Unauthorized Renewal of Contract when REturning Question

I called in October 2017 when I was switching to DirectTV asking when my Home Security contract would be fulfilled, and was told I had six months left on the contract.  I was ok with that because I signed an agreement, but I could return the Cable TV equipment and keep the Cable Modem because I still wanted that.  The equipment return did not go so well, the person had no idea what they were doing, and when their manager came to help return the equipment, they must have renewed my subscription and put me on a bundle.


I never asked or had intention to change the contract length, just return the equipment.  When I talked with the customer service person on the phone, they admitted that it was a training issue on their side that made my error but could not offer any remediation.  They could only offer to credit my account, but I am probably have to call every month for infinity (many that is how xFinity came about).  


Is that how customer service should be handled?  Has this happened to other customers, and were you able to finally come up with a solution to end your service for the Home Security, and such a blatant fault on Comcasts side?
