Some of you who have been following my blog know that after I challenged the Huffington Post Troll my hotmail address was attacked by hackers, according to MSN, and that my Comcast internet and phone service went down.
I don't think the Troll had anything to do with this, but the technology gods certainly didn't look favorably upon me.
So the first time Comcast was going to show up, they didn't. Because they said they called and I didn't answer. The reason was simple, my VOIP service was also down. The second time they did show up and fixed the internet, but after they had left I discovered that my Comcast cable television had stopped working.
So another visit had to be scheduled. And as anyone of you may know, it takes 15 minutes just to get to a live person at Comcast, so with all my calling I literally spent hours dealing with Comcast.
Now some subscribers with similar experiences are taking their revenge.
Below is first a video of a Comcast technician who fell asleep (!) while waiting to get through on the phone to Comcast, and second is a simply incredible video of an AOL subscriber who tried to cancel his subscription. Anyone who has ever dealt with these companies will recognize themselves.

AOL won't take cancel for an answer:
