Cable Guy Is Tired of Your Shit

If you have to make 39 trips to someone’s house, the least they can do is appreciate your perseverance and shut their damn mouths.  Chicago area Comcast technicians have had up to here with you people and they aren’t going to take it anymore.  Chicago sports suck now anyway.  Get out of the house. Go eat some hot dogs and drink some beer.  And as my dad proclaimed last night, “they pay a guy $5 million to coach basketball and then want to charge me another $8 to watch it.  To hell with ESPN….U.”

Days after it was revealed that Comcast changed one customer’s first name to “A**hole,” the company pulled a similar stunt again, changing 63-year-old Mary Bauer’s name to “SuperB****.”

Bauer, who lives in Addison, Illinois, told her story on Chicago’s TV station WGN, claiming Comcast’s cable service has been very poor, with 39 technicians showing up at her home to fix technical issues from November 2013 to April 2014.

After the problems were finally fixed, she stopped receiving bills from Comcast, prompting her to call the company again. Finally, in January she received the bill — this time, with her name changed to SuperB**** Bauer.

Just like Ricardo and Lisa Brown, who were on the receiving end of a similar stunt from Comcast in late January, Bauer claims she was not rude to the Comcast operator.

“This is a disgrace to me. Why are they doing this to me? I pay my bills. I do not deserve this,” she told WGN.

Comcast told WGN it is “investigating this thoroughly,” promising to reach out to Mary Bauer.
