This is a complaint letter on an epic scale. It was written by blogger Cloaker Josh to Australia’s largest telecommunications company, Telstra Corporation, after they put a bar on outgoing calls on Josh’s phone. Getting the bar lifted proved to be just about the most difficult thing that Josh had ever done. At over 11,000 words, this letter takes a bit of getting through so I suggest you get a cup of good coffee or, as this is an Australian letter, a nice cool tinny, put your feet up and be very very glad that this didn’t happen to you!
DCR’s favourite Dutchman and professional fire-fighter, Thomas de Graaff, is slightly bonkers. He sends crazy letters to unsuspecting product manufacturers just to see what comes back. He also likes to make telephone calls whilst fighting raging infernos (like I said, he’s bonkers). He is therefore a big fan of his virtually indestructible, bad-ass mobile phone, made by Sonim Technologies.
So much so, he wrote a song about it….
“All I want is to not have our wallets emptied while in your site and to be able to navigate into, throughout and more to the point, away from your site without the need for sustained prayer, a fully stocked first aid kit and a willingness to take our families to repeated therapy sessions to expunge the horror embedded in their psyche by your site’s experiences.”
