How do you pay a bill for 40yrs and not know what you are paying for? The funny thing was that the phones have been working all of that time. I guess the Co. should have given her a call and talked her out of the lease.

Honestly, it's one of those things where you can't be too pissed. I'm sure a lot of us are paying for stuff that we probably shouldn't be.

My mother in law just found out that she was paying aol $29/month for over 6 years for her son's old email account. If you never call them, it never gets cancelled.

I think the lady could buy a standard phone for $9.95. I'm sure you can buy a classic rotary somewhere.

OK, I just ordered two of those, and I'm drafting a letter to Ms. Strogen offering her a 30 year lease at $20/month. I figure I have to cut her a discount over what she was paying before...

Re: The Ultimate Ripoff
 
do you think the kids of today even know how to use that thing?

Re: The Ultimate Ripoff
 
i'm gonna say no...only reason I know is because my grandparents had one and I had used it growing up...but i can imagine people slightly younger than I am not knowing how to use the old rotary.

I talk her into the new high tech. push button phones (you know the ones you by at Wall Wart for 9.99) and gave her a deal with the up grade. Its a twenty year lease for 39.99. I sold her the extended warranty for 5.99 with a ten dollar deductable and she pays shipping and handling. The funny part of the story was there are now 749,999 people with these old contracts. If I could only get a copy of that list.
