What Are The Odds?

Big Brother is everywhere y’all.  Ole George was right!  How do I know this?

Last time Pony joined us for supper, he drove us to the restaurant.  His vehicle is still new and he has a free trial of Sirius radio.  We talked about paying for air <grumble, grumble> and how it was very expensive after the trial ended but when we paid for three years, we got a break.  Still the cost was hundreds of dollars.  We are economizing to pay for land, so Sirius and a deep reduction in our Dish TV options were the first things to go.

UNTIL ….

Did I mention we bought land?  In the boonies.  And there is no reception or very little reception anyways.  Did I mention, we had dinner with our son?

Pony insisted the price came down and was something like $5 a year.  I replied maybe a month but … and even at that, I had heartburn about paying for that which should be free!

Let me tell ya folks, nothing SHOULD be free but you get what I mean.  Let the advertisers foot the bill and maybe I will buy their products.  Any who, the day after our dinner, we get a post card in the mail.  Dear former listener!

Sacribleu!!!

Dear current listener.  You are a sap!  lol.  Well not me!  My baby Buick is set to KONO-AM 860!  I don’t need no stinkin’ XM bullsH!t.  🙂

As always, more to come.

  1. I rarely listen to the radio. If I do there are plenty of stations to listen to or I can just plug in my MP3 player for many hours of music. Days probably.

  2. I fought with them when our free trial ended because I didn’t not want to continue. They kept offering to extend the free trial in exchange for my credit card information. I told them “I never listened to it when it was free! Why would I consider paying?” It’s getting harder and harder to escape, but I’m up for the battle.

  3. I miss KONO. I use Pandora now. They want a lot to drop the ads, so I tolerate. My problem with XM is that I use (maybe) up to 5 stations, but (like cable) pay for so many more.

  4. Sirius offered me a life time subscription for around $345.00 for up to 3 radios after I bought my Passat; so I bought it. Fast forward 11 years and I still have my Passat, been thru on small mobile radio for the truck which was replaced with a new radio. The truck is a 2003 S10. Sirius lost money on me. they had zero clue as to how long I hold on to my rides. 😉
