It's Now A Fable With The Cable!

The cat got caught going out the other day as the cable company came around to each apt. bay. Yeah, I usually don't go to the door. Even if they hear me at my shore.

Who are you with, Sir?
Sir? Damn, I'm old.
Maybe it's my grey fur.
Or I just look bold.

Not with you.
I'm with the other guy.
You have no clue,
So away you can fly.

But I'll knock $50 off.
That has to be great.
For 3 months you won't scoff,
And get a great rate.

Yeah, then comes the hassle.
Then comes the strife.
Go back to your company castle,
If I wanted aggravation I'd get a wife.

Could get a great cable package as well.
All in one bundle for you.
All those channels sure are swell.
You'll stick to the TV like glue.

Pffft cable is a rip off in every way.
I'll take Netflix at my sea.
Bury cable in the litter tray.
Stick your bundled fee.

But you could try,
See if you're wrong.
I don't tell a lie.
Plus $50 off won't last long.

Got that right.
$50 will go to plus $100 overnight.
3 months later it'll be a plight.
Bill to a new height.

It won't go up much.
That isn't our way.
And you can keep in touch.
Listen to what we say.

Stick you bundle crap.
Stick your cable shit.
Go bother some sap,
Who actually believes it.

And there were my words for cable bundle selling nuts. Can go and sniff mutt butts. Still have cable at your sea? One big rip off to me. 80% of the crap you'll never watch or want to watch. Better off spending money on scotch. Hmm, that too may be a bad pass. So don't get drunk on cable near my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  2. I have a three in one package
    I think it needs to be re-packaged

    no movie channels came with the packet

  5. I have to have a landline phone because of work
    Which makes it better to bundle it all in one
    Phone never gets used by us
    But it rings all the time, which is not fun

  8. I used to work for the local cable company. We got all the channels for free. Plus internet! But when I quit I dropped it. Now my TV is used only for DVDs and old VHS tapes!

    1. Free is a perk any old day
      Otherwise costs way too much for a display

  10. Cable! Let me hack up a furr-ball.
    What do you do, stream? We're looking for an alternative because, per usual they've really jacked the price up.

    1. Yep, jacked up the price indeed
      Use Netflix at my feed

  11. If it was just me, it would be antenna and netflix and perhaps just antenna. I'm more of a reader. But my crew love their television. I pay about 160-180 a month on satellite for four tellies.

  22. They certainly zinged me
    With their climbing annual fee
    No bundles we said
    So they raised the price instead
    The new connection is better by far
    Than the previous internet czar
    So I'll live with the cost today
    To finally have decent internet at my bay

    1. Internet goes for the win
      That isn't a sin

  26. I can't tell a lie
    I still have cable...I can hear you sigh.
    It is too expensive, that's for sure.
    what would be my lure?
    Old movies, history and discovery for me
    TCM, the basics would make me happy as can be.
