Why do cable companies raise their rates so much?

Is there someone at dog food factories that actually have to taste test the products or do they just make a guess based on what all is in it?

Because if you add salt and vinegar to a cucumber and let it sit for awhile it no longer taste anything like a cucumber.. And my dog just gave me a please don't make me eat this face and the bag says great meaty taste..

There is a real life job called Dog Food Tester...they do taste it!

I have a fork and I have a spoon. Which one should I use to cut the wires of a bomb inside my friend's eye?

....Follow up question which wire should I cut? The grayish gray wire or the GRAY grey wire?

Neither, use the spoon to remove his eyeball and then you don't have to cut anything!   Smiley Tongue

 

You can use the fork if you want to try eyeball soup.

OMG did your bill JUST go up?  I just got my bill and it went up another 3 bucks, I found the cause.  Its an increas in the fee(tax) they collect for the government.  I called to ask about it and the lady on the phone told me it was to "cover increased costs from the Affordable Care Act".....i get the sneaky suspicion they are just using it as an excuse to collect more fees.

Yep. Second month in a row. Last month it was up to $113, this month it's up to $131. As for what the woman said, that's bull and a lame excuse to raise your bill.

 

They basically raised it up to $79 for cable and up to $44 for the internet (which should be up to 18mbps, just checked it recently and that's how much they were charging for it now... so if they're charging that much for my 12mbps internet, I'll be very angry).

Dang. That's insane. O_O

 

Finally got a hold of the cable company and they're working on lowering the price. So one bit of good news.

 

Have you tried talking to your cable provider to see if they can works something out in that regard (other than the person who said it was due to health care act)?
