Customer Takes Out Full-Page Ad to Slam Time Warner Cable

May 27, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Cable companies are used to being ripped by customers, but one of them took it a step further by taking out a full-page ad in the New York Press to blast Time Warner Cable for shoddy service, reports Business Insider.

In a message to the company, comic Eugene Mirman complains about mistreatment by the cable company, saying he was never informed of a changed date for a cable, internet and phone service installation.

Mirman wrote: "On May 4th I called you and got an automated message saying my appointment was moved to May 10th, but spoke to two representatives who assured me it was still on May 4th. Twenty minutes later, I got a call saying the technician called and couldn’t reach me and my new appointment would be on May 12th. An hour later I got a call apologizing and saying my appointment was moved to May 6th. Why does your company act like a controlling, abusive husband on an episode of ‘Law and Order’?"

Time Warner has yet to respond to Mirman’s missive, which–by the way–was a great way for the comedian to promote his career.
