    What happens when your customer service representative can't tell the difference between dollars and cents? Hilarity!

    A transcript of poor George in a Verizony world of incompetence and stupidity here.

    If you're a true Internet heroine, you can download the 30 minute mp3.wmv (don't ask me) from this link.

    But reading the transcript is really more fun. And efficient.

    Listened to the audio last week somewhere. So funny.

    I can understand Verizon's confusion. They think when they HEAR "point zero zero two" I's going to look like $0.002 regardless of whether or not you say "cents" or "dollars" after it. That's problem #1. The second problem is that they don't think $0.002 exists anyway because you never see a third numeral (thousandths place) in a price.

    Still, you'd think at least one of the few Verizon employees involved would have a head on their shoulders to some degree.
