Cheaters

When was the last time you feel like someone (individual or company) cheated you and how did they do it.....briefly stated....?

This is how you feel, not slander, and how it happened or was over...

Come on, a seller never attempted to inflate rents? You never went through a drive-thru and got a half a bag of fries? Your girl/boy friend was always true? All sellers disclose everything? You never paid an origination fee for a loan and ended up not getting the loan?

Just last night I ordered a double steakburger with lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion. I got a bun with two pieces of meat, dry! I told the waiter and he brought a plate with one piece of onion one string of a slice, a tomato missing the center, half a pickle and two inches of a lettuce stem. I already had taken a bit of it so I didn't send it back, but it's the last time I go there.

I manage to get cheated a lot it seems.

The two most recent:
Old cell carrier - spr*nt. I cancelled my account and somehow had the last bill, for 30 days of service balloon to $400 from it's previous monthly fee of about $130. This had nothing to do with early disconnection fees.
I was able to get it sorted out after posting on their facebook wall and getting a specialist to contact me. Bunch of donkeys they are.

Then, there was another communications company, A*&T. We recently signed up for highspeed internet with them. The salesperson was trying really hard to sell me on a faster dsl speed, which I consistently refused. Our bill was supposed to be $15 a month for the 1st 12 months. Ended up being $27 - the price of the higher speed he was trying so hard to shove down my throat.
Same resolution approach, posted on their facebook wall and someone in Oklahoma called me and expressed that it was somehow an "honest mistake" and took care of it.

I have to deal with too many things like this quite frequently.

I recently listed on the MLS a property we picked up to do owner financing, but we needed the cash out now.

We get an offer from an investor through his agent for $35k. After the contract was executed, he calls us directly and tells us he is willing to pay $30k if we will owner finance it for a year.

My guess is we will take his $500 earnest money and he will get nothing.

Maybe you should buy a 30 pack next time and see if you have the same problem Will Barnard

But you only notice that half way through your stock! How do they do that?

I don't know, but I'm aiming to find out. Heading out to investigate the case.

While we are on beer, a bunch of us went to a sports bar for a Cards game. Pitchers were 6 bucks and drafts were 2 bucks each. Well, being the expert pitcher drinkers we are, knowing there are 4 16 oz glasses to a pitcher, we order the pitcher. When we got it, the pitcher wasn't full and a polite inquiry was made. We were informed that a pitcher has only 3 glasses in it, not 4. So we took 4 glasses and emptied on pitcher and got 3 and a half glasses and showed it to the little gal, and she says you guys got more than you were supposed to!
So we asked, what the advantage of getting a pitcher and drinking warm beer? She had no idea....
Seems like every where you go, the main objective in business is cheating the other guy......

BTW, Most places use the same pitcher as they are provided by the beer distributor and when topped off, there are 4 glasses to a 64oz pitcher around here...LOL

Went to a drive thru, ordered food for the whole family. Drove away and realized they forgot a fry, so I went back to the speaker and told them. They said "ok, just pull around". So when I pull up, no apology no nothing just a bag shoved out the window and some jackwagon with a headset mumbled "here".

So I make the mistake of pulling away without looking again. I mean come on, what person can't remember to put some fries in a bag that they forgot the first time? Well this Einstein must have came up short on being employee of the month, because instead of my missing fries there was a burger in the bag.

So I pull around to the speaker again (mind you, no one else has gone through the line this whole time except me), and hear the familiar what can I get you to eat yada yada. All I said was "its me, I am coming around". Before he could say anything I gave him the bag and told him I want my fries I ordered the first time. When he finally gave me the fries I just sat there. He kept looking at me and asked real smart *** "what"? I told him I was waiting for the apology that I should have gotten the first time they screwed up.

At this point the manager must have realized I was about ready to hop through the window and choke some sense into the twerp, because he came over and gave me a full refund, an apology, and a gift certificate.

So we asked, what the advantage of getting a pitcher and drinking warm beer?

Bill: around here that's called operator error....if your beer gets warm you're drinking too slow
