Exposed

I just love this story.

I'll give you the basic details. Woman is cheating on husband and is found out when her private cell phone listed in her maiden name was added to the household "bundle" so that all their services from Rogers cable came on one bill. The husband was able to see her cell phone calls on the bill and figured out that she was cheating on him which her cheating partner readily admitted to the husband. Husband leaves marriage. The end.

Except its not. Woman is upset cause she thinks the Cell provider did her wrong by bundling her cell phone with the home stuff and is now suing them for about 1/2 million dollars. Actually to be honest I think she has a point and may win but still..........

Well well well aint she brazen though? I mean imagine she horning the poor man an get ketch and she vex now and want to sue the phone company. She aint have no shame though? Looka what the world come to when these sort a people can cheat an get on so and dont have no shame at all. Imagine that.

But I'm also looking at this from another perspective. If I'm working in marketing for one of the other rival cell providers like Telus or Bell this is gold, jerry gold. I mean lets face it those Rogers ads with the dude who cant get cell reception cause his carrier isnt Rogers and the other ones with the guy who cant get HD tv cause his cable isnt with Rogers are pretty good digs at the competition so here is their chance to get back at Rogers.

If I'm in marketing at Telus or Bell I'm signing ol cheating girl to a contract and building a series of ads around her and this situation. Something like "Bell at least we wont bundle your ish without your permission" or "Telus so you can always keep your downlow on the downlow." or "Bell cause ya husband dont need to know about ya outside man"

Trust me like I said the situation is gold, I got a whole campaign mapped out but I not giving it to them fa free on my blog. Is mad ya think I mad? No star if they want it call me an we cud work a ting but I doan want the wife find out. Oh shoot mi phone bundle I gine an switch to Bell or Telus. :-)

I think she has a strong case also. I don't condone the affair. However, for all we know the husband was having an affair himself but was able to strike first, strike harder, and make out better.

Suppose the bill was for a tenant living at the same address? Would they have terminated the contract and bundled the bill?
How did the ex-lover get the password?
Rogers needs to clean up their act one way or another. Letting out all that information is just bad for business.
The bad part is that there were children, young children, involved who did not need to know about their mother's indiscretion.

GC I know what happened cause basically they did the same thing to us. Cell phone in my wife's name, Cable in mine. They called about a bundle, I said sure they added it all to one account. So someone did give approval to do it its just that it wasnt the person who should have (in this case the wife)

She should win this easily or they will at least settle with her

If she wins, I won't be surprised if the husband fights her for half.

I loved reading this story too. I also loved that the hubby just upped and left, not saying why.

Rogers is really advocating honest relationships through their bundling plan. It's only the trifling ones that have a problem with it. All they were trying to do was save some paper and get the chick a discount....

Love your take on the rival marketing possibilities...

It's a sign o' the times. No one is responsible for their own actions. In this case, rogers ruined her marriage (in her own head).

The fact of the matter is that if she wasn't doing the dirty, it would be a non-issue. 407 combined our plates without telling us, and sent us one bill. If you're not hiding anything, there is no issue.

I hope she loses. She deserves to reap the rewards of her actions. HER actions. Not rogers.
Which hurts me to say..because I HATE rogers.

Wow she will win this. Companies have to be more careful. It could have been worse. Someone could have died.People are crazy and when you play weith fire you will eventually get burned.

What radmila said except for the bit about hating rogers.
