A Love/Hate Relationship with Consumerist

October 17th, 2008 | Tags: ,

I have a love/hate relationship with Consumerist. I love to read the stories about the little guy who got stepped on finally made whole. I have the fact that 80% of the stories posted are about idiots, by idiots. The postscript to Walmart Employee Hates New Trash Cans, Will Throw Yours If You Set It Near Him really sums it up well:

Ricky, learn to write in paragraphs! With punctuation! Yes, I am wagging my finger at you now! It took me three days to figure out how to edit your story down to a readable level. This isn’t just me being a jackass—you’ll be taken far more seriously by companies if you can make a concise, well-written argument.

People are much less likely to have problems with companies when they are not idiots.
