Himself with me "on hold"!

Himself has been harping at me to get rid of channels on the TV-
It seemed like a good idea to me--I could already see dollar signs going down!

There are very few programs that I watch----
I surmised it might be a problem with himself, being a tennis fanatic and a lover of boxing.
However, he passed me his very long list of desired channels---
"You make sure they (the TV. company)---keep these ", he announced---"These are all sports channels".

I called the television company one morning.
Have you ever telephoned these people?
After being on hold, for as long as 45 minutes, a Lady talked me into what I thought would be a great bundle of channels for us---with the addition of a few extra sports channels.
The savings was pretty good---almost $100-

The next time we turned on our TV----Himself began to rant--and rave---
"I don't have my French Sports---There is this channel and that channel missing----"

The next day I called the cable company--After 672 minutes of waiting "on hold", I heard
that for an additional $3.99 she would add a new package on---
"Fine", I said-----We will still be paying less than before.

The next day, Himself found that his TSN stations were not included---
And so..........Well--- you can guess what I went through AGAIN-----and AGAIN-----and every time, --"for an additional charge" , of course they will add the additional package on---

We are now up to just about where we were before---

Our bill will be nearly the same---
I've decided , I shouldn't even attempt to fight the cable company-----

Next time Himself has a "brainy " idea--such as this-----perhaps -he should be the one to get it in place!
--not me being the one sitting "on hold" for what seems like 799 minutes -----
--Ahhhhhh--the joys of marriage!
