Nothing Worse


Term used to loosely…

The other day I was on hold with Sprint for about 40 minutes or so. I ordered two new phones, and they came with trackers that I didn’t want. I only agreed to try them out because I would receive free shipping with my new phones, and I could return them within 30 days free of charge. But to my surprise, I had to go through a whole freakin ordeal to get these darn trackers off of my bill.

So while I was waiting for customer service to delete my charges, I was entertained with their sad, pitiful music as well as the same sale pitch playing over and over again.

Sales Pitch: It went something like this…

Have you ever dropped your phone and cracked your screen? There is nothing worse than that but lucky for you we can take care of that. All you need is blah blah blah.

The only thing that I caught in this lousy sales pitch was “there is nothing worse than that.” By “that,” they mean a cracked screen. Now mind you, I was already in a pissed off mood because I was being billed for something that I wasn’t supposed to be billed for, and now I have to hear this mess.

I couldn’t help but think that they should replace that statement, so I decided to write and call cooperate to give them my input. I probably will get the typical “that’s a good point” and then dismiss me altogether. But at least I tried.

Have we become that soft?

A cracked screen is the worse thing that can happen to you. Who gives a shit… get it fixed, replace it with a cheaper, less expensive model, or how about getting a protective screen. They can cost as little as 5 bucks. But don’t sit there and moan and groan over a cracked screen.

There is a monstrous amount of “worse” things that can happen to you.

A cracked screen… I think not!

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  1. I hate being stuck on one of those customer service helplines. Customer service, right. I think any sort of help these big companies gave their customers stopped with Covid-19′

    1. I totally agree! It’s so ridiculous to have to wait an hour to get a problem solved and especially a problem that they created to get more money out of a LONG time customer. Freakin jerks.
