Most inept customer service ever

Message 1 of 3

I've been without phone service and have sporadic internet access for the past four days. I'm home sick with no phone for doctors/friends/family to reach me. I called 7/10 for repair (it's a hard short in the outside cable - this has happened before and I told them so). Someone came out on 7/12. He found a hard short (duh!) but couldn't fix it and said the cable guy would come today. No show. I got a voice message (I have no phone service!) saying, "Your appointment has been rescheduled for an earlier date, July 14, 8-12 am." That's tomorrow. How is that earlier? (I got the same message the day before when they rescheduled.) When I called to enter the quick code and confirm the appointment the message said my appointment was scheduled for today before 7:55. It was already 9:00 and there was no option to confirm the appointment for tomorrow. Miraculously, I was able to get through to someone on the phone who couldn't help me because the repair center was closed. I asked why I kept getting phone calls when I requested to be contacted by email since my phone isn't working which is why I called in the first place. I've borrowed a cell phone which costs .27/minute. So far my charges are over $27, mainly for trying to deal with Verizon. There is no way to contact the appropriate person by email through the website. I can't call anymore because the normal wait on the phone for help is 25 minutes. It amazes me that a company can stay in business with such ineptness. I'm usually quite patient, but this will be the end of my relationship with Verizon. I hope someone from Verizon reads these things. I have no idea what happens to posts here. This is the first I've posted.
