I am sorry, but I have to share this with you all. On my way too and from work I listen to the radio. Mostly I listen to Preaching and sometimes I can deal with “Christian” Music. But when neither are interesting I will listen to the local rock station, especially if they are playing Pink Floyd, or something just as good. Otherwise I drive in silence.
Well I keep hearing this commercial for Time Warner’s Digital Phone Service and it cracks me up. Maybe you have heard it. It is a girl complaining about her current phone service and all the “fees” that come with the bill. The Time Warner salesman is talking to her about the low cost of their phone service and how they will take away all her fees. At one point she opens up her old phone bill and you hear all these little “fee” creatures screaming, “fee, fee, fee, fee, fee” with a whine. The TW rep says, don’t worry we’ll take care of those for you.
I know, I know, it does not sound that funny. You’re right, it is a down right retarded commercial… but that’s not why it is funny either. What is funny is the “fine print.” You know, the part where the radio voice talks really fast, hoping that you won’t notice.
They claim that you can get TW Digital Phone for as low as 29.95$ (which is only the introductory price). The funny part is right at the end of the commercial they have one of those speed talkers. During his little diatribe he says, “price does not include taxes and fees.”
Yes, that’s right… fees.
So… read the fine print!
I rest my case.
