I’ve made the mistake of auto-paying one particular bill for way too long. When I first signed up with these shysters almost a decade ago, my bill was about $130 per month. That number has crept up to $252.22 as of my most recent bill. If only my freakin’ salary moved like that!
Have I added services? No. And I still have the same ancient equipment that I acquired when I first moved into my current abode — aside from that one time where the modem fried and I had to be home between 8:00am and 4:00pm a week Wednesday in order for somebody to replace it.
Last night, I happened to punch into my online profile and noticed a better plan that was $3 per month cheaper. I go through the steps to make the change to my account, only to discover something interesting under the heading of “Features.”
$6.95 per month for “Wire Care?” What the fugack is that? Do I need it because of the blazing download speeds I’ll be getting on my new plan?
