Sometimes I have a hard time making phone calls. I just dread the conversation. When the kids were little, I waited until my husband came home and made him call the babysitter. I don’t know why. I blame it on being an introvert.
So, when I started complaining about the cost of Comcast about last November (that’s 6 months ago if you’re counting, my son-in-law suggested that I call them and tell them I was going to cancel, and he assured me that they would not let that happen; they would move heaven and earth to get me to stay. Good idea I thought. But I didn’t call, just berated myself for. To having the guts to make the call.
So, today, I thought, “enough is enough” and made the call. When you tell the machine that you want to leave, you are sent to a special person in the solutions department. I told him my dilemma. (I said I was retired now and just couldn’t afford it and so wanted to cancel). He right away offered me the “triple play” which they have been calling me about for a year. You have to have phone service to get the triple play and I don’t want a landline. This was a savings of about $15. I simply said, that just isn’t enough. Well, long story longer, I ended up with a plan that was about $60 cheaper per month than my current plan. He just kept finding one more discount, gave me a new modem and a new DVR. In case you haven’t done the math $60 for 6 months, actually 7 because it takes a month to get the new price, is $420. That’s a high cost for giving in to being uncomfortable.
Why I’m hereI will use this blog to reach out creatively, document the things I'm doing, what makes me happy, excited, hopeful, and maybe sometimes what makes me sad. I'll try not to bore you.
