    Yeah that was pretty much our experience. We'd talk to our account manager who would "fix" it, but then we'd get the next month's bills and it wouldn't be fixed. Rinse, repeat. Then the account manager would change and we'd have to start all over again.

    What was hilarious was our company got a new CFO during that time who seemed to assume the problem was with our own staff not being diligent or persistent in dealing with AT&T. "I want you to call AT&T and have this resolved today." Um, we've been calling them repeatedly for years. You have know idea who you're dealing with here. "Well I'll deal with it then, we'll have legal send them a letter demanding they correct the billing immediately." A year later that CFO was long gone, data centers were all shut down and AT&T was still billing us for usage on lines we no longer used. Around the time I left that was finally getting cleaned up.

    This is *absolutely* hilarious. I love when the new big-shot comes in and bloviates about how he's gonna GET THINGS DONE.

    Sweet - *you* deal with them, Mr. Bigshot. One less irritating pile of shit on *my* plate.

    New subie wilderness arrived 6 weeks early. No biggie or too annoying, just wasn’t really ready for that. Trying to decide whether or not to trade in the 14 forester or sell it privately. Did Seano ever say what happened with the damage subie that he ordered?

    My neighbor is desperate for a car for his daughter and I know he’d pay a reasonable price for it, but it may still be out of her budget. It’s a 14 XT with 91k miles. Oh well first world problems.

    One of my coworkers totaled her Outback a couple of weeks ago and that sounds about what year and mileage she would be looking for (she’s a college student) pm me if you do think of selling it

    Will do - I have to come over there to pick up the new ob. The sales guys at the IF dealership annoy me.

    I think there’s just one deal, and that’s it.

    The fact that you went through those threads and passive aggressively quoted them here is pretty annoying

    I got a notification from Uber asking if I wanted an Uber for my flight to Reno Sunday. I don't have a flight to Reno. My son does. Seems like Uber has access to my Google calendar--where it says "flight to Reno" but not who's taking it. Fuck Uber.

    Of course... you likely granted it those privileges when you installed the app.

    (acoustic version)

    Acoustic covers have always annoyed me, namely when it's a bad cover of an already bad pop song. Anyone else?

    When it comes to tech companies I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but wow, that's really messed up.

    Yes many times over. Even a good band doing an acoustic of their own song.

    Meh, I'm back and forth. (If you're a foo fighters fan..) have you heard the Everlong acoustic from Stern years ago?

    Good stuff IMO

    For a while some radio stations here seemed to be playing dance mixes of already annoying/overplayed songs. I'd take an acoustic version over that any day.
