So I just got a called by my cable company inquiring if I wanted to decrease my Internet bill. The fact that my cable company has continually increased it’s prices year over year should be regulated. If the pandemic has taught the world anything, the Internet is a critical part of a nation’s infrastructure. The call went something like this:
CC: Am I speaking to <my name>
CC: OK. Great. I am from <cable company>, do you have a few minutes to chat and answer some questions.
CC: Thank you. So, do you want to decrease your Internet bill?
CC: OK. Now, if you could answer a few questions for me, I can help you decrease your bill.
CC: Do you watch any TV?
CC: Do you subscribe to any streaming services?
Me: Nope. (I lied)
CC: How do you watch TV shows and news?
Me: I don’t.
CC: *flustered* So you don’t subscribe to Netflix or Hulu?
Me: Nope. I cancelled them.
CC: *silence and then speaking very quickly* Well if you have any questions or support please call <phone number>. *And she hangs up on me.*
She hung up fast. I didn’t even say good bye!!
