Once Upon a Business, to Office Depot I did go . . .
ONE executive chair I did purchase
TWO hundred $$ did Office Depot over-charge
THREE fraudulent Office Depot charges on my account
FOUR bank rebuttals against Office Depot I did submit
FIVE different Office Depot departments who promised resolution
SIX Office Depot managers I did entreat — please return my funds
SEVEN regrets for shopping with Office Depot
EIGHT Office Depot customer service agents I did beg — please return my funds
NINE (90) minutes of typing/faxing/submitting rebuttal letters to Office Depot
TEN hours of listening to bad Office Depot hold music
ELEVEN broken promises from OFFICE Depot — to date still no funds returned
TWEVLE (120 days) awaiting for funds to be returned.
For those in the business world . . .
for those authors searching for the perfect writing chair . . .
Hear my 12 Days of Office Depot woe.
Shop somewhere — anywhere else — and save the woes of miserly Office Depot who taketh but doesn’t giveth.
Oh, and in case you really need to get in touch with a living, breathing person who is NOT part of the Customer Service ‘useless’ wheel — their corporate number is: 561-438-4800. (It only took 120 days to obtain that phone number.)
If you call Corporate, expect a recording. Of course.
Be sneaky and persistent.
Select any department — except Customer Service, then press 0 for the Operator and you should get through.
Oh wise shoppers . . .
DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT
— especially do not go into OFFICE DEPOT.
RAGE AGAINST THE DYING OF THE LIGHT.
— and terrible customer service.
Protect your sanity and shop elsewhere.
