Dear Mr. Comcast Technician Man,
Please come and fix my phone.
I know you are busy. I know you have a good chunk of Provo to fix. But why wouldn't you come over and fix mine while you were here fixing George's next door?
Lots of my neighbors have phones that work.
I'll give you a coke and I'll buy you a pizza.
Really, I am a nice person and I really need my phone.
We don't have a cell phone as a back-up.
I've been really really patient, pleasant and understanding and even made some pretty good jokes when I have called (on my neighbors' phones, of course) trying to get my phone, internet and cable fixed.
I'm a good customer and always pay my bill.
Your mother would be proud of you.
I'll be your best friend.
We can keep it a secret between the two of us.
It will only take a minute.
Tomorrow is just too far away.
Your best customer,
