Well Greg, I think that that is a mingy attitude. It's so pessimistic 
that I expect to shortly hear that you have entered a monastery and 
abjured all electronic gizmos.

Get real. It might take a little work, but the cable co will actually 
worry if a customer has a problem.
Especially if the President gets mail addressed to him at home because 
the customer cannot get any satisfaction.
Even more special, if the letter is hand delivered to the President's 
home...If I were really really pissed at customer service from Rogers 
Cable, I know where Ted Rogers lives...and I think I could guarantee 
that he would raise hell down the ranks if some 'we don't care. we don't 
have to' service rep were named and shamed.


And speaking of pessimists, etc.

A pessimist thinks that the glass is half empty.

An optimist thinks that the glass is half full.


And engineer thinks that the glass was over-specified and over-built.
