Catch All Post

Haven' t posted much lately - I've been recovering from a mini-vacation up in Los Angeles with some close friends over the last week.

I'll be going into more detail with the next post - including photos - of our trip to Disneyland and to Hollywood Blvd (my first time there).

We Are AOL - You Will Be Assimilated

Every-so-often I have episodes like Vincent has had, but this takes the cake:

AOL virtually refuses to cancel man's account

One man's attempt to cancel his America Online account is reverberating across the U.S. and world after the customer recorded the conversation and then posted it on his blog.

Vincent Ferrari tried to end his membership with AOL, but dealt with a company representative who apparently did not want to lose his business.

Read the whole thing - it is quite honestly something you'd see in a Monty Python comedy sketch. It's almost like being assimilated by the Borg.

It makes me glad that I never, ever signed up for AOL.

To be honest, I did sign up for Compuserve years ago, but when they sucked $100+ out of my checking account because the connection number was an older 800 number that charged me basically $1 per minute, I learned to stay away from big companies like them.

And I only recently got away from dial-up service with my credit union.

About Me

Who is Mikey?
Mikey playing with digital camera

Mikey is a forty-something U.S. Navy veteran that is currently taking a break from being a full-time student at UC San Diego studying electrical engineering.

He's also a husband, a father, a former Independent/Democrat and is currently dealing with dialysis and getting on the national kidney transplant list.

The words written here are his opinions and his observations on the stupid things in life. If you do not like them or do not agree with them: tough squishies. In America, you're entitled to Freedom of Speech not Freedom to Not Be Offended.

Help Mikey by not being part of the problem and instead, be part of the solution so that he doesn't have to comment on your sorry actions.
