Default The Complaint Department Tribute Thread

As I have noticed that the complaint thread is no longer The Complaint Department®, I have decided to make a tribute thread to the history of complaints here at Sitcoms Online.

The complaining first started out in the form of a thread called "The Whine and Complain Thread Du Jour" by a member who no longer posts here. Please feel free to add details. I don't even remember the person's username (it's on the tip of my tongue) because I was just a NOOB at the time. Eventually the thread evolved into simply just "The Whine and Complain Thread"

In 2004, I decided to rename the thread The Complaint Department which I stole from a skit on All That (a show that many of us grew up with in the 90's) in which a ditzy and moronic woman who works at a complaint department misunderstands people's complaints and/or suggests ridiculous ways to try and fix the problem. For example, there was one skit where someone was complaining about a faulty hat (and for some reason also happened to have their cat along with them). Long story short, she mistook the cat for the hat and the hat for the cat (kept petting it) and shoved the cat into a box and down a shoot to be shipped away. Actually, it could've been a dog. I don't rememer the details. It isn't important.

Although complaint department skits are hard to come by nowaday, you can view one such one where the woman meets the Good Burger dude and falls in love with him because of their similar personalities. Skit starts at the 1:19 mark. If only we could all remember to spank the bra and send it to Australia instead of Switzerland...perhaps the world could be a better place. ENJOY. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOwskIH3p_c

Complaint Department Lady: Complaint Department.
Megan Marples: Hello, my name is Megan Marples, that is. And this is my dog, Sniffles.
Complaint Department Lady: Is that your complaint?
Megan Marples: Why, no it is not! You see, I bought this hat and it has a hole in it. Observe the whole.
Complaint Department Lady: [grabbing dog] Well, this is the weirdest hat I've ever seen.
Megan Marples: No, no, no, no. That is my dog. This is my hat.
Complaint Department Lady: [placing dog on head] How's it look?
Megan Marples: Well, it looks like you have my dog on your head.
Complaint Department Lady: I feel pretty.
Megan Marples: Okay, as I was saying. This hat has a hole in it.
Complaint Department Lady: ...Whatcha doin'?
Megan Marples: Complaining.
Complaint Department Lady: May I hear your complaint?
Megan Marples: Well, I sure as heck hope so! This hat has an unwanted hole in it!
Complaint Department Lady: [opening dog's mouth] Well, you're right. There's a hole right here! This hat is defective.
[throws dog down defective shoot]
Megan Marples: No, that's my dog!
Complaint Department Lady: [grabbing hat] Oh, and what a cute dog it is! Who's a cutie? Who's a cute little...
[checks under the hat]
Complaint Department Lady: boy? You are!
Megan Marples: You are loony!
[walks off]
Complaint Department Lady: Sir, you forgot your dog!

man, that was the best show ever until kenan and kel left and the writers started pissing all over it.

Meh, I more or less remember some of that skit haha. I guess it WAS a dog.

Agreed. And Lori Beth Denberg should've become a huge star.

As I said before, it is from the skit The Complaint Department from All That.

Goodburger is great, too, but it wouldn't make sense as the title for a complaint thread. Maybe Bad Burger, but not so much.

In the first 10 minutes I posted this thread it said there were 61 views and now it says 182. I'm going to go ahead and say something is wrong.

Either way, let us appreciate the art of complaining and thank the person who no longer posts here for the wonderful idea of a complaint thread. Thank you, person whose name I can't remember. I remember you were really popular here back in the day.

LOL i spent like 2 hours watching old Vital Information sketches last night.

favorite one is either "if it's the 4th of July and Santa comes down your chimney....RUN LIKE THE WIND THAT AINT SANTA!!!!" or "It's not polite to push your friend Billy off the roof and say 'Look neighbors, it's raining Billy'!"

Ashlee, you're thinking of Krystal Lake.

And I grew up with All That. Loved Amanda Bynes... my fave person out of the entire cast.
