A few days ago I wrote a rather angry post voicing my frustrations with Comcast cable for telling us it would take a day to set us up with internet, then saying two to three days, then saying 7 to 14 days.
Well apparently some uppity ups with the Comcast corporation read my blog and did some investigation. After discovering that our street has never been wired for Comcast ever, the uppity up blog readers at Comcast are making sure that we are getting our internet service expedited.
This is both totally sweet and creepy as hell.
The sweet part comes from the fact that, well, my blog works, you know? I wrote something in anger and the right people noticed. My blog wanted answers and it got answers. It's every blogger's dream. And I suppose kudos to Comcast for helping me out when I needed it.
But on the other hand, it's also pretty creepy, right? I write something on my blog against Comcast and suddenly the Comcast police are there to give me great customer service. I mean, does Comcast have some sort of room with a hundred people whose sole job it is to scour the internet looking for angry remarks towards their company? I expect that from the Nazis who run Disney but not some random cable company.
And also, I'm a little bit worried about privacy issues. I mean, does C.E.O. William Q. Comcastenberg now know how often my wife and I have sex? Will the guys who come on the 3rd to drill tunnels into the ground in front of my house know I struggle with wanting to slit my wrists? Will the customer service rep on the phone know about the robbery I was in?
Comcast may be pretty awesome. And they officially scare me.
Anyway, hopefully I'll get my internet soon
