You see those shorts and shoes over there on the left? Well, let me tell you about the service rep who came to my front door yesterday dressed pretty much the same way, but not quite as nicely. (Oh, did I just hear someone think to themselves "not as nicely?" You mean, you don't like the long baggy shorts and the big clunker shoes that are unlaced? Well, at least the shorts look pressed and he's wearing socks.)
You see the guy who came to my front door was dressed like this: Baseball cap on backwards, a long sleeved, stretched out, gray t-shirt that looked like it had been crumpled up on the floor all night before being put on that morning with the name COMCAST printed across the front, long shorts that came down to the middle of his shins with big-ass black, high-top sneakers with no laces and no socks.
When I turned the corner into my front foyer and saw this guy standing on the other side of the glass door, my heart kind of did an instant jump into my throat because he looked like a thug. It wasn't until I got a bit closer that I could read COMCAST on his shirt. But, even with that, I didn't feel comfortable opening the door. Thank goodness Mr. YnB was home, because if he wasn't, I don't believe I would have let him in. Now, don't get me wrong.... I was not profiling....this guy was dressed so inappropriately for a representative of a company, it was astonishing. Not only that, little Simon (our Yorkie) was also going through his Yorkie Terrorist routine when someone comes to the door that I had to pick him up and lock him in a room in order to open the door. When I came back to the foyer, the guy was fiddling with the door knob like he was trying to let himself in!
We really do despise Comcast as of late, but unfortunately, they are the grand cable lord of our village and satellite is not a feasible option for us. I've thought about calling Comcast to give them a piece of my mind, but the thought of going through the never-ending chain of people to get to someone who MIGHT show concern for my opinion about their slovenly representative, just turns me off.
Have you ever felt like voicing a complaint to a company, but said to yourself "to heck with it" because you know the effort would be in vain and more frustrating than it's worth?
