These are not M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. They can slap the M.U.S.C.L.E. label on these figures, but they aren’t M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. Each wave seems to have less and less of a M.U.S.C.L.E.-like appearance. These just look like new Mega Man keshi figures.
Do you know how they could make me a fan of these figures?
I’m no fool. I understand why they are doing it. But I don’t like it. (Which is just another thing on a very long list of thing other people don’t care about.)
Let’s take a look at some real M.U.S.C.L.E. stuff.
– Is this re-listed or a new one?
– Speaking for all of Michigan, we’re sorry about this one.
– 178 figures and one FLAF.
Aaaaaand, that’s it.
Did you guys see my grasshopper spinach post this week?
I posted it just to share. I couldn’t believe it happened. I think I shared it because it didn’t seem real. Plus my question was my own internal thought. I figured people would get a good laugh. (Other people could wish I had taken a big bite.)
Then Dole responded.
If I am being painfully honest, then I would admit I had no expectation of customer service when I posted the picture. However, once an organization/business/person tries to rectify a situation my expectations get very high.
They reached out to me, but then went radio silent. I don’t expect an instant response, but 24 hours seems reasonable for this type of situation.
I finally heard from Dole 2 days, 1 hour, and 36 minutes after I posted the picture. And this was the message; followed by my response:
I am very curious what will happen next.
If I’m being my normal grumpy self, then I expect to receive a check for $3.99 and a $0.50 off any Dole product coupon (maybe a couple coupons). If that happens I will go out of my way to, forever, avoid Dole products. I will also rant about how customer service is a lost art and that the world is getting worse and worse.
If I force myself to be optimistic, then I want Dole to show some effort – do something that actually shows they care about their customers. Here are 10 examples that are great examples. A real effort to retain my business will make me a life long proponent of Dole.
A lack of effort will make Dole an annoying, reoccurring portion of this website.
