Cable Is Like Smoking: Expensive, Tough to Quit
Whether or not you love television, and there is a lot to love, it is a sure bet that you hate the cable company. However, here in the early 21st Century, there is no good excuse to keep paying for cable TV — it’s a dirty, disgusting and expensive habit.
That said, Time Magazine’s Ben Taylor has written a bit of cord cutter fluff that begins with this gold, pure gold description of cable TV:
Trying to cut cable is like trying to quit smoking. You’ve been meaning to do it for years. You know exactly how much money you could save. You’re even getting disapproving looks from that 23-year-old neighbor … you know, the one who thinks it’s a disgusting habit that belongs in a previous century. But you still can’t deny how relaxing it is after a long, stressful day at work.
Quit cable, it’s as bad as smoking…
