Why I am never buying another Dell Computer ever again

They will not stop sending catalogs to my house! Despite multiple phone calls, online requests (which they do not make easy unlike other responsible companies who send catalogs), and even sending them a real letter via the U.S. Postal Service for heaven’s sake!

For over two years I have worked on this project, to no avail.

They are dead to me.

(p.s. Yes, I have previously purchased Dells when I was in charge of purchasing computers for a nonprofit. No more, I tell you.)

(p.p.s. This is what happens when you buy a house that was formerly inhabited by college students. They are on ALL the mailing lists.)

(p.p.s. Also, the graffiti they drew in the upstairs hallway will bleed through the shoddy paint job that the house fixer uppers did when they were getting it ready to sell. There is leftover KILZ in the garage, and now we know why they had some left over. They didn’t use it! Someday, if you are very good, I will take pictures of this graffiti and post them on the blog.)

(p.p.p.s. Did I mention we also found an entire pane of broken glass in a flowerbed? And then we found another one? Like, they would break windows and never pick it up, just put a new one in.)

(p.p.p.p.s. I bet the people at Dell would do THE EXACT SAME THING. Bastards.)

    Ditto for me ever joining Facebook. When my mom died someone notified Facebook of her death and they put her account into “memorial status.” Which meant that even with her user ID and password we could not delete her account. E-mails, phone calls, and a US letter send registered mail return-receipt have all failed. We were leery of joining Facebook before this. But when your customer service is non-existent, I’m done.

    ugh – I hate dell sooooo oooh much, luckily I’ve never gotten on their mailing list.

    Although, apparently for like 4 months my parents received Golf magazine addressed to me at home. I do not play golf. I’ve never played golf. I would never dream of getting Golf magazine, what’s the deal with that?

    I’m done with Dell too. Weak shit they make! But it’s affordable which makes it accessible and that’s how they can afford to harangue people with their catalogs.

    I like my IBM laptop that Cody and my other friend Blaize steered me towards.

    I want to see the graffiti too!
