Good on you for trying to make it rightMixed emotions this morning. Two weeks ago, we bought a MacBook Air for my wife, from a large electronics retailer. Yesterday, within the exchange window, I got an email from them about a three-day sale. Her MBA was on sale for $50 less. So I got on to a char with an agent and requested the price match. He came back a few minutes later and said "Congrats, we're crediting you $150+." I called him on it, saying I thought that was too much and was he sure. He was quiet foir three minutes and came back showing his work to get to the $150+. He included the tax in the old price but not in the new price, but he was insistent it was the right calculation. I figured, "No problem, I'll just follow up with another agent tomorrow."
So this morning, I contacted a second agent and walked her through the chat. She went away for two minutes, came back, and said, "You are absolutely right. Unfortunately, once we enter a price match credit into the system, we cannot change it for any reason, so it's our problem. We'll do better next time." So I'm feeling good that we got a great deal, good that I tried to make it right - twice - but sad that a company is a victim of its own training and policies.
I usually consume it while still in the parking lot so I can dispose of the evidence in one of their garbage cans. Just have to remember to check the teeth in the mirror before heading home.New rule:
If you sneak a large DQ Blizzard at night after your wife goes to bed, learn to hide the evidence better.
Putting the cup in the outside trash can the night before trash day may seem like a good idea, but not when said wife goes out there in the morning to throw out more trash. Oh well
pretty cool to see the kids excel isn’t it?My sons spring baseball season came to an end yesterday. After winning their regular season and dropping a nail biter to finish 2nd in their division tournament he got his first baseball champion ring for the regular season. He’s 7 and played with the 8 yr olds this season, led the team in batting avg of .833 and RBI’s, and got voted onto the all star team. Super proud of the lil guy this season.
Congratulations to your son.... freaking All Star is awesome! .833 average as a 7y.o. Kid can rake!My sons spring baseball season came to an end yesterday.

The ice cream cone was invented in 1904 at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St Louis, when an ice cream vendor ran out of dishes. He happened to be next to a waffle vendor, and inspiration struck.
I’ve been a huge fan since his Pittsburgh days! Hopefully he can stay hot. He’s getting older, it’s hard to play those chilly early season gamesBeen a bad year for him so far, nice to see him hitting better as of late. Good player for many years, but looks like age is really catching him.
Supply chain issues are a nightmare now. I don’t see how it won’t/can’t negatively affect growth. I know my company is feeling the stress of it all. Good luckIn a meeting. The customer expects to start up in December 2021. The only problem is that the major equipment now has a lead time of 22 MONTHS!!!
This supply chain issue is becoming major. I hope it does not kill this growth we are in right now.
