Chandler then agrees to the gym taking $50 from his account each month for ever, and Ross signs up, too. But this fictional gym isn’t the only membership tricky to cancel. A whole raft of companies, from insurers and telecoms companies to magazines and slimming clubs, make it easy to subscribe, but annoyingly difficult to leave.
