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 piña colada (it's on me!), pull up a chair under yon palm tree, and share it here.

Let's get 'em, Fools!

"Wow" and "Double Wow".

Consider this gushing praise; you are already one of my fav Fools and I recommended this post.

What a tremendous amount of work it must have been for you to put this together!

Thank you very much - it's really helpful and will certainly help any "newbies" to the Board.

Christina, deeply admiring Hunzi's efforts

I just checked out your inedex of revenge. Very impressive!
I was also very surprised to see my posts on my 'messed up move'.
I would like to update that situation at this time.
I lost my fight. The government agencies that were supposed to help me all finally said they could not do anything. If I wanted to get reimbursed for the loss I needed to hire a lawyer and sue. Well, I think I've spent enough time and money on this *#$*& man. I can only look to my faith in " every dog has it's day", to know that some where down the line he will get what is coming to him. I did however let every person in that small town who is my friend, know of this very dishonest and disreputable buisnessman, and I suggessted that they think twice before doing business with him.
As much as I still mourn the loss of some of the things that were in my family for 3 generations, alas they are just 'things' that can be replaced.
Thanks for listening.
Keep up the good work.
Linda
