The Incident: Phone company assigned teen’s phone number to someone else
The appropriate response: Complain and wait for it to be rectified
The actual response: He got the Waikato Times to do a story on it
Raymond’s father Kevin Curtis called 2degrees to get reconnected and but was told it could take up to five days to ”investigate” the issue.
”How can they so easily disconect, but they can’t reconnect?”, asked Mr Curtis.
Mr Curtis said Raymond had suffered some ”serious” bullying earlier this year, and also had a broken foot.
”If he hadn’t had his phone, things could have turned nasty very quickly.”
He said the bullying could rear up again, and it was important that they kept in touch.
Fuck me, what a dense bastard. Do you think having your son in the paper crying crocodile tears over his phone not working for a few days is going to make him a demi-God at school?
