So I have cable.
    #469047 - 08/28/10 06:43 PM (6 years, 3 months ago)

And aparently have been paying for HD channels for a long time even though I just recently got an HD T.V. So I call up the cable company and ask if I can get some of my money back. And the guy was like "ahhh that sucks, but there isnt anything I can do." I was like :kingcrankey: What do you mean there isnt anything you can do? He said that since I had "used" the HD channels, that I have to pay for them.

I was like :wtf: I didnt even have an HD TV till a month ago. And he was like "there isnt anything I can do for you". And then he has the nerve to try to sell me fucking phone service.

I think I'll call back tomorrow....

Sounds like that guy had it right, they don't know if you had an HDTV or not. You entered a contract with those channels included. that is your fault not theirs, thats how they will look at it. Maybe you can cry a little bit to a supervisor who will give you a credit to your bill or something.

I tried to re-open an account with GameFly after they sent me to collections, and they canceled my shit the next day. so I used this online chat support service and bitched at them and they told me there was nothing they could do. So I asked for a supervisor, they asked if I could hang on a minute while one called me. While I was waiting for the call, I typed "Get to the choppah, do it now!" to the chat support box. Well like 10 minutes later this chick calls me and is like, sorry I took so long to call I couldn't stop laughing at the Arnold quote. She then tells me she fixed everything and the 100$ I previously owed them was gone and she gave me a free month of service! Booya! :vaped:I dunno, read Kevin Mitnick's book The Art of Deception. :randy:

Another good book is Influence by Robert Cialdini.  great book on negotiating gambits and heuristics that you can exploit.

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:

No, the guy had it wrong. They came to my house and charged me for HDTV even though I didnt have one. The guy even admitted to being wrong but said there was nothing he could do.
