Comcastrated again!!!
« on: Nov 07, 2008, 04:30:26 PM »
ATT service on 10/31 - $129 a month for landline, internet & satellite vs. $195 for phone & Comcast plus LOTS more channels - very happy.  Took all their shit back to the service center, of which they have 2, count'em two for the only cable company in town to serve a city of 5 million people, hence I got to stand in line for 45 minutes. Called today for the final bill, which is now higher than last month's.  The problem - the NHL Center Ice service, which we got 3 weeks off and are being charged for the entire thing through June 2009.  I slammed the phone down on the snarky twat "helping" me before I started cussing, called Eddie and told him to deal with it since he ordered the package.   :rawr:

Or maybe I'll buy this woman a plane ticket to Houston:

A 75-year-old Bristow, Va. woman has paid $345 as compensation for damages and is serving three months of probation, the result of her hammer attack on equipment in a Manassas, Va. Comcast Corp. office in August.

The consumer, Mona Shaw, said she took a hammer to the phone handsets and shoved a computer monitor off the counter after she failed to get a response by the company to her lack of phone service.

“I couldn’t think of another way to get their attention. I really couldn’t,” she said in an interview.

Shaw, a retired nurse, has a heart condition and was stressed and angered after what she said was a botched upgrade to a triple-play bundle. The subscriber said everything went wrong before she packed a hammer in her purse and went in person to the local office: the installer didn't come on the appointed day, Aug. 13, but two days later; the installation left them with incoming calls only; an attempt to remedy that left them with no service at all; an in-person visit to the Manassas office resulted in a two-hour wait, only to be told the supervisor she was waiting to see had gone home.

When a complaint to the Virginia state Corporations Commission did not elicit a response from Comcast, she packed her hardware, she said. She marched past a waiting line, started hitting things with her hammer and asked repeatedly, “Have I got your attention now?” The incident ended with Shaw’s arrest; she’s now barred from entering the local cable office.

That’s fine, she said. She has DirecTV now, and she’s returned to Verizon for phone service and has added digital-subscriber line service, she said. But some part of Comcast still thinks she's a customer: before a reporter's call on Oct. 10, she got a voice mail message thanking her for being a customer and advising her they planned to come to her place Oct. 11 "as part of her service contract,” she said, chuckling.
Tortures end me,
Death befriends me.
Of all the pains, the greatest pain
is to love, and love in vain.

Maybe if everybody who felt that way took it upon themselves to do the same thing, something would change.

That, or the jails would be full of people getting free cable, and Comcast would go out of business since nobody's left to buy their shit service.
Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

It's about time someone started destroying Comcast's offices.

She should have used gasoline and matches instead of a hammer. Or maybe explosives.
I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Modern anime is a stagnant cesspool of regurgitated ideas.
