Young Girl: What provider do you have for your TV?
Me: Time Warner.
YG: How long have you been with them?
Me: Twenty years (actually, it’s been longer, but I went by how long we’ve lived in our current home).
YG: Wow. How many televisions do you have?
YG: You have one DVR?
Me: No. Three.
YG: Three? How about your phone?
Me: Yes, and internet.
This is when I noticed the little sign on the table behind her: DirectTV.
YG: Would you be—
Me: No. I’m not switching providers. So forget it.
YG: May I ask why?
Me: I don’t want satellite TV.
YG: Because you think you’ll lose the signal during bad weather?
Me: Because I KNOW I’ll lose the signal during bad weather.
She tried to tell me their system is better now. I counter attacked that I didn’t believe her, since many restaurants have DirectTV and lose their signal during a storm. She said they probably have the old equipment.
Probably? Yeah, right. I walked away while she thanked me for my time. Sometimes I’m glad to be stubborn.
Did you watch any of the football games? Talk about stressful. So glad to see Seattle and Dallas gone! Yay for the Steelers!! But man, that was just tooooo close!
I’m hosting Sizzle and Sass on Facebook this week. If you’re there, please say hi! I could use the likes and comments. It gets kind of lonely at times.
So… How do you watch your TV? Do you think someone could sell you to change?
