Anyone else here have Cignal Satellite TV? Have you ever called them to report that your service is disrupted? Well, I’m sure you have, as it’s run by idiot Filipinos. Service interruptions are a regular thing with utilities here in Philippines.
That’s all fine and dandy, and if you’ve lived here for any significant amount of time, you expect it, and live with it. Not much you can do when incompetence is culture.
But here’s another mind-boggling Filipino utterly stupid and corrupt policy; If your service is disrupted, they ask you if you would like them to send out a technician. My answer is usually, “Why are you asking me? I am not qualified to diagnose YOUR problem with YOUR service which I AM PAYING FOR. For those absolute Filipino dumb fucks to ask ME if they should send out a technician is like a doctor asking me if he should prescribe me medicine for what’s ailing me. I simply tell them, “All I know is that the service I am paying for is non-functional, and I want it fixed, and whatever you have to do to get my service which I’m paying for fixed, do it. If you feel it requires a technician to visit, fine, let’s set up an appointment and get it done.”
But that’s not the the main point of this article. That is just the “pre-Filipino-stupidity” before the main stupidity.
“Ok Sirrrrrrr, we’ll send a technician, but you must pay 700p for us to come out there to fix the problem. It’s called a “Professional Fee” Sir”
“If your installers were professionals to begin with, THERE WOULDN’T BE A FAILURE you utter shit-for-brains! That’s not a “professional fee”, that’s a “fuck me in the ass fee”!
For anyone with the slightest measurable level of intelligence, I need not write any more. Because you are “WTF-ing” also.
But being that I’m so mind-boggled as to the COMPLETE ABSENCE OF LOGIC about this insane policy, I’ll continue for the sake of the dumb fuck native Filipino reader who just doesn’t get it.
Cignal TV is the one who came to my house and installed the system. I PAID THEM an installation fee, gladly. I PAY MY BILL MONTHLY for the service, gladly. What do I expect for the money I pay? I expect the service to work. I realize we don’t live in a perfect world, and technical problems arise, but THEIR TECHNICAL PROBLEMS ARE NOT MY PROBLEM. Especially when I’m paying monthly for their service!
But when their service fails, THEY WANT TO CHARGE ME EXTRA TO FIX IT?????
Just another DUMB FUCKING FILIPINO STUPIDITY! UNBE-FUCKING-LIEVABLE!
Needless to say, I told them to fix THEIR problem at no extra charge, or the only visit they’ll be making to my house is to uninstall their equipment. And then what do they say to that???
“There will then be an early termination fee Sirrrrrrrrrrrr”
I told them, “Fuck you, you won’t get another peso from me you senseless moron! You are in violation of COMMON-FUCKING-SENSE and I don’t owe you anything! You have 7 days to come get your dish and cable boxes out of my house. After that, it’ll be placed on the street outside my house.”Published in
