The agony of trying to unsubscribe | James Veitch 5
It happens to all of us: you unsubscribe from an unwanted marketing email, and a few days later another message from the same company pops up in your inbox. Comedian James Veitch turned this frustration into whimsy when a local supermarket refused to take no for an answer. Hijinks ensued.


The TED Talks channel features the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and more.

The fact that he kinda snickers at his own jokes makes it about a million times better.

Based on James' recommendations I went out and bought the toaster he suggested. It's rubbish; I tried to toast some hummus and the bloody thing burst into flames.

He missed out on the best part. Start contacting customer service with some of those case numbers, and ask why no one has contacted you about them.
