Ladies night which used to be: ladies all you can drink for free to attract clientel.
Then changed to: Ladies get only 3 drink tickets for free drinks
And now it is: Ladies, you have buy a minimum amount of food from the pricey menu for 2-3 complimentary drinks....
Too bad, this used to my and my friends' favourite bar. :(

775 Av Du Mont Royal E
Hidden location in Gallerie du Parc. I try to go here whenever I can for all my spa and waxing needs because the ladies there are so friendly and they do their jobs well. You can usually find an appointment the day of. Go and check out their specials/promotions
I went to Fournier to get my luggage wheel repaired, which is difficult and expensive in Montreal. I was pleasantly surprised by both Fournier's friendly service as well as their knowledgeable expertise in the field. Their attitude towards to their customers shows that they take pride in their field of work instead trying to rip off their customers with manipulative sales techniques. I highly recommend Fournier for all your bag/luggage needs and repairs.
Unique Drinks - about $20 for a drink (they raised the prices every couple of years I hear)
I didn't know they raised the prices so I brought exact cash/change with me that night. I ended up only have about 10% for tip. The very loud and rude waitress came back over to demand more tip - if I had known that they raised the prices again for the same amount of alcohol as last year, I wouldn't think it was worth paying for. The rude waitress the rotten cherry on top...
Went to a certain bank for the third time for the same problem. What is the point in apologizing and grovelling about their utter incompetence when they do not take any actions ot fix it (reporting to supervisor, better training, fixing bugs in computer systems, contacting customer service representatives).
I needed a new card since January 2010 and it is now June and I still have not received it. I called the number on the back of the card, I went in person 3 times and spoke to my bank manager. Consistently, I have asked for it to be mailed to my apartment in Montreal. The bank I went to is located at McGill College in Montreal and it has been giving me a big headache. I went in to see the tellers in person to get everything resolved and so far, I had the pleasure of taking unpaid time off work and speaking to 3 representatives who kept promising to fix the problem. It is June and I am still waiting for my card and I have taken my last day I can afford from my personal time to address this company's incompetent system/staff and it is not a good use of my time and energy. I strongly advise they fix this problem before further damaging their reputation. I already took the time to come in 3 times and spoke to 3 people - not including the time I spent on hold over the telephone.
Today, I went in and was furious. I think I almost made that trainee teller cry.
Seriously, dealing with people's incompetence is a huge pet peeve of mine. In marketing research, they say that for every good service you receive, the customer is likely to promote it 4 people and for every bad service, the word of mouth would spread to about 10. I hope at least these bad companies get a slap to the wrist and learn their lesson. If a child can learn a simple lesson about making others feel bad, surely employees with fancy degrees can too.
