Why does "Customer Service" have to be an oxymoron? And why does it take 15 minutes and your life history to answer a simple question???!!!!!!!

Customer Service - (with VERY heavy Indian accent) Thank you for calling Dish Network, my name is "Tiffany", how can I help you?
Me - I'm looking at your internet plans on your web page, can you tell me what "bonus data" is?
"Tiffany" - The High Speed Specialist will be able to answer your question. Have you ever had Dish Network before?
Me - Yes, I currently have satellite TV with you
"Tiffany" - Can I please have your address and phone number?
Me - I don't need any of that, I just want to know what "bonus data" is.
"Tiffany" - The High Speed Specialist will be able to answer your question but we need your address and telephone so we know what services are available in your area.
Me - *sigh* OK, my address and phone number are XXXXXXXXXXX
"Tiffany" - Thank you very much. We have data plans starting at $29.95 per month with download speeds up to 10mmbs.
Me - Yes, I can see that, I just need to know what "bonus data" is
"Tiffany" - The High Speed Specialist can answer your question
Me - Can you connect me to this High Speed Specialist?
"Tiffany" - Yes, just one moment please.

High Speed Specialist - Thank you for calling Dish Network, my name is Sal, how can I help you?
Me - Yes, I would like to know what "bonus data" is.
High Speed Specialist - Who am I speaking to?
Me - Mike
High Speed Specialist - Do you live at XXXXXXXXXX?
Me - Yes, that is the address I just gave to "Tiffany". Look, I just want to know what "bonus data" is.
High Speed Specialist - "Bonus Data" applies to downloads between 2am and 8am.
Me - Thank you

"They did say their code of conduct prohibits students from playing with invisible guns"
I wonder if they have outlawed imaginary friends too?

I'm tired of marketing that tells people that they deserve whatever the want, and that they're the most important thing. It's created a culture of whiny, aggressive, selfish jerks. People who think nothing of stealing if they can get away with it, and people who put their needs before everyone else's.

I did advertising and marketing for many years, and this is one reason why I quit.

I'm tired of the lie that organic food is better for the environment. If you will recall, this all started about 10 years ago as Hollywood elitism. And it continues as such today - they even have special colored plastic bags prominently marked ORGANIC for you to put your organic produce in. That way you can show off to the other people in the checkout line ~ "Look at me, I'm better than you because I pay way too much for organic foods. And I sleep better at night because marketing has convinced me that I am doing a good thing."

Part of the problem is that when you pay premium price for food, you want it to be perfect without bugholes and blemishes. So they cut off and discard much of the food. That way we can protect the environment for the children and grandchildren of people in this world who will starve to death before they are old enough to reproduce.

Here's a dirty little secret about organic farming. During the summer in the farming community where I live, they cover the fields with miles of petroleum-produced plastic to "naturally cook" the bugs and weeds. In the fall, they pull off the plastic and plant your organic greens. What do you think happens to all those truckloads of discarded plastic? Straight to the landfill.

This pile of plastic is about 20 feet wide, 200 feet long and 4 feet deep. It was used to cover 100 acres of organic cropland

Another organic farming technique is to create a non-organic buffer around your organic field. Then poison the bejesus out of the buffer so that nothing can survive the trip across the buffer to your precious organic $6 a pound heirloom kale. Makes sense to me!

On Penn and Teller's TV show Bull*&#$!, they say that organic food is bull*&#$.

YouTube: Penn & Teller - Bull*%#$ (Organic food)

Warning: The show Bull*&#$ has explicit language.

And in the spirit of democracy, here is an opposing view to Penn & Tellers Bull*&#$!

GreenBlog: Penn & Teller's expert is paid by Monsanto

Silly hippies!

I think organic is stupid. How many people have gardens? I do and I never use chemicals, but is it organic? No. Why? Because there are rules and regulations that are in place to tell you that you are not organic unless you jump through their hoops.

I will take the veggies I grow over organic anyday
