    I have two (so far):

    Capital One

    They fucked me hard on a customer service issue and were complete cunts when I tried to resolve it. This one guy in particular, raising his voice, attitude, wasted all this time with him when a supervisor would have resolved it in 2 minutes. Canceled the card, will never use them again, ever.


    America West Airlines (now US Airways)

    This is in the mid-1990s. I was sitting on a plane, booked, confirmed, ready for take off and this fat ass flight attendant comes waddling down the plane ordering me off. At first I don't move, refuse to give up my seat, but then I realize I'm making a big scene. Up at the gate, she tells me I'm going to have to take a later flight, my ticket was XYZ instead of ABC, blah, blah, blah. All bullshit. Didn't listen to a word I said when I tried to explain my situation. Totally ruined by travel plans because it was only a two-day trip I was taking.

    I wrote a letter to complain and, to their credit, they did give me a decent sized voucher in response, acknowledged they were wrong, etc, so maybe I should forgive and move on, but the way they dragged me off the plane in front of everyone, a plane that was about to take off, when I had a confirmed seat, paid in advance, when it ruined the entire weekend, etc, horrible fuck-you attitude, etc. I decided never to fly them again and haven't since.

    the sad reality is it's not going to make one bit of difference

    the people who run the companies would laugh and would not care in the slightest about these kinds of things because they know that one angry customer doesn't mean shit in the big picture.

    Yes, Wal-Mart. It's a depressing hole of filth that sucks the soul out of you.

    Wal Mart - Bad for economy

    Best Buy - Customer service sucks, companies response to it sucks just as bad

    Democratic party - most corrupt political party ever who is helping the dregs of humanity by paying them to not work, have babies at an alarming work and destroy their and surrounding neighborhoods.

    This proves my 'sad reality' point because Wal-Mart is overflowing with customers. They can't build them fast enough for all these obese toothless red state shoppers.

    Because, in spite of great food (for what they do), great prices and great customer service, the guy who runs the company has a different political belief than yours and therefore should be punished.

    Genius logic.

    Sears.

    Waited a month and a half for a part to a Kenmore electric range that they swore up and down was a Whirlpool.

    (And yes....I know now....Whirlpool builds the Kenmore) but I couldn't convince anyone in their Customer Service until I took a picture of the fucking front of the range, and he could read Kenmore too.
