Friends and Family

Always, always read the fine print.

Watch Video

I'd watch ultimate face punch wrestling...just saying.

loved the stinger.

The ending took me a bit to get. Dang that wireless company does its research.

Man I don't think I could call ANYONE I know on that plan, I'm terrible with names! :(

That sounds like an awesome show.
The stinger was funny, if a little predictable.

Oh...Oh!

Do they still do "friends and family" plans? I thought that was a 90s thing.

Zachary Amaranth:
Oh...Oh!

Do they still do "friends and family" plans? I thought that was a 90s thing.

Wait, it's a real thing!?

Well...that throws me off kilter...oh well.

Cryptic ending?

Yep... his mother had a wild streak in her...

So, Paul is a bad friend? Say it ain't so!
Also. Ouch. That's one way to learn the truth.

Cryptic ending?

Basically you got to call a few people for "free", but they got adds to join the mobile service.

Wait... so the father of Paul's character in that one is not actually his father? What a twist!

Cryptic ending?

Cryptic? Seemed straight up to me.

Anyway, yeah. They used to do stuff like friends and family, calling circles, etc.

Chrono212:

Well...that throws me off kilter...oh well.

Cryptic ending?

Yeah, it's a real thing, although obviously in real life you get to decide who your friends and family actually are and the wireless company has no say in the matter.

I think if you think about the implications of him not being able to call his "father" on the FRIENDS AND FAMILY plan, you should understand the stinger.

Family is more than just blood. Fie on the wireless company.

That's the best stinger I've ever seen XD

Heh. Awesome stinger this week.

The contract most likely spells out the exact meaning of "family".

That stinger! xD

I wish my phone company were that involved. Mine spells my name wrong, despite me correcting them on multiple occasions.

I knew I remembered face-punch wrestling from somewhere.

It is perfect chance not to pay your bill
If they are starting to contact you just say that you haven't received your bill for months
They will soon fix the name problem

Love it! Nice touch on the ending.

Man, that ending! Yeowch!

Endings funny.

Though, i'll be completely honest, i had a friend who, for five years growing up, we for the life of each other did not knwo the others name. Like gun to the head if you asked me anything about his name, I wouldnt have had a clue, and i doubt he would ahve iether. It only came up when the teacher asked me to take his homework home to him cause he was sick and she said his name and I just said "who" and she said that kid I always talk to.

I think this is the reason why Verizon got rid of the friends and family plan....KIDDING. Good one this week.

It's actually pretty popular in Sweden.
Only they work like normal contracts, except it's way cheaper, to the point that it's basically free, to call friends and family on the same plan.
It's win-win.
To have plans that simply bars you from calling people 'outside' of your plan is absurd though.
There's no way such a deal could even be remotely competitive here.

Life is much simpler when you simply don't have a phone...also alot more difficult if you want to order pizza...well if you don't go online, anyway.

Fantastic stinger. What a way to find out...

However, I totally agree with krellen

You can order pizza online? Never leaving the house again!

Not available in all areas.

And re-bill you for every month, only at one time. So instead of a $100 bill, you have a $500 bill.

would it be cheaper for an upgrade that just includes "acquaintance"? :/ loll

The stinger threw me for a loop. I was actually interested in what Paul's character was going to say to his "dad".

[edit] Is it bad that I post so infrequently that I have to agree to forum rules EVERYTIME I post?

I think the weirdest thing was that he actually dialed a number with his iPhone. Hello, phonebook, anyone?
