Monday Morning Reader Round-Up

We love good emails. Some weeks, we barely get them, but lately, the signal-to-noise ratio has been high. And we can’t thank you enough for it.

The bottom line is we can’t be everywhere. What this site dwells upon most is the one-on-one interaction between large corporations and the individual customer. But most of the time, that’s not the sort of interaction we can be part of first-hand. We have to be a third party, and that means you need to tell us what’s going wrong and what’s going right.

Last week, readers pointed out Walmart broiling babies and Sears’ reneg of a debt agreement. They told us about IDT salesmen telling elderly old men they would have to go to jail if they didn’t switch energy providers. They complained about Jiffy Lube destroying their cars; the eerie grins of obsequious idiots at Backyard Burger.

We always need these stories. We need to hear from you. So if you’ve got something you think needs to be posted on this site, mail us and tell us to post it. If it’s good, we will.

Likewise, if you’ve got suggestions or complains, let us know about them? Want commenting access? Mail us. Or wait until Wednesday, when we’ll be giving them out in real-time again in our Campfire chat room.
