Marketing via your moblie phone...
Why do companies think this is going to go down well?

Don't know about you, but companies that think they can use your mobile phone as a means of marketing are dicks.... especially on ANZAC day.

Conversation went down hill quick... after spamming my phone with meal deals each week.... and them also sending me shit on ANZAC day after requesting being removed from the list.

La Fiamma Ribs & Pizza
7 hours ago
They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Not the years condemn
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning
We will remember them
Lest we forget

(try to picture an ANZAC image taken from google)

Me:
Text message spam is not old
Appreciation of such grows old
Marketing people shall weary them
Timing of such shall condemn them
At the going down of sun, and in the morning
Whilst I try to remember them
Try to keep your discounted pizza n rib deals off my mobile phone on remembrance day you insensitive fucking piece of shit
Lest we forget

La Fiamma Ribs & Pizza:
You are the individual who is dishonouring the Anzacs on a day of commemoration by using such profane and insensitive language

Me:
Dishonouring the ANZACS?
You dumb shit...
My language is directed solely at you and your insensitive marketing strategy... I got offered a great discount of $10 by you on my "persona"l mobile phone today whilst I was paying my respects to relatives that died fighting for this country.
Explain to me how I am dishonouring the ANZACS by telling you to fuck off from trying to sell me pizza and ribs through my phone on ANZAC day!!!!
Next time someone I know dies I will be sure to invite you to the funeral so you can sell me some cooked meat.
Take me off your spam list please.

Am I wrong here? cause my blood pressure is pretty high and I feel very very un-huggable...

How many times a week do you get people trying to text message sell you shit? Not often by the sounds of it...

Ever tried getting off a list? doesn't sound like it...

Just cause I ordered food from a place a couple of times doesn't not mean that they can spam me with weekly deals.

Stuffing shit in my mail box with crap is one thing..but don't use my mobile phone as your toilet especially if I keep asking you to stop.

Very tired of asking to be removed... so perhaps my tone is less than polite... my bad

i hope none of the ANZACs on ITM had any feelings of being dishonoured....

they are just a small business trying to promote some growth, they should have taken you off the spam list but I think its a bit over the top to start cussing them out and accusing them of disrespecting the fallen ANZACS

Ordering takeaway often requires a telephone number.... but I can understand your position and response.... when I used to pay for 2min noodles at Woolworths they didn't ask my details either.

maybe you should get a new number and cook at home a bit more if ordering takeaway complicates your life so much

Fascinating response... but one without merit.

It’s as if no thought process went before it, well done.

You must be right though as it sounds SO logical...

All I must do is pick up a cook book or two, buy a new frying pan or baking dish and my dilemma of people trying to sell me shit via text message will be a thing of the past.

Thanks for your insight.

BTW... If you can spare the time I'd love to know your opinion on the housing bubble in the united states and how it relates to our market specifically NSW.... burst? keep going?

It would be a shame to let that brain of yours ever rest.

you're welcome, glad you found the advice helpful. wouldn't recommend you enter any property market if ordering takeaway has caused this amount of frustration.

What did the original text contain? If it just said 'ANZAC day special' or something, that's par for the course and not particularly disrespectful - file under everyday annoying spam. But if it said 'lest we forget how delicious our two for one meal deal is' it's another story.

The orignial text contained symbols to which I think I have seen such before... I wish it was something as simple as"ANZAC day special"

I must admit it though... it did take some time and I believe I have seen these symbols before in my travels...

I believe that these symbols are what the Elders have referred to as simply text.... sandscipt or letters...

i also believe that historians will refer to the collaboration of these symbols as sentences, phrases or even books!

Not sure how this will decrease the text messages though...

The junk txt upsets you so much that you have to fight with the txt'er and also make a thread about it?

You seem pretty cool, calm and collected Adz, i'm sure you are a complete treasure to work with or be around at home when the stress kicks in.

Yes sir, it annoyed me so I made a thread about it. To make matters worse you then chose to waste your precious time by responding to it..

I must have missed the memo that indicated to you that the ITM forum discussions meant more than a 5 cent piece in a urinal.

Help yourself and as you were. I suppose...

I think if you had made thread about people playing loud music on public transport, people who cut in lines or drama at work and how it shits you, you would have gotten positive replies or at least other stories agreeing with you.

The problem is, most people just delete those txt's, not harass someone who is more than likely making fuck all each week and only doing what their boss has told them to do.

In terms of annoyance that rates pretty low, in terms of over reaction that rates somewhere around the "wanker" mark.

i never realised the term 'lest we forget' is reserved exclusively for dead soldiers?

to the original OP:
TBH it's your attitude that does no favours. I agree that their marketing strategy is pretty damn shit, but you don't really need to stoop to their level.

Businesses need to make sure that they comply with the Spam Act.
The link should help you with more information.

I reckon you didn't go far enough. You should wait until dawn, then creep near to their shop, before charging in with bayonets fixed. It's what the ANZACs would've done.

Double bonus points if the shop owners are Turkish.

Normally I'd side with the OP in terms of hating cheap advertising tactics but he's made such a prick of himself I just want them to send another message.

Clearly I overstepped the mark and reacted badly...

Perhaps if i hadn't requested that they no longer send me spam messages to my phone both via text message and over the phone to the store previously I wouldn't have lost my nut.

To make matters worse their timing of when the message got to my phone was pretty much bang on the worst possible time of the day for me. I don't want to be offered a discount on meat when i am honoring my Pop and his brothers that never came home.

Hopefully me coming across as a dick will actually have a better result of them removing me from their weekly text spam that i usually do just delete. The polite requests have so far gone unanswered.
