Cignal Satellite TV really sucked. The slightest drizzle of rain knocked the signal right out, and so no TV until it stops raining. So when I moved, I decided I would switch to Sky Cable. I’ve never dealt with them before, but knowing it’s run by Filipinos, I fully expected all the typical lame brain idiot stupidity that you can always count on from a Filipino. So sticking with my general rule to keep all my expectations at subterranean low levels for success, I signed up for Sky Cable TV and Internet.
So a week after install, right off the bat, the stupidity begins (as fully expected). My address is wrong on the billing. Certainly wasn’t my error, why would I put some unknown address on the application? A 3rd grader could copy the address off my application when inputting it into the billing system. But not Filipinos! Their brainless stupidity reaches bottomless depths. But hey, I’m an understanding guy, who knows what could have happened to create this error. No big deal, I simply call central hotline and tell them to correct the error and put in my proper address.
SILLY OF ME TO EXPECT SOMETHING SO SIMPLE!
DUMBFUCK FILIPINO SKY CABLE EMPLOYEE: “Impossible sir, you will need to go to your local Sky Cable office to have the error fixed.”
CUSTOMER WITH AT LEAST HALF A BRAIN (ME): “Well, can’t you just call them and tell them to correct YOUR error?”
DUMBFUCK FILIPINO SKY CABLE EMPLOYEE: “Sorry sir, the Sky Cable customer service is walk-in only”
CUSTOMER WITH AT LEAST HALF A BRAIN (ME): “UUHHHH FUCKIN’ WHY???? THAT’S PRETTY FUCKIN’ STUPID DON’T YOU THINK? Have you any clue about customer convenience? ESPECIALLY when YOU FUCK UP? You’re going to make ME have to go out into traffic full of ignorance shit-for-brains drivers to simply correct my address that YOU fucked up in the first place???? Why are you idiots so incredibly stupid??”
DUMBFUCK FILIPINO SKY CABLE EMPLOYEE: “Sorry sir, it’s policy”
CUSTOMER WITH AT LEAST HALF A BRAIN (ME): “Oh, well that makes me feel a WHOLE LOT BETTER………..NOT!! Your policy is a policy of not being accountable for your errors, and making your customers have to fix your errors, right?”
DUMBFUCK FILIPINO SKY CABLE EMPLOYEE: “No sir, that’s just the way it is.”
CUSTOMER WITH AT LEAST HALF A BRAIN (ME): “Well, I have one thing to say to you. If you want me to pay my bill, then you need to get the bill to me, and if YOU put a different address on the billing than I put on my application, then that’s YOUR fault, and YOU should correct it. If I don’t receive a bill, you will not get paid. I will not go to your office of idiots to correct your mistake. If you want to keep me as a customer, then you will find a way to fix your own fucking mistake. No bill, no payment, simple as that. Now, here’s my correct address (I dictate my address). The rest is now up to you dipshit. You want my payment? You now know where to send the bill. Fix it.
DUMBFUCK FILIPINO SKY CABLE EMPLOYEE: “But sir,
CUSTOMER WITH AT LEAST HALF A BRAIN (ME): I believe this is Sky Cable, is it not?
DUMBFUCK FILIPINO SKY CABLE EMPLOYEE: Yes sir, but this is the customer service hotline.
CUSTOMER WITH AT LEAST HALF A BRAIN (ME):
HANG UP PHONE
This is so very typical of just about any service in Philippines. You will get this kind of utter stupidity with everything.
No wonder Philippines is such a poor country. They are WAY TOO STUPID to get anything right. It’s not poor due to corruption, it’s poor due to stupidity. They are too stupid to be honest, they are too stupid to be accountable, they are too stupid to stand up for what’s right.
Last night, about 50% of the channels had no schedule of programs. “No Schedule” is all you saw when trying to find something to watch. So I called to bitch at them.
Of course all I got was a lame fuckin’ excuse that they manually input the schedules, and the person in Manila hadn’t sent the schedule or some stupid bullshit like that. So of course,
“I’m paying for this service, I don’t want lame excuses. Someone didn’t do their fucking job, now give me what I’m paying for or cancel my contract. Get the fucking schedule up, and keep it updated without some stupid fucking blame game and lame excuses.
Filipinos are such fucking idiots, it’s mind-blowing just how unbelievably stupid these imbeciles are.
