Patience While Using the Internet

When using a dial up Internet connection, you develop a patient attitude, because the speeds are as slow as a snails pace. Just going to a simple search engine will take a minute. Checking your email takes 5 minutes, and watching a short video is an hour long event. My patience wore out one day, and I couldn’t take the slow speeds anymore. Often I’ll get emails telling me to “click here for Internet plans”, but I hardly ever read them. They either end up in the spam folder or in the trash. I went into the spam folder to find one of these emails and clicked on it.

On my slow connection, the email took a long time to load, and the page that came from the link in the email took even longer to load.
