    I prefer to pay my cable bill in person. Just seeing the tart old bitty’s face working behind the counter just makes my day. But the point is, whenever you go into office more often you’re running into folks turning in DVR boxes and other cable equipment. They’re getting fed up.

    The service is lousy, the prices are worst. I’ve used the threat of switching over to another service. And what’s Miss Congenility’s reaction? Okay. They don’t give a rat’s ass.
