Zappos, Spirit Airlines and the BoSox

Business Blog Consulting had a nice post last week about the awesome customer service of Zappos, and the horrid customer service of Spirit Airlines. Now I have never used either of these companies, I don’t fly much and I buy all my clothes (OK, not all, but most) from Ross. Actually bought a way cool pair of Rocket Dog shoes for $13 last week on clearance at Ross – way cheaper than Zappos.

Regardless, if Zappos customer service is as good as it sounds, YOU should probably buy from them.

On a completely unrelated note, the Boston Red Sox swept our Colorado Rockies in the World Series last night. I guess The Lisa was right about her beloved baseball team. Grrr…

Rockies Computers Fold Like a Lawn Chair

Our local Colorado Baseball team, the Colorado Rockies, had a bit of a SNAFU this morning with sales of their World Series tickets.

The decision was made by the team to only make the tickets available online. Unfortunately, after 8.5 Million hits, and some serious webserver meltdown, ticket sales were suspended.

The worst part, the Rockies are getting the heat for this when I’m sure they paid a princely sum of money to Paciolan to provide the online ticket sales.
