Sweet talking

Today, I called my mobile phone provider to end my contract. A sales rep spent over half an hour trying to convince me to reconsider, and I kept refusing. I ended up breaking down and accepting a "more economical" contract, which I didn't notice costs almost twice as much as the last one. FML

Apparently in your brain "no" means "Please **** me over monthly for the next 2 years."

Damn those salespeople with their honeyed voices!!! You have a cooling off period! Call her now to cancel it!!!!

Doesn't matter had sex

@27 You and I, you mean. :D

But then OP might get rigged into paying triple the regular price

40, and the cancelation fee, we have those things here in Norway sometimes, if you sign up for 1 year subscription and you cancel, you pay the whole year that month you cancel. And thinking that it's normal that 1 year subscription can cost 100-160 dollars a month.

No. By law you have a cooling off period, normally for five days. You can't get penalized for cancelling contract. It's law. Look into it.

14 days if its untouched or un-used :) least in norway.

Damn those sales people and their jedi mind tricks.

theres usually a "buyers remorse" period...here you can return/cancel any plan within a week or month, depending on who you are dealing with, simply because you were pressured or now regret it. at least in the US and Canada :)

Oh companies and their ridiculous fuckery!!

"I've heard about you and your honeyed words..." (after reading your about me, I hope you get this Skyrim reference)

It's only funny when you don't make a reference to your own reference. That, and you made the assumption that you're interesting enough to deserve your About Me read. That just comes off as conceited. Video game humor fail.

mind ninja. those phone companies' are sneaky

If this comment sounded to much like the other word and offensive, will the moderators please just erase it instead of banning me. I'm not racist and don't want to get banned for a racist comment. I thought it was relevant and funny.

After the third or fourth time they ask you to reconsider you hang up to avoid this problem.

More economical for the company

Must've been one hell of a salesman..

Or one hell of a pushover

My best guess is a combination of the both.

Didn't your mother ever tell you to just say no?!

Some people just have a hard time saying no in general. I know I'm definitely one of them and it sucks..

That rep sounds persuasive...

Ha they never said who it was more economical for apparently

I have a bridge for sale in Brooklyn - are you interested in buying it?

Is it by any chance the Brooklyn Bridge? In that case I'll take it for $2,147,483,647.
