I May Be Homeless
So yeah, I did something a little bad in the heat of the moment. Our satellite bill went from $25 to $40 a month and none of the lower channels were working anymore. You can pretty much guess how it went from there. I called and asked nicely to put it back to $25 and fix it. Hmmmm, transferred to another department and was told that I would have to pay to have someone come out to look at it but I could shut it off without a charge. And also that I was never entitled to the local channels that stopped working. I told the Dish Network employee that he was making it worse but was really selling shutting it off. So he shut it off then and there. I then asked about the $40 charge for the next month and he told me that they never charged me. Ummmm but I'm looking at my credit card statement online and yes, I was charged. That's what prompted me to call. No you weren't charged, he replies.
I was so frustrated by the time I got off the phone that I was glad that I canceled it. That was until I had to tell Den what I had done. I tried to tell him about all the money that we would be saving. Honestly, that didn't fly. He wasn't interested in streaming Hulu or Netflix either. He looked at me like I was a bit nuts when I told him the story. He would rather that I mutilated his arm than get rid of TV. I'll fix this I promised as he walked away mumbling. Did I mention that all three cars went down this weekend? The black car is still in the same sorry state as before and the brakes were almost gone in both the Kia and the Lumina. At one point, we only had one barely working car. So he worked all weekend and had no TV to watch. I'm lucky he didn't kill me!
Any ideas about the satellite,
