I can see why people get so frustrated with these companies.
While I think he went a tad overboard, I understand how he feels.
I am working with Verizon at the moment and after recieving multiple calls on my bill each month that are titled, "incomming call unknown"
After which are minutes being used, and usually an unusual high amount of minutes.
Now I don't mind paying for the minutes I use, but when the company can't tell me who is calling me, and expects me to pay for calls that they can't tell who is calling me, thats when I call BS! Especially when they are telling me I owe an additional $150-2oo+
I do NOT answer calls that are not identified on my caller ID.
Now I am expected to pay for the calls or my service will be interupted!!??
These companies are corrupt and maybe when they drive someone that far over the edge and something like that happens, these things will be resolved.
Some folks are loose cannons, I'd worry if I were Alltel, they never know if or when this guy will plink them off as they walk out the door.
These companies think they can take advantage of people and nothing will ever happen.
There are crazy people out there, while I'm not one of them, I have met quite a few that would probably carry out something like that!
