It’s nice to know people still care about customer service.
There’s a lot of things that don’t make much sense about Ocean Marketing’s PR campaign to make themselves (or himself as it may be) seem like the douchiest people (person) on the planet, but the vague name-dropping mechanism is the weirdest part for me.
Actually, I should scratch that. The entire ordeal is ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. When I worked at McDonalds and a customer treated me like a pile of shit, which is to say that when I worked at McDonalds any day period, I did not interrupt their angry ramblings to inform them that I, in fact, know the Ghost of Hammurabi so therefore you should shut your damn whore mouth and buy my product.
I understand that the people you know can get you to high places and possibly get your sweet-ass business started, but when it comes to maintaining and running your business I’m pretty sure those people are not willing to support your utter failure. To test the entire gaming community by saying “Come on. I dare you. You don’t have the stones to not buy my shit” you must either have millions stored in your bank or just be the dumbest person alive.
I’m banking on this guy being the latter. I think someone tried to make him see the light as he attempted to employ Fisher Price’s My First Apology by asking Mike Krahulik (aka Gabe) from Penny Arcade to “see where he’s coming from.”
I’m pretty sure we all saw where you were coming from. You just came back from a two week long trip from Douchetopia and you still haven’t been able to shake off their native customs of being absolute douchebags. That happened to me too when I went to Aruba. All of a sudden I wanted to overcharge people for mundane piece of shit items. I can empathize.
My point? It doesn’t matter how many people you know, because when you shit all over your customers they aren’t going to buy your shit. Dave is an anomaly in that he is still willing to not ask for an immediate refund. He really wants his product, which is a damn shame because that means money has been wasted supporting the devil.
