    I divorced AT&T several years ago because of its abysmal customer service where I live.
    Those annoying commercials with the annoying kids serve to reinforce my decision.
    Thanks, AT&T!

    Okay, they finally made a version of these commercials that I actually like. It's with Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Bill Russell and Kareem Abdul-Jabar:

    I think that means they can STOP now. It's gone on way too long.

    LOL I admit I am a little slow on the uptake and missed the point. I GET IT NOW. Haha. Those commercials are about as enticing as hemorrhoids. Who would voluntarily sign up for THAT?

    Parents of child actor hopefuls? They are trying to play off of "Kids Say the Darndest Things", the old Art Linkletter show, but the repetition of a commercial kills any cute aspects.

    Progressive "rate suckers" that attach themselves by the mouth to a moving car. Just disgusting.

    When the word "nonprofit" is used as a noun.
    It's a ADJECTIVE!! As in: nonprofit group, nonprofit organization, nonprofit facility, etc.
    Nonprofit is not a thing, it's a type of thing. It's a descriptive term. Use it as such!

    This is becoming more & more common misusage. It's on TV constantly, in the paper, in internet articles. It drives me crazy!! I just want to slap some sense into the people on the commercials & scream "Go back to English class!!!!"

    Such is the ongoing corruption of the English language.

    World English Dictionary
    nonprofit (nɒnˈprɒfɪt)

    — adj
    1. another word for non-profit-making

    — n
    2. an organization that is not intended to make a profit
