bad website gripe 

Dear websites,

It is very unlikely that I want to chat with a support person and even less likely that I want to chat with a bad chat bot.
What further decreases that likelihood is that I have just opened you for the first time to find out what your company does.
These popups, and especially fake notification alerts are not helpful in the slightest.

@yuka at least (on mobile) it's not as intrusive as other examples and the giraffe is cute
