Adventures on home security...

I get a bill from ADT for a service call last week. "Hell no, I already paid for this, I'm not paying twice!" says I. So I call them. Beep through their phone system until I get a person on the line. "Ignore the charge, the technician must not have filed it yet." says she.

Then I ask, "So when does my contract expire?"

"Let me check... July 18th, 2004."

(looks at the calender) "You mean yesterday?"

"Yes, July 18th."

"So I'm not under contract now?"

"No, now you're month to month."

"So when were you planning on telling me?"

After some hemming and hawing, she finally says, "We don't tell you when you go month to month."


Needless to say, tomorrow I will be talking to my boss about the local folks he and his wife use at their home.
