And you better believe it!

When I come in on a Monday morning, you should see all the undeliverable
packets... all over the floor, the desks, the chairs, up the walls; it
takes an hour or two just to clean up that mess!

My cleaning bills have gone up 500% since CUSM came out.

P.S.: RonCO is entering the digital age with a self-cleaning Router; at
3am it jackes its speed up from T1 to Ethernet rates and burns out all those
pesky undelivered packets. UL approved.
