    Woman Of The Year: Angry, Hammer Wielding Cable Customer Gains Revenge...

    Outstanding, and BRAVO!

    Woman who bashed Comcast office fined

    The Associated Press
    October 20, 2007

    BRISTOW, Va. - She was fined and got a suspended jail sentence, but Mona Shaw says she has no regrets about using a hammer to vent her frustration at a cable company.

    "I stand by my actions even more so after getting all these telephone calls and hearing other people's complaints," she said Friday.

    Shaw, 75, and her husband, Don, say they had an appointment in August for a Comcast technician to come to their Bristow home to install the company's heavily advertised Triple Play phone, Internet and cable service.

    The Shaws say no one came all day, and the technician who showed up two days later left without finishing the setup. Two days after that, Comcast cut off all their service.

    At the Comcast office in Manassas later that day, they waited for a manager for two hours before being told the manager had left for the day, the Shaws say.


    Shaw, a churchgoing secretary of the local AARP branch, returned the next Monday — with a hammer.

    "I smashed a keyboard, knocked over a monitor ... and I went to hit the telephone," Shaw said. "I figured, 'Hey, my telephone is screwed up, so is yours.'"

    Comcast Corp., the nation's largest cable company, disputes Shaw's version of its customer service record.

    Police arrested Shaw for disorderly conduct. She received a three-month suspended sentence, was fined $345 and is barred from going near the Comcast offices for a year.

    outstanding, i would gladly pay that if i could take my cable box down there and use it like a hammer
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Saw this on TV the other morning...she was real clear and not at all apologetic about how things went down. She ain't gonna take no guff from no cable company! She discontinued her service and went with satellite and says they are treating her like a queen...the interviewer said "do you think they've heard about you already?" and she replied with "well..maybe hahaha"

    Outstanding...score a point for the old bat!

    I immediately e-mailed this story to a friend, who has been having trouble with Time Warner for six months. Though there is an age difference, stay tuned for Part II!

    Don't mess with church-going AARP members. Seriously. They likely remember the time when customer satisfaction was something most company's cared about.

    That's funny, I pictured Betty White. I guess, subconsciously, I can't see Ruth Gordon as a Christian.
