You could say that your neighbor doesn't want you leeching off his internet anymore. If she takes the bait you could have her believe that internet leeching is technically illegal (it actually is if you don't have the consent of the person you're leeching from).

Or you could go the hard way and actually earn money with a job.

Well I already pay my cell phone bill 100% and that takes most of my income. If I start giving her money for internet I wouldn't be able to go out with friends since everything they want to do cost money.

cant you ask your neighbour to upgrade his line and then share the bandwidth so he gets 60% and you get 40% or something
if not then i agree paying for it yourself isnt that bad. or atleast halfing with parents. i have a crappy job with a crappy wage and i work low hours but i could still pay 25 a month for the rip off broadband im on atm.. although my parents pay for it

there you go, $15/month.
And if all else fails, you could just try to take control of your cell phone usage and lower the bill by $15, giving you the money to pay for the internet.

If you want, you could have a free dial-up service, but I know you're going to hate it.

Cheap DSLs from Version maybe? I don't know what Verison has.
