Reason #213 I hate TV..........

For the 4th month in a row I get a bill from DISH NETWORK read that again please..... DISH NETWORK Charging us for movies we did not order....not only "movies" ...but those kind of movies. ARG! We have done everything they have asked us to do...placed blocks...speak with 4 million people at customer service...We were even told when we called LAST MONTH that if you live in close proximity to another receiver it is possible to get them confused....and that was from their REP! I reminded them of that today and I was told that wasn't possible. They told me the date and time the movie was ordered...Kyle wasn't home...and not to mention I am the only one in the house that knew the password to the blocks....not that I didn't trust Kyle with it....he just never needed to use it (the last movies we ordered were Daddy Day Camp and Mr. Magoriums do you see why a grown mad would not need to know how to order those dumb wonderful movies?). It was ordered at 5am...anyone that knows me that getting up at 5 just DOES NOT HAPPEN! So here we are *free* from TV....I am trying to talk him into ordering netflix every month instead of cable...that way when we need movies for school we can get them with no problem!

ARG to TV's!!! Anyone else feel that way?!?!?!?!

That is very frustrating!!
We haven't paid for cable since we've been married (almost 10 years!). We did just get a digital antenna and it has allowed us to get about 30 channels crystal clear for free! You can request a coupon for $40 off from the government.
We are so pleased to have more than the 2 fuzzy channels we've had forever!!

did you ever think that if you wouldn't 'order them' they'd not be on your bill??? - you've been telling me for a LONG time that you needed to break away from those old habits, but "old habits are hard to break", you'd say - i told you i'd be praying for you & i have, but not paying your bill after watching that smut... um, do you really think that's the christian thing to do??
