Talk about rotten customer experience! But at the same time, won't you look at that darling dog...
It's the curious case of the gratuitous and deliberately forlorn puppy. The canine customer service critic. And he's got good reason to frown.

I write stuff like this because people need to know. Even people like you. Having access to my mind is like permanently wearing an AAA pass to life!
