SevenizGud: The wife and I sent a wreath to my mom for mother day via FTD....or at least we thought we had. We got a call from them today saying the were refunding the money. Turns out, they didn't have any delivery service where my mom lives.Hey, FTD, have you ever thought about maybe, you know, checking to see if you can actually, you know, deliver the order before finalizing it?FARKing turds. Congratulations - now my mom didn't get anything from us on Mother's Day. No goodwill vouchers will ever cover that. Evar./infinite FTD boycott
Vaneshi: The thing is, a lot of people make a great deal of noise about boycotting a business because they're doing something 'wrong' (wrong being a nebulous thing ranging from 'they charge to much' through to 'they killed people'). But they'll go right ahead and buy something else the very same company makes but sold under a different brand and may, in actuality, be made in the very same factory where the other stuff is made. Even when you point out the connection.The very people this app would be aimed at DON'T boycott companies they DO however boycott BRANDS. They'll tell you Coke is the devil whilst swinging their bottle of Dasani.
Thosw: It also happened that the arrangement they were promoting (the one I ordered - nor was it on sale) had tulips in it and the owner said nobody had tulips because they were out of season. When I asked why they were promoting them for Mothers Day anyway, she had no answer. They ended up doubling up on the roses.This was also early in the week prior to Mothers Day, so it wasn't a last minute order, either.
the_rhino: you didn't send a card?
