13 weeks to fix a problem (updated with ZERO good news!)

Dear Microsoft Corporate,

I don't know why I'm having to write back a second time because I've been promised by three different people that this problem should have been corrected already, yet nothing's been done by anyone. Someone's lost my work order, my case number's changed, nothing's getting done. This is REALLY irritating.

My case number is still #105XXXXXXXXX

What do I have to do to get my games working offline again?

I am SICK of waiting on Xbox Customer Support. This is 13 weeks now.

How would you like to wait 13 weeks to not get paid?

13 weeks to get your car repaired?

13 weeks for food?

13 weeks for power? 13 weeks for internet access? 13 weeks before you get to see your kids again?


Stop making me wait. Fix this. In the time span since I've been dealing with this issue Congress has passed a bill to give every US citizen a $600 refund check. We've declared Presidential candidates and nearly finished with our primaries to declare candidates for each party. Britney Spears has been arrested or apprehended by the police 4 times. The price of oil has risen over $100 a barrel.

I could build a list here, but I fear I could fill another 13 weeks of time in filler content to get to the point of this email.


Not tomorrow, not 30 days from now, not 40 days from now, not 24 hours from now. I want them working now. I want a resolution now. I want them working from the second I hit send. And I want it without any lame duck apologies from operators who could care less about the problems. I want a resolution.

I want this case number LOCKED DUE TO IT BEING RESOLVED.

I want your case support team to have a sense of accomplishment from actually finishing out this case number, so they can go home, crack open a cold one and think to themselves, "I did a good job at work today..."

Why are these things so difficult?

Again, I'm posting this email up on Destructoid.com in hopes that this constant exposure brings to light the sloppy and inadequate customer support of Xbox Live Customer Service, and further more, I'd openly recommend that anyone that purchases MS points from Xbox Live do so with some sort of credit card service protection, because if Microsoft won't fix this lousy problem, maybe sending my creditors after you to get their money back (after they refund me my money) is enough to get the problem addressed.

About BluDesignone of us since 11:49 AM on 11.10.2006

I own a FamPuter, which is a 100% fake Famicom. And I do own Super Mario Bros. and Rockman 2 for it, which you don't. :P

I'm a 34 year old gamer. I cannot hang out with most of you, and you should not contact me to buy you cheap wine or cigarettes. I do not like jail. Seriously, I own all three consoles and I don't discriminate. Gaming is for fun, not for sissy slapfights. If you consider yourself partial to a particular console, I don't care why you don't own other consoles, I don't want to hear about it. If you're going to bitch about something, you'd better bring some hard evidence of why you're complaining if you want to cry on my shoulder.

Enjoy this wonderful picture of 2 generations coming together at last...
