    WPMO (what piss's me off) Thread.....

    Surely there is something today that you can post WPMO ?!

    I don't wish to offend any here who have this habit - if so I'm sorry in advance but its the marketing of this that really PMO !
    Sportsbet or whatever 365 and all there other associates.
    I'm watching my games enjoying my sports and Friday nights NRL SF was littered with this CRAP but more so the ending quote of this wood duck "and please don't forget gamble responsively with a smile".........
    Spare me please !
    Yes I am NO gambler, I can't see the point thats its fun or whatever is achieved out it.
    All I see is people immersed with spending $$$ thinking they have won (unless its an absolute motza) but what they have invested for the win in the first place is all forgotten lol......
    I watch 2 close friends who are into this crap via their mobile in front of their younger kids.
    Please, monkey see monkey do as they say.

    companies (food mainly) that continually downsize thier products but leave the price the same, or increase it. All in the name of doing it for our benefit apparently! Heinz is the latest culprit, but companies like cadbury have been doing it for years.

    On a similar note is the fact that even though the product changes size, often the packaging gets left the same, so you end up buying half a box, or bag of air with your product.

    Petrol companies that seem to have to have no reason to pump prices up 20-30c a litre... Coincidentally usually the same day I need fuel.

    100% agree, Ive never seen so much gambling being advertised as it has in the past few years. Kind of ironic when you think the pokies were in the firing line for many years, now it seems technology allows us to literally bet while sitting on the lounge at home. I have zero interest in it as well, I piss my money up the wall on cars.

    Given i'm currently searching for a new (to me) car....

    incorrect car ads! dealers seem to be the worst culprits. If i'm searching for a specific model, i don't need to be scrolling through countless ads of different cars. checked one out on the way home from work yesterday. Rock up to dealer and ask to see the territory they've just got in. got directed to a TX over in the corner. showed the sales guy the ad that clearly says TS and a picture of a TS. first he tried to claim it wasn't their caryard, but when i pointed to the write up that mentioned them, he said, 'oh, sometimes we just use file pics if we don't have the car yet...'. i said 'yeah, but its still not the right model'. he didn't seem to understand my frustration.

    how hard is it to correctly advertise your vehicle? seriously.
