If the Comcast guy falling asleep on a guy's couch wasn't enough to get the company to warn their techs NOT to fall asleep on the job, this surely will.


Apparently, a Garden City family had a Comcast contractor fall asleep on their son's bed, and when woken up by the youngster, the guy just "proceeded to lay there and fall asleep again." Comcast of course apologized and said this:

Comcast has reached out to the customer to apologize for the unsatisfactory experience. We have been in direct contact with the customer and have restored his services to his satisfaction. We obvioously do not condone what was represented in the photograph. The individual involved is no longer performing work for Comcast.

Two things to all of you :

1) They're install techs. Doesn't matter what comapny they work for, they're ALWAYS going to suck, and it has very little to do with Comcast that they do. If you don't know how to hook up your HDTV yourself, what are you doing on Gizmodo? Shouldn't you be playing with some safety scissors?

2) I've had nothing but good things from Comcast. They're slightly overpriced, but my internet is much faster than the other options, so worth the extra price, and I haven' thad service issues in the 7 years I've had Comcast internet. Their HDTV beats out my buddy's DirecTV setup, and certainly beats out my friends' RCN setup. I don't know anyone with FIOS yet so I can't compare to that, but considering what's out there, even t hough it's not the fashionable cool thing to do, I gotta say Comcast has done just great.
