Ok, so I've been on a mission to stop supporting any type of business which I consider useless, unethical, ridiculous, arrogant, fraudulent etc. This is cool and I always believed that the best way is to vote with your feet, and use those feet to take your money elsewhere. But.... of late i've been finding that I'm running out of options. Despite being on a one man tirade against "bad service" (and this includes everyone's definitions of this), I'm starting to realise that all hope may have gone.
From my own experience and from sites like Hellopeter.com and forums like these, there just doesn't seem to be any type of "ethical" businesses out there anymore. Now I realise that using the word ethical and business in the same sentance is a bit naive, but then lets just say that plain good old customer service, quality products, great value type businesses that offer these to try and be the best and own the largest market share, simply doesn't exist anymore.
If I'm fed up with my bank, and I go to the next one, they simply just do the same thing at a different time in a different way. If my cellphone provider sucks and I try to port, I get stuck with a bunch of problems on the other one, If my Supermarket gives me bad service and I go to the next one, I end up paying twice as much and pretty much end up getting the same bad service... so it goes on. So what the hell are we suppose to do??? Is this just pretty much what we will be stuck with forever!
It's starting to feel like SSDD (same **** different day) or rather SSDP (same **** different place) is all that is left for us????? So in essance, voting with your feet simply doesn't work anymore
How do we fix it??
