NSFW: You probably don't want one of these

3 January 2012

We all enjoy the ‘personal touch’ when it comes to customer service – it can make a mundane transaction into one that you’ll remember for years. And that’s certainly what loyal HotUKDeals member eON got when he ordered some batteries from online gadget suppliers I Want One Of Those. Check out these nice little notes from one of their dispatch gurus that came with them. (warning - contains sexual swearwords)

Bit harsh, no? eON says: “I bought 4 packs of batteries in the iwoot sale, £1.99 each using the £2 Matchmakers vouchers making them free... don't know if they didn't like that or what.

"First thought was that they might have been tampered with but no signs of it and the yellow sheets look suspiciously like they might be the backing for the front address stickers. I have written to both I Want One Of Those and Nestle (about the Matchmakers promotion), not had a reply yet but didn't really expect one over the new year.”

We've sent iwoot a rude note on the back of a fag packet, asking them what they think about all of this. We'll let you know what they say.

    Looks like someone just hates there job. I must say I would laugh so hard if I got that in the post, then take advantage of the poor customer service. See if you can get compensated and get more free batteries. :-D

    Nice to see that iwoot appear to employ the educationally challenged as well as the intellectually challenged. I imagine a "herd" is where the perpetrator originates from.

    At least they didn't put apostrophes in "fucks" and "cunts". Minus 5 points for omitting a question mark though. B-

    Good Lord! There's a young lady posting on here, quick, hide the misogynists.

    @Gordon I do hate it when my fucks and cunts are possessive.

    About a year or so a go IWOOT got bought out by a corner-cutting conglomerate who seem to believe that IWOOT could do better than last year, even after cutting 90% of it's staff. Combine that with a poorly paid distribution centre, what would any of us expect?? Not a decent service, that's for sure!

    Alot of places are being bought out or are being merged with partner company's. Take Bensons for beds as an example. They merged with Sleepmasters so thers no Sleepmasters, closed multiple stores makeing alot of people redundant then closed the bensons head office making a lot of people redundant before moving it to the old Sleepmasters head office. There are so many businesses cutting down on staff and still exspecting the same productivity. There's nothing that motivates like loosing half your work mates then being expected to do your job and there's.

    Laura and LMS, that's very very true, but really that's got nothing to do with the service you expect from a company. You are still paying for the service whatever is happening at their end.

    To be honest I'm surprised any of their monkeys can write at all...
  • Daisy
    I used to work there before it got bought out... It's such a shame to see what has happened to such a wonderful brand.

    True kevin which is why i stand by my first comment. "I would laugh so hard if I got that in the post, then take advantage of the poor customer service. See if you can get compensated and get more free batteries." As a customer that is definitely what I would do :-)

    To be fair, you are a cunt eON, you get some illiterate numpty to pack your free batteries, then you complain to your so-called friends on HUKD about your ordeal and then expect some kind of apology or compensation? Twat.
