“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about, websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time. Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” This is subject to change, however. In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while. For rants promote change, and change can be good—right? Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).
No, this is not some paid promotion for [Mediacom]. In fact, it is just the opposite of that, and I am doing it out of the wrath that my heart is now pumping through my veins.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I have been running my mouth off pretty good since I snuck in the backdoor of this cyberspace scene around four years ago about our Heavenly Father being in FULL control of ALL that happens, and that it is ALL for our ultimate good. Well, that doesn’t mean that I have to be happy about it ALL of the time. “After all, why do think it is called suffering?” Yeah, that was a quote/unquote from He Himself.
Still, I have reserved the right to not be all that happy on occasion, which He is putting up with. That is, as long as I don’t take it too far, of course, and when it comes to Mediacom, methinks this is one of those situations where we are supposed to stand up and speak out.
No, I cannot proclaim, “Thus saith the Lord,” about anything about Mediacom, but it certainly makes sense to me that something should be said. For how can a company that is headquartered in [New York City] really take care of their customers, when their closest customer is hundreds of miles away? If you have any questions, go check [this] out.
It is times like these when it is hard to defend the virtues of a capitalist society. For consumers are invariably treated like sheep for the consumption of corporate wolves, and the end of this world can’t come soon enough for me.
No, I don’t think I am being a little too dramatic. For our Internet service was down (for all intents and purposes) for another 12 hours yesterday, and this was after it was down for over 16 hours a few days earlier in the week.
Yes, I am all too painfully aware of the fact “stuff” happens, but Mediacom makes it rather hard to be understanding when there is no access to our local branch anymore. So, when someone like me (in Springfield, MO) calls to find out what is going on with my lack of service, the customer service representative in Tampa, FL (or someplace where the sun is shining, if the call is made after midnight) can only say that technicians are working as hard as they can to resolve the problem without having a clue as to what that problem may be—or if anyone is actually working on it, for that matter.
No, the local number to the Mediacom office here is Springfield no longer works. I am not sure, but I think they got rid of that right after the ice storm we had a couple of years ago.
Oh, and to add insult to injury, they air a commercial over the cable TV channels they provide about how wonderful Mediacom is in comparison to all of the alternatives every 4 minutes—24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK!!! Okay, it might not be that often, but it is A LOT!
No, we cannot just go somewhere else. For we have already tried satellite TV, and it generally sucks even worse than Mediacom.
When it comes to an alternative [ISP], [DSL] and [Wi-Fi] for our area isn’t much better than dial-up. For live in an older part of town, and all of the good things are happening down south, which is where the money is. Besides, [AT&T] was cut from the same corporate cloth as Mediacom.
So, am I just being a big baby, or do you have a horror story or two to add? I really hope you do. For my misery could sure use some company right now.
