Ditching your network

Because I’m tired of expensive calls and ludicrous charges for data, I have decided to ‘break up’ with my mobile service provider. Not to be insensitive and because I can’t do it face to face (apparently asking to see the CEO of Vodacom so you can break up in person is considered frivolous) , I’ve written this letter to them.

Dear Vodacom,

Please don’t ever think of this as being a “you vs. me” situation because it never has been.

You were my first love. Savvy. Successful. For years I didn’t think anyone could compete, but you made it clear through your data bundles that I wasn’t for you and I was happy to hold on to you as a friend.

But everyone needs to be loved back at some point. I couldn’t wait forever, and I found someone who loves me back. I’m sorry if my switching to Cell C made you realize you had buried feelings for me, but you can’t claim me as your own just because you’re ready now. Know that part of me will always love you.

I’ll stand-by you. When your ads are on TV I’ll watch them, you’ve always been creative.

PS: It’s not me it really is you.
