The Consumerist doesn’t write itself. Booze does. And when booze fails, under the murderous unblinking gaze of grim sobriety, reader tips takes the yokes off of our trembling shoulders and helps pull the site along.
Look, we’ll admit it: we can’t do this site without you. It’s the small stories, the one-on-one interactions with companies, that entertain and amuse, because they’re relatable. When it gets big enough to be an issue that affects tens of thousands, that’s when we stop caring as much, because it happens to a faceless crowd. But that one consumer getting red in the face, hammering his fist down in murderous rage as spittle flies from his lower lips? That’s just good reading.
So if you want to rage, mail us! We take anything: links, tips, complaints, comments, criticisms, naked pictures of lascivious female readers. Hit the jump for the stories we posted from you guys last week.
