    Hee! Hee! I canceled my cable way back in 1996. But the cable company never turned off the cable, instead they just quit sending me bills! By the time they switched to digital 10 years later, which ended my free ride, I’d switched completely to internet and couldn’t have care less.

    That’s the way to do it. Some people have to be taught the hard way that No means No.

    Second to last panel, I thought it was a lady in a burka.

    Want your cable canceled without any hassle whatever?

    1 Don’t pay your bill until the cable company cancels your service.
    2 Pay the amount owed, including any charged interest, but do not pay the reconnection fee.

    Well done, Rat! I hope your trained Ninja assassin was well compensated for this holiday season work assignment.
    Take that, Bombast!

    If only it was that easy …

    Close to home. Last month I canceled my internet host TWICE. Both were ignored.
    Umm, follow the terms of the service contract? Nah….
    The bank ended up blocking them, for which I’m thankful.
    The idiots last week sent me yet another email about my account not being paid up. There’s some irony in that the reason I canceled is that they have a track record of not fixing the mistakes they make. It just became one too many.
    I ended up losing a 3 million plus hits/month domain, which is annoying. Restart time. The good news is that my readers will likely find the new site easily enough. It struck me that about 9% of readers were from Germany, only a single hit from Austria that I know of by contrast, and most of the rest were in former communist countries like the Ukraine, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Russia, and the eastern half of asia. For a time, the most popular page was a no-nonsense history of socialism and the quarter billion people it killed last century by war, famine, purges, etc. as well as how the same ideas are common in political parties today, such as the 6 to 9 Planks of the Communist Manifesto now incorporated into several modern parties in Europe and the U.S.
    Not many readers in this country, maybe because I got blacklisted by the conservative media I used to write for (never write articles 6 months or more ahead of the curve by analyzing trends— “journalists” don’t like that.). The 600,000 bots were interesting, but they appear to have been webcrawlers like Google or Bing for the most part.

    @KZ71 First, you have to mess with them a little.

    Sooooooooo, you’re admitting you’re a thief on a major felony level?

    This is based off of, I believe, a true story of the horror one guy went through with Comcast. He recorded it, though. And he went through a lot more than Rat did. He published it on the web, it got a lot of publicity, Comcast ‘apologized’ for the way the retention person acted. But then it came out the retention person was actually TRAINED to do exactly what he did.

    It’s still floating around out there if you really wanna hear it, I’m sure.

    Where can you hire a ninja assassin? And does anyone else notice the extreme irony of someone going into a long winded rant about Communism in response to a comic strip about the aggravations in dealing with an unresponsive abusive corporation?

    Though it’s late, the holiday is still going on; so, Happy Hanukkah!
