So my little challenge is to find out if he will ever pick up the phone and make that call.
I doubt it seriously. I wonder why he offered. Would it be different if I were not in the room, if I were outside, otherwise occupied? Of course I always bring my cell phone with me (Paul no longer has one) when I go out, so I can't just leave.
In the meantime I am sucking cable life from next door when mine goes bad. They have a good strong connection and even though the signal is low I am getting online easily with it. No, I don't feel guilty about that.
