I have lost my edge. - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
I have lost my edge.
I forgot to pay the cable bill, so I believe they came out and yoinked my connection. I now have 72 channels of static.

Go me.


Well, there's no "think" about it, anymore: a call to AT&T to check things out confirms it, they unplugged me this afternoon. I had a balance of $120 that was past due, so I can't blame them. What I love is that to get the service turned back on it'll take 72 hours and another $27.95. What a great scam.

Good thing I don't watch TV that much.

Current Mood: annoyed with myself
Current Music: Neil Young - The Loner, Cinnamon Girl, Down by the River (Live)

The perfect opportunity for you to look into the wonderful world of DirecTV with a Series II Tivo! So geeky, so cool.. you know you want it.

What the heck kind of cable package do you get that costs $120? Ours only comes to $53 per month through AT&TBB, though we're castaways from Cablevision since CV likes its customers in New York more than its customers in MA.

Re: ...$120?

Wait. It didn't occur to me until just now that this is probably multiple months; even AT&T probably doesn't nix you after one missed payment.
Bad fops.
