Wow look time warner can charge customer's more money and give them less service when you have a problem. I have been dropping my internet for the past 3 day's and time warner scheduled a service call for monday. The best part is my neighbor was having problem's and time warner was there Saturday and the guy was working on the same tap my line is on and told me he could not check my line because I am scheduled for monday.

So would you be upset on Monday if they said "sorry we can't come to your house because Bob's neighbor was having problems with their cable?"

By the same token that would be like going in to get your teeth cleaned and finding out you have a cavity and then getting mad because they cannot fix it right then and now. I mean you are already in the office right? Its called appointments sir thats why you make them.
