8/11 - Throw'em the heater
Friday is my day of rest and time to hear about what you hate.
For the second consecutive week the winner is LaRie. Will anyone dethrone him? Iam? Steve? Maiden? EP? the triumphant return of thebill? anyone else i didn't mention? the gauntlet has been laid down.
last week's winning hate:
If you've ever bought a car from a dealership, you might understand what I'm about to say. You fill out a survey when you're at the dealership, right after you buy the car. The salesman slips out of sight, so you can "rate your satisfaction". Alright, that was nice. BUT, it's not over... little do you know that you buying a car has shifted the car survey people into action. They must not give the salesman his money until every last survey is completed. A week after we've had the car, I get a call, AT WORK... requesting a quick survey. I was like, I already gave one at the dealership. Oh, this is different. Oddly, I receive another call from the salesman, hoping that I was COMPLETELY satisfied and told the survey people that. At this point, I'm slightly annoyed, but dropped it.
THEN.. I get a "Official Survey of etc etc" in the mail. I just don't have the energy. If you don't want to fill it out by hand you can call this 800 number. (I guess I'll do this, since they'll keep BOTHERING ME) So, I call.... "We're sorry, this 800 number does not work for your area." WHAT? Aren't 800 numbers national? There's an actual area that is cut off? What?
I just filled the stupid thing out and sent it in.. do you know that I have received a post card "reminding me" to return the survey. HELLO, it's been 2 days. AND THEN... a call... this person got the entire brunt of the hate. I told her that they needed to leave me alone and that I was not longer going to fill out anymore surveys. I thought 3 was enough. She says... "So are you completely satified?" Not anymore... dead air.. click. Haven't heard from them since....
Car surveys I hate you.
