Every month I just look at my local (Bell Atlantic) phone bill and shake my head. I’ve signed up for the ‘low-use’ option, for which the discount rate is $9.72/month.
Not bad, you say. But the actual charges come to $17.33. How can a $9.72 rate have an 80% mark-up? There are nine additional charges tacked on.
And no, I don’t have any options like call forwarding, call waiting, caller ID, video phone, etc…
For that mark-up, I want a phone that reaches out and fondles me or something.
Just had to vent.
