God You'd Think the World Ended..

We take calls for a cable company for maintence emergencies after hours. The way some people carry on when the cable goes out you'd think the world was about to end! I get yelled at, threatened, and get people trying to bribe me to fix thier cable. Whats funny is that about half time the problem they have is a problem of thier own doing (disconnecting the cable then not hooking it up right or not having the TV set on the right channel for the set top box)!

People need to get a life that doesn't revolve around a box sitting in a living room! Read a book, go to the beach, shop at the local mall, or play with your attention starved kids in the backyard. The networks rebroadcast everything a million times have a little patience and you'll see it eventually.

For the phone Internet and TV it cost $114.00 plus your taxes. If I got all the premium packages it would be around $165.00.

People are insane, I don't understand how anyone could let TV rule their lives. I have trouble watching a "series" on TV because I'm never around when it's on. I use hulu.com for all my TV needs anymore.

To be completely honest, I don't even own a TV. My roommate does, but I don't. I own a Wii, but no TV...
