Index of Revenge

Firstly, what is this board?

The merry Islanders of Aruba's Isle of Revenge like to talk. I mean they really like to talk. Oh and there are all those puns Tony makes, it's enough to make anyone scream for revenge. Sometimes it can be hard for new Fools to figure out the purpose for this board. Hopefully this index will help Fools looking to fight back with solutions to Consumer and or Customer Service difficulties.

Here's what Tony (or was that TMF Twitty?) had to say in post numero uno:

But, what IS "so" is that this is a board where Fools can post about the things that annoy them. Ever been ripped off by a car repair shop? Has your contractor run away to South America with your deposit for the new rec room? Have you ever tried to return something and been turned away? And what about the damage that shopping cart did to your car--who should pay for that?

Of course! We've all had Consumer horror stories, and this is the place to post 'em. Personally, when I feel like someone's taken me for a fool (small 'f'), it becomes a personal crusade (snort! grunt!). One, which I'll discuss in a future post, was *my* ordeal with a shopping cart, and the store that tried to tell me to take a walk. Ha!

By sharing the stories we've solved, we'll be able to help other Fools find ways to solve theirs. The goal here is to be able to become empowered to "fight back" when we've felt taken advantage of, through Foolish suggestions, thoughts, and ideas.

So, think you're being ripped off? Got a story where your Foolish persistence has won over the battles of evil? Then welcome to Aruba's Isle of Revenge. Just order another piƱa colada (it's on me!), pull up a chair under yon palm tree, and share it here.

Let's get 'em, Fools!
