XFACTOR is AWFUL

I love talent shows. Why do we have to sit and listen to all the drivel and hype and be spoon fed opinions from talentless know it all judges. I want to listen to the acts they should be heard. So I don't watch any more. Change the format before you kill Simon Cowels Golden Goose. Who do the judges think they are. Do they really think we are stupid enough to believe these judges know what they are talking about. I and others with no musical experience can pick the talent with a lot more creditability than these judges.

Lets have a talent show for judges and see how far these four go.

BRAINWASHED BRAINWASHING

If the adverts don't work they won't advertise.

Then no more company and no more brainwashing.

How dare they interfere with my brain. It is a disgrace.

I take great umbridge to being subjected to these awful television adverts that are only there to imprint those numbers into your brain at the exclusion of other good companies that cant afford the advertising.

We were meant to have free competitive companies but this company have successfully killed of the opposition. Now we pay for an over priced service that should be free.

VIRGIN ON AWFUL

Dreadful company to deal with. Poor after sales, Badly written contracts designed to mislead and hide the pitfalls. Misleading advertising. Dont know anyone who has a good experience. Mine was not a good one and would never use again.

Good Old Auntie

Love the BEEB. They tend to be very right wing although pretending to be neutral. We need more good plays and Drama. The ones they do put on are all first class. And none of those dreadful brainwashing 118 adverts. See how I have been brainwashed it's the only number that I can think of now. Even tried entering it as a card pin the otherday. Entered it 3 time and lost my card.

Time Wasters

I hate the email tricks they play. Sending out offers of free business cards which turn out not to be free after all.

BOYS TOYS GREAT

Always good for me. Great for browsing and normally find something interesting to Buy. Good return policy. Cant go to far wrong here. Most of the staff are helpful, although they can be very cocky and think they know everything and they definitely don't.

Ebuyer.com

No better than Feebay

Disappointed was looking for an alternative to Ebay but this one is worse.

WASTE OF TIME

Dominos

MAKES FOXES ILL

Throw them in the bin not out of the car window. Foxes and birds get run over and killed trying to eat them. Better still don't buy them. Save your money for something edible.

Rubbish

Not worth the bother

"PCWO" Thats my name for "PCWORLD"

Yes that's what the sign said on New Years Day at Poole branch when I was taking my non working newly purchased Laptop back and that is exactly what my experience of their after sales service became. WO for me and WOW for them. Playing ping pong with a laptop. In the end I gave up trying to get them to admit it was faulty and paid for a repair elsewhere.

The last place you should ever shop in. The Laptops might look the same as you buy elsewhere but inside they are built with substandard parts. BEWARE GO ELSEWHERE

Ebay

FEEPAY MEANPAY GREEDEBAY "EBAY"

No Christmas spirit from them. No free listings this month. They now take 20% of your money. The poor that sell the poor that pay. One bad customer and your reputation is ruined. Buyers get protection. Sellers get none. Sellers pay the fee. Buyers pay none. Sellers sell none. Buyers buy none. Ebay gets none.

Perhaps then they will review their fee's

Aldi

"BEWARE" Not Cheap Any More "CAUTION"

They used to be cheap and good value. Went there recently intending to fill my shopping basket with all the items they sold cheaper than Tesco's. Not any more though. Came out with only 3 items and then found cheaper equivalent at Tesco. I was amazed as in the past you could fill your basket with gay abandon. I think they are now trading on that reputation and joining the band wagon of rising supermarket prices which are catching people out because we seem to just accept that prices have gone up everywhere. Well they have gone up a lot at Aldi and far more than the others.

I call this sharp practice and have no confidence to shop there any more. Sainsbury's or tesco's for me from now on.

STARTED OFF WELL BUT HAS NOW LOST IT'S WAY

This site started off with very well meaning intentions but as time has gone I feel this site is of little value now. Developed into a cash cow portal for Martin Lewis's entrepreneurial ambitions. The content has very little meaningful value and it is not possible to influence this by way of dialogue. Martin is far to busy for that.

Searching for answers to real problems results in no practical advice of substance.

Parcel2go

Parcel2Go "AVOID" AVOID "AVOID" Parcel2Go

FINE TILL THEY LOSE A PARCEL.

THEN THE NIGHTMARE BEGINS.

I WILL NEVER USE AGAIN 6 DAYS ON LIVE CHAT GETTING NOTHING BUT APPEASEMENT AND LIES. THEY EVEN APOLOGISED FOR LYING. WHAT A CHEEK.

LOST OUT BIG TIME.

NEVER AGAIN

As an update I have now been contacted by [Name] by phone at Parcel2go and given a full refund. She was very apologetic and I am going to use Parcel2go again but definitely not Hermes.

[Name] SAID PARCEL2GO ARE CARRYING OUT A FULL INVESTIGATION AND IF THEY FIND THE PARCEL AS WELL AS THE REFUND THEY WILL SEND THE PARCEL BACK AS WELL. THIS WOULD BE A GOOD OUTCOME AND I WILL THEN REMOVE THIS REVIEW AND WRITE A NEW REVIEW THAT REFLECTS AN EXCELLENT COMPANY THAT ACTS IN AN HONOURABLE AND ETHICAL WAY.

For any future problems that are not resolved with Live chat I would recommend mailing direct to [Private Data] in customer services, or speaking to her by phoning [Private Data] this may cost 10p per minute.

Hermes "AVOID" AVOID "AVOID" Hermes

Used this company many times without to much bother. i got lulled into a false sense of security.

Now they have lost my parcel and I am out of pocket, lost a good customer got bad feedback spent 6 days so far trying to sort out. Customer services is a complete wind up.

If you think Hermes is bad try booking through Parcel2go. Now that is the biggest wind up I have ever had.

One bad experience with either of these companies will fill you with enough hatred to last a lifetime.

Don't think "it will not happen to me" because it will. Then you also will experience the nightmare and no what I mean.

I wish I had paid the extra and gone elsewhere.

Don't get caught out.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

As an update I have now been contacted by Jenny Bowles by phone at Parcel2go and given a full refund. She was very apologetic and I am going to use Parcel2go again but definitely not Hermes.

For any future problems that are not resolved with Live chat I would recommend mailing direct to j.bowles@parcel2go.com in customer services, or speaking to her by phoning 0871 3308066 this may cost 10p per minute.
