May 20, 2004 Tom Tsounis, Store Manager Plattsburgh Price Chopper Supermarket 475 State Route 3 Plattsburgh, NY 12901 Dear Sir or Madam: I wish to complain specifically in regards to a package of glazed buffalo wings. You see, my friends and I find your wings to be the freshest, and highest of quality, which makes them a very good value for our dollar.  The package stated that it contained 12 pieces of wings.  So, since we were having a party at my residence, I picked up two packages, one of glazed wings, and one of buffalo wings, in addition to two other incidentals that I needed for my refrigerator....

April 22, 2004 Reference: Dairy Queen® Brazier® 359 Cornelia Street Plattsburgh, NY 12901-2211 US 518.561.1711 American Dairy Queen Corporation 7505 Metro Blvd Edina, MN 55439 To Whom It May Concern: I wish to relate to you an experience I had at Dairy Queen this evening that was just plain awful. I visited the drive-through with my girlfriend around 8 PM this evening and ordered ice cream. My girlfriend had a small DQ Blizzard with Peanut Butter Cup and I had a medium DQ strawberry milk shake. Much to my surprise, the price of two medium ice cream treats came out to $7.75. Of course,...

Doritos

March 16, 2004 Reference: Doritos Cool Ranch Chips Frito-Lay Consumer Affairs P.O. Box 660634 Dallas, Texas 75266-0634 I wish to complain about not getting a full ounce of Doritos Cool Ranch chips despite the packaging that clearly states, “Net Wt. 13.5 OZ”. I have been a huge fan of Doritos since I can remember.  Recently I went to a local supermarket, and purchased several large 13.5 ounce bags of cool ranch chips and upon opening the last bag, which is the bag I’m writing about, I got nothing but a big faceful of air, and only half of the chips I was accustomed to. And trust me, I was in such...

T&A

March 3, 2004 Tanimura & Antle Headquarters P.O. Box 4070 Salinas, CA 93912 Dear T&A: I recently purchased a 5-pound bag of shredded lettuce from a local wholesale club for $5.00.  Unfortunately, I was not able to finish the entire 5 pounds. In fact, even with our using the lettuce as an addition for every possible meal, including sandwiches, salads, subs, soups, etc., we only finished about half the bag, leaving us with roughly 2 ½ pounds of unused product which we were forced to add to our compost pile.  We consider this wasteful and unnecessary as we have spent $2.50 on product...

March 2, 2004 LEGO Education Division Development And Research 113 North Maple Street Enfield, CT 06083 I wish to complain in regards to your entire product line in general.  My situation is simple; I live an upper middle class existence, I work about 40 hours per week, drive a pre-owned car, own a small house with a lawnmower and a white picket fence. Nothing out of the ordinary (I just wanted to make this clear that I am just your average guy). My situation is as follows; recently I purchased one of your Lego sets after seeing that commercial you guys always play on television.  You know...

Mr. & Mrs. Thomas Wilson Pratt Slatin February 17, 2004 American Kennel Club 5580 Centerview Drive Raleigh, North Carolina 27606-3390 Dear Sir or Madam: It was with great enthusiasm that the postman delivered your correspondence in regards to our dachshund’s induction into the American Kennel Club. My wife and I were so overwhelmed with the good news that we hastily opened the envelope only to discover a very disheartening and critical error on the certificate. Needless to mention that it was to our complete and total horror and disappointment that the certificate noted that...

February 17, 2004 Wendy's International, Inc. 4288 West Dublin-Granville Road Dublin, Ohio 43017 I am writing to you because I feel that I need to address a particular situation that occurred at one of your chain restaurants.  You see, ever since I had a traumatic injury as a child which involved crashing head-first into a stainless steel sided dishwasher while peddling my very first tricycle, I have had a phobia of shiny silver colored objects. Recently, I went for a bacon cheeseburger at one of your stores and when I received my food, to my horror and dismay, it was wrapped in some sort...

Recently, I purchased one of these said containers of frozen yogurt expecting it to taste just like that of the highest quality every other hood product delivers. Unfortunately, when I scooped the frozen yogurt and served it to my fiancé, she immediately told me that...
