Evil Cable Company

It has been a crazt week and I haven’t had a spare moment (well at least none where I had access to internet) to blog. Hubby and I are still looking for the right internet provider. speaking of wich. I though I would share with you all my recent run-in with a “Dish Network” representative.

This is how our phone call went

Him: “Hello this is —- (I don’t remember his name), how can I help you”

Me: “I just got this mailer this morning and I was wondering about your $19.99 plan”

Him: “Oh, that’s just our basic local channels. What channels are you looking for”

Me: “Um… we were thinking about AMC, TLC, Life, HGTV, ESPN and Fuel”

Him: “Well then you’ll want our $24.99 plan it has all those plus movie channels for free for three months”

Me: “Hmmm… I’ll have to think about it, thank you though.”

Him: “So you don’t really care about what you’re watching as long as it’s cheap” -click- he hung up on me.

totally uncalled for. I was being very polite. I know that they work on commission but I wasn’t about to pay for something that I couldn’t afford just because he wanted me to and I ended the conversation as soon as I knew I wasn’t going to purchase.

Now after having that conversation there is no way that I am going to purchase anything from them and I am going to tell all of my friends and family about it so they don’t purchase anything from them either.

I know that I can’t single-handedly make everyone not want to purchase anything from those people but hopefully my voice can make a difference.
