    Lucky you...when we got cable in our first apartment, we were required to have someone come out and "install" it...which consisted of taking the cable that was already in the room and hooking it up to the TV. Cost $50 bucks for something I could have done myself in 30 seconds.

    Comcast charges 100 bucks/month for phone, cable and internet service...and that's the introductory rate for the first three months. I have a local cable company now, and my internet and phone through AT&T, and it still costs me less than that.

    On the topic of the thread though, it is stupid to pay for someone to do something for you when you're provided with detailed instructions or otherwise have strong knowledge of the task. But I can vouch for people who are a little uncomfortable having family/friends do things for them, like working on a car or anything else that's expensive to replace. If a mechanic blows up your car while changing the oil, you can be compensated. If your idiot brother does it, you end up paying for the damages yourself.
