Oh how I hate cable and my landlord by M. Brown
Just venting. I ordered Directv because my apartment manager told me it was allowed and we finally got local channels. What she didn't tell me was that I'd have to pay an additional $100 deposit and stick the dish in a bucket of concrete. Luckily, I found out in time to cancel the order when I...
