Please note: this conversation starts about 10 minutes in — by this point my wife and I are both completely flustered by the oppressiveness of the rep.

So! Last week my wife called to disconnect our service with Comcast after we switched to another provider (Astound). We were transferred to cancellations (aka “customer retention”).

The representative (name redacted) continued aggressively repeating his questions, despite the answers given, to the point where my wife became so visibly upset she handed me the phone. Overhearing the conversation, I knew this would not be very fun.

What I did not know is how oppressive this conversation would be. Within just a few minutes the representative had gotten so condescending and unhelpful I felt compelled to record the speakerphone conversation on my other phone.

This recording picks up roughly 10 minutes into the call, whereby she and I have already played along and given a myriad of reasons and explanations as to why we are canceling (which is why I simply stopped answering the rep’s repeated question — it was clear the only sufficient answer was “Okay, please don’t disconnect our service after all.”).

Please forgive the echoing and ratcheting sound, I was screwing together some speaker wires in an empty living room!

Updates:
7/15 - Comcast has issued an apology: http://corporate.comcast.com/comcast-voices/comcast-statement-regarding-customer-service-call
7/16 - I have continued to reiterate publicly that I do not want Comcast to terminate the rep, and that I believe the call itself belies a deeper, systemic dysfunction:

Ill Advice: Nas Offers Advice to Kendrick Lamar On Following Up A Classic Album
Nas shares words of encouragement for Kendrick Lamar on the follow up to his debut album, while discussing the pressure and challenges of following up a classic album with Complex Magazine.

It’s no secret that Nas’ debut album, Illmatic, was not an immediate commercial success, but still managed to move the hip hop culture to another level, eventually becoming one of the most successful and praised debut albums in hip hop. Released in 1994, the album spoke of a time and a culture that when paired with the Nas’ lyrical genius, went unmatched by the works of his peers both back then and now. Twenty years later, the success of Illmatic and the timeless body of work continues to draw comparisons between Nas and other hip hop artists of today. More recently, the conversation has shifted to draw comparisons between the success of Illmatic and Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city. During a recent interview with Complex Magazine, Nas addressed the comparisons between his debut album, Illmatic and Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city. With the massive success of Kendrick’s debut album, the pressure for an equally good or even better sophomore album is thick and can be a trying experience. 
Nas, speaking with Complex’s Insanul Ahmed, offers words of wisdom and advice to Lamar while sharing his experience on the completion of his sophomore album and addresses the comparisons between the two.
