I’m done, Cogeco. Days on end, no email. When I was in Alaska, I drove my kids nuts telling them they’d busted the passwords or something, and that’s why my fly around internet wasn’t working. There is nothing sadder than a lonely woman trapped in a posh hotel room crying over her iPad. While Pretty Woman plays on some weird channel, because it’s that or porn or some music video channel. I hate touching the remote in hotel rooms, so I watch whatever the last person watched. That can be interesting.
Yesterday the email was out again. And they announced they’d get it fixed ‘soon’, but that’s like when my kids ask when dinner will be ready, and I say ‘soon’ which means ‘never’. It’s been wonky all day again, and ya know, they get too much of my money for this. I called some poor beleaguered bugger to complain, and he immediately promised to put through a refund for the down days (call them now and tell them you want a refund; I’ve got them on the ropes for you), though they never OFFER this to their loyal customers. Noooooo. You have to waste time on hold complaining, but the first time my kids blow one higgabyte over the limit, how long do you think it takes them to charge me for it? A nanosecond, that’s how long. I complained to him for awhile, then told him I’d get off the line so he could get to the nasty crowd waiting on hold on the other lines. He actually laughed, in a small, haunted way. I’m sure his shift never, ever ended.
I give up. I left Bell years ago, and I will not go back, mostly because of snotty attitude when I’d call for help and they’d be all ‘well, we’re BELL, doncha know” and I’d say “you still have no clue what you’re doing, the last time you were relevant we had a black dial phone sitting on the kitchen counter”. Like that.
So. Rogers here I come.
Oh, and I’m also the new host of this show. Starting September 18. It’s a car show! I’m so excited! And it’s live! Are they crazy?
If you have Rogers, I’m your new date every Tuesday night until next June. And if you don’t have Rogers, what are you waiting for?
How’s that for a little ‘by the way’?
