Annoyed!

It seems this has become my place to “rant” about the minor irritations. This time it’s about thecompanystore.com .

I like this duvet or quilt, quite a lot. Enough that I’d consider buying it, although I have absolutely no need for it.

Except that particular pattern doesn’t seem to be available.

How do people doing marketing and web stores think this does anything other than    PISS OFF THE CUSTOMER???

Yes, it’s pretty. Yes, you have a lot of other items.  None of which I want. I might not spend any $ for this, either. But now of course I won’t, and you’ve wasted my time. I went through all the bedding, quilts, comforters, and duvets looking for this. Why would I look at anything I saw which was interesting from you again???

Come on people, THINK!!!

Dollar Shave Club — Not!

I don’t care if they have the best product at the cheapest price anywhere, ever. We will NEVER buy their products, EVER!

Why? Because they have completely overwhelmed pinterest. Every search you do, no matter wtf it is, they pop up. This isn’t smart advertising to me, it’s annoying. Or it was mildly annoying the first 150 times it happened. It has gotten beyond annoying and I consider it pollution. It’s one of the reasons I stopped using pinterest as much as I had, the annoyance of dollarshave.com’s “ads” that aren’t “ads”. I intend to tell pinterest my reasoning too. I understand people using the site for advertising, but if you put in “food storage” for example, shaving products don’t have a lot to do with it.

Dollar Shave Club just lost themselves a customer, probably several. I refuse to be annoyed into giving someone $. I am a curmugeoness in training and I take my job seriously!

Grrrrrrrrrrrr.
