shizbgby_v2: gweilo8888: The My Little Pony Killer: shizbgby_v2: As a Comcast CAE I am getting a kick out of this.

/Not really.
//I can go on about how good this company is when it comes to their employees, but that will not matter because their image to the customer is so tainted so it will fall on deaf ears.

I'm glad they treat their employees well but I still do honestly believe that they deserve to be burned to the ground.

Yeah, no they don't. Happened to be talking to a service tech today; my wife used to work for Comcast years back. Tech told her the division she worked in were told their call center was being moved to a different town (with not a day's notice), that the company would help them move if they wanted to go to the new call center, then security escorted the lot of them out of the building. Let me repeat, not a single day's notice. Yes, it's second-hand info, but it's second-hand info from a current Comcast employee talking to a former Comcast employee.

Wow.

My last job we knew our department was going to Canada months before. The jobs were not offered to us to move (that would have been extremely awesome).

I highly doubt that happening to my call center, since we are the top in the division...but you never know.


Seriously, I'm glad they treat their employees well. I'd personally need pretty good amenities myself if I'm going to be involved with a company as evil as they are. They totally deserve to be burned to the ground.

Ika7734: just_another_asshole/jaa: Ika7734: just_another_asshole/jaa: ChicagoKev: just_another_asshole/jaa: ... friends three blocks away can get Comcast and I,m stuck with that other crappy company with to many levels of service..

If you are looking to get channels not cheaply available where you live, there is a workaround.
Just ask your friends to add-on one of the mini Comcast boxes (tuner, does not allow PPV) and to host a Slingbox for you. Should cost all of five bucks a month, or just buy them a six pack every so often.

Mini Comcast boxes? Sorry but I don't see how that would work, stretch cable for three blocks?

looking at Slingbox it appears to work on WiFi, I tried to get Comcast to deliver service over WiFi but the rep I was talking to said they were not able to do so, but he appeared to be considering the idea so maybe some day.

Maybe I'm taking the bait...
Slingbox is a device you put in your house. It transcodes the tv signal into a webpage type deal. You have to setup your internet router to allow inbound traffic to the sling box, then you can watch your tv shows like watching stuff on youtube, but the resolution should be better.

No bait, I have heard of Slingbox but had no idea how it works, so thankz for the info! So I would need to contact Century Link and have some southeast Asian try and do something correctly! Then get that person to switch me to someone in the states that I can understand before the biatch hangs up on me! I'd rather go without!

Actually no. It would be a setting on the wireless router, or workstation firewall rules. You shouldn't need to call them. In fact, the sling box would sit at the house of the folks who have comcast. I may have muddled that a bit. You would be able to leech off of their pain.


My wireless signal does not go three blocks, it wont even go outside the building unless I'm under my window and then it's only about half strength!

Which will be more efffective in stopping Comcast from sending out aggressive salespeople: calling the cops on an incident involving the salesperson, or calling the media to shine the light on Comcast's business practices?


The cops had been called on them the week previously. That's why they made the comment about calling the cops to the woman from the article.

Right, I actually agree with you here. I think the cops should be called for the incident regarding the salesperson, but the media should be alerted about Comcast sending these salespeople out and performing aggressive sales tactics. The former to address the single incident, the latter to address the overall matter.

The My Little Pony Killer: udhq: Has anybody yet considered that maybe the reason so many people around the world hate Americans is because we're a ghoulish people who respond to the mild inconvenience of pushy sales people with gruesome murder fantasies?

I'm sorry, but I'm just not going to treat this thread like it's normal.

It's not an inconvenience. It's a very real fear that this strange person who I have not invited into my secure building and who refuses to state his business wants to cause serious harm to me. Am I not allowed to feel safe in my own home?


If you are in a secure building how did they get in? If your manager's office did not let them in they are trespassing and you only have to call the cops and have them arrested, and the manager should be in agreement with that, if not maybe you should move to a real secure building!

The cops were called on these guys. You know how they responded? They left the area before any officers had the chance to show up and catch them.

I have no idea how they got into my secure building, maybe they convinced somebody who was already entering the building that they had an appointment?

They certainly were trespassing, that's why this made the news.

Any other stupid questions?

The Slingbox takes the output from a cable set top box and hosts it like a Web site over the Internet. The person who has the Slingbox has to make changes to their router to allow incoming connections from the outside world onto the Slingbox.

All you need to do as the Slingbox leecher is get the URL generated by your friend's Slingbox and enter it in your browser of choice. There may be a plug-in to install, but that's it. You don't use their wireless connection; you just use your own Internet service like you do for anything else.

Smackledorfer: Step one: talk just long enough to find out what is being sold.
Step two: tell them you already have it.

Works every time. For you castle defenders: catch them continuing to harass and you've increased your ability to articulate they were a threat.


Or for the goof, let them ramble every line in their script and then start with the improv. Then tell them that you're not interested and to kick rocks.

Works on Jehovah's Witness too.

I should be in the kitchen: Door to door people can really be sketchy, and I bet these guys were just scammers or checking out places to rob later.

CSS time:
My parents usually don't get solicitors at their house but one day some guy, probably late 20s-maybe 30, came around selling some kind of cleaning product. Dad answered the door and told the guy "no, we're not interested" as he started his spiel... Dad had a strange feeling about the guy so a minute later he went outside and walked down the driveway, and the bastard had keyed their car! It made me so angry, and a little worried for them. They live in a nice quiet neighborhood but shiat happens everywhere.

I'm glad where I live, there's a "no solicitors" sign at the gate to the subdivision In the nearly three years I've lived here, I've only had one person come to my door selling something, and that was a kid who probably didn't know any better.


I had one of those guys come to my parents house, i happened to be there so i dealt with the guy, as my folks would rather not have the hassle. He kept persisting, and asked if there was anything i would like him to demonstrate his product on, so I let him. When he was done scrubbing the oil stain out of the driveway with his toothbrush and wunderproduct, I told him he could hang out and scrub shiat around here for free or he could move on. He actually did a hell of a job on the oil stain.

Vodka Zombie: Isn't Washington a "Stand-Your-Ground" state?


Why, yes, Washington is a "Stand-Your-Ground" state. (RCW 9A.16.050) Actually Washington has no 'duty to retreat', as precedent was set in State v. Studd (1999) and State v. Reynaldo Redmond (2003) when the court found: "that there is no duty to retreat when a person is assaulted in a place where he or she has a right to be." And Washington is generally considered a Castle Doctrine state.

valkore: udhq: It's more than that, though. I had an uncle who was a survivalist, he stockpiled weapons and canned food, gas masks, etc., you name it. He was preparing for society to break down, any way possible. And towards the end of his life, I could tell in the way he talked about it, that he was actually *looking forward* to the apocalypse and being able to use all his toys.

It's the same with a lot of these gun people who talk big. "Protection" seems to be a pretense, but in reality, they just seem to want an excuse to murder someone without consequences. And the way America society seems to treat that as normal always seems to me like some sort of collective sociopathy.

Nailed it on the head. I can see these cowards getting a chubby when they hear a knock at the door because it might mean they finally get to test out their .357 on a live target, not get criminal charges booked against them (civil charges like wrongful death are conveniently forgotten about), and have a story to tell their buddies at the bar that will never get old.

And I don't think American society in general condones this behavior. There is a huge difference between owning a gun for protection, and then stretching the notion of protection to include defending yourself from the local Comcast sales guy trying to sell you a crappy cable package.


y'all are getting all worked up over bullshiat trolling.

Back in the day I knocked on thousands of doors in less than safe places. Not once did anyone ever flash a piece. No matter how scary looking I was, or how hardcore they were, not one gun. It didn't happen to the people I worked with either, otherwise I would have heard about it. God knows we all knew within hours the ONE time some lucky SOB had a woman answer the door in an open robe... why didn't we know in seconds? It was the early 90s man.. different world.


That said: I did have a co worker catch a thief in his house in the middle of the night a few years ago.
The guy was not armed, but was whacked out on something.
My coworker held him at gunpoint until the cops arrived.
in the mean time the dude babbled incoherently, stripped naked, curled up and cried. (maybe not in that order)
I always imagined him as Smeagol

Unfortunately yes. Centurylink is the phone line provider but their DSL maxes out at 700K/128k due to distance from their CO and it failed all the time. Comcast is actually pretty good here. it is 25m/7.5m and it stayed up even when all the area power was out and were on the generator. But wow it's expensive. Neither satellite prover is an option. There are stupid mountains in the way.

It's been an industry standard for some time throughout telecom to contract various third-party companies to hawk their services. A churn-and-burn commission-only sales job is always going to produce a lot of assholes roaming around knowing they're going to quit or get fired in the foreseeable future, and that crappy dynamic is only compounded by the fact on even a "good" day for one of those sales reps, they still heard the word "no" well over 90% of the time, and probably had doors slammed in their face even when they were being polite well over 50% of the time.

Honestly, I'm just surprised this is even a story. I guarantee you the same exact scenario of a few rogue door-to-door reps happened somewhere in Toledo, Atlanta, Houston, Fargo, you name it.

MrBentor: Vodka Zombie: Isn't Washington a "Stand-Your-Ground" state?

Why, yes, Washington is a "Stand-Your-Ground" state. (RCW 9A.16.050) Actually Washington has no 'duty to retreat', as precedent was set in State v. Studd (1999) and State v. Reynaldo Redmond (2003) when the court found: "that there is no duty to retreat when a person is assaulted in a place where he or she has a right to be." And Washington is generally considered a Castle Doctrine state.


Really? that just strikes me as funny.

Maybe it's because of perspectives like this that your peers consider you a pussy>

I feel for you, man, I had an uncle who's balls didn't drop until he was well in his forties. Don't give up hope!

When they finally did drop... was he gentle? Or did you have to take the lead?

Aaaaaand, in a surprise to absolutely no one, the ITG in a "gun-as-dick-substitute" thread goes straight to the homoerotica.

You know, I'm sure you've heard this a thousand times before, but your life will be much better once you stop hating yourself for having these feelings.


Does it turn you on? Just close your eyes, baby... a mouth is a mouth.

Jument: jigger: Jument: People around the work hate Americans because you stick your nose into international affairs far too often.

Who's "you" and "your"? Don't collectivize us into something that is actually represented by the US government.

Last time I checked your government was elected. By the people. Since the country was founded.


Technically you are correct, its kind of like how a person given a choice between impaling and crucifixion chooses how they die.

The My Little Pony Killer: just_another_asshole/jaa: The My Little Pony Killer: just_another_asshole/jaa: The My Little Pony Killer: just_another_asshole/jaa: The My Little Pony Killer: udhq: Has anybody yet considered that maybe the reason so many people around the world hate Americans is because we're a ghoulish people who respond to the mild inconvenience of pushy sales people with gruesome murder fantasies?

I'm sorry, but I'm just not going to treat this thread like it's normal.

It's not an inconvenience. It's a very real fear that this strange person who I have not invited into my secure building and who refuses to state his business wants to cause serious harm to me. Am I not allowed to feel safe in my own home?

If you are in a secure building how did they get in? If your manager's office did not let them in they are trespassing and you only have to call the cops and have them arrested, and the manager should be in agreement with that, if not maybe you should move to a real secure building!

The cops were called on these guys. You know how they responded? They left the area before any officers had the chance to show up and catch them.

I have no idea how they got into my secure building, maybe they convinced somebody who was already entering the building that they had an appointment?

They certainly were trespassing, that's why this made the news.

Any other stupid questions?

I know you are a little testy but don't take it out on me! I live in a secure building and when strangers show up and enter the person on duty goes and hunts them down and escorts them out, hopefully right into the cops hands!

Wow, you live somewhere where cops actually show up in a reasonable amount of time. Good for you.

I understand panhandlers can be very scary to some people.


No my only problem with panhandlers is people like you who give them money all the time so they never have to do an honest days work in their lives.

It is the addicts and drug dealers who hang out around Micky D's, can't go to Walgreen's without a couple of them trying to sell me crack and other stuff. Also I have lived in several other cities and more people have been shot within 5 blocks of me in the past 5/6 years than in all the other 50 years I've been alive!

Because its Washington (North Hippie)? I was pleasantly surprised as well.  You should fact check that before you kill somebody tho.

Killer Cars: It's been an industry standard for some time throughout telecom to contract various third-party companies to hawk their services. A churn-and-burn commission-only sales job is always going to produce a lot of assholes roaming around knowing they're going to quit or get fired in the foreseeable future, and that crappy dynamic is only compounded by the fact on even a "good" day for one of those sales reps, they still heard the word "no" well over 90% of the time, and probably had doors slammed in their face even when they were being polite well over 50% of the time.


Polite? If you're disturbing me to try to sell me something you've already crossed the bounds of politeness as far as I'm concerned. At the door you're going to get a "not interested" and a closed door. Since we are on the do-not-call list all the legitimate ones have already been screened out. About the only non-robocall ones we get are the magazine guys who always start out by lying about who they are. (We are the ones who deliver your >x< magazine.) They're more likely to get a "get lost" or the like.

I understand panhandlers can be very scary to some people.

Move if you can afford to, or arm up if you can't, no guarantee you live to die of natural causes either way, but 'in the ghetto' is going to end the same way as long as there are ghettos.

"Comcast, we need to come in now"

"No"

"We have authority to enter your premises"
