Walmart cashier
convenience store clerk
beer/soda delivery driver
package delivery

These people don't expect anything (water, tips etc...), but a little respect and appreciation.

Many of your replies were exactly as I expected and what I saw. And you should be ashamed, your ignorance amazed me....
Poor widdle cable dude! I'll make sure to offer him some warm milk and cookies the next time I call upon his services.

I notice the OP doesn't mention that his ride withs pulled this crap. Biased.

I can relate to some of the OP's frustration as well. I used to be a cable installer for Cablevision for awhile. I didn't have nearly as many problems though and I was nice to everyone I came in contact with.

As far as the dogs are concerned, I have been chased before... but I would usually ask if there is "an animal I should be concerned about" on my pre-call.

Default Never hated any company

the way I hate the cable company. That's no hyperbole. And I have very good reason for feeling that way, which I won't go into because everyone knows already.

And you think I care if you hate me?

I'm sure it does suck to work for the most hated company in America. But I can't help you with that.
