Cingular can suck my left one

We just got smacked in the head with a very large (that would be almost $500 large) cell phone bill, due the day after we get back from our honeymoon. Unfortunately, it wasn't a mistake on their part, so all we are left to do is suck it up and hope we learned our lesson. But don't you think 40 cents/min is a bit excessive for overage charges?? That's what I get for paying *absolutely* no attention to the calls I made/received or what time they occurred ('cause you know that's the kicker). Sometimes I hate technology...

Our wedding thank-you notes will have to be amended to read: 'Thank you so much for your generous gift. We hope that Cingular Wireless will enjoy it as much as we would have. We did have to reduce our intended gift to Habitat for Humanity, but are hoping it paid for a new doorknob somewhere in Louisiana." Perhaps the CEO of SBC (Cingular's new owner) can put the money towards another zebra. Or maybe he'd like an emu?

Ooooh...Whitacre is an ass...I work as an Engineering Contractor for SBC and they suck just as bad when working for them. I used to have Cingular and I hated every second of it. I switched to T-Mobile, and they are pissing me off to no end. Hopefully I will find a cell company that is somewhat worthy of my cash.

Grats on the honeymoon, hope it was fun!

Cheers!

Too funny, J actually works for SBC too, so we bitch about Whitacre every so often (he really did buy a zebra).

Ouch. I had a $240 overage month kick my ass over the summer. I feel your pain.
