This is the main website for the spa. They are horrible. They kept calling for you to go down for an appointment and they won’t give up till you say a yes. So since its a free trial (Subjected to sales talk, bla bla bla, take a few thousand dollars package for god knows how many crappy sessions…), I just wanted to go use it since the location was near Yohan’s office. I could pick Yohan or something before or after that.
So I made my appointment for the
Hello. You think your Roxy Square is accessible from all parts of Singapore is it. Please don’t waste customers time if you cannot offer them anything. And its not like I’m writing this without any clarification, but check out the conversation. They took

Your booking officers have been calling me time after time to come for a
crappy one hour treatment and I finally made my way to Roxy Square today at
2pm. And I found out that no appointment was made despite the message I
received confirming my appointment. How can your company waste potential
customers time like that? Be rest assured I will be sharing this matter in
every possible beauty forums, facebook and all other social media.

Ok. I agree I was rude in my email to them. But when you make somebody make a wasted trip, it is a big no no. Be it appointment with friends or going to teach my students or even going for a spa treatment. This is because, I make time to travel all the way there, set aside an hour or two for the appointment, and travel all the way to my next destination. The whole thing is at least two hours. If you play somebody out, can you imagine the time wasted, travelling cost etc? Imagine how much that person wasted when you play them out.
Look at their reply. I don’t think they are very apologetic. If they are, they should offer more than just a “we sincerely apologize” and goodbye! Thank god we don’t have to deal with this nasty customer. I agree I am nasty, but I am reasonable and good. If you are good, I recommend people, Is how support and I share. If you suck, good luck to you.
