Normally, on my drive home form work I multi-task to pass the time....and by multi-tasking, I'm not only talking about the usual nose picking or ball scratching, but I'll sometimes call friends, make dinner reservations, order a pizza, call an escort service, etc....well, last night I called up T-Mobile to switch call plans. Currently, I'm on a 600 any time minutes/unlimited night & weekends plan (for $39.99)....this works for me, as I do most of my personal calls during the day from my work phone....I have gone over my 600 minutes a few times but not by much.
But, I heard about T-Mobile's 1000 any time minutes/unlimited night & weekends plan (for $39.99), so decided to switch over. I must've called after hours, as I ended up speaking to an Indian woman with an extremely thick accent. I had to ask her twice to repeat her name. Her name was Eunice....ahem. Now come on...if Big Business is going to outsource to India, fine...but why make the call center folks use false, CORNY American names?
Anyhoo....Gita Eunice tried to talk me out of switching plans, as it would force me into a new 2-year contract. I was cool with that, but she advised that I remain on the current plan & once a week call in to check how many minutes I've used to date (so that I don't go over my allotted 600 minutes).....hmmm.....let me think about this: keep things as-is or get an additional 400 minutes at the same monthly rate & not having to call in weekly...gee, what should I do?
After I switched phone plans, I thought about calling one of my credit card companies to request a credit line increase (something I do every 6 months), but then I thought that the better idea would be to call in the morning when I could request that the real Eunice please stand up!
