I refuse to deal with Discover Card. They are a terrible company and you won't convince me otherwise. What's the point of fraud protection if they don't back you up, right? Much like how some people feel looking down from great heights, it's something I have no desire to deal with again. It's nauseating.
Some people feel similarly about other companies and other brands, as we discovered after Redditor unknownmiffett asked the online community, "What is your 'never again' brand, item, store, or restaurant?"
"They charged me $300..."
Ohio Savings Bank. They charged me 300 dollars over the span of a year because, unlike normal debit cards, every time I put my pin in instead of signing, it charged me an extra dollar fifty. By the time I caught it most of the charges were past the 30 day refund policy so they gave me 10 dollars as a refund. I didn't make a fuss because I know it's not the workers fault but I did withdraw all my money immediately and switched banks. To hell with that place.
"I don't know where they get them..."
Melons from Sprouts Farmers Market. I don't know where they get them, how they store them, or how they ship them, but, in order to prove I am not insane by doing the same thing over and over hoping for a different result, I have given up trying to find a decent melon there.
"I can't imagine..."
The dollar store in my area has $1 steaks. I can't imagine trusting a $1 steak to not kill me.
"When 50 percent of my orders..."
Doordash. When 50% of my orders never made it to me, and one of the drivers cusses me out for having the audacity to ask for my food, they go on the never again list.
"I will NEVER..."
Greyhound. I will NEVER step foot on one of their buses again. Every single time I've rode with them, something catastrophic happens.
From buses breaking down to felons getting arrested mid-trip, I think it's safe to say I've had enough.
"I'll skip the details..."
Target brand tampons. I'll skip the details. If you know, you know.
"It was basically..."
Smokey Bones. I ordered a "loaded nachos" from them recently. It arrived. It was basically a pile of plain corn chips with maybe a tablespoon of cheese sauce. It included several tiny tablespoon portions of salsa, tomatoes, jalapenos, and sour cream. This was $13.00! Total waste of money. I will never order from them again!
"And I haven't."
Soon after she left me in 1998, my ex wife wanted to meet for a post mortem conversation. I suggested we meet at Pizzeria Uno. About 20 minutes into our agonizing conversation, she looked around and said: "Wait. You hate Pizzeria Uno." I replied: "I sure do. I'm not going to ruin a place that I like with terrible memories. I'm never entering a Pizzeria Uno again."
And I haven't.
"Manager called me..."
Planet Fitness. Manager called me after I had emailed about an issue and left a voice mail. Except when he hung up, he missed the receiver and I was treated to two minutes of him trash talking me. Called back and said "Yep, go ahead and cancel that membership and next time make sure you hang up."
Generic American Cheese Slices from Walgreens.
Dog needed medication. We typically encase it in some yummy soft american cheese. Kraft was like $5. Ouch. NoName was a buck for 16 slices. SOLD! Kraft slices also make a damn fine grilled cheese sandwich on the cheap.
Except that the dog wouldn't touch it. Like actively turned away and refused to go near it.
We had to get white slices when we went to the store next time because he needed to forget the yellow ones. It was that bad.
