When you're parked at the supermarket and just about to leave. The opposing car park space in front of you is empty. Good, you can drive forward rather than reversing out.

 

Suddenly, some person in a big f-off SUV swings around and parks in the space you were going to use to drive forward. The annoying part here is there's a vacant parking space just to the left she could have used instead!

Hate it when other people in supermarket carparks aren't mind readers wink





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Hate it - when your local supermarket blames their downturn in sales on the competition!

 

Customers don't leave until they have a good reason.

 

Don't p*ss your loyal customers off by:

 

Deleting lines such as Davis Gelatine / Craigs Bean Salad with Dressing / Birdseye Standard Oven Chips yet you keep the others in the range / etc

 

Ambiguous special / shelf labeling.

 

Meat that is "off" before being reduced!

 

More small trolleys now than large.

 

Checkouts they can't even pack all of your groceries without using the floor!

 

ABUSIVE beggars at the entrance.

 

I was a "loyal" Countdown shopper since they opened here in Christchurch, but no more!

HRV!

 

Told last week to never enter my property.

 

Today come to the door pretending that we have an appointment!

 

Told to leave.

 

5 mins later get a phone call to confirm a fictitious appointment.

 

Told them they are lying - and got hung up on!

 

Real dodgy sales tactics!

Just sat down and compared power companies, since my contract runs out soon. The annoyance: Three power companies not listing prices on their sites (or, at the very least, hiding them very well). Do they not want customers?

No, they want your bill to work it out, so they have all the information needed to swap you over as soon as you say you will change.

 

"You can change to us and if you're not happy there is no contract!" - "Ok" - boom, changed power company.

When you get an automated response:

 

" Thank you for contacting us. We are currently experiencing high email volume. Your email is important to us and one of our representatives will answer you as soon as possible."

 

...and hours later still nothing.

And when they do reply its a stock template, not appropriate for the question and they suggest ringing them.

...and when I tried that I was 8th in the queue and after 10 minutes on hold was still 7th in the queue!

 

Yeah Right the customer matters!

Dumb laws.

 

 

 

Such as the one that allows me to own a machine gun but does not allow me to actually fire it...!
