Date Posted: December 26, 2003  Action Line Complaint:   Wellington Cab Co Inc.  Category: Business Complaint

Address

13833 Wellington Trace
Wellington
Florida, 33401
County: Palm Beach
  561 333-0181
Overview
On December 26, 2003 at 7: 43 a.m. a call was made to The Wellington Cab Co. by Michael, an 18 year old trying to go to work.

He was informed that he would have to pay an additional eight dollars for in advance or they would not send the cab.

Michael had ordered a cab the previous week and when he found out he had a ride he cancelled it. The Wellington Cab co. statement was that he never cancelled the Cab. The editors of The Palm Beach Times were personally aware of the cancellation call and thereby confirm it was made.

The Times called other Cab companies including Yellow Cab Company and asked them if they ever charged for a missed cab fare even if it was not cancelled. The call to Yellow was made at 10:31 on December 26, 2004. Two sources at Yellow cab were adamant that not only do they not do that, they believe it is illegal. We are in the process of checking all pertinent codes and information regarding this matter and will update this complaint on December 31st or before.

On December 26, 2003 around 8:30 a.m. The Palm Beach Times called The Wellington Cab Co. regarding this matter and spoke to Dennis at Wellington Cab Co.

Dennis was unapologetic and reiterated the claim that Michael did not call to cancel and went on further to state that: the 18 to 21 year olds or so, those, well they tend to be more difficult and we have a service to uphold.

We are unclear if this is age discrimination an excuse or just random words unconnected to a realistic explanation.

The Times called back at 11:00 a.m. or thereabout to see if Dennis would like to go on the record and have his statements recorded. He told The Times that he was not talking to us and hung up.

Further, there are other pending matters that will be addressed with our follow up.

Overview
On December 5th 2003 at 2:52 p.m. we called the Harris School Uniforms Company regarding a complaint posted below. The Girl that answered (she did not give her name) was told that we were calling from the Palm Beach Times. We asked for the manager/owner regarding a complaint and were told to hold. Within a minute the line went dead. We called back at 2:56 p.m. and asked if we were disconnected intentionally. The girl answering the phone did not answer. We again requested the manger/owner. We were told that the manager was on the other line. She was informed this was about a complaint filed with us and left a message with our number if they wished to address it. Due to this conversation the attitude and actions taken by Harris School Uniforms we concur with the Public complaint submitted below.

On November 21 (Friday) after school I went to purchase 2 pants and 1 sweater for my son. On Monday morning the 24 my son got ready for school. After 15 minutes of wearing the new pants from Harris School Uniforms my son said his legs were itchy and started scratching desperately. I had to exchange his pants and take him to school. When I picked him up at 4pm we went directly to Harris Prep Shop to exchange them for cotton pants. The owner in a nasty way said that both pants were already used and washed. . When could he possibly used them If I bought them on Friday after school? and my son was wearing different school pants for that day? . I don't want the money back but I want to file a complaint because of her attitude. She noticed I was Spanish and maybe that was the reason of her harassment and not because I took the tickets off the pants. The pants were never used, brought them back in the same bag. We left the store with no pants and no money.
