explaining your time warner bill

from the new yorker. gave me a good laugh. needed it!

Made me think of my old ATT bill that was supposed to be cheaper than the MCI service. Only after they added on all the taxes, it was always more. I don’t try to figure it out anymore. MCI, not sure it still exists. That company may not have had as many taxes, but if you did have to dispute a problem, you would have to “hold” for at least an hour. OMG.

Anyway, the $1.35 that “somehow goes to Goldman Sachs” is a good one. as well as the $120.32 that goes to “Residuals owed to composer of ‘Please Hold’ music.”
