Urban Eola

Screw you too, Verizon!

Urban Eola is not normally an angry, bitter, or pessimistic place. Actually it tends to be an upbeat blog that covers the positive, unique, and interesting aspects of life as seen through the eyes of an optimistic kid.

However, today Urban Eola is a pissed off website. I walked into the Perimeter Place Verizon Wireless store in Atlanta (this one located at 123 Perimeter Ctr W, Suite 100, Atlanta, GA. 30346. Phone # 770.399.9993) and asked for some cell phone assistance from some loser employee named Cameo. This guy treated me like I was a some kind of idiot who doesn't know what a cell phone is or how a frickin' contract works. Granted I'm not a straight-A student in law school, but I know that a contract involves some kind of bargain and consideration in exchange for a specific performance.

If I hadn't asked some detailed questions (which probabaly a majority of their customers don't) our good friend Cameo (work phone # 770.399.9993) was basically going to grab me by the balls and have me pick out a new cell phone, only to ask me to sign something which would say in very, very small, obscure print that as a result my contract was being extended for 2 years. No mention of that when I asked about getting a new phone. And for that he wanted $69.99. And that was the "good" deal. Sounds like a hell of a deal to me Verizon, you jackass of a company.

Has anyone ever walked into a cell phone store and been treated decent? Like a person with some sense? Why should they treat their loyal customers well? They already have me locked into a deal for 2 years. There's nothing I can do about it. I'm at Verizon's and some chump named Cameo's mercy. No leverage. No bargaining power. And going to another wireless carrier is more of the same.

I've been with Verizon for 6 years and I have been treated like a schmuck everytime I walked into that place. They really piss me off. Maybe dropping the cell phone plan altogether is the best option. Ted Turner doesn't have one. But admittedly in this day and age it would be a disadvantage (albeit a peaceful one) not to have a cell phone.

Does anyone have any thoughts on how bad cell phone companies blow? Here's some people that do - VerizonPathetic.com.

So screw you too, Verizon and your bozo employee, Cameo.

i can relate. almost all cell phone co employees are just uneducated kids that think they know everything, but can help you with nothing. not to mention how you usually have to take a number and wait 30 minutes before you find that out!
