boycott.

now i have a confession i used to easily decide to have a cause.. i would want to boycott certain corporations for things they do.. like a few years ago I boycotted Starbucks.. or my short lived Nestle boycott. I mean I defintly always have good intentions but with Starbucks those red cups at christmas a couple years back called to me and the smell of a vanilla late or a london fog forced me back in the store.. or when Nestle sent me that backpack with lots of freebees and not to mention for awhile when i was using bottles I had bought Avent bottles without knowing Avent is owned by Nestle so that was shot. but friends have no fear I have found a new boycott that will surely stick. I have now boycotted Canadian Tire. I had the worst consumer experience I could have ever imagined and as I left in tears after being treated so horribly I know that I can never go back.
in other news I was looking at the counter on my blog and am amazed that over 20,000 people have viewed my blog. please keep coming back.. there will be pics posted again soon for all of you who want to see the boys.. we have been busy with Christmas approaching it seems there is always somthing to do...

I totally understand. I boycotted Wal-mart for months, I had a horrible experience in the Winkler store, they manager was running after me and my friend as we walked out the store and he was yelling at us, it was horrible. So my advice, boycott as long as possible ;) I must say though C. Tire in Wink has HORRIBLE customer service.

It's about time someone stood up and boycotted Canadian Tire! That store makes me cringe. I'm with ya Heather. The prices are high, the service is poor, and I may as well go to Wal-Mart.

Tell me about it! the CT store here in town is so so bad for there customer service.. i hate going there cause i know its just going to be so bad. i have even talked to the manager and that went no where... the reason why there is no customer service is cause the people that work it only get paid minuim wage... and here that is only $7.75 ouch.. that's the only thing i can up up with on why there are so poor at service..
but i know what it like and how you feel, don't you think somthing should be done about it like a letter to the company or a phone call? but when i thought of that maybe it is bad service thought out the whole company..
i don't know sorry i'm just letting it all out i have BIG issues with CT!

I couldn't imagine boycotting Starbucks...it's like home every time I walk in there. AND they make the BEST London Fogs in the city...my advice to you is to always order the Venti...because no matter what size of tea misto you order it's the same price!

hey heather.
Hey you got a van that's so cool - and "parenty!". I love it

I used to have boycotts too...I've found that I'm too lazy for that...but I can't stand poor service, so therefore I have your back.

I can't believe you've had like 20,000 hits...that's incredible. Amazing to think that you are full time mom with twins, and you are still touching many peoples lives...by just being you.
wow - how cool blog ministry...he he he
