    Dell.

    Cheapest feeling crap in the world - enough said.

    Microsoft.

    World's lamest operating system. Ever. Enough said.

    Safeway.

    Hires the lamest employees on Earth. Every single Safeway, less the ones in California have the slowest checkers on the planet and no self serve checkout. I was at Staples buying a CD binder today and I needed a few things at the grocery store. A Safeway was right next door and I didn't go in.

    Best Buy.

    Ditto. It took me a half-hour to buy a shuffle for a gift one day. First the kid had to find the cabinet keys. Then he asked me three effing times if I wanted a warranty. Then the register was locked and he couldn't find the dude with the keys. Then he walked me over to the computer area. They couldn't ring it up for some reason, so he had to escort me to freaking returns. No lie. 30 minutes. I almost imploded.

    Blockbuster.

    What can I say?

    MBNA

    I auto pay my business line of credit with these morons every month. I had a $2 hike that I forgot to punch in last month and the collections department at MBNA called me to ask me if I'd like to settle the account and why I was overdue. Settle the account? I've had the account for four years and never been late or overdue once and this chick calls me up and lectures me over two effing dollars. I wonder how much it cost them to get the two bucks out of me.

    Bank of America.

    I have a line of credit with these bozos, too. One client forgot to auto pay their account one month (a big client) and I was on vacation using my debit card to my heart's delight. The money is always there. Now, admitted, I should have peeked at my balance, but there was a computer glitch and my business checking accoutn went $1,000 overdrawn...$700 of which was overdraft fees. Now first, why in the eff would you let someone keep buying meals, rent cars and buy things when they were overdrawn? Secondly I had to srgue with them for weeks to show them they had screwed up. Seven hundred effing dollars in overdraft fees - I can't imagine what would happen to some poor schmuck without overdraft protection. Like it cost them $700 dollars...

    Lacie.

    Loudest POS external drive in the known universe. Mine sounds like an old-fashioned manual ice cream maker we had when I was a kid.

    There, I was a good boy and explained my hatred. :D

    i'd like to see people give reasons for why... otherwise this thread is worthless... what do you hate, and why?

    i dislike most cell phone companies. they know that you want/need a cell phone, and i get the impression that their customer service takes advantage of this. they're usually not very helpful

    DHL - due to their workers stealing package contents and crappy customer service while trying to get said package contents replaced.

    Ntl - for completely ignoring my cancellation requests, then not cancelling my account when they claimed they would..then trying to charge me for the additional month that they "forgot" to cancel.

    Ford - consistently crappy vehicles, to date.
    Microsoft - you know.
    Compaq - Obsolete out of the box.
    Halliburton - stealing my tax dollars.
    Bechtel - same as Halliburton.
    KBR - same as Bechtel.
    Exxon Mobile - Robbing me at the gas pump.
    Arco - see above.
    Shell - see above.
    BP - see above.
    Nextel, I hate the chirp, I don't want to hear the whole conservation from both people.
    Sony - I used to really like them, but their products are lacking in quality.
    Most of the record industry - for their production line band producing methods and extortion when it comes to prices.
    And, Time Warner for ruining every piece of media they have acquired.

    There are a bunch, I try to avoid them if I can, and that makes me happier.

    Okay I will add reasons

    Microsoft- Windows POS.

    Dell-Cheap unreliable products

    Toyota-Hype Hybrids too much. Don't see the savings in your wallet until 3-5 years. Don't except their mistakes. Like blaming a Scion tC problems on the Driver(http://www.autoweek.com/article.cms?articleId=103151)

    Honda- Steals designs( look at the new Civic, the front is a rebadge Saturn). Hype Hybrids too much as well

    Motorola/Freescale- Worst phones and CPU's(G4)

    Intel(Viva La PowerPC!)- Working on a dead architecture. Forcing companies to only use their chips.

    Sony- POS products.

    Nintendo- They think their innovative. They are not. I mean their Revolution controller is a remote control!

    DCX(Chrysler/Mercedes)- POS unreliable products. We can't blame DCX for service since Dealers are independently owned.

    Microsoft- haven't produced anything of quality for decades. maybe their mice are good. but it ends there. the money grabbing whores.
    Sony- Only good and long lasting Sony product i've used has been my oldé Sony Minidisc R91 thing. their TV's are cack and ditto for their sound systems. no thanks!
    Nike- child labour bastards
    Glaxosmith-kline (i think thats right)- animal testing. i wont bomb anyone for doing that to animals but ill avoid them alright.
    pretty much every record company- for making me hate all popular music. cheers for that!
    Burberry
    Nokia- uberly foul mobile phones. zero innovation. nothing worthwhile here.
    Palm OS- I just dont like it. i know its not a company as such.
    Game (UK game shop)- the biggest Sony fanclub in the UK. yea lets give the PSP more shelfspace even though there are less games out and (according to my local Game) are selling less than DS games. and especially GBA games which has minimal shelf space.
    Big movie companies- for single handedly making all films pretty much the same! cheers for that!
    Bands that start off good only to turn bad when they realise they're famous- ie. Franz Ferdinand.

    Ford - Worst attempt at an auto manufacturer ever

    M$ - self explanatory

    FedEx - Theres no reason why I should be home to sign for a $10 shirt. Just leave it at the damn door.

    Charter Communications - (My local cable company) Horrible customer service and their internet is always down.


    One more thing, I'm surprised to see so many people that have problems with Sony. By far one of the best electronics companies out there. Interesting...
