Do you know the difference between between .002 dollars and .002 cents? This poor guy ran into people at Verizon who apparently didn't.

Boring conversation. 0.002 cents is really really cheap, so the man should've questioned that sum.

He did-- and they assured him it was correct.

He even made them write it down. And he wouldn't know that is a really cheap rate as he normally has an unlimited plan.

I thought the video was quite painful but largely funny.

And that was the third representative that he talked to about the issue!

I listened that this morning while eating breakfast. Just another reason not to use Verizon.

Also, that doesn't seem that cheap to me. The actual rate is 0.2¢/kb, which as he learned, comes out to about $71 for 36 megs of data! 71¢ for that much data is more reasonable, in my opinion.
