    Haha, I thought we had flipped to a new week and I was the last one done.

    I came home last night, all geared up to play some NCAA. I turned on my Xbox, and no Xbox Live. So, I switched over to cable and no cable.

    So, I called the cable company. Our conversation went something like this:

    Me: "Hello ma'am. I believe I am experiencing a cable outage."
    Lady: "What is the phone number."
    Me: "567-XXX-XXX"
    Her: "I don't have a record of that number."
    Me: "Ok, the account number is .XXXXXXXXXXX"
    Her: "Please hold."
    (I hold for 30 minutes)
    Her: "Sir, are you still there?"
    Me: "Yep"
    Her: "Well, we mistakenly disconnected your service at the pole. Our serviceman was supposed to shut off your neighbors cable."
    Me: "Ok, can you have someone come back out and turn it on?"
    Her: "Please hold"
    (30 minutes) (FYI, it is now 5:30 PM)
    Her: "Sir, we don't have a truck nearby."
    Me: "Yes you do, he is down the street, I can see him."
    Her: "Please hold"
    (15 minutes)
    Her: "Sir, he is done for the day."
    Me: "He can't come up the block and hook my cable up? It takes 5 minutes"
    Her: "Sir there is no reason to be rude."
    Me: "That wasn't rude. Could I speak to your supervisor?"
    Her: "Sir, we can reconnect your cable tomorrow."
    Me: "I bet I can get Dish to come out tonight."
    Her: "Sir, I am sorry for your trouble."
    Me: "Credit me for the month, we will call it square."
    Her: "I can't do that sir."
    Me: "Can I talk to your supervisor?"
    Her: "No"
    Me: "What?!?"
    Her: "There are none available."
    Me: "I will call back later when they are."
    (I then hang up)

    Later I talked to her boss, but it was too late to get the cable back on.

    Sheesh:)

    Heh, I half laughed when I read that, but customer service people for the most part make my blood boil.

    I think we're ready to go. KO is just honouring his recruiting penalty.

    one of the reasons i love directv. they kiss your fucking ass when you call to report a problem. if they can't help you over the phone, they ask you when you'd like to have someone come and make sure it happens. switched from time warner to directv 4 years ago to get the NFL package...best move i ever did. as good a feature as indemand is, not worth dealing with the retards at time warner to have it
