If I'm in line behind someone who is being loud and obnoxious I'll pretend they're speaking to me and start responding to everything they say...I have a friend who'll pull out a little notebook and stare at them intensely while scribbling notes after everything they say, he'll even repeat some of what they say while he's doing it...quite funny actually...

On the flip side of that my 2 year old nephew ADORES the Disney Tinkerbell movies (he pays almost no attention to any other movie or tv show but on a hunch I put on Tink one day and he sat down and watched it from beginning to end, and repeated the behaviour with all of the other ones.) I wanted to get him his own carry around copy of "Secret of the Wings" (his favourite) so me and wife (both of us are women) go to buy the dvd/bluray. While in line (holding hands of course) we are discussing his love of all things Tink and we got lectured by not just TWO other people in line but also the cashier! Apparently we are TRYING to turn him gay with fairy movies. (My theory on his devotion is that disney does girl movies better than boy movies. Better dialogue, music, and colors. Prettier)

1.) We are not a government agency. 2.) Complaints are handled by the Better Business Bureau office in the area where the company is based. 3.) The BBB is not a consumer watchdog. 4.) The BBB doesn’t process employee/employer complaints. 5.) The Better Business Bureau will celebrate our 100th birthday in 2012. In case you did know all that, my apologies. You get a gold star! Let’s discuss the facts in more detail. 1) The BBB is a non-profit organization with a mission of increasing trust in the marketplace. Sometimes people think we can “shut down” bad companies—we can’t, not directly. Companies receiving a plethora of complaints or a serious pattern are referred to state Attorney Generals and the Federal Trade Commission for this type of action. 2) When you file a complaint, whether you live in Helena, Montana, or Fairbanks, Alaska, your local BBB office will not be handling your complaint if the company you did business with is located in Tucson. The BBB serving that part of Arizonais the one that would handle your complaint. Confusing? Not really. Just go to www.bbb.org to file, and the computer will automatically route your complaint to the right place. Or, call your local office and they’ll direct you. 3) While the BBB does provide many consumer services, like warning you about scams, we provide just as many business services. We are a business organization serving companies and customers alike. We are supported by dues from our Accredited Businesses. 4) The BBB receives many calls from people who are upset about the way a company treats its employees. The BBB does not get involved in these legal issues. The proper agency to file these types of complaints with is your state’s Department of Labor & Industries. 5) The BBB was started in 1912 as an advertising watchdog group, and has evolved steadily into the BBB we know today!
