Atlantic Trap and Gill?????

Location: Alberta, Edmonton
Industry: Restaurant
Annoyed By: All the staff..

I love the Trap, it's always a good time, the food is awsome, and the people are great. I wanted to go there for my stagette, and my maid of honour phoned to make a reservation. She was told that we wouldn't need one since it was a stagette. We would also not have to wait in line because it was a stagette. So, on Saturday night at around 10:45pm we arrive and my maid of honour makes her way through the line to tell the bouncer that a stagette has arrived. He didn't care. Apparently if we had been there BEFORE 10pm we wouldn't have had to wait in line. No one told us this! Multiple men came out to have a smoke, saw us in line and tried to get us in, to no avail. We think perhaps the bouncer doesn't like the "female" gender....*wink wink*

Property Management Co. and Contractors Take the Money and Run!

Location: Manitoba, Winnipeg
Industry: Other
Annoyed By: the repair people(or lack thereof) management co.

I rent a home that is in need of some basic, but necessary repairs.There is a gaping hole in my wall about 4 feet across and 2 feet high that I put my couch in front of, storm windows not installed, a hazardous fire escape,a fence that is half destroyed, and the list goes on.And for the record, these damages were already here before my boyfriend and I moved in with our dog and cats.It is hard to find a house for rent in our price range that will accept animals.It has been two years now and no repairs have even begun! we've have contacted residential tenancies branch, the health inspector, and the fire inspector and Elite Property Management still has done nothing! they claimed to have already paid a contractor called Zone-One Mechanical and they ran away with the money, or so they say, and they're not paying anyone else to do repairs! I find it strange that they would pay the money up front.And with out an estimate at that.Also,we live in the upper part of the house,the lower area is occupied by someone else.The lower half of the house gets repairs done, because Elite claims that they hired different contractors than ours yet it is still the same house! what the hell is this!? rude repair people, incompetent management company. Don't deal with these folks! it has been a nightmare.

"Do NOT SMILE at the camera"

Location: Ontario, Everywhere
Industry: Government
Annoyed By: Canadian Government

It's no new news that the people working for the Canadian government have a bad attitude. It's like you have to BEG for them to process your papers while you watch their unhappy, wrinkled faces. Well I'm sorry, but it's not my fault that you have been stuck in that chair for the past 7 years and will be for the rest of your life. And it's not my fault that you have SHORT working hours, good and stable income from the government with many holidays, no time pressure and that you get to be rude to your customers. Come on, we live in the modern international world- learn how to provide a service.

Not to mention that the immigration treat you like criminals each time you enter the country after traveling: "Where have you been? For how long? Why? Did you bring anything back with you" - of course I have to say I bought something back even if I didn't you !%)&!, or else you wouldn't believe it and just go through my luggage to tax me on my used stuff.

Then again, nothing beats the government's 'efficiency' in dealing with their daily task of paper work that they should be so skilled at. Did you know that it takes 94 just to renew your permanent residence card? 94 days. And guess what? That only starts counting from the day they start processing your application, because normally they are 2-3 months behind with their papers. (Hire more people would you, it's a big country!)So around 5 months, just to get the same card with a more recent picture on it.

And finally, what's with the 'You are not allowed to smile on the picture.' So the applicant is destined to look ugly on all their Canadian identities. It's not like I look like I've been stoned on a normal basis, so the picture wouldn't reflect reality anyway. This 'non-smiling' ideology flowing through the entire Canadian governmental services really shows how little they know about services.

Doba is pure Scam and Rip Off

Location: Other, Orem
Industry: Retail
Annoyed By: Deceptive Advertising

I signed up for free 7 day trial just so I can view their so called "Guaranteed Lowest Wholesale Prices". On day two they billed me $199 for a whole year subscription, after viewing most of the items I was interested in, I found that nothing they offer is wholesale. Anything can be bought online and off line for much less than what advertised. They also do not stock anything they advertise. When Doba is out of stock, so is the supplier that they rely on to ship you that product, such as

So I called to cancel my membership on the third day of the free trial, they declined to cancel the membership and offer me a refund. I also called my credit card company to report them and block all future charges and to file a chargeback against Doba.

A couple days go by and they call me again to upgrade my membership! I told them NO and to cancel my membership immediately! They said it's not possible and no refund will be issued. I get one last and final call about upgrading my membership and again told them NO and to stop calling. The BBB is absolutely no help whatsoever even though they have many complaints on file with Doba.

The people at Doba are nothing but a bunch of liars, and thieves saying that I agreed to their one year membership and that no refunds will be issued once signed up. Also stating that I was sent a policy via email and by phone. No one told me or sent me anything about no refund in any shape or form. They we're not to charge me until AFTER the free trial is up unless I call to cancel before the trial period.
