Consumer Complaints

To non-paper straw users… Why are you so upset when you have to use a paper straw? They’re here to help with the environment. Sure they may get soggy in your drink or have an odd taste but the way they taste or how they hold up in water isn’t why they are made and used--They are here to help reduce the amount of plastic that is around the globe in our trash, our water, and our animals. I work at a fast food restaurant which has a drive through. So naturally, a lot of people order a beverage to go and need a straw to drink said beverage. Recently however, my store switched over to paper straws as a way to reduce the amount of plastic that is used there. Everything was fine with the change… until people who dislike paper straws came in to eat or came through my drive through. It is...

To the various companies and businesses that supply us with food, I first and foremost thank you for providing nourishment and sustenance to mankind; your role in all our daily lives is certainly an important one. We literally couldn’t survive without you. You have evolved and we’re now faced with brighter packaging, advertisements, and more promising products—you’ve changed the game for us all. However, I must admit that not all of your practices sit well with me; there are some aspects that I found to be quite distasteful, especially those that involve marketing. In my English class, we were recently challenged to ask a difficult and uncomfortable question and search for the answer. I asked: are food labels really beneficial for the consumer? Or are they actually for the benefit of...

I am writing on behalf of over 100 individuals who have fallen victim to a scam PayPal company. Despite all of these people raising the issue to PayPal (from around 15/11) and proving beyond doubt that this is fraudulent activity, PayPal are refusing to refund people their money. We will only get part of our money returned, if the received product (not what we have ordered) is sent by tracked mail to the return address on file. The return address was written in Chinese, and when run through an online translator, is for a completely different company - which is therefore also part of the scam. Despite pointing this out, PayPal are still adamant that no one will be paid until paying extra money, to ship the unwanted item to a fake address. Even though PayPal are aware that the...

An Open Letter to John Hanke and Niantic Dear John Hanke and Niantic Staff Members, I will not be long-winded about my own background from my youth up as I have neither the time nor the energy (literally which I’ll explain below), but I will simply give you a synopsis of the situation and the consequences facing your impending action on the shocking news I just heard about your plan to do a massive banning on those who spoof on Pokemon Go. First, allow me to present a very brief background: I started to play Pokemon Go shortly since it’s initial rollout in July of 2016, because my daughter, who is still in grade school, was interested in playing that game. Like most kids, she was enamored with watching Pokemon on TV from her youth up till now and thus she, like most other kids...

A young girl totaled my vehicle. I wasn't given the "fair market value" for my car even after relentlessly arguing with her insurance. Once they told me what they were giving me for the vehicle, they said I only had 3 more days with the rental car. I had very little time to purchase a new car and I didn't even have the money in hand from the insurance company. I found your Jeep Compass listed on Craigslist and it seemed like a decent deal. I came to drive it and had to bring my son with me. You knew I was a single mother without much money and I even had to borrow the money from family. You still sold me the car knowing that it was not worth the $4750 that I paid for it. I didn't have anyone available to come check out the car with me and I couldn't wait another day; I bought this...

To the employee at the Panera in Augusta, Maine who attempted to Mom-Shame me because my four year old had a tantrum, Your open condescension and judgment of my parenting choices was both obvious and unappreciated. The comments made, almost under your breath, to your coworker right in front of me were neither subtle nor appropriate. While I do understand that no one enjoys hearing the screams of a four year old mid-tantrum, any parent would be able to confirm for you that tantrums do in fact happen, many times in public. My situation this afternoon was not unique. Yes, you were correct that my child was loud, disruptive, and poorly behaved. He was also removed from the restaurant once the situation escalated to a tantrum. I took him to the car where the tantrum ran its course....

Dear Nintendo, My name is Miranda. I'm a 35 year old mother to two young boys, and we ALL love Pokemon. We discovered Pokemon Brick Bronze quite by accident; my eldest son had been going on about “Roblox” for ages, so I finally decided to check it out. I made myself an account at the same time as I made his, so I could make sure the content was safe for him and supervise his interactions online. It was during one of these supervised gaming sessions that I discovered Pokemon Brick Bronze; I was hooked from the start! An ex-gamer myself, I soon encouraged him to play. The game is quite complex and requires a lot of strategising and reading to play correctly, so we spent a lot of time playing together. By that time the addiction had spread to my youngest son as well. Fast forward to...

The Crucible is a fictitious story based on real events that occurred in Salem Massachusetts. We know these events as the Salem Witch Trials, which occurred in 1692 and 1693. The story shows how hysteria can spread through a society and normally reasonable people act as a mob without concern for the truth or right and wrong. In act 2 page 52, Miller writes, “the deputy governor promise hangin if they not confess.” The idea that the accused must prove their innocence goes against the most basic principle of due process. Individuals were accused , tried , and executed without any factual evidence presented. While these events are said to have happened before the U.S. Constitution was written, the idea of innocent until proven guilty is a basic principle of civilized societies. As I...
