Nobody is asking for anything by the way. But laughing at the idea of a sale and expecting that people should run over each other to pay more is...well not so surprising here.
At some point on this thread it always comes back to this.
Precisely the point. People are naive to believe that the outrage a few pages back are because we simply want a Black Friday sale. It's partially because of principle. You'd expect a supposedly prestigious company to honor their word. Saying that you're a global brand and that the norms of American retail doesn't apply to you is laughable when you're based in the US. But that's not a big deal; simple miscommunication between Brannan and the Wizard. We'll brush that aside. Their biggest offense is the constant flow of narcissistic comments, more precisely, Brannan's narcissistic comments. At no point should a company tell us how lucky we are that they're even considering the idea of running a promotion. You don't need a doctorate to realize that people will be offended by that statement. I understand that some of you shook hands with Brannan and its hard to speak ill of someone you've met, but that doesn't change the fact that the man was offensive in just about every one of his last posts. Perhaps he doesn't realize it, but he was, and I have no problem pointing that out. Know that I'm not the first person to be offended by Brannan, and I'm likely not the last. You guys want to do business with a company that believes they're better than you, then by all means give them your money. But for others, there are better options to be had. Oh and by the way Brannan, you're still getting that tip jar.Edited by Dinerenblanc - 11/21/14 at 9:52am
