They proceed by telling me they were going to bump my payment up $20/month. I ask why. One of the representatives said, "To upgrade your channels so you can receive more and also get a land-line phone."
I hate when that happens. Don't tell me what I'm going to receive with my money, or what you are going to do with it when I did not petition you for your service. <-----My only rant
Now I don't recall ever asking for anything. So being me, I interrupt the young man telling him, "No thank you. I didn't ask for that because I never wanted it. I'm quite satisfied with what I have."
He replied with, "Okay, thank you ma'am", and went to the next door. As I was closing my door, I heard the other gentleman say, "Man she didn't go for that at all." I re-opened the door asking what was meant by the comment and he said, "Nothing ma'am."
As I was about to call the company disclosing my experience with them, I thought, how many people said yes without giving much thought to what was being said to them? Unfortunately, some of my neighbors did. I asked them about their experience as they were going off to work this morning. How many times are we caught off guard by people talking us into something because we really weren't paying any mind to what they were saying at all? Whether out of being busy; just plain exhausted; or not wanting to deal with anybody at the time, we need to pay close attention to what the other party is saying. You never know what agreement you have made when you don't. In some cases, you never know what relationships are being put into jeopardy when you're not paying attention.
Beware and be safe!
