Used to be that companies would check the quality of their products before selling anything. And then it turned out to be cheaper / easier to delegate that responsibility to the consumer: if it breaks, return it. But when the retailer's return policy disallows a fair trial period we're left holding the bag (having paid for junk and unable to get our money back). When a supposedly reputable store doesn't check the quality of the goods they buy for re-sale, what are our options?

I won't say "pain free," as no dentist could promise that, but I particularly enjoy the fact that Dr. Galan tells me what he's going to do be doing both before and during the actual work.

Another favourite aspect? I've never had to wait more than five minutes. Dr. Galan's staff are not only warm, friendly and seem to genuinely care about patients, they're also excellent at scheduling and long wait times have never been an issue.

We all have to see the dentist, right? Once a year at least? Why not pick one of Calgary's best.

If you're the creative type - or wanna be - no matter your age or gender, check out Beads and Plenty More in Calgary. Classes for novices as well as experts, a comprehensive array of supplies, and personal advice should the need arise: the staff are friendly, personable and service oriented to the nth degree. I wish every business would be as good to their clients.

I don't even want to call them stylists. They're not. And certainly not professional. I specified my preferences and left with nothing close to resembling what I wanted.

Being a firm believer in giving local business a second chance, I tried again (after having been less than pleased the first time) and - again - was hugely disappointed. Two of the worst haircuts of my entire life. Two different "employees," both really bad. Thank goodness hair grows!

The cost factor isn't at question here, I've had great service at Ultracuts (but don't live close to one of their salons at the moment).

If looking to save money when having your hair cut (well)? Stay away from (this) Great Clips and look at other discount hair salons.

After the second fiasco, near to tears, I went to Ultracuts for a rescue (and thankfully, they were able to do something with the little hair remaining on my head) and learned that not all salons hire licensed or experienced stylists. Apparently it's skilled trade, much like carpentry or plumbing, where individuals take a course, write the exam, get the license then work / apprentice themselves to improve. Great Clips is notorious for not requiring their so-called stylists to be licensed.

Truly a case of buyer beware! If you're not sure, ask to see that piece of paper.

Canada Post, a tax-payer-subsidized organization is falling down on the job yet again. My elderly friend (in another province) is unable to get to the post office to send a parcel, and the post office is unable to suggest an alternative. Even adding a stamp and sending it to the recipient with the balance of postage payment due (to be paid by the receiver) is not an option. The long-time mismanaged government agency is revealing its shortcomings one more time in refusing to consider options or even pay attention to this issue which will - of course - become increasingly prevalent as our population ages.

April 4, 2016 I purchased 50 pinwheels for my garden / yard. My home is on the outskirts of a city and rabbits are a problem. I paid by credit card and the charge showed up on my account two days later. Three WEEKS later, I was informed my order had been cancelled, alleging non-payment as the reason. Today, two weeks later again, the charge on my credit card has not been reversed. Of course I've opened a dispute with the credit card company and trust all will be resolved from the financial end, but what a waste of time!

Are they seriously incompetent or were they attempting to take my money without delivering the goods? Either way, I cannot recommend this company as trustworthy.

I love bread and defy current "low carb" trends (quoting numerous nutritional facts and digestive needs; all my own opinion of course, but backed up by my choice of citations). Sobey's artisan breads are excellent. Tasty, chewy ... pretty much perfect in every way as far as I'm concerned. However, the Sobeys chain isn't remotely intersted in providing nutritional information or even a complete list of ingredients. I wrote to inquire. Twice. To no avail. "Silence" isn't always the best answer.

My question and concern (given that I like to know the sugar, salt and fat content of everything I ingest)? How do they get away with circumventing labelling laws? (Check the packaging and you'll see what I mean.) Perhaps more importantly, WHY are they not providing ingredients and nutritional information?

I spent good money on this author's books. Some time later I spotted her name on a list of seminars at a jewellery convention. The class she was scheduled to teach looked like a gorgeous piece but wasn't in any of her books. The tutorial / kit isn't for sale on her website either.

In the intervening months I have contacted this woman three (yes, 3) separate times asking for more information, if she'd sell the tutorial or kit, if she'd be including it an upcoming book.

Nothing irritates me more than rude people. She didn't so much as do me the courtesy of responding. Not even an auto-response.

You can safely presume I won't be purchasing another of her books, or anything else for that matter.

We all love dealing with people who perceive their customers as valuable. This one doesn't.
