I hate AT&T for largely irrational reasons. Every couple of years, I'll get bombarded with junk mail and such touting the U-verse service. I'll think, "what the hell, may as well check it out." So I'll go online, and only after ten minutes of asking for information and futzing around will their website tell me it's not available in my neighborhood. THEN STOP SENDING ME ADVERTISEMENTS, DUMBASSES! This has happened to me in at least 3 different places I've lived in the last several years. It annoys me to an unreasonable degree, and leads me to conclude that they are uniformly incompetent in all things they undertake. Don't try to confuse me with your facts or first-hand knowledge.
Well, I also hate them because when I started my new gig last year I had to switch to AT&T cell service (which I had sworn off years before) in order for the company to pick up the tab, and their service (at least around here) is vastly inferior to the Verizon service I had before. Yes, I am deeply resentful about getting marginally worse cellular service for free than I could get by paying for it myself.
