When thinking about the places that I have stopped doing business and the reasons why I stopped shopping there is because I was treated with disrespect now being greeted or being ignored, I can’t shop at a place where they ignored me and judged me because I am unable to meet their specific standard of the ideal customer.

Another place that I will not shop at again is Verizon because when I called them letting them know that they were over charging me I was not given any update and I have to go and call and call and call until two months later I finally got the credit after a lot of time and effort. Honestly I will never do business with Verizon again. I can’t do business with someone that doesn’t value my time and my effort.
