I like to think we do a great service when we write our letters, as we make sure we always provide constructive criticism. For this reason, when I was offered the job of manager of the Wales National Football Team on Football Manager, I felt it would be best to let the head of the Welsh FA, Trefor Lloyd-Hughes, know why I had to turn them down.
It’s not often we receive post about the website that isn’t from someone I’ve complained to myself. So imagine my surprise when I checked what it was about and discovered we had received a complaint…ABOUT US.
I had a moment of shock recently when I visited my local Sainsbury’s to buy a lunchtime £3 meal deal, and found I had actually been charged £4.70. Bruno then had to inform me that if you use the self-service checkout, you have to finish scanning, go to pay, then press go back before the discount is applied. Seems intuitive right? A quick google search has found I am not alone in being caught out by this.
One thing we have learned in our time as super-professional and amazing complaint writers, is that there are pretty much only a handful of companies in the world that control all of the brands we know and love. And all of those companies are controlled by the illuminati. I definitely did not make that last bit up, but I have misplaced the source I had to support my comments.
I don’t know who gets to decide which hobbies are worthwhile – but apparently my hobby of creating fake Facebook profiles and posting stupid comments on groups for selling random household objects is not one of them.
You may have heard that the new England shirt for the world cup is going to be £90. Even famous-for-being-posh-and-rich David Cameron thinks it’s expensive.
It’s not often you get tweeted by a national space agency, so it’s something we felt quite proud of here at Stupid Stuff I Do. For some context, you may want to read our letter to the UK Space Agency, sent from the future.
You may remember we wrote to Chewits to find out if they really sold an ice cream flavour (definitely check it out if you haven’t already). Well, Chewits blew us away with their reply!
You may recall we recently wrote to BIC to let them know our pen had run out. Well we have a reply!
Here at Stupid Stuff I Do towers, we feel it is our job to protect you, the humble consumer. That’s why we’ve written to Marmite to highlight their misleading advertising campaigns. Let’s get this sorted once and for all.
