I received my cable bill and my Dallas Morning News(DAM) bill in the mail today...Still shocked that they charge $52.01 for the crappy cable. But the biggest shock was my DAM News bill went up from $20 to $42. I immediately called and when I finally got through to an agent, I said I bet you wish you had another job today. He said 'yes, I do.'...So I says to the lucky young chap:"What the fuck?"....with out any notice they upped my subscription from $20 to $42?...and he says to nasty old lady:"Yes, sir, they were supposed to send out a letter and tell everyone about the changes, but they didn't."...nasty old lady to lucky young chap:"don't piss me off more by calling me sir, it's mam', and you're going to have to cancel my subscription, when it expires on May4th. Then he tried to say I could get a 30 percent or something discount...which is still $30 something...said nope...can't afford it...at $20 it was a luxury I afforded myself because I love the paper so much and have subscribed since 1978. Then he tried to sell me the 4 days a week deal..which is Thursday thru Sunday..Said nope..I either get it all...or I don't get it..and I'm on a fixed income and can't afford $42 a month for a paper. It breaks my heart and I am going to be totally lost without it..but thems the breaks..so as of May 3rd...no more paper. I'd get the Waco paper, but it's so crappy even puppies won't piss on it..I can't even begin to tell you how much I'm going to miss it...I know I can get my news on the Internet and can go to DAM News and get it..but it's not and never ever will be the same. I will miss the ritual of opening up the paper, and seeing what the idiots of the world have been up to, what asshole Jerry Jones has signed up for the Cowboys, what my favorite comic characters have been up to. Oh shit...my cross words....I do 3 of them every day...what the fuck?...I'm done..fork me...I can't believe I'm crying over a stupid fucking paper...fuckity fuck fuck fuck!
