Hows it goin?
Someone asked me the other day about my blog and more specifically about the stupid letters I write. Well I thought I'd give a bit of an explanation. I have explained it before, but lately the amount of people reading this has more than doubled, so this is just so new readers can keep up.
It all started about 6 months ago. I was living in Edinburgh at the time and I was traveling to Aberdeen to attend Marks Stag Do. I was forced to take the bus and the journey was horrific. During the incredibly delayed trip I got my laptop out and wrote a letter to the bus company.
When I got home I was still raging from my incredibly crappy bus trip. I sent the letter to the bus company Headquarters and had a battle of wits with the Operations Manager Bob. I only posted one letter to Bob and the rest of our interchange was via email. To send that first letter I had to buy an envelope, but I couldn't find only one envelope, I had to buy a pack of 50.
It would just be stupid to let all those envelopes go to waste. So I set myself the challenge of writing 50 letters to people who I thought deserved it. These letters are not just me having a moan. They also get sent to people who deserve high praise. Such as Red Bull or The Manzil Restaurant. I have recently written another letter to Red Bull demanding an explanation for a lack of a response. I am hoping to get a reply from them before I put it online. I also recently posted some letters to various companies including Kelloggs, Relentless and Aberdeen Tourist Information. I will put these online over the next few weeks hopefully with a reply from each.
So there ya have it. I have written about 10 letters in total and 40 to go.
The first letter I posted online was to the Northumbria water board, it can be read here.
That got a pretty good response and sets the tone for the kind of crap I write to people.
Anyway, thats all I had to say.
Just a brief explanation as to why I write these crappy letters.
Thats all for now
Until Next Time
Have A Nice
