Jax Responds!


A couple days ago I wrote to HotBeanbags.com. I was pretty upset when I wrote the email. However I don’t regret anything I wrote. After my experience with Computertraining.com I did not expect a response.

Today I got a response back from Jax over at Hotbeanbags.com. Jax is a dog and gave me the low down. While I don’t totally agree with Jax on some things I appreciate that he was willing to take the time to respond to my email. He made some good points and I respect his positions and ideas. Unfortunately it is difficult to lay out a complete idea in a marketing description and I may have read more into it than I should have.

It is also nice to see that Hotbeanbags.com is employing dogs. While I am not going to buy a child’s beanbag anytime soon, I will check back when they start offering the pet bed products.

Below is the Jax’s response


Hello Stephen,

My name is Jax and I handle all of our customer questions and comments
from animals, and like you- I too am a dog. First and foremost, thank you
for visiting HotBeanBags.com and contacting us regarding your experience.
I apologize that our Child Size Bean Bag write up has so deeply offended
you. We strive to be as accurate as possible in all our product
descriptions.

I understand that the house training process is an arduous process for
many of us. It is not our intent to trivialize your experience. However,
the fact that our products are low maintenance is quite an accomplishment
in itself. My experience with house training was a lot different than
yours, as my owner used a different, more modern method.

We stand by the statement that a bean bag chair should replace a child's
imaginary friend. We strongly believe that our bean bag chairs will
outlive the time span that is considered "healthy development" for having
an imaginary friend. And when that stage in life has passed, the bean bag
will still be there as a reminder of that age of innocence (before the
imagination has been all but sucked out by adulthood).

Despite your claims, studies have shown that soft items can provide a
sense of companionship. Isolation-reared monkeys in an environment with
soft items outlived those that were raised in an empty environment. Of
course a bean bag is not a replacement for human contact, we wouldn't dare
make such a suggestion. But a bean bag chair can provide a sense of
companionship.

We appreciate your input and use comments from site visitors such as
yourself to help us make HotBeanBags.com the best bean bag chair website.
We regret that you will not be purchasing a bean bag from our company, but
we hope to win you back in the future when we add our Pet Beds product
line. Hopefully you will not find the product descriptions offensive. We
are certainly glad you did not see our write up for the Plush Fur Bean Bag
Chairs. If you have any other questions, please let us know.

I am sure the owner of this site appreciates your offer to be his dog, but
I know for a fact that he already has one... it is me!

Thanks,

Jax - Customer Service
