Oh, FFS Charter

This is a two-parter, involving Charter. Recent events with them caused me to remember the idiocy from before.

Everything is transferred and working perfectly. But I am unemployed, and my boyfriend had a lot of sudden expenses come up, so we decide that no really, this time we HAVE to get rid of the cable. I call Charter to explain this. Their billing cycle ends around the 21st of the month, if I remember right. I explain I want to cancel my cable, but keep the internet.

Starting Monday, we will be checking out AT&T etc. for their internet rates. Because at this point Charter can just kiss the fattest part of my ass.

Mmm, french fries

This didn't happen to me, but it happened to my brother when I was home. He and his friends had ordered some pizza and hamburgers from a place called Pizza Express, which they used to do pretty often.

First, the food was about thirty minutes late, but everything arrived eventually.

They start eating, and one of the guys find that his fries are very cold. He eats for a while before looking more closely at his food (they were watching a movie in the dark) and finds a lot of hair in it.
Not just hair, though. Hair, dirt and small rocks. Turns out the delivery man had dropped his fries on his way there, and just picked them up from the ground again.

They called the owner, and were NOT given their money back. Instead, they got 50:- credit. Like any of them were ever going to eat there again!
