Time Warner's running some nice TV ads about how they're never late to install cable. They have these hapless people jumping out of the shower to answer the door, tripping over themselves, because the Time Warner Cable Guy is so early that you didn't expect it.
Last week we ordered cable, mostly because of that new Sorkin show.
The install was scheduled to happen from 5-7PM last Friday.
So around 7:15, we called to say, "Are you planning to come over?" We were told we'd get a call back right away.
We called back around 8 and were told we'd get a call back.
The lady called back and said, oh the cable guy is running really late, so you should wait until 10PM, because he'll show up.
This was one of those nights you were planning to go out to eat but then it looks like you probably won't.
Anyway, I guess the installer guy in the commercial only works in the mornings. He sure wasn't working that night.
We finally called back on Tuesday and they said it would be another week, so we told them to cancel.
Oh yeah, they didn't offer us $20 like the commercial said when we canceled.
Don't believe what you see on TV.
