To Xfinity and Beyond! – An Open Letter to Comcast

Dear Comcast,

I know you probably experience this all the time, but I rarely do this.


You should really consider yourself special.  After I breakup with someone it’s over.  Permanently…just like Keyser Soze, you don’t exist.  Especially if the relationship was as tumultuous as ours.

We were together for over 10 years and when I needed you to take my side, to stand by me, to defend me, to put your people in their place  – you let me down.  You treated me like you didn’t know me and for that reason, I left.

Yeah that’s right, I left.  I left you and your OnDemand, PowerBoost Internet and joined The Slowskys.  It wasn’t so bad, in fact it allowed me to enhance my time management skills.

Fewer channels and bad high-def taught me to appreciate the programs I truly enjoyed and provided me the opportunity to visually recognize a broadcast in “Good-HD”.

So let me stroke your ego just a little bit more.  You are bigger, faster, stronger, but the people you surround yourself with treated those close to you like crap and you did nothing about it.

I don’t know if you were going through some type of identity crisis, hence the name change, Xfinity, but we all go through shit.

However, most of us stay loyal until pushed away.  It’s been 3 years since we were last together.  I walked away.  By the way that it looks, you miss me.  You’ve been courting me ever since.

Like I said, I rarely do this.  I don’t give second chances, because I give everything I got – Win, Lose or Draw.

Then just when I was least expecting it, you send out your best wingman.  You tell me.  How long do you think it takes to convince a woman scorned that Prince Charming isn’t an ass?  Speaking as a woman scorned, many minutes.

Well Comcast Xfinity, you’ve got your second chance.  Go for it!  We broke up over Triple Play.

I’m pretty sure others have broken up over less.

Don’t get me wrong, because I’m not complaining, but since you’ve got my house on lock will you please, please please, make sure that all systems are go.

There’s nothing worse than turning on the television expecting to see “Good HD” , willing to settle for “Bad HD” only to have no TV service whatsoever.

We’re only 3 days in and my husband has had to watch Netflix on his phone.  That is not what I meant by To Xfinity and Beyond.


I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)

    I love this! We left them and came back and now I’ve become too dependent on them so I don’t know if I can break up again *sob*.

      Thank you. Since we've been back together for 3 weeks now and I've had to call them a few time because the cable was out (updates) yeah right. Unfortunately, I think I'm with them for the long haul now. I had them install Xfinity Home – the works! :/
