Hinterland Herb Co. – Worst Customer Service Ever – Avoid this Company

It has come to my attention via my good friend of mine, that a U.S. company called Hinterland Herb Co. have behaved in a truly unbelievable way, after being contacted by her about wishing to buy their organic catnip from their Etsy shop.

When being told the rather steep price of their product, my friend said that she could buy organic catnip from Amazon for a fraction of the price they quoted. After that, Hinterland Herb got really nasty, calling her “cheap” and saying “if your cat chokes and dies on the sawdust they add as filler, or ingests some of the toxic pesticides that is often present on the cheap junk, rest assured in knowing that it is only $40 or so to get a new cat. Good that you saved a few bucks.“, followed by calling her “a lying cat murderer“!

This is totally unbelievable and any company treating potential or existing customers like that should be reported and avoided at all cost!

My friend did some research on the company and could not even find a full address where they are based, nor a phone number, which makes one wonder how legit these people really are. But at least she found the name of the owner is Larry Peters.

Well, Larry… I think you either owe my friend (and whichever other customers you have insulted with your disgusting behaviour) an apology, or you should simply stop trading altogether.  Any company who wants to stay in business, simply does not say nasty things like this to their customers! It’s a sure fire way to shut you down, because know that word gets round very quickly on the internet and social media these days…

Rant about Facebook

<rant>

Warning: Some strong language below, not that I really give a fuck though. 

I have had it up to the fuckin TEETH with people misunderstanding, misinterpreting and misquoting me on Facebook. ONLY on Facebook this ever happens. I have never had a problem with anybody on Twitter or Instagram or YouTube, or the other social media that I use.

facebook-sucksI think it just goes to show what type of people are on Facebook, with their zero attention spans and not reading things properly and making pointless drama out of NOTHING — makes me wonder whether most Facebook users’ IQs are actually lower than people who use more “intelligent” social media options. I think a good comparison to use here would be people who read The Sun (unedcuated, lower or middle working class, narrow-minded) and people who read the Huffington Post (educated, middle or upper working class, open-minded). No, I´m not calling anyone “stupid”. Stupid to me is not an IQ thing. Stupid is when you are a crappy, non-compassionate, non-decent human being, but that is another topic completely. Right now I’m talking about the pointless drama and wasting energy and time on people causing said drama on Facebook.

Getting back to other social media, the amount of times I have heard “I don’t understand Twitter”…  WTF! There’s nothing TO understand! You are just a lazy sod too set in your ways to try and learn new things. For the record, Twitter is extremely easy to learn, it certainly is much simpler than Facebook. Just saying. I am not asking anyone to join me on Twitter – please spare me, and stay on Facebook and continue your drama there without me!

The only reason why I still have a Facebook account is because I am the administrator of various business pages, which is part of my job as a web designer. If not for that, I would long ago have deleted my account — which is what I did with my previous account. I also run a few cat related groups that I’m very fond of, and you’ll still see me in those, but I won’t comment or post much in those anymore either now.

FB get a life

I will not get into ANY MORE pointless arguments or discussions on Facebook, and will not leave any comments or give helpful advice where it´s not asked for (or even if it’s asked for — go, piss off and learn how to Google or pay me for the advice).

I know I have said all this 2 or 3 times before over the last few years, but enough is enough and I’m SICK of it, and unlike most people, I do learn from my past mistakes, so bye-bye Facebook and good riddance.

Barbarella & Kitties on The Doctors TV Show in the US

Cute guy defending me! Love it, haha.

Stuck-up, typical all-American blonde lady: Get a sense of humour! The marriage to my cats is for *fun* and NOT official nor legal, hence totally not relevant in her comparison to same sex marriages.
