WOOT, oh WOOT, why’d ya Sell Out?

wtf pricingstrong text** Woot?**
Ok, so I get that when the richest guy on earth wants to buy your company, you’re going to have to sell it to him one way or the other. So I was in an accident and out of communication for several years but now I’m back on the internet highway and I go to my beloved Woot! What do I find? TERRIBLE DEALS!! High prices!! Not a single weird thing that you would never ever want but now must have! WTF Woot? Oh no… I have missed something dead and gone.

There are still some deals to be had.

I’ve gotten fantastic pricing for some items, though, of course, a couple of them were pricing errors.

With so many items up on the “New Woot” most are less than usual price, some are more (sleuthed out on the forums), others are terrific deals. For the most part, I’ve been pleased with my value:crap-I-bought ratio. There’s still weird stuff that pops up, but usually are limited quantities (or super popular, I don’t know) the point is, those can sell out very quickly.

We need your help with an intervention…

Ut oh. My WootyWootsville Pager went off.
Let me put my hair up and drive my sloppy jaloppy to Happy Monkey Headquarters & figure out what’s wrong? …

Upon my investigation, I believe some Wooters may have had a bad day followed by too much wine. I’m sprinkling unicorn happy dust and sending explosive rainbows as I tap dance my way outta here…

Sometimes people just need to yell,
But remember True Wooters have their own smell,
For the residents of Wootsville are monkeys indeed,
With some cats, frogs, & penguins who peed,
on Dave’s desk, chair & his flooring,
That’s why Woot is never boring.
100% Happy is asking too much,
Rage Quitting, complaining, farting & such,
Are a thing of the norm
but not quite a storm,
So we’ll all just move on…
with a nice stretch and a yawn.
Good vibes shall thrive!

Interventions? Who knows?
Wooters are Wooters
From their heads to their toes.

Happy Day, Have a hug,
Let HOPE be your drug!

So, if a Wooter has a complaint, it’s because he’s moody and/or an alcoholic.

I’ve seen several cases this week where a customer has had a specific, relatively polite, well-worded complaint (not necessarily the OP of this thread, but several others this week alone) and was quickly set upon with attacks and personal insults by insiders.

It’s not a good look.

Yeah. That coming from someone who uses a picture of a cartoon monkey with a gun in its mouth as their profile picture…right.

Wow. Ok. Top read much? The poem was
Awesome and filled with happy and hope.

Perspective and all I guess.

I think it’s a great look.

No 277, I was speaking of myself. I’m sorry if it came off as an attack. Though, some regular, hard working lil monkeys do get attacked here in ugly ways. But, “too much wine and a bad day”, doth not make one an alcoholic. Unless they are.

I am a people-rooter. I am a kindness pusher, an annoying uglies shusher. I believe in laughter and smiles and I will go the extra mile.

I have a suggestion, that truly does work. Put the @ with a name, and don’t be a jerk. Take time to be kind, explain what went wrong, before you know it, you’ll be singing this song…
“My problem was resolved, my issue was solved, I’m not feeling so foolish for being involved, with a company like Woot, so rooty toot toot!”

*Shrugs" works for me.

Re: Q.E.D. …you didn’t prove anything… you’re just picking on people.
I’m sorry you are having a hard time. I am too.
Of that whole thing… that’s what you see. It makes me believe that you can hear 20 good things about you and then you perseverate on one suggestion or correction.
I AM SORRY TO HAVE RUFFLED YOUR FEATHERS. I did not mean to cause discourse.
I do hope things get better. For EVERYONE.

No. That’s what you’re getting fundamentally wrong.

I “picked on” deeds and practices that are not constructive (and, frankly, bad business choices), never attacking any individual.

You and your minions insult customers by name and attack individuals.

The mothership is already under increasing scrutiny for gamed listing practices and fake reviews. Now, where even commentary is gamed, we’re approaching fake-Facebook-closeout-sale-ad levels of untrustworthiness.

I think maybe you’re confused about where you are. You are definitely bullying someone else on not even your post for no apparent reason on not a social media site.
