78 Year Old Dog Rescuer Gets Really Mad!

You gotta love this story. If you're a devotee of the CBS News Sunday Morning program like Parental Unit and I are, you might have already seen this segment. But if not, you're bound to enjoy this video taken from the CBS News website.

Here's what you'll see in this approximately 8 minute segment that was broadcast this past Sunday: a 78 year old woman (with a heart condition, no less) got the run-a-round from her local cable company when she was having problems with her phone service. And, well, she simply took matters into her own hands...along with a hammer! What's the connection to dogs, you ask? She and her husband just happen to rescue ederly dogs:-)

I'm guessing that each of us has put up with poor "customer service" at one time or another, but this lovely woman (our new hero!) decided she wasn't going to take it anymore.

What would you do? Let us know!






P.S. Look forward to lots of product reviews and give-a-ways coming up soon and lasting through the holiday season! I know that Parental Unit promised that for the month of October, but we're just getting things arranged, so please excuse the delay.

Insanely poor customer service seems to be the norm these days, frustratingly enough! Kudos to someone who finally let loose on those morons on the other end of the phone....

Haaa!
That was what my grandma wanted to do today with our phone company's call service!
Grrrr!
Kisses and hugs

Dear Bocci,
Thanks for posting on this important topic. Mama has been on a rant about the rapidly deteriorating customer service here in the past 20 years - since she came to the U.S.

Mark my word, this trend will have to reverse when customers start voting with their feet... and some with a hammer.

Like your social stand, Bocci. Keep up the good bark!

Yes, we saw it!!! (CBS Sunday morning is our favorite TV program.)

Dogdad hides the hammer whenever our Mom has to make those blasted "customer service" calls.

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry
