    I just got an e-mail from Midway wishing me a Happy Birthday and offering me the largest discount in the history of mankind on my next order.

    There is a caveat however, I must place my order prior to my actual birthday but that doesn't really present a problem. Why would I wait... I don't even buy green bananas and only spend a half hour watching 60 Minutes.

    I found it a bit odd that they included a post script to their message, it read as follows;

    Please do not inform Little Stevie of the generous birthday offer extended to you, we purposely do not send one to him because he's a slug flatlander.

    I'm paraphrasing of course. :whistling:

    Jack, should you decide to further yank Stevie's panties and place a discounted order with Midway, how about shooting me a PM describing how well (or not) your shipped goods were packaged. Two different orders received in the last 7 days had damaged goods inside.

    While Midway has already shipped replacement items, it was a bit disappointing. BUT, they did make good on the items and in making me comfortable with their solution. I'm just wondering if the discussions I had with their customer service rep ever got back to the shipping department.

    Probably not. I bought a holster there . It was used quite a bit when it arrived. I called and complained. They were out of stock, so just sent the holster back. They put my request for a new one on B/O). 3 weeks later it was shipped. Wouldn't you know they sent me the same holster I had before. So they just stuck it back in Inventory. I called again. I was nice about it. Although I noticed about two weeks after I sent it back again. They had one in stock. I never did re-order it again.

    So, does this mean I have to tell them my birthday and check the box that says they can send me e-mail.

    I'd double check, no, triple check your total when checking out. With your half blind vision, them 6's look awful lot like them 8's.

    Tell the truth... they add a percent for every year til it gets to 75% off then start back the other way again to 10%, then they start all over again...

    What Jack's not admitting is he's at the mid-point of his THIRD such cycle!:whistling:

    No, but I've been to the Bass Proshops store in Manteca. Imagine my surprise when I went in thinking that they only sold boats and fishing poles and I found endcaps with eight pound containers of Unique for sale. :wow:

    Remember Lenny in "Of Mice and Men?"
    Tell me about the Midway store in Columbia.
