Remember the power outage I mentioned? It affected most of the state, including my mom’s house, so she was pretty bummed that she couldn’t watch her DVDs of Friends.
Me: I can bring over my laptop and you can watch it on that.
Her: Yeah, bring it, but we’ll just watch it on Netflix.
Me: I…We can’t watch it on Netflix. There’s no internet.
Her: I know. But it’s Netflix.
Me: …You can’t watch Netflix without the internet.
Her: You can’t? Why?
Me: Because you need the internet to access it like you do any website and you have no internet!
Me: No power means no modem which means no internet!
Her: …Are you sure?
Her: Are you sure you can’t watch Netflix on your laptop?
I start sobbing.
