What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

Don't ya hate Corporations? I hate Franklin Templeton

I gotta tell you, I hate corporations. The bigger they get the more inept they get. I was recently invited to attend a private dress rehearsal for marketing guru Seth Godin in New York. The official presentation is Oct. 22, but he selected a few folks to come up beforehand and see what's happening. All was well until I tried to transfer funds out of my savings for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

My broker, Franklin Templeton Investments, screwed it up. Three times. They sent money to my bank account under someone else's name. Yup. Do I feel my money is safe with Franklin Templeton Investments? No. Would you? They admitted it was their mistake but can't fix it. Too bad. So sad. Three times they've screwed up. So what's happening? What's going on with corporate America? The worst part about it is they think if they're friendly while they're sending my money under the wrong name that that makes it okay.

Well, they're right up there with Media General and The Danville Register & Bee and any other corporation who thinks they can continue to provide no service or bad service and retain customers. If you're reading this and want to rate The Register & Bee or Franklin Templeton Investments or any other company you might want to give a good or BAD review of... go to www.yelp.com and log in and make your voice heard. Maybe you're tired of waiting 45 minutes at the local bagel store to get a toasted bagel or a sandwich. Let out of town visitors know they need to have time to burn. Sure, the food is great, but don't expect to get served in 20 minutes or less.

The Danville Register & Bee
can't get a paper to you before you leave for work. They get your ads or obits wrong. Leave a review.

Franklin Templeton Investments screws up your fund transfers - let the world know. Consumers now have the ability to let companies know their incompetence won't be tolerated. Join me in giving consumers a voice. It only takes a minute and you just might learn something.
