Comcast Apologizes For Calling A Customer An A-Hole In The Bill They Sent!

no title

Talk about rude!!!

A couple from Spokane, Washington recently had a fight with a Comcast rep over their bill.

When they finally did receive a new bill in the mail, Ricardo and Lisa Brown were shocked to discover that Ricardo's name had been changed to "Asshole Brown" — and the couple was VERY upset with the company!

The worst part of the whole ordeal however was when Comcast offered resistance to the couple after they tried to get the curse word removed from any future billings — seriously!

That's when they contacted Christopher Elliott who wrote about the situation on his website and has talked about it in the media since. Here's what he recently said:

If You're Thinking Of Canceling Your Service To Join Comcast Watch This Video FIRST!

Filed under: TV NewsYouTube

customer service call comcast

If you're trying to tell Comcast that you're never, ever, ever getting back together, be prepared for a rather lengthy breakup session on the phone.

That is if you can EVEN get a chance to breakup with them.

Comcast customer Aaron Spain posted a video on YouTube of a call he made to the company trying to disconnect their services.

At the point where the video begins Aaron had already been on hold in excess of 3 hours.

Not very much of a provider, are we, Comcast?

Then, Aaron decided to use another phone to prove that he had been put on hold for so long, Comcast's customer service offices were actually closed for the day.

It would appear that Comcast employees care about you so much, they're willing to ignore you until they're off the clock! Wow, they're THAT committed.

Filed under: TV NewsHoward SternJay Leno

This probably won't make Howard Stern stop trashing him on the radio, but NBC has confirmed that Tonight Show host Jay Leno took a 50% pay cut to protect his staff from inevitable layoffs.

Between 20 and 25 employees lost their jobs at the late-night talk show last month, but the bloodbath could have been a lot worse because Leno gave up $15 million for the people working behind the scenes!

That's pretty admirable if you ask us considering
