Verizon poetry written by a disgruntled customer.

I previously wrote that Verizon has a whole lot of fine print in their contracts. Ultimately, however, they present a good option for Caribbean cruises and other short term travel abroad.  In April of this year, I switched from Verizon to AT&T because I was tired of dealing with Verizon customer service for routine problems.

I just hate the rocket science involved in figuring out what I am getting. I usually get some sort of lawyerly response, but this isn’t a court of law.
