I recently ordered a pair of expensive designer shoes from a reputed e-shop and it has been 3 months with no delivery. I have contacted the e-shop and made a complaint but they say it is being processed. How to I go about getting there attention and some action to be taken.

first, strip completely nekkid. then, run around outside in your neighborhood yelling, "death to whitey!" and "allah akbar!" then, just wait for the police to show up. they should be able to help you.

rather then walk for office to office it may be a better idea to spend some time and invest some small capital in to the shoes making materials and make some designer shoes. Once these are ready including them in to your website and try to market the product online thus giving you a better chance of success.

I've found that before you complain about someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.

Then, when you do complain about them, you are a mile away and you have their shoes.

i have an extended battery that keeps me going all day or all week (with original as backup) when used sparingly on the trail. i have so much battery that i posted here on a long weekend hike, but i got blasted for not listening to nature instead.

Dont know what all the complaints about the battery issues are. I know on the older iphones, it was bad, but not any more. So moot point. Apps... Apples app standards are higher. I have no crashes from apps and no bugs. If you have a phone problem, you have to go to your provider and if you are lucky, you get it 'fixed' or you get a refurb model. With iphone, I go straight to the Apple store, quick check of it, and 10 minutes later I walk out with a brand new phone, no questions asked. Yes, my big let down is having ATT. But other than that, I love my iphone and wont be changing that any time soon.

SGT Rock

Here is something about their great service:


A number of articles lately have attempted to convey the full measure of Apple’s unprecedented streak of business success. Perhaps the most mind-blowing factoid about the company’s value came yesterday from Kontra, via Twitter: At the time of his tweet, Apple’s market capitalization had exceeded that of Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Amazon—combined.

One reason for that phenomenal success is, of course, Apple’s products. Another is its customer service, namely the Genius Bar, where bright-faced young geeks win customers’ hearts and build brand loyalty that Apple’s competitors can’t match.

How do they pull off this “high-touch” approach? Gizmodo this week reported on a leaked copy of Apple’s training manual for Genius Bar employees. Sam Biddle summarizes: “Sales, it turns out, take a backseat to good vibes—almost the entire volume is dedicated to empathizing, consoling, cheering up, and correcting various Genius Bar confrontations.”

To wit, a section of the manual under the subheading “Empathy Exercise 2—Techniques” introduces “The Three Fs: Feel, Felt, and Found.” A sample conversation from the handbook:

Customer: This Mac is just too expensive.
Genius: I can see how you'd feel this way. I felt the price was a little high, but I found it's a real value because of all the built-in software and capabilities.
This tactic dovetails nicely with the section of the manual on things to avoid saying and doing. For instance: “Do not apologize for the business [or] the technology.” Instead, empathize: “I’m sorry you’re feeling frustrated,” or “too bad about your soda spill accident.”

Biddle’s fascinating post on the manual is worth reading in full. But while he reads Apple’s tactics as outlandish and creepy, if brilliant, I’d just call them brilliant. Of course the company wants employees to address tech problems without trash-talking Apple’s own products. Of course it wants them to make customers feel valued while not forgetting that the ultimate goal is to part them from their money. These are things that every company wants, and they are skills that come instinctively to great salespeople.

But when you’re a big company, it’s almost impossible to impart these skills to every single employee. Most don’t even try—they hand out a generic HR handbook that no one will read, mainly just to cover their butts. Apple’s manual, in contrast, reveals a firm so bent on maintaining customer loyalty that it will go to abnormal lengths to show its workers exactly how to behave in all situations.

The investment has helped Apple establish one of the all-time great business empires. But as Apple continues to grow, it will become harder for it to serve its customers well. The company today has some 300 retail stores in the United States, but far fewer in many fast-growing overseas markets. It’s difficult to imagine the company keeping up with demand for its Genius Bars without compromising on the quality of its service.

As it happens, the company has offered a glimpse into the Genius Bar’s future: “online specialists.” The online service, which is now available to customers in Brazil, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom, is meant for people serious about buying an iPad or iPhone. Through live chats, phone conversations, and “screencasts,” the online helpers guide them through the product’s features, answer questions, and even help them set up their new gizmos once they’ve made their purchase.

What it doesn’t offer is any tech support, which means this is not really an “online Genius Bar.” But online tech support is surely not far away. And if Apple wants to keep printing money, it had better start writing a manual for its online geniuses that’s just as devious as the one for the men and women who manipulate us in brick-and-mortar stores.

"And as for the Alabama comment"
For the record I lived and worked in Macon, Ga. for 17 years. My son graduated from Samford University in Birmingham and married a girl from Aliceville, Al. Aliceville is a few miles north of I-20 just inside the Al.-Ms. state line. And my pastor in Macon used to say he was from L.A., lower Alabama. Still don't see why everyone there hates Auburn, though.
