When Technology Does Not Work

My cable and Internet were out the other day.  You wouldn't think this is a huge deal, but I suddenly felt like I was in some sort of survivalist scene.  Anything I could think of to do was somehow not an option for me, and I was at a loss for what to do.  Eventually, I cradled my phone for dear life and kept myself entertained with Youtube videos.

I even wanted to make a comic about my feelings but realized I couldn't post it without my precious Internet.

I unplugged and plugged the cords to my cable and my router before calling the company (because I didn't want to look like a moron) and then I spent an hour and a half on the phone with the cable tech as he instructed me to continue unplugging and plugging things.

The next day they came out, and apparently the windstorm from the night before had pulled the wires from the connection outside my house.

All is well again, but I am still stocking up on toilet paper and bottled water in case I have to survive something like this again in the future.

Please don't steal my drawings.  They may be crappy, but they are my crappy drawings.  If you use them, please attach a link to where you got them.  :)  Or I will murder you in your sleep.
