Unconditionally Guaranteed for Life

you don't see that a lot anymore these days..
when i was looking for a job - some time ago, when there were still more around - i wanted to work for whatever company who would offer products or services with such an approach: be the best, go the farthest for the customer, try the hardest.. sony vaio laptops was one place i really appreciated for that, among few.. knowig how demanding i am myselves, how much i want out of a product or service provider, i wanted to commit - through an employer - to deliver such service..
a few years along the line: not easy to find such products.. in fact, I'm quite happy this blogger guy mentions this, just to know that customer satisfaction still exists.. **insert company name here**, employer of yours truly, is getting lost in 'keeping focus', 'client focus initiatives', 'client satisfaction surveys', 'employee surveys', 'action plans' and more of that cr**..

to end on more positive note, let me try to list the few things of which i am so positively happily suprisingly satisfied you should know about it: the bugaboo, digital canon ixus (400), all of the babybjorn stuff we have, dell flatscreen, toshiba laptop(1994!!!, still going ok for the office applications, on win'95), marks and spencer shirts (i bought the last ones before they closed all of their shops in belgium - the collar, those sleeves!!), a 'kitchen devil' knife, my giant samsonite travelling case..
i sincerely hope these products will support me for a few years longer, as i don't even have a clue whether they are indeed guaranteed for life - i kinda hoped i never have to find out...
