I do not understand why my mom continues to take our dry cleaning to the sanitary cleaners around the corner from our house. We've had many bad experiences, but this one takes the cake. I'm sure we won't be going back after this...except for going back to wreak some havoc.

Previous bad experience ('ve experienced personally) is when I sent in two sweaters, and I swear to you they just tacked on a "Sorry, some stains could not be removed" tag and gave it right back to us. They didn't even TRY. Not to mention the sweaters both smelled like cat pee (though they didn't have pee on them..just the aroma..its a long story) and STILL smelled when I got them back. My mom raised some hell, they took em back, and miraculously they were able to get the stains AND the smell off the sweaters. Wow! See whats happens when you actauly TRY.

My mom dropped off my winter coat there quite a while ago. It was a little dirty, but mostly it was hanging in the closet that houses the cat food all spring, summer, and fall. So it smelled heavily of cat food. She kept forgetting to pick it up, and seeing as it snowed like a foot in about 9 hours this week, I thought I should probably go get it out. I get it, first thing I do is take a big whiff...smelled nice and clean! Yay! So I go home, pleased. The weather warmed up, and the snow melted so I never needed to wear it. I just put it in the my bedroom and went about the rest of my thankgiving break happily. But of course, when I got back to school tonight(and hour and a half away) I notice the damage. It looks as if they took they took a chain saw to the hem. There are all kinds of snags and holes along the bottom hem. 3 holes exactly, 2 big enough for my to put my hand through. I just got this coat last christmas. It has not be used so heavily for the nylon to be ripped. Its not even a cheap coat! Its a Nine West coat! Not even a year old! Of course I noticed this at school, when I'm not gonna be back home for another 3 weeks. Pisses me off....

Shake it up

On Wednesday, I stopped at the McDonalds on High Street to use the bathroom and to grab a drink. I ordered a small chocolate shake. I'm pretty sure that I was overcharged (does $2.73 sound right to you?) but they didn't have the full menu up and I am not a big McDonald's fan.

Anyways, the girl/woman/....person behind the counter put the ice cream in the cup, put in a shot of chocolate syrup, slapped a lid on the whole thing and handed it to me. Without blending it. I watched her do all this and handed the cup back to her, asking if she could mix it, please. She glared at me and... handed me a spoon.

Now my co-workers are telling me to write McDonalds and report her, but I'm not sure I should even bother. I'm not a McDonald's customer normally - I only went there because my other option was Home Depot.

But come on, a spoon??

I am SO happy I found this community..

About 4 months ago my boyfriend and I decided to crack and get some cell phones, we paid $200 for each of our phones and went on a $45/month deal which allowed us free calling anytime/anywhere. Little did we know that Fido is full of cocksucking little bastards who don't know shit.

Fast forward to signing up - we specificially asked if there would be a security deposit if we put both the phones in my boyfriends name - we were told no - fast forward to first months bill..

I open the bill, and my jaw drops. The bill was for $900!!!! As you can imagine.. I choked a little, called my boyfriend and FREAKED. He told me to call Fido and see what they would tell me..

So I call...I get some new person I guess who tells me that my boyfriends credit rating was "BlahBlah" or whatever and we should not have been charged any deposits. I then get disconnected and have to call back, I get some holier than thou guy who proceeds to tell me that the girl before him was going to be fired for giving out the credit rating. He then advises me that infact - ONE - of the deposits was their error but we were still being charged for the second one - I said and I quote "You have to be fucking kidding me. Fine, PUT MY PHONE IN MY NAME". No where did I say "CANCEL OUR SERVICE". So...he puts my phone in my name. Says the $500 was reversed.

Over the next three weeks, we get text message after text message telling us that we owe them $700 still.

I had to call them EVERYDAY for those three weeks, every god damn day.

Here's where it gets good though!

Next months bill arrives - $1200! Not only did they NOT reverse the charges, but they tacked on another $400 in cancellation fees!

During this time, pretty much everytime I called them, I asked to speak to a supervisor - I'll admit I was a pretty sucky customer, but I was fucking PISSED about this not being resolved quickly. And not ONE single Agent would transfer me, I kept getting "Their in meetings" or "Im sorry we aren't authorized to transfer you".

FINALLY...Close to four weeks later, I speak to a supervisor and by this point.. I'm beyond furious and I want some sort of credit or something for the hassle I've had - she offers me free call display and voice mail for ONE month.. on ONE phone. So thats about...$7.

Needless to say, we cancelled our two year contracts, contacted a lawyer and switched to a different cell phone company.
