And I Though Target Had Bad Customer Service.

Its been a while since I have given you any news from the 75904. Its not that we haven't had any. Oh, no. News happens around here on a minute by minute basis. Its just that more times than not its embarrassing. I don't want you all to think that I live in some po-dunk town devoid of real crime. Because I don't. The 75904 is a gang wasteland people. Hardcore. Very hardcore.

Just take the news last week about the man who hit his wife with a plastic baseball bat and sprayed Febreeze in her face because she popped her bubble game in his face. That was our headline in the paper. I told you, we're hardcore around here.

And apparently so is this poor guy who simply wanted what we all want: TO BE HEARD. (Well, he actually wanted more than most of us want unless most of us go to County Road 6101 for our jollies.) But he also wanted to be heard. But he wasn't. The customer service around there was bad, reeealll bad. So he took matters into his own hands. Thank heaven he didn't have a bottle of Febreeze in his hand.


Nacogdoches man reportedly admits taking laptop as refund from prostitute

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, Texas (KTRE) - Nacogdoches County deputies arrested a Nacogdoches man early Monday after they say he admitted to taking a woman's laptop computer as a refund to money he paid her earlier for sex.

Carlos Ramirez, 25, is charged with burglary, a second-degree felony, and prostitution, a class B misdemeanor.

According to the complaint report, deputies were dispatched to County Road 6101 in reference to a burglary. When they arrived, a woman told them Ramirez stole a laptop from her residence while she was next door.

Deputies interviewed Ramirez, who reportedly told them he had paid the woman for sex and wanted some of the money back. According to the complaint, Ramirez said she refused to return any money, so he took the laptop, thinking she would be persuaded to return some of the money.

Sheriff Thomas Kerss explained that Ramirez said he "paid the woman by the month, and did not feel she gave him what he wanted" enough times.

Deputies arrested Ramirez on the burglary and prostitution charges, in addition to two municipal warrants.
According to the Texas Penal Code, a person commits prostitution if they pay or receive a fee for sex.

Kerss said his office is investigating prostitute charges on the woman.

"Those cases are hard to prove, but we're looking into his allegations," he said.

When you think about it, the man could have taken some Tupperware. Maybe a cast iron skillet. Or a box of laundry detergent. But a laptop? I'm not sure what she short-changed him on but it appears that she owed him, big time.

I also think its funny that the article referred to the "Penal" Code. But again, that's probably just me.

Oh' that was really bad, Customer service isn't about being perfect. Customer service is about making things right, not just the immediate problem, but the root cause.And it is totally about listening and care to the customer. Thanks for the post.
