Poll: Waiting For Cable Guy Is Huge Waste of Money

Sitting around waiting for the cable technician to show up isn't just a waste of your time... it's also a huge waste of money. A new IBOPE Zogby poll shows waiting for in-home services and appointments cost American workers a whopping 37.7billion dollars this year.

More than half of those polled said they waited an average of four and a half hours for their appointment to show up. The poll shows cable techs kept customers waiting the most... but Internet technicians and furniture delivery people also made the list.
