Has a company's spokesperson ever turned you off to their product or service?

Yes, when they can't pronounce the product (Hūm-ear-a, NOT "Hūm-air-a"!) or the disease (it's MESSOthelioma, not "MEESOthelioma"!). Drives me up the wall.

Mispronouncing medical terminology in a medical ad is unconscionable. I.e. Vena Cava, A Fib. Worse in med shows where I know they pay a "doc" big bigs to correct.

Agreed! After my four years of high school Latin, I got my daughter through Medical Terminology class with an A! It seems like fewer and fewer people are studying Latin these days.

There is a radio ad for an anti snore device. I think it's called Yppah (pronounced Zippah). The spokesperson is so annoying I can't listen to the ad and I would NEVER buy the product.

No. I judge a product or service based solely on its quality and how well it fits my needs.

I used to really like Lincolns. Matt McC though....I don't know if I could drive one without hearing him say "that's a bug bull," everytime I got in the driver's seat.

Yes, aggressive sales tactics are annoying and I refuse to buy anything if the representative is overly aggressive. I also dislike it when someone walks up to me and tries to sell me something.

I never had any interest in any Oxyclean product while Billy Mays was yelling at me.

I'd be happy to see Geico's gecko take a little hike, too.
