Yes a break on the bills would be nice and to get reimbursed for the jobs I my be loosing out on to pay this bill
I use Verizon for business. Good thing I have SPRINT for personal. It got me through.
On news yesterday, Verizon gonna have outages due to some changes they are making so best get used to it! I'm AT&T all the way!!!
Well AT&T might as well be down no better service than I’ve been getting the last week or so!!
Businesses depend on these phones!! And pay way to much to be out of service. Need dependability!!!!
Verizon service has been bad for the last few months. Tired of it.
Verizon I’m so glad we pay these outrageous phone bills just to have statewide outages across the entire state! Y’all need to step up
Yea, I run a business and it is kind of hard for customers to which you without service.
My service has been bad before this. ATT here I come if we cant better than this
Kind of glad I’m on AT&T 😂😂
Yeah but I bet our bill wont show any reimbursement for the "inconvenience" they are so sorry about.
Devils advocate here.....I am fairly certain that Verizon itself did not purposely sabotage their own system. I'm sure they enjoy listening to people complain and complain about these issues. Its technology....its going to happen. They are working on it, so just relax a little bit and let them do their thing! I know it sucks....I'm without service too. But complaining won't help 🤷♀️
I hope there’s no real emergencies. We can’t even call 911 here.... not good Verizon... not good...
AT&T ALL THE WAY! 😜😂😂
Well I have an Arkansas number, but live in Louisiana, so that's what explains why my phone has been acting up for a few days!
I realize this can be an inconvenience but I have been with Verizon forever. This is a rare thing in all the years I’ve been with them Not like they do it on purpose. Geez
I use Straight talk and I have no cell service. 💁
Yeah really sucks when you're waiting on kids to call when theyre ready to be picked up from after school practices. Lots of panicking parents today.
This explains why we missed the call from publishers clearing house!! Would've been nice to accept my 10 million!!! Way to go Verizon.
It's back up now
It was August 10 the last time! Strike 2 Verizon!!! Strike 2!
Sad thing is my Ritter Wifi is more reliable
I'm going to need some reimbursement on the orders I'm missing because of y'all's phone service not being what y'all say it is I guess I need to go talk to my lawyer and ask him if three or four thousand dollars lost in having no phone service because of my providers cell towers going out I guess I'll be talkin to Verizon soon. Small businesses matter
Phone bill is too high to never have service.
We depend on service to pick up kids and for emergencies! Stop charging outrageous fees if you can't keep serice up!

I believe there would be fewer burglaries if this happened more often. Kudos to the home owner.
Good job to the home owner
Seriously, it could have ended very badly for the homeowner. And you don't know what else the burglar may have had planned. Glad they are ok.
The guys lucky to be alive. Maybe he'll think twice about it next time. Don't take "old" people for fools.
Good for the homeowner!
Good for this homeowner! We have a right to protect our homes.
Way to go home owner. This is why good people needs guns. For protection against these kind of people
Good for the home owner
You in his house!! Good job to the homeowner
Same thing in my home ...it's a crock when the ones committing the crime are protected more than the victims
Great Job to home owner!!
Good for the Old man! Glad he was not physically hurt!
And that's why I keep guns ...personally if someone breaks in my house they'd be lucky to get more than 1 warning because I got kids in my home
Loving this! Way to go Sir!!! Great job!👍
100% support. I’d done the same thing
Yay homeowner.... there needs to be more like him.
Wow I grew up with this man, goes to show u just don’t know people these day
He gave him the gun, bullets first lol. Good for the homeowner!
Hope the older man secures his house real good while the jerk is incarcerated 😥
Well... He DID ask for it. 🤷♂️
People are getting to the point where they believe it is somehow their right to just come into peoples homes and take their stuff...then the theifs family get angry at the homeowner for defending himself and his property. Crazy world we live in.
The burglar Must of been a Democrat!
He is lucky it was only his leg and not his life.
Careful what you ask for

They may as well not be open took my mom who has stage four cancer there I ask for scooter for her they had non available but there was employee going from register to register on one delivering change to cashiers I’m done with Walmart popular bluff mo
As long as I can still buy rope, duct tape, Halloween mask, and garbage bags I have no problem with it...
This is not in the interest of anyone's health but is 100% in the interest of BIG TOBACCO!
What the media has not told people is that most of the people who have been hospitalized used e cigarettes that had been tampered with, some had to much nicotine, some had thc added to them. This was reported 1 time only.
Amen good deal
Yay ! I wish they would stop making them, maybe save some of our KIDS!!!!
Well wal mart, meat causes heart disease, cigs cause cancer, Alchol causes liver damage and drunk driving, so on and so on. Guess you better just stop selling everything that somebody says is bad for you (which is everything you sell according to somebody at some point).
Walmart needs to stop selling sugar too. Walmart’s the reason for diabetes
But their having a huge sale on beer and cigarettes! Hypocrocy at its finest.
But yet they wanna still sell real cigarettes wich are just as harmful. Classy Walmart. Your literally ruining your own company🤣🤣🤣
It’s so funny watching all y’all get worked up over stuff. It’s there choice what they want to sell or not. It don’t directly effect anyone. They have a right to choose what to sell or what not to sell. Yall just like having something to complain about. But hey. It’s good entertainment on my end so carry on.
To 7?! So its banned?! Bring out the virtue signalling hipsters. Here is your latest "the sky is falling" trend from CNN. Go tell other how to live after 7 people died from altered e-cigs. Don't worry about your own back porch first. Just jump in and follow blindly. Share your blind devotionals here on FB about how awesome it is to tell other how to live thier lives. Maybe it will make you feel better about your own addictions.
What about cakes....they cause dibetis and over weight...
It’s the free market they can choose to sell or not sell whatever they want. Don’t think it’s gonna hurt their bottom line.
What about cigarettes they been killing folks for years
Cigarettes have been killing people for years and now they do this😂😂
Guns killed 3 kids last month, their taking your guns away. Abortion killed 862,000 kids last year, their protesting in the streets for the right to kill more. E cigs killed 6 so far, their off the shelves. Cigarettes kill thousands drunk driving kills thousands. No problem. Our priorities are screwed up.
What about alcohol and cigarettes?
Walmart didn’t sell anything vape related worth buying to begin with
Now do alcohol and cigarettes.. much bigger killers!!
Region 8 News can you please not be like the other media outlets and report the truth. It's already been proven the illnesses and deaths were not related to any nicotine vapes bought in a store. They were ALL black market ones bought from drug dealers
But you still sell cigarettes? 🤦♀️
Pretty soon they’ll stop selling food that’s not good for you too.
