If there is one thing that all of humanity can agree on, it's hating cable companies. Seriously, there is nothing more torturous, circuitous, distressing, traumatizing, or vexatious than trying to get anything done with a representative there. From Time Warner to Comcast, everyone seems to have their own horror stories (I most definitely have mine). But it's oddly comforting to know that misery loves company -- take Ryan Block's call with Comcast, for a prime example, as he tries to cancel his service.
He and his wife had switched to another provider, and their call with the Comcast representative was equally exasperating and entertaining. We've all been there, right? And what did disgruntled customers do before the Internet, anyway?
