Service (telephone) providers that *require* a credit check to start new service at a new home, even though I've been a customer of theirs for over 15 years.

I don't want anyone to touch my credit report unless I agree with the need... like, say, getting a mortgage for a new home. The phone company certainly doesn't qualify. And the zombies on the other end couldn't come up with a good reason either... other than "it's company policy". And they couldn't come up with any 'workaround'.

Fine... "We're done. Goodbye." There are other alternatives that I can choose from (thank you, free market! Well, as free as it can be, anyway.)
