Christ Almighty, Comcast!

Why are there always issues with Comcast? Why? Today, I can't get into my email and the message is "This service is temporarily unavailable. Wer're sorry for the inconvenience." Really, how sorry are ya? Sorry enough to work these damn issues out so they don't happen every few days? Seriously, every few days it's something else.

And for this I get to pay 115 bucks a month. If I'd ever done a job the way these people do, I'd've been fired. Difference is, they're a monopoly around here, so they can do whatever they want in this Capitalism Gone Mad country.

Comcast must be like Rogers is here...cableTV/internet/home security systems/cel phones/land line phones...you name it they've got it (at a price). Dependable...not on your ass.

It's the Waldemort world we live in. Giant behemoth companies that take over, drive small companies out of business and do whatever they want to us once we have no choice.

You're kidding! That's terrible. At least there is Bell to combat Rogers here for us in Tillsonburg, seems to help with our Bell tv/internet/phone service. (Surprised Lawless doesn't have Bell in Guelph. Hmmm.)

We have bell Carrie, I was just using Rogers as the be all and end all example of getting people signed up for "bundles" and providing inferior service.

Austan said...

Thank gods I didn't fall for the entire bundle BS. My phone is, and will always be, with a real phone company. Bad enough I have to get cable and internet with the same people.

CarrieBoo said...

Oh, I gotcha, Lawless. Tis true, they get you to lock in. Then you have to wait ages to do anything about it, eg, switch to Bell. The whole monopoly thing is just scary.

Oh my, sounds like another case of Internet Service Unprovider.
At least I had a choice. Silly me used to be with AOHell in Britain and then I got a bit smarter.
Wow, you guys pay a lot for internet. I thought this was the land of the rip-off!

Does anyone else see the irony in the Comcast guy's comment?

Austan said...

Welcome to Reagan's legacy. Deregulation and monopolies have done so much for us all.

Hi Laura,
Yes I noted the irony in that comment but thought you might like to mention it first :)

I knew you would, Gary. And you're a gentleman.
