    I think this one might be local, but I can't stand the commercials for Corky's Pest Control. There's an annoying-looking guy who doesn't really talk, and the theme song is one of those that sticks in my head, even though I hate it!

    If I have to see the Nutrisystem commercial with Chris Berman in it one more time I just might scream. He may have lost 40 pounds but he still has a big, fat mouth!!

    I was JUST saying that. I am so sick of him and of Marie Osmond both and Nutrisystems.

    Too bad Nutrisystems can't make them lose the big fat mouth part.

    There is a radio ad where a guy has to drop out of anger management classes just before graduation because he had to call Charter Communications and they made him lose his temper again. Well I thought it was funny the first couple of times and I wanted to say good thing he didn't call AT&T or he'd not only have dropped out of anger management, but would have blown up the AT&T headquarters. But now, I"ve heard it about 200 times and I"m over it.
    It's an ad for DirectTV which is laughable as we have that and their customer service sucks too.

    I stopped at home between classes for lunch, flipped on the TV, and saw some obnoxious diaper commercial with a rapper and others singing something about a "potty dance"? I was half-expecting Billy Mays to chime in . . .

    We have Charter Communications and their customer service is horrendous. I'm about as even-tempered a person as you'll ever find but everytime I need to get on the phone with them I turn into a screaming banshee.

    I still hate the freecreditreport.com commercials and I mean every one of them. :nono

    We have them too and I absolutely DREAD having to call them. Especially for cable modem help because they have an automated "woman" who tries to get you to go thru the same steps of finding your cable modem, unplugging it, etc EVERY time you call. If I hadn't already done those things and had it still not work I WOULDN'T BE CALLING!! I have gotten to the point where I play dumb and answer no to every question the system passes me on to an actual person.

    i HATE those kinds of computerized calls. don't EVER clear your throat while waiting for the stupid recording to stop ... you'll get her to say "i'm sorry, i didn't quite get that"

    SNL did a skit a while back making fun of that automated "woman" ... it was pretty funny.

    YES! I actually swear at her until I get connected to a representative. My daughter walked in one day and heard me saying "F You, Bite Me" into the phone and she says " Oh My God Mom, who are you talking to like that"?
    And yes BFD I got the "i'm sorry, i didn't quite get that" so I just repeated it.

    OMG I am laughing so hard. I am SO doing that next time I get one of those. Especially if it's AT&T the absolute worst customer service line in the entire universe.
