Another POS fresh from the rectrum of Spectrum.

This one is TRULY sickening.

The pale, skinny, mousy faced know-it-all beotch treats her fat, dimwitted husband like something she stepped in then had to scrape off the bottom of her shoe.

First, she just decides on her own that they're switching to Spectrum without any input from el dork-o whatsoever.

Then, at one point, she snarks "Shouldn't you get ready for work...?" after which he hangs his head and slunks away like a whipped puppy.

Then she takes a superior attitude over not having a contract.



I think she's hot to trot for the young, stud cable boy and wants her fat dork husband to get the hell out of the house so she can give cable boy his "bonus".



Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

God, I've been looking for this one.  Angry

That woman?  I've never hit a woman but she comes a close second to the last woman I wanted to smack upside her noggin.






And!  I think the asshat husband works for one of the satellite companies.  That's just how Sharter Rectum operates.


I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

I have difficulty figuring out which one of those two disgust me the most.

Her for being such a bitchy little snot rag or him for being such a d'wimp (dork wimp).

I hope their TV gets fried by a massive power surge.

Right in the middle of "her show".

Thanks, Jimbo! Logged in for the first time in months planning just to complain about this offal. Tickled Spectrum (or would that be speculum?) pink that you started the thread.

Yep, not sure which is worse...whipped hubby or bug-eyed wifey who dry-humps the young cable guy at every turn.

Actually what is worst of all is the fact they air this stinker about every break in prime time. It took about 20 times though before I could understand what Whipped Hubby mumbles about Maple Street.

"Mood=Funny," according to iSpot. No, no it isn't. Not the first time and not after 325,678 airings.

Thanks!!!

Glad you liked my rant and were able to get your own rant out too!!

This place is cathartic that way, isn't it?

Hope you come around more often now!!!

Well, to his credit - at least he knows enough to be HIGHLY SKEPTICAL of any service Charter Spectrum claims to offer.

So it's $89.97 for ALL THREE and you can't get just one or two for $29.99 each because it all has to be bundled.  Why don't they just say it's 90 bucks for all three!

Are men wearing long sweaters now?  I thought it was a lab coat in the still shot.

Yeah, honey, get your ass outta here and get to work so I can watch my soaps all day for $29.99 a month!  LOL

This commercials pretty sh*tty!

The only way this ad could have been better is if he said "Elm Street" and they got a visit from Freddy Creugar after she fell asleep while she was watching "her show"
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

I've had enough with Spectrum, that I'd love for my cable to go out 'in the rain in the middle of my show'. Now my bill is almost $180/month, a $5 increase the past year. This apartment complex sucks you into two choices - Spectrum or rabbit ears. I keep griping about how I want out of Spectrum and switch to Dish. Not an option anymore unfortunately.
My apartment has now banned satellite dishes and my neighbors were forced to take them down. Downstairs they had Dish Network for at least 2 years. They can give you 30 days notice. This place sucks you into Charter Piece-of-Crap and doesn't let go...no other choice! We're considering going down to an antenna. 
EDIT: Also, notice the singing pirate ad from a couple years ago is playing on their TV screen?
Sick and tired of Charter Spectrum (and Flo!)

It is not legal for your apartment complex to ban the installation of satellite dishes so long as they comply with certain criteria.
 
 
If you decide to pursue this course and encounter any roadblocks, PM me and I'll help put you in touch with the Region-3 FCC Enforcement Bureau agents out of the Portland office.  Apartment complexes rarely "win", but it can sour the relationship and they will sometimes try to retaliate in other ways.   If so, that too may be illegal in your area.  Might be time to set them up and try to cash in?
 
I'd be tempted.
Good luck.

Or, you could go with the fruity, nanobrew, just below the leather belt, chocolate fag.

Not that there's anything wrong with that!

She'll divorce him now that she doesn't have to sleep with him to get free cable, since something "better" came along...

Add me to the ranks of this growing list of whoever loathes this poor excuse for a cable ad. At least this gives new meaning to "competition's paying the price", if nothing else.
One call... destroys 'em all!
