Comcast, you funny :)
« on: July 15, 2014, 12:14:08 PM »
I am not sure this is the right category for this audio bit, but I felt that since it deals with Comcast it is probably anti-mustachian by default. This guy is trying to cancel his Comcast subscription, but the representative just won't do it. The guy has a lot more patience than I because I cannot imagine my conversation with this particular representative to go as smoothly. Ever had a conversation similar to this?

What you are hearing is desperation from the Customer Service Representative, because he works in retention for Comcast and he will get a negative evaluation for losing customers.  I used to work for a call center for a credit union back in the day and if I allowed members to close their accounts I would lose bonuses and get negative evaluations that would eventually lead to termination.  When your income is on the line, you will do anything you can -- and be as obnoxious as possible.  I really feel badly for the CSR in this clip.  Comcast is losing lots of customers right now as people decide that cable service just isn't worth it anymore.
