Yesterday I get home and what do I find in the mailbox but a bill from the vet stating that there is still a balance on Bear’s account. They have yet to pay the bill! I am pissed off. Now they might have gotten wind of what I did… posting about my experience on my blog, on their photo contest, on the local news, on facebook, on pinterest, on their website, on pissed off consumers, on animal blogs, etc, etc… and they didn’t pay the bill for that. Well my take on it is this. Thank you for paying the portion of the bill that you did, that was the least you could do. They already told me they weren’t going to reimburse me for his cost nor pay any future medical expenses. At first I was going to hire a lawyer to draft a demand letter for me but that would also cost me money that I was not guaranteed to get back. Why should I be out anything more? For that I posted what I did about them, and told any and everyone about my experience. In reality did it really do them any harm? Probably Not…people will say awwwww and continue to shop there. I know this, they know this. Why? Cause they are the largest chain around and they put local small pet shops out of business and people have no choice but to shop there unless there is a Petco around.
So who really lost in this case? Them or me? I have a maimed dog and now a vet bill.
They know the stakes. They don’t care. They are a big dog, I am an ankle biter.
Well they think they are so damn smart and I know I am a fighter of my rights. I give them one more chance to pay this bill and then if I have to pay it I have no choice but to take them to small claims court BUT I am going to up my side a little more. I am going to call all the judges and have my case heard on national TV. They are big and they are smug.
Who should I call?
The People’s Court?
Judge Joe Brown?
Judge Jeanine Pirro?
I hate being Pissed OFF.
