What if Starbucks Marketed Like the Church

Funny and painfully true. The obvious answer is that most of us would never have heard of Starbucks if they operated the way the church does. (And, no, it’s not a bad thing to operate your church with quality and forethought.)

Dish Diss

This picture is great for this post. I think it’s the same clock they use at Dish Network to schedule customer service appointments. If they used a clock. Actually, if there was one that just had the numbers 8 and 5, that would probably be good enough. But the lack of hands on the clock is completely perfect.

Can you tell I’m not happy with Dish Network?

To be fair, I’m not happy with every large company that has a convoluted phone system, anonymous first-name only operators, and no way to reach someone who has any real information.

“What’s the name and number of the company that will be doing the service call?”
“We don’t have that information.”
“Then how do they know to come? Telepathy?”

Directv and Comcast might be frustrating, too. But Dish stinks.
