Bad Business, Bad, Bad Business

This post is copied from Lubbock Marine Parents website. I felt it was important enough to copy as opposed to just leaving their link for the message.

It still takes me by surprise; people like this. Wanted you to know so that you can do what comes natural ... Go off on these morons!

Retailer Insults troops
Just got a heads up on this from Texas Fred via Euphoric Reality. I'm appalled!

One of our soldiers emailed a retailer in West Allis, Wisconsin, inquiring whether they could ship floor mats to an APO address. The NCO wanted to buy better gear for his troops to sleep on. You won’t believe the company’s response*.

(Their email address is included below, if you’d like to let the company know what you think of their business.):

Do you ship to APO address? I’m in the 1st Cavalry Division stationed in Iraq and we are trying to order some mats but we are looking for who ships to APO first.

SGT Hess,

We do not ship to APO addresses, and even if we did, we would NEVER ship to Iraq. If you were sensible, you and your troops would pull out of Iraq.


Apparently, Discount-Mats prides itself on its customer service: “Outstanding Service - As a customer, you’re part of our family. You can expect friendly, courteous, responsive service before and after the sale.”

Unless you’re an American servicemember, that is. I’m sorry this cheesehead turned out to be such a bonehead. Let’s educate this loser - it’s bad business to insult our troops, doncha know?
Here is their mailing address:

Their website is "experiencing technical difficulties" - could it be that we all caused it to crash - what a shame.... NOT!

Them and Lipton Tea. I had to call Lipton. I know their stock would have fallen had I quit drinking it. Really.

And I threatened to over the Ditzi Hens.
