Holy crap!!  That's a lot of dough.  Seriously though, that's hard to figure.  But even if those stats are iffy, you know it's somewhere in the ball park.

According to a www.huffingtonpost.com report...Waiting on the cable guy or any other service person, at your home, collectively costs the US over $40 Billion!!! 

This estimation is causing the cable companies to try "self installing" equipment and do it yourself, home installation.  But that's going to cause a lot of people to lose jobs too.  Somebody's always gotta lose.

But it would be great to not ever hear "Someone will be there between Twelve and Five tomorrow" again.  Seriously?  How can anyone live their normal life when they're expected to have to wait around during a FIVE hour window of time?
