Here's a quickie and a no-brainer.
When Cablevision, or any cable service for that matter has a problem and you lose service for more than a day they will reimburse you for the pro-rated amount on your next month's bill. Naturally they are not that gracious and magnanimous and you will have to call them to remind them that you are entitled to the rebate but they will honor their commitment if caught.
This policy is a good one and should be instituted everywhere you pay for service but are denied it for a period of time.
And that brings me to the point of this rant, New York's Senate in Albany has not been working for about a month now and while they have never been that good at what they have been hired to do they have been doing nothing for too long.
Citizens of the State deserve and should demand that the Senators not be paid for their month long unscheduled sabbatical and we should receive a one month's worth rebate on our State taxes!
NO WORK - NO PAY
NO SERVICE - NO TAX
