    Does this annoy anyone else?

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to says see how you all feel on this, anyways iknow how many times I hear this but I think it's annoying as shit when people can't pronounce Jack3d right! Like its Jack3d one word not this jack 3d, or jacked 3d shit like can you not read bro! I work retail and I hear it at least twice a day like STFU and get out of my store until you can say it right next time I'm gonna just mess with someone that says "do you have jack 3d?" and say we don't carry it if they say it wrong or I haven't heard of it and then say but we do have Jack3d haha. But does anyone else feel me on this one haha?

    Never gave it that much thought...I suppose as long as you can tell what they're asking for it doesn't really matter.

    Maybe they are having a hard time pronouncing it because they are filling their body with worthless junk that is mostly fillers. Next time they ask for it, take them to the creatine and say, "Take this and work on your squat, bro!" If they say they have done that already......send them to SI!

    Welcome to customer service. You need to appreciate your customers and the money they are spending. Provide excellent customer service and help them understand the products they need to achieve their goals. You also need to provide excellent service to the organization that has employed you and go above and beyond the call of duty in helping that organization succeed. After all, the more revenue they make, the greater your opportunity for career advancement. Customers should always be treated with the utmost respect - they are a rare commodity in this current economic climate.

    To be honest, if customers can't remember or pronounce the name - that would indicate that the marketing folks that came up with the name were overpaid. The name looks too cutsey for me.

    FYI, id be too afraid that if i go into a nutrition store and ask to get Jacked - i'd end up with a hand job from some guy - not my thing. Just saying...

    Lol, especially if they are older. Alot of people don't speak the pwned jack3d kinda language.

    yea, its an unnecessary complication. Whats the point of putting out a product with a name that only 18 year olds understand. You are instantly alienating a huge section of your potential audience. Of course, maybe the point of the product is that it needs that name because older folks will see it for snake oil and avoid...

    Plus, it's something I would do lol.

    I wanted to get a movie called "Layer Cake" but the box had a big 4 on it, so I called it 4 layer cake. Apparantly so did everyone that rented it.

    I guess they are appealing to the younger people with text talk.

    They might be better off appealing to older people with money!!

    Like Shane said, older people have probably been around and purchase items that are proven (creatine, glutamine, protein) before newer products. Of course I have no clue if Jack 3D works well or not

    Good point. No idea if it works either. But if they can't get a decent name for the product then im not convinced they can come up with a decent formulation either...

    Rule # 1. Never buy a supplement that looks like it was bought at a firework stand.
