I readily admit, I may personify any of these types of social media fans on a given day.

Well… scratch that. I’m rarely a ranter, but I have been know to be an unhappy customer a time or two. (You have to really piss me off for me to blast you on social media. I’m not willy-nilly with publicizing my less-than-stellar brand experiences.)

Anywho… enough about me.
