Just kidding. May they burn in hell. I got a letter from them saying we had one or more set-top boxes that had to be replaced because they were going to some different kind of crap by Oct.6. The box on my set is only a couple months old so when I checked we only needed one for DWs TV. I have always insisted that one secret to a happy marriage is two TVs at opposite ends of the house.
I had to get a different box a few months ago when I finally broke down and replaced my old SDTV with a flat screen. Fortunately my stepson knows how to connect all this stuff. We both have (wait for it) a VHS/DVD player attatched to our sets. Her VHS recorder gave up the ghost years ago so I added DVR service to hers. Best ten bucks I ever invested.
When I took my old box to the Comcast office I had to take a number. There were 19 people ahead of me. There was a young Hispanic girl doing traffic control or something. There were plenty of illegals there so my guess is she was primarily an interpreter. I axed her about getting a new box for my other set. She had no clue. She guesed I had to disconnect the old box, drive 15 miles to the south end of town, and exchange it. I assured her that wasn’t gonna happen.
I ordered the new box through the mail and it arrived UPS a couple days ago. My beloved child bride insisted that I call and make sure this box had the DVR function, since it didn’t indicate so anywhere on the unit. I called and talked to some dude in Calcutta or New Delhi or someplace who was very difficult to understand. He told me to very much find the number on the back of the box thank you so much. After I gave it to him there was a long silence. Normally what they do when they can’t to get rid of you is put you on hold and walk away for an hour. When he came back he assured me it was a DVR unit. Was there anything else he could helping me with today?
Yeah,why did my bill jump $20 this month for no reason?
Have a pleasant day, sir, and thanking you for calling Comcast.
Son is coming over at some point today to hook it up. He loves his mama. I’m betting the dothead lied to me just to get rid of me. We’ll see soon enough.
