Men who won't allow their mate to deal with a thumb they have tried to remove accidentally with an axe... and then acting like small children when "mummy" tries to fix said thumb removal, and fight tooth and nail hahaha about the Needed tetanus shot are an abomination unto Nuggan.

I get sick of trying to remember passwords.

Retailers that force you to create accounts in order to buy something from them are an Abomination unto Nuggan.

Signing on to the credit card account and it asks me some security questions. It knows my first pets name, where I lived at age of 10 and mothers maiden name. SO WHY IS ASKING MY BEST FRIENDS SURNAME :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

If pushy retailers insist on emails etc when you buy stuff from them I just smile & write down the wrong email. They aren't gonna refuse your sale when you're standing there with money in your hand, no matter what they try and pitch at you.

What I hate most is the rewards cards most shops have, the retailer looks at you like you're mad if you say 'no thanks' when they ask you if you want one.

Usual conversation for me;

Retailer - Have you got our rewards card?
Me - No.
Retailer- You'd receive 10% off your next purchase if you have our rewards card.
me - Yeah? That's nice.
Retailer- So you'd like our rewards card?
Me - No. And don't eyeball me.

I'll try that next time! Gimme 85% off this crap & I'll tell you all my personal information.

That'll work won't it?

Actually, I don't get too worked up about it. They're usually school kids working in the shops anyway. I'd never give a kid a hard time.

I agree totally with this. The casino I work for have just adopted a reward card system based upon how long the customer plays for and their average bet. It also keeps track of what games they play and what they eat and drink while there, so special offers can be geared to the specific individual. It also allows for points to be converted into 'cash' that can be played on the slot machines. All this is designed to make the customers play for longer and spend more rather than just reward them for their 'loyalty'. (Incidentally, although you can put cash into the slot machine, you need a card to take out your winnings when you finish playing.) Nowadays, my job is more about paperwork and player tracking (the information still has to be manually entered by us on the table games) than being a croupier; I feel like a glorified book-keeper! :evil:

Yep! Initially, reward cards appeared to be for the benefit of the customers. Now we know where they were going and it's unnerving (see 'Tesco face scanning' thread also). It's almost as though the ideas were there and the technology is now catching up :?
BT are an A unto N! When I try to log into my account they ask my security question which is the month and year of birth of my oldest sibling. I give them the answer and it is incorrect :shock: My ONLY sibling is my brother. How could my answer be wrong? Maybe i should put this on the Frustration thread :doh:

I work in clothing retail and we have a target to work to and if we don't meet this target we get a 30 minute disciplinary on why we can't do our job roles and how it affects the company and if a person consistently fails to meet this target the person puts his/her job at risk we can't afford to think about how customer might feel about giving us his/her email address and for each bogus email we receive we get disciplined for wasting company time and have our targets doubled to make up for the amount of bogus emails given us so what catchup said about giving away misleading information please DON'T we get in the neck enough from both managers and customers and it's only going to get worse I am not joking
