When a 66-year-old man's house burned to the ground, he lost his TV set. His daughter called Comcast to cancel his service, but they refused, saying it couldn't cancel it until he gave them his account number (which was also lost in the fire).
His daughter told Comcast, "Here's your choice, disconnect the service or send someone out to fix the cable, because it's not working." She says the Comcast rep replied, "That doesn't make sense, because the house burned down."

Aaron Spain tried to get Comcast to improve his service for a month with no luck. So when he tried to cancel his service he was put on hold for over three hours. Then Comcast closed for the day and cut him off.
