Plenty Of People Hate The Phone Company, But This Is A Bit Much
from the yeow dept
There are plenty of horror stories about poor customer service from cable companies and telcos, but thanks to the low level of competition in the market, customers typically don't have much recourse. Some localities are trying to change things, but there's always a more extreme option consumers can take, like, say running out of the house naked and threatening some AT&T techs with a shotgun, before going for a joyride in their truck and crashing it into a piece of construction equipment (via Broadband Reports). That's what an 19-year-old guy in Ohio did, and for his trouble he's been charged with aggravated robbery and is being held in a medical facility for (presumably psychiatric) evaluation. No word, though, if they AT&T techs got his U-Verse service working.
