Things that p**s you off - post your rants

Dolce Gusto Flat White coffee pods - boxes of 16. Just opened a box and four of the pods are bloody empty!
I'm now going to regularly complain about everything that is below standard and unacceptable to a consumer.
At this time, I have an ongoing mega-mank with Lidl, this new one with Dolce Gusto and I'm just about to drip all over Argos about a crap cordless vacuum cleaner with a battery that don't hold a charge worth a shit.
My new hobby........ dripping like a septic cock.

Lidl icing sugar - brand name 'Belbake'.
Toppers with maggots. Completely ruined WolfPacks baking drawer. Everything had to be ditched.

I love complaining, the more you do the more professional you get at it. If you get messed about by Customer Service write directly to the CEO. Got a full refund from two 12 month old sofas from Furniture Village :) No joy from the store or customer service, spooky once the CEO was informed things happened.

We had a crossing booked with Brittany Ferries (French pukes - spit!) It was cancelled, but they offered us a voucher, for a substantial amount of money. Much to-ing and fro-ing, our main concerns being that we had no idea when or if we'd want to travel and also if Brittany went down the pan.

Eventually my Leader wrote direct to the CEO (who to be fair probably never even saw a whiff of it) but we ended up getting a full refund, so result.

Did I mention French pukes?

Once Brittany ferries cancelled, they refunded, no hassle

I once got shafted by British Airways. Flying 1st class (business trip) to and from Nice. Flight down, no probs, flight back, get to airport 90 min before departure - overbooked. Didn't have to complain, free transfer to SABENA (Nice-Brussels, Brussels-London, 1st class), free voucher for lunch in the best airport restaurant, including booze and a £500 refund. SABENA (Such A Bloody Experience, Never Again) failed to live down to its bad rep - free champagne in the 1st class lounge, get on board, offer of more champagne, said yes, stewardess opened a magnum, spent the flight to Brussels finishing the magnum. More free champagne at the BA lounge at Brussels and again at Heathrow, thank goodness I took a taxi home from Jersey airport when I got there.

Not really seeing where the shafting occurred in that story.

Unless it took place at 30,000 ft, with the trolly dolly AND the bottle?

It disrupted his travel and he was pissed off? didn't cancel with no refund or treat him like crap, but really pissed him off?

Went to jersey once 2005, our 25th wedding anniversary year, went to local shops for bits and bobs, and came back with an holiday to jersey, still not sure we got all the shopping, we went there in January, it was closed. They try to make it feel big, by making you drive really slowly.
