Hello loyal readers of The Constant Complainer. Yes, I’m still alive, although it’s been a few months since I last posted. Please accept my apologies for being away. I’m rested, ready to get back on track and hope to be around again on a more regular basis.
What, do you ask, was so monumental that it [...]
Today I’m featuring two very different cell phone pictures. But both are equally frustrating to me.
I’m not specifically picking on Wal-Mart in this post, but they’re just the example I’m using. Why do some retail stores have 25 check-out aisles, but none of them are ever open? This is the case at my local Wal-Mart. [...]
Here at The Constant Complainer, in addition to my own posts, readers can submit Guest Posts on topics they’d like to complain about. Leo Nevoli submitted the below-Guest Post. His complaint is how the Christmas holiday season seems to start earlier every year. I thought this was a great post idea. So without further adieu, [...]
In the past, whenever we’ve discussed Wal-Mart on this blog, it’s always been entertaining. Some people like Wal-Mart and some people don’t. But one thing always remains true - the opinions on both sides are strong.
This post actually involves my wife. Yes, that’s right; Mrs. Constant Complainer! Keep in mind, she’s not a blogger and [...]
It isn’t too often that I will go on a rant about a specific product. But in this case, I’ll make an exception.

Anyone who has ever read this blog knows that I am a fierce consumer advocate. I’m fair, but won’t hesitate to stand up for my consumer rights and/or expectations over the phone or at any store, restaurant or event.
With that being said, I’ve always given the spotlight on this site to strange issues I’ve encountered [...]
The other day at lunch, a colleague was telling me how her husband is a fierce consumer advocate. She said that he has fair expectations, but won’t hesitate to stand up to a company if he needs to. That was music to my ears, as I’ve spent years grandstanding and arguing that consumers should stand [...]
Here at The Constant Complainer, in addition to my own posts, readers can submit Guest Posts on topics they would like to complain about. William Gatherer submitted the below-Guest Post. His complaint is the customer service habits of retailers he frequents. I love customer service complaints and I think all of us can relate to [...]
Do you remember the days when you could walk into a retail establishment and be greeted by an employee who was knowledgeable of the product they were selling?
I’m not that old - so I’m referring to the late-90’s, before the job market really started to change. You know; the days when you could ask a [...]
This evening my daughter and I stopped at Babies “R” Us because we needed to pick up a gift for my nephew. We did our shopping and went to checkout. It was about 7:30 p.m. Of course, as is my usual luck, there was only one lane open.
Anyway, I was second in line. I noticed [...]
