Gripes have taken over Forumsville, Internetland once again, but it’s not all for poor server management and broken promises of pizza.

It all stems from a thread on the /r/TMobile subreddit talking about CEO John Legere’s quick Twitter teaser on something new for the Un-carrier’s customers.

Popular comments kicked off with cynicism for how great the T-Mobile Tuesdays perks have been recently.

A couple of points:

  • “Some French travel magazine” is Conde Nast Traveler, a Hearst publication out of New York
  • “The same Pokemon Go unlimited data thing” offers unlimited high-speed data for use in Pokemon GO for a year. That’s a controversy within its whole self.

That said, some people don’t have the hardware wherewithal to run Pokemon GO and probably won’t past the offer validity period. Some people don’t live in a Lyft market. Some people don’t travel, don’t wish of traveling and don’t need a hotel any time soon. And believe you me, there’s a whole bunch of intersectionality that can happen between those circles of people.

Now add on congested servers and you can see how “worthy” of an Un-carrier 11 campaign T-Mobile has run for some of its customers.

That said, Legere still wants to keep people excited for an ever-changing calendar of perks.

“I have so many different additions to T-Mobile Tuesday coming up every week and you’re going to love it,” Legere said in a Facebook Live stream.
