    Posted: 06 May 2017 at 12:59am
So, I was watching The Cable Guy movie and Steven's friend reveals that Ernie "Chip" Douglas "The cable guy" was fired 6 months ago from the actual cable company after multiple customer complaints that he was obsessed with them and stalking them around after installing their cable for them. It is believable as Chip has become creepily fond of his newest victim, err, customer Steven Kovacs and is obsessive and stalking poor Steven around after Steven bribed him $50 for free cable. Chip says he doesn't want money, he wants friendship in lieu of money for the free cable. Steven agrees to be his buddy but had no idea how clingy Chip really was.(Turns out Chip was raised figuratively by TV Parents as his Mom was very hands off and just sat him in front of the TV and let him learn life's lessons from the TV. He turned out to be one clingy adult.)

How possible is it for someone who was fired 6 months ago to still be able to pose as a cable guy? I mean, Steven HAD to have called the cable company for his cable installation. There is no way that the cable company would have sent an employee that was fired 6 months ago. They would send a working employee! When you call Atlantic Broadband they don't send you John Doe that they fired in November for stealing money from the company! I wonder just HOW would Chip end up being the cable installer for Steven?
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

Yes, we understand that you tend to model your life experiences after plots from movies that most people would prefer to forget.  But before you get too deeply involved into living your new fantasy, do remember that acquiring and converting a white van into a cable company vehicle is an expen$ive proposition (most likely beyond your means, unless you steal one.)  You should reconsider sticking to your ripping off casino penny slots instead of stalking people.  It's much safer than risking the chance that you'll attract the attention of some random (and potentially dangerous) weirdo...  Wink

I was asking how possible could it be to pretend to be a cable guy after being fired 6 months ago? I was not saying that I personally wanted to be pretending to be a cable guy, I was just asking how realistic the Cable Guy movie plot was.

How realistic was the Ace Ventura Pet Detective plot?

How realistic are the plots of about 90% of the movies that get produced nowadays?

Not very.

Of course you could pose as a cable repair guy or gal. I would suggest perusing through the first four (4) seasons of 'Criminal Minds' as there were a number of fake cable guy episodes. Those sick bastards will provide you lots of ideas for how you can illegally and immorally take advantage of your fellow man (or woman, for those of you who are non-homo-sick-bitches) and possibly not get caught. Aaaaand...

Then why didn't you just say that ^^^ instead of all your blathering?
 
There was a woman who showed up at the store I was at, and just started working.  Nobody had hired her, but after a week store mgmt caught on (and officially hired her anyway.  It was a loose, but good, mgmt team back then.  LOL)  Not the first time she'd done that (or the last, I heard), but she knew her stuff.  Find a big enough company & it wouldn't be hard to pull off...  Wink

In one certain 'Criminal Minds' episode (where the guy was storing the dead women on hooks in a meat locker), they told you exactly how to do it.

There was an episode of Barney Miller where the same thing happened.

One day a new uniformed "officer" named Nash, played by veteran character actor Phil Leeds, showed up in the squad room as a new transfer assigned to do all of the mundane filing and clerical tasks, like delivering the mail, etc.



He proved to be highly efficient at his job, doing it better even than Officer Levitt, who decided Nash was a little too good and began to fear for his own position, so he contacted the Personnel Dept and found that there was no record of an Officer Nash employed by the NYPD. Which he of course, he immediately reported to Barney.

Upon confronting him, Barney learns that Nash was actually a retired accountant who'd always wanted to be a cop, so he just went to a uniform store, bought a uniform, a badge and a gun. Showed up one day and just started working.

He was so likable and did his job so well, everyone was sad to see him go, which he did, but only after a stern lecture from Barney.

If I were MrT or ol'Mule, I'd be keeping one eye looking over my shoulder, maybe have some 'friends' watching over me and my residence for a while.
It lives too close to both of you.
All of your CIH brothers and sisters pray for your safety and that we don't read about and view graphic photos of either of you being drugged, bound with duct tape and gagged with a mad banana.
Thor might go for it if the abuser speaks nice to him.
WAIT! Does this sound like some sort of 'Mechanical Chicken' concept album?

What *I* want to know is if one has been able to assume the identity of a lollipop salesman in a gay strip joint, why would that same individual have any question about how to be a fake cable guy? 
We all are still waiting on how or what you had to do to pull off being 'Mr. Lollipop'...
Ouch
And quit it with the 'sucker punches' - you have us all licked. Now please fill us in on Mechanical Chicken...or are you now on new meds and not willing to 'go there'?
