Help! Cablevision Is In The Hall Listening Outside My Door!

Reader Newman says he got a voicemail from a Cablevision guy that was in the hallway at his work, listening through his office door. He tells us this is the final straw and he’ll be getting FiOS…

I can’t believe the lengths Cablevision are going to these days. FIOS must really be closing in…

I got this voicemail last night from an “account manager” after I had left my office for the day. Also attached is the business care this dope left. This stalker somehow got into the locked multi-office building, got my info from the business card on my door and was leaving me a voicemail from right outside my office door…

“Hey Newman, it’s ____ calling from Cablevision. I’m actually at 307 right now. Nobody’s answering but I can hear the TV on inside or something. Or the radio. I thought you might be in the office with headphones on or something like that. Yea, I’m actually covering [redacted], and the building here, on [redacted], for Cablevision.

I know you have us for internet, and I hope that everything’s ok with that, but that’s one of the reasons why I’m calling you. But also I noticed you didn’t have us for phone or TV and, uh, I’m one of the guys for businesses in town, and uh, I don’t know if you’re aware of the specials I’ve got going on right now for that but I’d be happy to fill you in at anytime. ***.***.**** is where you can reach me. Again, ***.***.**** is where you can reach me. Again my name is ___ ____ calling from Cablevision. Uh, where I’m based down on ___St. and, uh, ___ St. Which you may know is a couple blocks away from you. Get back to me whenever you need to. Thanks again for your business. Appreciate it, Newman. Take care.”

This guy’s got his ear to my door listening to my radio? Frankly, Cablevision blows. I have it at home and the service is terrible. The TV picture is pixelated at least once or twice a day, due to their crappy bandwidth I’m sure, and I’m tired of having service guys out to my house telling me it’s my TV.

You know, it’s nice that they care, but pressing an ear to your door is a little… um… unsettling.
