Drinking More HD Kool-Aid

Against my better judgement, but in the face of really crappy HD DVR (not to mention customer service) from RCN, I bought an HD TiVo. They’re running a special that includes lifetime product service and it’s comparable to what I...

Obligatory “New Target” post

Yep, I finally got up and headed over to the new Target and I gotta say, while I don’t necessarily agree with what it might herald, it is a really nice store. I know everyone’s been posting a picture like...

What a f**king liberty!

Y’know, it’s been a while since I’ve had a really bad customer service experience so I suppose I was way overdue. Thankfully it didn’t exactly happen to me, though considering where we were, we should have already learned our lessons....

We’re S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G…

Gods bless tax refunds, huh? It’s been a good few days of shopping for me. I finally broke down and bought a new television set, 37″ LCD HDTV. I really couldn’t justify anything larger in my living space and that...

A truer tagline was never written

The chairman of the Florida GOP expressed pleasure at Allen’s resignation, however, the taxpayers will ultimately foot the bill. Today the Sentinel reported that it will cost Brevard and Orange Counties at least $200,000 each to hold special elections. That’s...

Dumbledore vs. Apple Store

It’s finally happened, my post about Dumbledore being a homo has garnered more interest than my post on the Apple Store’s dreadful customer service. I’m a little surprised at that, to be honest since the Apple Store post was linked...

What a difference a day makes

So I must have been trapped in Bizarro Starbucks World yesterday morning since today’s visit was almost like an old-school commercial or the intro to a 50’s tv show. I walked in and smiled at the barista as usual and...

It’s already such a good morning…

Nothing like waking up with Federally mandated jet-lag, but at least I know that the rest of the country’s going to have it as well. It’s going to suck when my body catches up with the time change and I’ll...

I make requests, not demands…

It’s true. In all my years as a customer, many times an irate customer, I have yet to make a demand, unreasonable or otherwise. Having had enough retail and/or customer service jobs has led me to feel that I should...

It comes down to the individual

I’m sure the company that won the food service contract for my cafeteria has a great reputation for service and customer care, but a record on paper means nothing when you have to deal face to face with crappy employees...

Overnight Prints might want to change their name

Overnight Prints is a great name and they did great work for my friend Bill’s business/calling cards, but when I went with a less simple design, even following their exact templates and guides… I wish they’d spent longer than a...

Maybe they all validate parking

Even CEO Can’t Figure Out How Radio Shack Still In Business “I’d like to capitalize on the store’s strong points, but I honestly don’t know what they are,” Day said. “Every location is full of bizarre adapters, random chargers, and...

Why do you want to take pictures of the metro, anyway?

Ah the morning after a night of drinking where you know you’ve narrowly avoided a hangover, but your mouth still feels like sandpaper. Thankfully I had my clothes laid out already, so getting out of the house was no trouble....

A Defected Weekend Ends in Jade

That could have been a prognostication about my March 3-4, 2007 and I wouldn’t have known what the hell it was talking about. It was a Defected Weekend in that I got a lot of new albums from the Defected...

Service me!

Good customer service: 1-800-Flowers. Well, good customer service, bad actual service. In November I used them to send flowers for my mother’s birthday. As usual I was late and had to send it Overnight/Sat. delivery. Also as usual, it’s a...
