V for Vendetta*

I am all about the revenge, yes i am, especially against family members and giant corporations who screw up and then don't do anything to make it right.

So, because Dollar Rent-A-Car upset Suebob and left her stranded alone at an airport very late at night, i am linking to Suebob's post about their suckiness.

Take
THAT Dollar!


*an excellent movie by the way.

I want you on my side next time I am pissed off at someone...I like the way you enact REVENGE!

I'm TOTALLY about posting corporate suckiness on the internet. I garnered a LOT of lovely support when Bertucci's pissed me off. They're back in my good graces now, but it was a little touch-and-go there for a while.

I'm so sorry, Suebob. I can only IMAGINE your frustration...

I'm done with Dollar and Thrifty. Merciless bastards and crappy vehicles. I've been using Budget lately and haven't been too badly handled- except that I rented a Dodge Caliber. What a rotten thing that is if you are tall or fat (or in my case, both).

meno said...

toni, me too, what does it gain them except much ill will? Jerks!

chani, yeah, don't mess with me sister!

lynn, i don't get mad like that very often, and i have never done anything even remotely similar, but i sure have it in me.

mrs.chili, we use the power that we have. We'll see what happens.

stucco, i pretty much hate all American, and for that matter Japanese cars too, for the size thing. I feel your pain.

Rewenge! Sorry, channeling some Black Adder there.

I try to avoid renting anything, honestly, but I know all too well the pain of being used unmercifully by a big company. Dollar Rent-A-Car doesn't know me now, but they won't have the chance to see the colour of my money ever, after this. The power of these here internets!

Holly said...

I just can't get enough of the fish story. you give me ideas, friend...

Nancy Dancehall said...

Ewwwwww...I read this earlier. Evil! Consider the word spread.

SUEB0B said...

Thanks, Meno. I appreciate it.

Kelly said...

Ummmmmmm...I'm not going to say how I know this as I might be assaulted, but why didn't she call them and ask them where they were? There's usually a courtesy phone somewhere in baggage claim. I mean jeeezz. I certainly would have called before I paid what she paid at Hertz.

Secondly, did she put her flight info. on the reservation so that Dollar would know when she was arriving? She had a late arrival time and those counters do close, unless they know you're coming at a later time.

If in fact she did all of these things and she has her reservation # and print out, and she had tried the inside counter and it was closed, she might be able to get Dollar to pay for all or part of her Hertz rental.

I'm just sayin'!;) Please don't assault me!

meno said...

irrelephant, thanks for the support! I hate rentals too, but sometimes ya gotta.

holly, do tell!!!???!!

nancy, thanks i love a good screw the corporation campaign.

suebob, you're welcome. Anytime. My pleasure.

kelly, these are all good questions and no one will assault you here or i will hunt them down and put a dead fish in their car. Did you read suebob's post? She tried all that.

egan said...

I was kind of wondering the same things Kelly asked. I read her post and got a little confused. Anyways, that had to be a sucky situation.

sari said...

I'm glad to help in the outing of corporate suckiness myself.

Conversely, celebrating corporate goodness, but that's not as often.
