I've applied for a waiver of this thoroughly incomprehensible and...on a certain intrinsic level...downright insulting bit of company policy. The very nice customer service rep with whom I spoke said that waiver applications are rare and approvals are even more rare. Too smeggin' bad. If Cingular doesn't approve my very reasonable request of a waiver they're going to hear from me on a daily basis. I will weasel some special number out of a harangued and beaten customer rep and I will call it Every.Day. until some piece of ragged corporate slime relents and/or ends up waking up in tears after dreaming of yet another call from me. *rubs hands together in anticipation of license for relentlessness*
Part of me wants them to deny my oh-so-reasonable-and-justified request just so that I can fight it. Just thinking about it makes a wee amount of adrenaline surge and my breath quicken."
