You know, the cable company sucks. It doesn’t matter which cable company. They all suck. I really don’t get how they get away with being the only game in town. How can there not be competing cable companies in every neighborhood? How is this not a monopoly? Anyway, I called to cancel our service today, all excited that our cable bill is about to drop by $120, only to find out that internet by itself costs more than internet with cable. Why? Because. Sure, it’s only $15 more than I was expecting to be paying for internet only, and yeah, that’s hardly anything, and yes, we’ll still be saving $105 dollars a month (except it’s really $100 because the cable modem costs $5 a month to rent, and yes, I know, we could buy one), but come ON. Why be a jerk about it, Comcast? Why put your surliest guy on the phone to handle downgrades and service discontinuations? Do you expect your customers to come back when that guy is the last experience we have with you? Or do you just write us off and expect to drum up new customers every time somebody moves in?
Oh, that’s exactly what you do? Right, ’cause there’s no other cable company in town. Right.
But, hey, you know, whatever. I’ve got my internet and I can watch ALL my shows right there, whenever I want. Take THAT. (Where “THAT” equals the money I give you every month so I can keep my internet. Maybe I should stop yelling at the cable company.)
