"Do not buy" list - companies

Recommended Posts

Anyone got a list of companies that they won't buy from, either because they have brain numbingly bad adverts or a 'woke' SJW marketing culture?  A couple I can think of:

1. Gillette.  The obvious one, telling your entire customer base they are bad people in a marketing strategy devised by a feminist. Genius.

2. Skoda.  Currently airing the most annoying radio advert known to man with some kids singing.  I have to mute the radio every time the ads are on.

I should pass because the list would be endless.

ASDA - I think they're rubbish. 

BT because Openreach used to dig up our road three times a year and it's now  nine times.

As they refuse to serve anybody other than snowflakes, it's a company I boycott on principle and won't buy anything from..._

BUPA care homes.

Undermanned, poor service quality, penny pinching outfit.

They're not even Provident, struggling to get by on fees of £7k a month minimum per resident.

Managers and executives doing ok though.

‘Woke’ basically means aware of social ‘issues’ and SJW means ‘social justice warrior’. In other words companies that want to lecture you on how to live your life rather than just selling you bog roll or whatever.

From the info I have I'm critical of their approach. False economy, pay mostly minimum wage, not of course unusual but 90%+ staff have left in a year. Other outfits seem to manage the balance of costs and service better. Customer dissatisfaction isn't rare. Working atmosphere said to be a bit aggravated and the place is getting grubbier. I'd have thought could do better for what they charge.

They don't strike me as a Provident Association.
