“There is no fortune in my cookie”

Posted in ideas.... on March 17, 2010 by theroguetrooper

Di, just recounted a story of writing a letter of complaint to a manufacturer of fortune cookies.  The essence of her letter of complaint was that there was no fortune in her cookie !!!!!  A few days or so later there is a knock at the door from the postman and she has received a complimentary box of fortune cookies.

The moral….

Complain about the foodstuffs and goods you buy. Aways write a letter of compalint or where possible send an email and keep a copy.  I’d say 99% of companies rely on your continued custom and will send you vouchers as a way of apology for a sub-standard product reaching the old supermarket shelf, thereby incurring a cost themselves!!!

Super lets ave it !!!

 Get your complaints flying in to anyone you bought goods or services from lately.  Happy days indeed !!!!!

This is just one little way we create revolution in our everyday lives. 

Nice Mrs B. (Di)

I will endevour to complete a potted history of the band but as I am new to this blog lark and haven’t put pen to paper for years it may take me a while.  Some highlights I can remember include gigs with Blyth Power, Thatcher on Acid, Rubella Ballet, Ausgang, Snuff, Chaos Uk, City Indians, Citizen Fish, RDF, Radio Mongolia, Smart Pils.  Squat Parties at the old peace shop Liverpool and the Jacaranda Liverpool, Animal Rights & Poll Tax benefits, Moreton Free Festival and Wick Tip.

Oh yeah we got a letter once out of the blue from Jello Biafra.  Andy Chapman had interviewed us for Maximum Rock N Roll in the back of a van after a gig in Derby.  Anyways it seems Jello read the interview and sent a money order for the record. His explanation was that he wanted it because he collects self financed DiY records.

Create your own space. Find your groove and walk in it…..
