well since you were doing that during the bush administration or earlier, that makes a lot more sense for why ending your internet access and phone service even makes sense as a thing to do. these days someone in that sort of situation is likely to end up fired if the boss/coworkers can't contact them about swapping shifts and stuff!!

(and i base how long ago it had to be on the fact that federal/texas minimum went over $6.25 an hour a good 11 years ago now)
