It seems obvious, but complaining about bad service can really make a difference.\n\n\nSometimes the best way to make a fuss is via social media, as Comcast recently learned. Other times it\u2019s best to start with a less inflammatory tactic by writing an old-fashioned letter or email. But sometimes it\u2019s hard to know the best way to structure that letter and you may not know where to send the complaint.\n\n\nUSA.gov, a portal to many government sites and services, has posted a handy\u00a0five-step letter-writing wizard. The wizard includes a database of many corporate addresses, a feature that can save a bit of time.\n\n\nI\u2019m aware that most of us are altogether capable of writing a literate letter and searching for an address to send it. But sometimes it is hard to get motivated, and the easier a task is to accomplish, the more likely you are to do it.\n\n\nComplaining often pays off and may make the company a bit less likely to abuse other customers. You\u2019ll see a sample letter below. If it doesn\u2019t work you can always rant on Twitter and Facebook.\n\n\nOne tip: Don\u2019t write the letter when you\u2019re at your angriest. The person reading it on the other end is less likely to respond positively to insults than to a reasonable sounding complaint. Yeah, that sounds a bit like Miss Manners, but hey, I met her once and she\u2019s a very smart lady.
