Yes, I Can Hear You Now

I am officially imploring everyone I know to switch to Verizon, not because I feel it's the best cellular service (don't have an opinion), but because I just received this month's bill, and it's kind of a lot.

Funny thing happens when you don't have deadlines or structure to your day. You tend to talk on the phone. Quite a bit. And sure, in the back of your mind you think, "Bet this month's bill will be hefty", but when you think hefty, you're not thinking HEFTY. And so it was that this week I got a really fun surprise in the mail: the $500 cell phone bill. Ooops.

At this point, I think I need to get rid of my friends who aren't Verizon customers. I'll really miss them, but it has to be done. I can't afford to talk to them. Unfortunately, that leaves me with not that many people to talk to, and judging from my bill, I talk on the phone a lot, usually about really important things--me, for example. I need to hear people assure me that I'm okay. I need to hear this everyday, from many people, as I'm only in therapy one little hour a week. That hour goes by fast, too.

So the next few weeks will be extremely difficult for me as I ween myself off good friends. In the meantime, I am now seeking new friends. If anyone knows some cool folks with a Verizon plan, have them contact me. Perhaps I'll put up an online personal...

Your OK....Your OK....wait a minute...a 500 dollar phone bill...what are you, F-ing Nuts? :) Just kidding. :) Here's hoping you get a Verizon gig that comes with a life time of free minutes.

I feel you... i had a 232 dollars phone bill from cingular wireless. Ended up talking them down to changing the bill to 160 dollars.

I went over again this month. So, i'm tell certain people in advance not to answer the phone on the first ring. If it rings once ...it means blah blah. If it rings twice then blah blah blah. It feels like I'm on one of those commericals, but i refuse to pay another hefty cell bill.

Yikes! With a bill like that you'll need to make a quick withdrawl from a stop and rob. Perhaps email therapy instead. That's my vice. Email. Got a cell phone, almost never use it.

Laughs..I was just watching the show and found this site. Geez, $500. Sounds like the bill I had when I first got the Internet. Those long distance fees are a beast. I don't even think Verizon works in the boonies. So I guess you'll only be able to talk to city folks. :)

Hey swish just discovered the blog, very interesting. Anyway sorry for what g4techtv did. You guys had a funny show. What I can't believe is that Unscrewed is in sindication. Get rid of the people doing the show, but keep the show talk about weird. Good luck with everything you do and we'll see you at the bar.

Welp, a friend just told me about this blog, so I thought I would come on over, create an account, and say hi.


hi.


Ever try any of those online voice-chat thingies? I'll assume you have a broadband connection, so it would be perfect for chatting... assuming you're doing it at home.

I hear there are whisperings of a Sprint/Verizon/Nextel merger to combat the Cingular/AT&T thing...

afslip said...

I hate any cellphone companies, I used to use Sprint but they overcharge me too much, ever since then I quit using cellphones all together.

Misterfitz said...

Well Danforth....like that's your REAL name. The Sprint Nextel thing did happen. Verizon however, is still floating out there.

Sorry we can't help ya Laura. Switch to cingular/att and get those precious rollover minutes.....wait a minute.....you can't roll over 0 can you?

anyway, come visit me and leave a comment. http://fitzlandia.blogspot.com
