Can AT&T really be this broken?

AT&T Store Sign

Can a company like AT&T really fail in this many ways for one customer on one product? When I first moved to Frisco in 2011, I decided to get Internet and Cable TV services, along with home phone service from (then) Time Warner Cable. It served me well until the Charter/Spectrum acquisition, when my rates jumped …

Taking the fight back to Rachel at Cardholder Services

Anyone whom has read this blog for some time knows that I have no love for the Robocalls from “Rachel at Cardholder Services” and similar ilk. Since I wrote the series on “Rachel” four years ago, some of the sources of calls faced charges by state Attorney Generals, and the resulting judgement against each was in the …

A ‘Broken’ America…

In fact, I had a story ready to post last Friday, but after the events involving the sniper attack on Dallas Police on Thursday, I decided to postpone it.

Police lives DO matter

It is troubling to have followed the reports last night of the “ambush” style attack on the Dallas, Texas Police Department and the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (“DART”) Police Department. First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers go out to the officers of both agencies and their families. This senseless actions of these few at …

Article V Proposal: Investigations

Today I’m outlining the first of two proposals I have for the Convention of States to Amend the Constitution.

Life happens…

I am posting it now, with revisions, as I really do want to start posting here more often] Happy Independence Day! In December 2012, I set out on a plan to start posting here more frequently. But …

Could Rachel at Cardholder Services game be over?

Open Casket with Hand holding Phone

It was one year ago today that I first blogged about “Rachel at Cardholder Services.” Little did I know that single post would morph into seven posts including today’s. As a professional in the telecommunications world, I had become acutely aware of Rachel based on the number of complaints I was getting from my clients. I …

Happy 2013!

As the year ends, my long overdue, and planned re-do of this site is now complete. What started out as a 4 month project, stretched into 11 months. Although there were changes made behind-the-scenes earlier in the year, I left the overall appearance the same. With tonight’s year-end activation of our new look, the transformation is complete. …

Do unto others…

I want to begin this post by extending condolences to all the families affected by the incidents I am writing about. In the wake of the incidents in Newtown, Connecticut and the mall in Clackamas, Oregon last week, there are many pundits calling for stronger gun laws. The fact is, the laws already in place were …
