I have a post paid connection which has the monthly payment due on 25th of every month. For some reason, they start sending reminders right from the the first week of every month. The underlying assumption.....the customers need to be reminded a hundred times about those bills. Now receiving a reminder everyday with a deadline nowhere around renders those reminders kind of useless. As a matter of fact, I don't want to make a payment when the due date is still week's away.
That said, when I do attempt to make the payment, there website doesn't work most of the time. Now, there is a limit to the time I can spend trying to make my telephone bill payment. I have a job to do and a life to live without having to spend days trying to make phone bill payments. Then, they have this twisted system of assigning the job of bill collection to some local parties who send some shady characters for the bill collection.
For god's sake airtel.....fix the goddamned website and send the reminders AROUND the deadline.
Think about those movies like Matrix, Limitless- in which the protagonist gets up and feels lost or is being followed or is in some state of confusion but later on goes and finds the real awakening, some super power or the red pill. Now try to think of one similar movie which has a female as the lead. Nada....right??
It's true. Subconsciously, we accept that redemption, awakening, nirvana...(or whatever you call it) is meant for the male, only the male yearns for it while the females are busy drooling over shoes (remember Sex and the City) and dresses, trying to get married, nagging their boyfriends/husbands to death or just being cute and dumb.
