T Mobile, You Suck

T Mobile's collections practices are, in my opinion, apalling!

Last night I received an automated call from T Mobile that said essentially "If this is John Doe, press 1..." Knowing that their machine would keep dialing until someone answered I pressed 1. Apparently John owes T Mobile $900.00.

I am not John.

My first name isn't John, nor is my last name Doe, but let's say for the sake of this blog that my name was Seth Doe. Same last name, but totally different person.

When the agent got on the line I told her that my name was not John Doe, that no John Doe lived at the number and that I had never met a John Doe, nor did I have a T Mobile account.

She first tried to tell me that John must have lived at my number in the past. I said no, it's been my number for nearly 6 years.

She then tried to say John listed me as a contact. I said no, there is no John in my family.

She went down a few other paths trying to make it out to be an honest mistake that T Mobile collections had made, and they were going by information John had submitted with his account, but let me tell you what really happened.

My wife, let's call her Suzy Q Doe, signed up with T Mobile about six weeks prior to their automated call. Because she shared the same last name as some guy named John on T Mobile's collections list, T Mobile decided to add our home phone number to their queue for harrasment.

That's not an honest mistake, that's harrassing good customers for the sake of collecting from bad customers.

T Mobile, you suck!

Blogging for Dollars

Ever wanted to get paid to blog? So why don't you?

Penis Hero is just for fun, and in no way commercially viable as a publication. It's just fun to rant and ramble every now and then, but I do make some cash as a bi-product. You can too.

Everybody knows about Google Adsense, especially on Blogger, but there are more options out there, and you don't have to flog some junk ebook either.

When I wanted to blog about sexy halloween costumes I found product links on Shareasale.com (an affiliate marketing network) for many of the costumes I was writing about. People out on the web looking for sexy Halloween costumes found my post and the pictures of sexy Halloween costumes and believe it or not, I sold some costumes and earned some dough for having fun writing a blog entry. That post was last year and I'm still getting traffic on it. Fingers crossed for 2009...

That thing on the right that you've been staring at, the thing with the chicks scrolling back and forth flashing a little skin. That thing gets clicked all the time and those clicks make me money, not a lot, but it adds up. Is it tacky? Maybe, but both men and women are clicking and joining to meet like minded adults, so I can't complain. Besides, the blog is called "Penis Hero", do I really care about tacky?

If like me, you don't mind hot chicks scrolling around your blog, and your traffic may be a good fit, join the program HERE and grab a banner to add to your blog. Or just copy the source code and post my banner, I don't mind...

This is a fun site, but some of my better sites actually generate inqueries from advertisers wanting to buy ad space, paid in advance. Again, it's not a fortune, but I'll happily pocket a few hundred bucks for posting a link or two.

Anyhoo, just a little bored checking commission reports, so decided to post something. Not much of a post, but there you go.
