If you make me listen to a sales pitch when I activate my credit card, I’m going to think you’re an ass

Why don’t you thank me for doing business with you for another year?
Why don’t you show some appreciation for my ongoing loyalty?
Why don’t you thank me for the annual fee I just paid you?

    I have a credit card that I have not yet activated for this exact reason–I don’t want to sit through the sales pitch! Ditto for Discover and their constant sales calls during dinner–I already have your credit card and use it, but keep calling me and I will have to cancel.

    Why does McDonald’s use a recorded drive-thru voice to ask me if I want to add something to my order before I’ve even told them what I want. And why would I want to add a shamrock shake to my coffee order no less? And am I supposed to actually reply to the recorded voice as-if it’s a real person? Almost makes me want to get out of my car and just go inside… or drive right by….

    Funny — my brother just went through the exact same thing. “No, I have insurance … No, I don’t care that yours is better …” Heh.
