I don't know if this is some new kind of Sales Strategy, but Groupon seems to think that if you piss your prospective Local Businesses off, somehow this is going to increase their sales & participation. We made the decision that Groupon was a big LOSE for this one particular business. I talked to the pushy saleslady from Groupon who seemed to think that they were doing businesses a favor by cutting their retail prices by half, taking two-thirds of the half that remained, and once the business was losing money at each transaction, advertise the hell out of it to maximize the number of sales. Running a business into the ground by causing it to lose money, the whole time going on & on about how this is somehow a "good thing". These people are fucking retarded. Retarded crack-heads, is what they are. I feel sorry for the poor businesses that get raped by these people. In some niches, there are hoards of mobile groupon shoppers, that follow these deals around like 60-year old whores (in wheelchairs) follow the Grateful Dead (still). These nomadic chiselers have absolutely NO sense of business loyalty and like locusts will descend upon an unsuspecting small business, take everything and anything that can get (for free) and leave the dehydrated carcass behind while the fly off to find more fresh meat. And somehow, Groupon maintains, this is a good thing. I think it's pure bullshit. I think Groupon lies and manipulates unsuspecting businesses into getting raped. The only people making money in these transactions is Groupon. Sleazy people, too. They start calling and emailing various personnel in a business, and start causing trouble between them. Not sure how getting an entire company to fucking hate your asses is supposed to make you money, but we all fucking hate you now, and are watching expectantly, hoping you go OUT of business.
