Cell phone ---- cable --- internet. We could do a whole thread on Comcast alone.
Oh gosh yes... I remember moving to Ga from NJ and getting my first cell phone. I thought I was so cool. But then we paid per minute to use the thing, so we carried around this brick but never called anybody! I once dumped a guy that I was dating because he used my landline to call long distance to Michigan and did not tell me. I got the phone bill and disconnected that relationship!Based on your answers above you may remember similar circumstances to mine. When people complain about cell phone bills I have to kind of laugh to myself. I can remember as a kid my mom setting a timer when she called her mom because she could only afford 20 minutes in long distance charges. And her mom was on a party line so you never knew when a neighbor would pick up and listen in or join the conversation. A lot of young people don't understand how much long distance used to cost. In the early 90s when my in-laws moved out of state my landline phone bill would be over $200 a month because my wife talked to her mom several times a week and if I remember correctly we had to pay something like 20cents a minute. Now I don't think we pay that much per minute for my wife to talk to her sister in Germany. Now the $50 cell bill includes unlimited long distance and may even include unlimited data.
"fixing" stuff that ain't broken. My wife has a mini cooper. Using the turn signals, if you depress it a little way it blinks for a short time. If you depress it all the way it doesn't stop unless you complete a 90 degree turn. Sooo may times, I change lanes on the freeway and the stupid thing won't stop blinking. Was the blinker something that really needed improvement? Also, I freakin' hate that I have to press the unlock button twice to unlock the passenger doors. Really? Are that many people being chased by homicidal maniacs that only opening the driver door is a worthwhile safety feature?
