    Shikha>
    You're most welcome.
    Shikha>
    Is there anything else may I assist you with today?
    Guest_>
    if you could have helped me check out would have been great, but you've tried to upsell me a more expensive package without actually helping so that wasn't very helpfull.
    Shikha>
    Vadim, I have pulled up your account
    Guest_>
    can you do me a favor and add performance internet and basic cable by themselves? without being a package?
    Guest_>
    that's what i've had in my cart but i couldn't check out because the site is under maintenance.
    Shikha>
    Alright!
    Guest_>
    maybe then you'll be able to provide me the service that i wanted at the right price
    Shikha>
    Let me again check that for you.
    Shikha>
    Vadim, would you like our technician comes at your place and install the services?
    Guest_>
    no, i already have your service installed
    Guest_>
    i just need someone somewhere to flip a switch or press a key so i can have 20mbit connection instead of 6mbit.
    Guest_>
    i've had your service for past 4 years till today when i came home and found it i have no internet...
    Shikha>
    No need to worry.
    Shikha>
    I am adding the same package to your account.
    Shikha>
    The Basic cable and Performance Internet to the account.
    Guest_>
    yes please.
    Shikha>
    I can provide you the self install kit for $9.95 one time shipping charges.
    Shikha>
    Is this fine?
    Guest_>
    i don't need any kits. i already have modem. i already have your cable, i already have your internet. my problem is my internet is 6mbit when i want 20mbit.
    Shikha>
    Vadim, as I can see in my system you are using our Interent service.
    Shikha>
    There is no cable service in your account.
    Shikha>
    So I need to add that to your account.
    Guest_>
    that's correct. till two days ago i had both cable and internet then one of your reps told me i can cancel cable and keep same 20mbit internet for $50 a month. that's what prompted me in the move and now i have to redo everything that i've head because i've been mislead by a comcast rep.
    Shikha>
    Vadim, I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.
    Guest_>
    not your fault, but do try to straighten this out. PLEASE
    Shikha>
    But my system won't allow me to finish your order without the self installation kit.
    Guest_>
    your system is stupid, sorry.
    Shikha>
    I understand how frustrating is this.
    Shikha>
    But I would highly recommend you please call on our toll free number on Monday.
    Guest_>
    you can send me the kit, but then refund me $9.95 because i have nothing to install. i've had everything installed for the last 4 years.
    Shikha>
    If you don't want the kit then you need to place the order at the service center.
    Shikha>
    From there you can pick the kit free of cost.
    Shikha>
    As they have direct contact with our dispatch team.
    Shikha>
    They have more resources then us.
    Guest_>
    i'd rather wait till monday and just call them over the phone. thanks for your help.
    Shikha>
    Perfect!
    Shikha>
    You're most welcome.
    Shikha>

    You have much more patience than I. I wouldn't have made it through 10 minutes.

    Sounds like someone from... not necessarily India, but... Haha I see what you did there at the end, ironically the Comcast rep I talked to a few years back said that same word whilst describing coaxial cable. Good stuff.
