People Divulge Which Brands Can F*** Off

There are many cases where a company or product promises good quality or intentions.

But that isn't always the case as some companies fail to deliver and they make off with your hard-earned cash.

In an instantly gratifying world, consumers are quick to go after the things they want with the click of a button as long as they have the funds.

But they should keep a close eye on where their money is going toward.


Strangers online shared what brands to stay away from when Redditor ToastedLeaf- asked:

"What brand can go f'k off?"

They may appear to have good intentions, but of course, that's all they show you.

Putting On A Good Face

"National/international charities that give back minimally to the communities they pretend to serve."

"From charity watch. Top compensation:"

"Name & Title Charity Viviane Tabar, M.D. Chairman Attending Neurosurgery Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center $4,869,769 12/31/2020 Note: Includes $3,350,000 bonus & incentive compensation. Robert W. Stone President/CEO City of Hope & Affiliates $3,827,671"

Pack Of Thieves

"F'k Autism Speaks, my school decorated the halls for World Autism Day and encouraged us to talk about it in classes as kind of a break from work, and I mistakenly outed myself as autistic to everyone during one of those conversations."

"Later my teacher put on a whole PowerPoint drawing heavily from Autism Speaks and everyone proceeded to speak to me like a f'king ape for the remainder of my time there."

"They don’t respect us, don’t want to help us, and in fact seem to believe if we didn’t exist then things would be much better. They’re a disgusting pack of thieves and they absolutely do not speak for me"

Shady Salespeople

"Mary Kay."

"And all other pyramid schemes that sell themselves as self-employment. F'k off with a sandpaper condom, and that does double for the folks that started as victims and then rope in others to save themselves."

Outed

"They may call themselves 'Xfinity' but I know they a**es are Comcast. F'k Comcast."

Scammers, all of them.

Inconvenient "Convenience"

"Ticketmaster. Surprised i haven't seen it. You'll try and cross shop tickets just to realize they always redirect you to Ticketmaster where you're gonna pay a huge amount in convenience fees. Buying 2 tickets you're pretty much paying for 3."

Textbook Thievery

"Anyone who makes college textbooks for outrageous prices."

– AkwardTimeToLaugh

A Workaround

"Oh god i need to buy a math textbook for my class that started 2 weeks ago n it's about $117.50 usd dollars 😭 i refuse to buy it esp since at the end of class my professor allows us to take pictures of his book so we can do the homework."

Stay Out Of Touch With Them

"AT&T can f'k off once for each random a** incremental charge."

– Emmjacob

No Kinda Life Is...

"Herbalife. Specifically those Herbalife 'Nutrition' Drink shops."

– fauxshoah

Beware of the products you purchase. There apparently is corruption in these companies.

Suspicious Sparkle

"DeBeers. One of the main exploiters of West Africa in recent memory, a near monopoly on diamonds jacking up prices, insists that you must buy your loved one a real diamond from them and not a cheaper synthetic one in order to prove that love."

– Flodo_McFloodiloo

Deceitful Threads

"SheIn. Art theft, lead in children’s clothes, undoubtedly slave labor in there somewhere. The $1 fast food meal of clothing."

– steffinix

Bad Spark

"PG&E. They have f'ked over so many Northern Californians between faulty equipment starting fires to working with Gavin Newsom to make the consumer pay for their damages. They suck so much John Oliver made a Last Week Tonight about them. Breweries in NorCal even started making beer called PG&E Sucks."

Hidden charges are nothing revelatory.

Service charges in addition to delivery fees when you have food delivered to your home courtesy of the various apps made to make a consumer's life easier is all well and good.

But as one previously mentioned, what Ticketmaster charges with their not-so-hidden fees is basically highway robbery.

It's a shame that while live performances are re-emerging from the effects of the global pandemic, it comes at an exorbitant cost to patrons trying to regain a normal sense of life.

Many folktales and fairy stories began owing to unusual things sailors might have spotted out at sea.

Mermaids, sea serpents, lost colonies, the list goes on and on.

Sadly (or thankfully) there is no photographic evidence of monstrous sea life, such as giant squids or dinosaur-like sharks.

But that doesn't mean that sailors and people stationed out at sea haven't seen some unusual things.

Things they still have trouble explaining to this day, and will never forget for the rest of their lives.

"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

An aged old proverb reflecting on when people perform what they think are well-meaning, helpful acts, but in reality, only worsen a bad situation.

A day seldom goes by when people won't notice an example of this, either on the news, in the book they're reading, or simply walking down the street.

This could be anything from someone making promises to help out, but never delivering on them, to saving money for a less expensive cleaner, which turns out to radiate toxic fumes, resulting in the building being closed for an indefinite length of time.

Ideas which might seem good in theory, but are impractical, illogical, or even harmful, in practice.

Unless you grew up with the most doting parents on the planet, there's probably a toy or two that you really wanted as a kid, but never received.

Whether it was too expensive for your parents to afford, or something like a noisy toy that was going to be way too annoying for your parents, there are probably some toys that you really missed out on as a child.

When it comes to fast food places, no two places are the same. Wendy's spicy chicken nuggets are far superior to those from McDonald's, while no one does milkshakes quite like Dairy Queen.

I have always preferred burgers from In-N-Out, but my brother will always go for Five Guys.

There will always be debates when it comes to which establishment does fast food the best.

The biggest debate surrounds the ultimate side dish: french fries.

No one can ever seem to agree on which fast food chain has the best french fries, but that doesn't stop the debate. Redditors are engaged in that very debate as we speak!
