    I'll add my "hate" vote for the two banks listed. I hope they run into a buzz saw.

    AT&T's wireless signal is so bad that I smashed my phone and burnt its SIM card after switching to a DROIDX on Verizon.

     

    Comcast's ISP is so bad that AT&T's DSL service looks superb in comparison.

     

    I think it's only a matter of time before those monopolistic cable providers suffer the same fate as, let's say Blockbusters.

    Not surprising the list is dominated by Banks and Airlines!

     

    Both business models realize they are necessities and can stick it to the Customer with obnoxious fees and horrible Customer Service.

     

    The government has compounded the issue for these guys with unequal and confusing policies that contribute to the distorted business models!

    Without a doubt, its the organization with the "honorable mention" at the end (top?) of the list: The Federal Government. ALL of the calamities in my life, that were not caused by my own actions, were caused by actions of the federal government. The US government is far too stupid to be so big.

    Yeah! I have to deal with T and TWC, and I hate, hate, HATE them both. They need competition, and I tell them so every time I have a run-in with them.

    At least Sprint is better priced to it's quality. AT&T on the other hand, charges out the a** while giving subpar service.

    It is surprising how some of these hated companies just continue to grow every year and remain on the most hated list.

     

    Life is to short! If you hate a company get rid of it! Next year the haters will hate the same companies and those companies will have grown again. The only loser will be the Haters!
