The Cabler

Waiting for the cable guy is certainly one of the most annoying things I have ever had the displeasure of undertaking.  Some dude with dirty boots comes into your house, snoops around, then has to run his grubby hands all over your keyboard to connect to the central switch.  The worst part is that some companies still charge you to have to experience this!  I know not everyone knows how to run cable through their house, or how to connect to the branch line, or even how to program the remote, but dammit I do!  I don’t want to pay for a service that I would enjoy doing myself!  That being said, enjoy some more break-in nonsense with “The Cabler.”
