for the past several years i've been having an enjoyable little battle with the cable/internet provider. it all started when sonny was a student and learned that he could get me a student discount if i put the service in his name and for a few years i received the service for about half price. then sonny graduated so i put the cable package in my daughter's name and continued to get the student discount. then much to my horror the cable company cancelled the student promotion and i was back to the regular price. i called customer service and negotiated a temporary 6 month discount. this was a few years ago and i've been threatening to cancel a few times a year to keep getting the discount. about a month ago i called to actually cancel the service because a different company offered me a great deal. my decision was firm, i cancelled.
last week the old cable/internet provider called to offer me a fabulous deal for 6 months, $40 for cable and high speed internet, 25mbs. they asked me what channels i wanted and agreed to give them to me. it seems i forgot to mention the 2 channels that give me pro rasslin. it looks like my pro rasslin days are over. to be honest, i haven't really watched rasslin since i quit drinking but i used to stop on the channel for a few moments whilst channel surfing. all is not lost though, when this current $40 promo is over in 6 months i fully plan to cancel and switch to the other provider to get a free smart tv and will include the rasslin channels if and when i switch.
most of my friends think i'm nuts for the time i spend arguing with the cable companies over rates but they fail to take two things into account: 1. i have more free time than brains and 2, i actually enjoy battling the cable companies.
this was my theme song for years.
i love you sons of bitches.
