Charter, the Company EVERYONE LOVES TO HATE

I’m a veteran with full disability.  That means I get paid at very specific and unchanging times.  Charter lives in its own little world.

I overpay bills.  This is a way of saving in two ways.  You can get your money back (and if, like our garbage service, you get no bills, you know you’re not overdue, and that’s the only way; no bill if you owe nothing, morons).  You can also not pay a bill or bills for a month (or longer).  And finally you don’t feel too sweaty generally, so to speak.  It also takes some extra money.

I went back to Charter reluctantly recently.  Charter if anyone doesn’t know is an ISP, cable only, which means it now offers all three services; internet, tv, phone.

I did that last month.  On the 21st, I suspect.  And today (having paid $200 verifiably, no snail mail, not even a credit card–a transfer FROM MY BANK so no possible balls could be dropped (guess how I pay my bills).  They got paid on the 4th and when I signed up for internet access to my account the paper bill was correct, I was overdue.  Five business days, and on the 5th (while I was talking to an agent, no less; no I have no suspicions whatsoever, being that gullible kinda guy)…it posted while I  was looking at it.  (Overemphasizing portions of blogs (using a lot of underlining and boldface and so forth) is a very bad thing to do so I have refrained here.  The reason it’s a bad habit is simple; you’ve made too many points of distraction (or emphasis, if you prefer).)

To top the matter off they were going to charge me overdue fees because I don’t get paid until the first of the month and they want to get paid on the 21st, starting this month–so a double (unanticipated) bill in the midst of a month with extra expenses.

God, I hate Charter.  Nice to be back with someone to revile on a daily basis.  I may just start calling them up and telling them I hate them when I’m having a bad day.

Wow, a function of the internet we’ve all missed.  We can just pick someone randomly and blame them for everything.  Oops, it’s already happening.
