    When I got the service hooked up I gave the guy a 20.

    Service call today to get my Internet squared away, no tip.

    When I was a young teenage lass, I just moved from the sticks into the big city. The Comcast came to my new apartment to install the wiring. He had me standing on chairs and ladders helping him.
    I only realized a couple of years later that I had been taken advantage of. :tears:

    my cable was out for 21 days and 1 hour. 4 or 5 phone calls, 4 different guys came to the house. the last one fixed the problem in 15 minutes. the first 3 were apparently chimps in human costumes.

    fuck them all. the guy who fixed it was a subcontractor and didn't work directly for the shitty cable company.

    fuck you cox cable!


    21 fucking days. :bigcry:
