, and never return.

Damn, that sucks. I know what it's like living with someone you can't stand for various reasons, I've got one of those in my house too. But that's a story for another day.
