    Re: Wouldn't want to be surprised by this bill

    The phone company, Bouygues Telecom, initially told her there was nothing they could do to amend the computer-generated statement and later offered to set up instalments to pay off the bill.

    Re: Wouldn't want to be surprised by this bill

    Awful nice of them to give her the option of paying in installments instead of trying to collect all at once. She must've spent all month talking on her phone, I can't believe what this world is turning into.

    Well they are big enough to sponsor a cycling team. Not that that means they still couldn't be a scam.

    That company name (if it were pronounced English-like) just struck me as funny...

    Hello? This is Bogus, I mean "Booweeg" Telecom. Our records show that you owe us 12 quadrillion Euros. Can we get a credit card number?

    I have a CF coupon for 10% off my next phone bill. Do you think they would accept it?

    LOL

    The cycling announcers (who are generally known for butchering names) didn't disappoint when the team first came out so don't go by what they say. The best I can tell is that it is essentially one syllable and is somthing like 'bwig'.

    I don't speak frog, though.

    My response would be filled with all kinds of colorful words, none of which can be shared with you good folks today.
