1. Those $&#! hotlines take 30 min just to accept your call, and by then you forgot your problem

2. Since all the parts are made of different companys, they all blame it on each other.

3. I dont call them anymore, some guy came in and said, "ok, all fixed" and it went slower than ever.

4. Sympatico (its canadian, SBC is american) doesnt do crap ass!

I can tell because of your lack of caps and apostrophes, and the mispellings.
