In Qwest of a deal from the phone company

In trying to cut some costs we approached the phone company we use. There's a lot of deals for new customers, but existing customers can pretty much get stuffed. It doesn't help we've "bundled" our services with them, once they got you there's no more love for you.

Adding to the fun are all the taxes and fees (even the fair city of El Garbage gets in on the act) that are piled on to support the tax fattened hyenas that run our government. So much for the free airwaves. I swear they tax you from birth to death then feed on the corpse.

In the age of communications one would think it would be easier to manage personal communications such as cell phones, internet, and home phone, but not without getting several different customer service chimps from several different companies involved. It becomes an enormous Mongolian Cluster Fuck (MCF) in short order.

Hopefully this will all get sorted with little or no damage and few lives lost, though in an operation this size one has to expect some casualties I suppose.

They do that here Phossy dear, no special deals for existing customers, as you say once they have you 'bundled' well then you are stuffed.
No rewards for loyalty or paying your bills on time, it is not fair really, but that is life.
Good luck!

That's not fair! They lure you in and forget about you.

Think it's pretty well figured out -- time will tell...
