Verizon's "Half House" commercial makes NO sense
I suffered through this entire stupid commercial because I thought that at the end, the message would be "if you live in a space only half the size of the average house, a lot of companies will make you full price, and that's not fair. But Verizon doesn't charge you for more than you get, so if you live in half a house, we only charge you half THEIR price...."
Instead, the whole "half-house" thing seems to be completely pointless. Yes, these idiots live in "half a house," for whatever reason. But Verizon doesn't discriminate against them "just" because they live in "half a house"- Verizon treats them exactly the way they treat their customers who live in normal, full-sized houses (or the kind of houses that exist on tv- massive, gleaming mansions.) Verizon charges the half-house people every bit as much for cable as they charge people who live in those full-houses. Um, yay Verizon?
(By the way, the "half-house" shown here is still bigger than my apartment, which is connected to the outside world by Verizon for a fee that makes me feel like I live in a big house...um, thanks again, Verizon?)
