DirecTV: Not Ready for Some Football

DirecTV: Not Ready for Some Football

Reader Brandon had emailed with a dilemma. He lives in an apartment building that provides his cable via Qwest and DirecTV. After dropping $100 on a DVR, Brandon was informed that the dishes on his building were too old to receive local channels, which is the whole reason he bought the DVR in the first place. To add insult to injury, Qwest decided Brandon wasn’t paying a bill they never actually sent him, so they cut him off and are demanding $65 bucks.

The store owner, who was not present at the time, says the mommy was just asked cover that shit up. Nicole says she already was covered.

WalMart. Always Low Compassion, Always.

Running low on gas and stuck with nothing but a gift card WalMart won’t let you use? Far from home? Screwed? In your desperation, don’t try to sell the card at a loss to another customer. Wal-Mart will call the cops on your soliciting ass. Then they’ll throw you out of their parking lot and call you a “vagrant.”

Special K, Challenged

Special K, Challenged

“Drop a jean size in two weeks?” Meghann Marco was incredulous as she read the promise on a box of Special K. So she’s going to follow all the rules and in two weeks time, walk into Express and see if she can fit into a pair of size 2 denims. Day 1 already has her allergic to oranges, so it’s sure to be a wild ride.
