So in the spirit of things, let's add your observation to the list:

And now I'll add my own:
"But I pay 'you guys' over $200 a month!!!"
This one is just asinine. People say this all the time, and they act as though their bill gets mailed to my store and I'm taking that money, putting it in my bank account, and using it to pay my Ferrari payment. Wow. You pay your bill every month. Congratulations. Would you like a cookie? You pay your bill, and Verizon provides you with cellphone service. You are not special. Millions and millions of other people do this very same thing every month, all over the country.
Low price, Excellent Service, High Quality. Pick any two, but you never get all three.
