    Pancake Parlor Im am very shocked usually I go once a week well looks like I be looking for somewhere else. I knew about gloria jeans as the owner is involved in that really big church "in the hills" in sydney (iykwim) In relation to mem fox I wont stop buying her books it was just an uneducated opinion. I have heard that harvey norman has overpriced furniture not good quality also bad service too! just google about harvey norman! As I have mentioned before those kiosks especially the children photo kiosk and the hand cream/ makeup and that hair straigtener one! All fast food places too

    I'm another who has boycotted telstra. We used to have everything through Telstra, until we had massive issues with them. I could be here all day posting about the issues we had with their services and their incompetent staff. We eventually disconnected our internet, mobiles, home phone and bigpond DVD service and we will NEVER use them again - no matter what.

    Basically the founder of the Pancake Parlor was a Scientologist, and took alot of things from Scientology and placed it into it's work ethic.
    One of my sisters friends from Primary School ended up working at one, and she said the contract they make you sign didn't make an ounce of sense, and they constantly bugged her to try and join the *cough* chuch. After her 3 month probation, they let her go, with no real reason as to why.
    One major thing that is quiet important to the Scientologists is the buttermilk they use for their pancakes. They believe it to be more healthier for you then regular milk, and even suggest buttermilk be used for baby formula, which some Scientologists actually do.
    There are alot of other rumors floating about, but none have really been confirmed. 1 if I remember correctly, was that in the contract was that all staff must be smiling all the time, to create positive vibes for everyone around them.

    we have out home phone with Telestra. some poor rep rang me the other day trying to talk me into connecting mobile, internet and Foxtel with them. I just and had a good spiel about how many, many issues we had with them in the past and that i will NEVER connect anything with them again. I also thanked him for reminding me about the home phone so that I can disconnect that too . We used to have internet and mobile with them too...never again. shocking service and endless, never resolved issues.

    I know two people who had food poisoning from KFC. I once bit down into my chicken burger and the patty was raw I never went back. Also, there is a store here which was shut down twice in the same week by the health department

    Since then I have learnt a lot about their inhumane treatment of chickens (like most fast food establishments) and it makes me sick to my stomach.

    After my friend told me how they made Potato and Gravy, I couldn't eat at a KFC ever again.

    a lot of the general ones i stay away from if i can have already been said.
    *i say 'if i can' because DD2 was on NAN...i tried changing her but after the 4th brand didnt work for i could no longer do it, i had to go back to what worked for her.


    im sure i if sit here and think i will come up with more but
    L'Oreal due to animal testing...this includes their company The Body shop, YES i know the body shop has 'maintained' Anita's ethics and but she is a sell out, selling to a company that test on animals pfffttt
