Transcript Of Call
COMCAST REP: Hi, Comcast how can I help you?
CUSTOMER: Hi, yes, I am a Comcast customer and I think there was an error on my bill this month, you guys charged me for cable TV AND internet but I only signed up for internet.
COMCAST REP: OK great I can help you with that. So you would like to add TV to your account then?
CUSTOMER: No, no I just want internet. When I moved in I called and told you guys I just wanted internet but now there is still a charge for TV on my bill.
COMCAST REP: Yeah, well it looks like a cancellation was queued but did not go through so you had TV last month and that was a valid charge.
CUSTOMER: How is that a valid charge? I didn’t even watch TV last month because I was unaware I had it.
COMCAST REP: Well sir, [anguished sound] even if you don’t watch TV you still have it.
CUSTOMER: Right, but I told you I didn’t want it. I think the difference is $30 so I’d like that refunded.
COMCAST REP: We can do that for you OH GOD [anguished sound] my head.
CUSTOMER: Are you ok?
COMCAST REP: Yeah, sorry. What I can do it count that $30 as a credit toward another month of television.
CUSTOMER: I don’t want television.
COMCAST REP: Ohhhkayyy, not a problem [weird pain sound] Have you tried our Xfinity Triple play option?
CUSTOMER: No, I just told you I don’t want television. I would just like the $30.
COMCAST REP: Ok, well if that’s what you want then let me try to… OH GOD… I can’t do that.
CUSTOMER: What is going on there?
COMCAST REP: My nose started bleeding. [deep breath] Sorry sir, we were talking about our Xfinity Digital Television starter plan!
CUSTOMER: No we weren’t…. We were talking about giving me a refund…
COMCAST REP: That’s not possible sir, the chip does not authorize me to do that.
CUSTOMER: The chip?
COMCAST REP: Yes sir, the chip implanted in my brain that allows me to give you the best possible customer service [painful scream] IT HURTS. Sorry, I was not authorized to tell you about that… So when can a technician come out to install your new cable box sir?
CUSTOMER: I don’t want a cable box, I just want internet. I don’t understand, are you ok?
COMCAST REP: NO!! Yes! NO! YES IT IS BURNING MY SKULL!! [Scream] Can I put you on hold?

COMCAST SUPERVISOR: Hello. Sorry about that sir. I think you may have misunderstood a few things. Don’t worry about what happened here and if you never mention it to anyone I give you a free internet upgrade to our highest speed broadband and I can let you know you have been approved for free HBOGO for two months. Is that acceptable.
COMCAST SUPERVISOR: Great. Thank you for choosing Comcast.
CUSTOMER: Thank you.
