Yeah, yeah, yeah... I know I shouldn't be so specific about who and why but damn am I pissed at TPM and Linda.
First off, there was a possibility of me doing three track days in a row with TPM next weekend because a buddy is going all ready. So I was like, why not? I call Linda and see if she can get me a deal on doing all three days and see what she says.
So, I am a sales guy and I know the polite way to ask this type of question. The response I get from above mentioned pisser is that their organization has never offered discounts on multi day weekends and goes on to inform me that they are the cheapest track org around here and I'm already getting a deal... Hmmm, not true so I rebutle.
I correct her statments with lighthearted banter about specific group deals they offered last season (which they did), the fact that other org's I ride with are $20 bucks cheaper per day (which would save me $60 for this event), and the fact that I have paid for a decent membership with them already (highest membership fees)... and lets not forget that I did about 12 flucking days with them last year... so I'm not some newbie.
Her comment comes back as a straight no and she starts rambling on about some other track is already sold out. I don't even think she read half of my e-mail. This isn't even the track I'm talking about... So after a couple more threads back and forth... Her last statement was "Hope to see you there."
Wholly F! Are you serious?
Now I know people have bad days, etc., and I could have got her at a bad time but to say I'm pissed is an understatement. This seems to be a running theme with the "business" end of their org.
