So I got angry at Capital One

Recommended Posts

It's who they associate with more than anythign else.

That Samuel L Jackson guy  is their spokesperson. He's the one singing songs  in public about the "Racist Poolieeese" (you can google it if you want to hear him sing it ) and has made about a dozen or so other anti American generally horrible & classless public statements.

 So I wrote e; a letter it reads like so:

 

 

Capital One financial company

MARKETING Department

1680 Capital One Drive

McLean, VA 22102-3491

 

Sir / Madam:

 

I was considering adding another credit card to my collection of two cards.

Capital One might have been in contention, but for your spokesman who is overtly America hating, Racist, and  Bigoted.  Your spokesperson offends every decent sensibility I have.

 

So, because of Samuel L Jackson, and your association with him, I will not ever get a capitol one card.  Not now, not in at some future time, not ever.

 

 

 

 

 

Sincerely,

(my name)

 

I did this  once to Audi because of a  TV show that went too far, where they were advertising and Audi actually called me.

 

Marketing people are very sensitive to this sort of thing.

oh yah.  You tell 'em exactly who you are and they take you seriously. The probably have some statistical calculus that informs them that when even one person  troubles himself to put a letter together  and stick it in an envelope and  stamp it that  there  is XYZ number of similarly minded people who won't take the trouble  of writing but will stop spending their money in that direction.

 

After I wrote Audi  they did call me to make sure I was real and then I never saw them advertising on that creep's TV show again.

Of course he lost his show later ( cuz he was such a jerk)  but that's  different.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
