My favorite line of TFA:

The spokesman would not comment on whether the customer would still have to pay the bill in question.

Something tells me T-Mobile is going to owe him a lot more than a month of service.

This is why they're shocked and saddened.

In a written statement, a corporate T-Mobile spokesman wrote that the company was "shocked and saddened" to hear about the incident.

The spokesman would not comment on whether the customer would still have to pay the bill in question.

AT&T only rapes you once a month, no stabby stabby.

See, why the kid even CARED is what I don't get!

It's a problem of motivation, all right? Now, if he works his ass off and T-Mobile double-bills a few extra customers, he doesn't see another dime. So where's the motivation? And here's another thing, he probably has eight different bosses right now!
That's should be his real motivation - is not to be hassled. That and the fear of losing his job, but y'know, it will only make someone work hard enough not to get fired.

Meh, I'll risk the occasional blade to the gut in order to not have to use AT&T.

Hey, the guy grabbed his shirt. The kid felt threatened and had to Stand his ground. SYG, it's not just for guns.

This is relevant to my interests...

I'm thinking about ditching Verizon and my grandfathered unlimited data for a new phone..

There's a deal on T-Mobile $30/mo. 100 minutes, unlimited 4G unlimited text..

The extra steps seem to include never calling..
Order online/Walmart..
+Avoid the stabby guy
Answer several riddles
Balance on 1 leg while doing all of the above.

But dude! 30$ / month and I have Skype for outbound calls!

The customer disrespected him, obviously.

I've worked in a few cell phone retail stores. I wanted to stab a lot of customers but didn't because of this "law" thing.

The best call I ever got working for TM was when the husband thought the dog ate the phone and he was calling his phone number and putting his ear up to the dog's stomach to see if he could hear it ring......

My husband's best call ever...... ( we both worked there ) "Mam, if you put the gun down, I will give you minutes". Just put the gun down. PLease don't shoot my dealer. "

Oh, I hope they bill him anyway. His attorney will have a field day with it.

If I was the stabber I would turn to the people in the mall and yell out "Are you not entertained!?"

Just came to brag about being grandfathered into Virgin Mobile's $25 unlimited* data plan with 300 talk minutes.

*really they mean 2.5GB which is throttled if you go over.

I just don't understand why the employee would go on the run after something like this. I guess panic. But still, be a man ferchrissakes, they know every last detail about you. You'd have to move to bloody Mexico and suck dick to make a living and then they would probably catch you anyway.

It works a lot better for you if you turn yourself in, especially in a non-premeditated crime. You might even be able to say you felt threatened, but not after you farkin' run away.

I guess he is black, so maybe he feels he won't get a fair shake. I, mean, I guess he did stab a goddamn customer, so fair shakes or otherwise it won't be pretty. Man, I am glad I'm not black mostly because of the bullshiat that would get handed to me just because some other black asshole can't handle his shiat. My buddy from Africa has to vent on me about the shiat he goes through on a regular basis because of prejudice. No bueno, man.

I'm still somewhat amazed that people consider XKCD to be so funny. I mean, I've laughed at some of his stuff, but the majority of it...really?

(He wrote a math problem on a check and then "what now, biatches?"! Ha ha ha! It's funny because Verizon won't know what to do with it!)

That's what I have too. It's badass. I used Google Voice and GrooVe IP for free calls.

Wait I thought it was Mexicans who were preternaturally stabby. I need to brush up on my racial stereotypes.

I drove a cab for a while and got to hear a lot of Africans complain about African-Americans. It was simultaneously amusing and disturbing.

IMHO a lot of is "ha ha ha - I get the joke, therefore it's funny and I'm so smart!". Humor via a sense of superiority.
