This is hilarious...

Some guy tries to cancel his account and the AOL guy is basically telling him to shut up and listen to him try to convince him to keep it....

:thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet:

From what I have heard, this is not unusual...these guys and gals are very aggressive: "C'mon, keep the account! You want to! Keep it! Keep it!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD KEEP IT!!!!!!"

I'm glad I've never had to deal with that!!! :inlove:

I love two parts the best...

The one when the guy says your annoying the hell out of me and the aol guy says that goies both ways...

And when the AOL guy says you are going to listen to what I have to say or I won't cancel your account...

I called to cancel my account some years ago due to me switching to
Linux and @Home cable internet. I explained that the AOL software
would not run on Linux and she went on to offer me a free month of
service. "I can't run the software"
"How about three months free?"
"I can't run the software"
"Maybe you should buy a newer computer"
I finally got it cancelled.

Well if they would offer you the 3 months service plus a new computer well then it get's a little more tempting...
