Mickie "sucks" place
“Has anyone ever dealt with these peeps? I ordered a Marmot "never winter" from their clearance sale for $139 on april 15th. They only had long and left hand zip left in their availibilty chart. It did not matter to me, so I ordered it. I paid with my Paypal account (A nice feature they offer). So the payment was sent and received immediately. I sent quick follow up email asking if the order was confirmed. In this email I also asked if they had the Bora 40 still available at approx $140? I recived a email back stating that their where none left. I assumed they meant the Bora 40 ?
I assumed my mistake. When in fact it was for the bag. So here I'm waiting for my new bag to come a week goes by and I'm trying to be patient. but the waiting for gear blues made me pick up the phone Thursday 4/22 and call. I called and talked with the girl, she was kinda stressed due to what ever was going on in their office. So I was nice and sympathetic and then asked her about my bag. She said I sent you a email saying we where out of the left zip... I explained that I had asked 2 questions in that email and had assumed it was for the pack, my fault the ole ASS-out U and Me" So I said well it does not matter what zip I will take any zip ya got with a smile and a laugh. she said she would email me with what they had and to email her back and she will send it asap. Well I waited all day Thursday and part of Friday. NO EMAIL! So I get back on the phone and call again to get a guy, who I think is the owner and explaind quickly whta I was calling for. He was not apologetic or barely even concerned and said hang on. He transfered me to a phucking VM... so I left a message and waited again....Friday afternon... no response... they got my money and cant reply! WTF! so now Im getting a little frustrated... but I kept my cool.... Over the weekend I did some ebay searching and found that "mickieplace" had listed a few Arroyo's on there. one they had a starting bid of $179 and another they had a starting bid of $199, so I figured I would call back on Monday and ask if I paid the extra $40 bucs they would send me an Arroyo, Remember they had all Maromot bags on Clearance.... So I called 915am Monday 4/26 and talked to the same girl who again seemed wicked busy.... she looked on ebay and saw the bags... She said she would give me one for the $199. I said well what about $179 starting bid one. I said I'm going hiking this coming weekend and needed a bag... She said "we cant do that".... I said well I really just needed the Never Winter bag for the fall spring summer and wanted a down bag. I found a deal and was happy with, but their system was not updated and they made the mistake. I said I really did not budget the extra $60 for a bag.... she said "ZIPPO nothing nada"....Remember the whole time I never got a sorry from anyone, in all honesty I actually apologized to them a few times just because I felt bad...Finally I was about to blow, so I said, "okay forget it just send my money back to paypal and I will scramble to look for another bag"....She said in a pissy tone, OPK I will send it back" click!
I recived my money on the 29th.... 2 weekes they had it... no bag, no sorry, we phucked on our end... no consideration to even try to please a customer, sh-tty communication.... I dont know maybe I was to blame... I just know they will NOT get any my business or referals.... I should known better then to stray from BBinkley and www.backpacking deals.com
.... so there's my story and Im sticking to it!!!! LOL”
“man that is messed up. i deal with customer service all the time and that is just bullcrap.
first off, whats the phone number?
2nd send them viloins special link to his website. that will learn him.
when do you need the bag by?”
“mickie used to post offen on backpacking.net forums.
Very good looking lady, she had her picture on her posts. She rairly posts anymore after starting Mickie's Place. Kinda sounds like binks' posting now, ha ha.
Sucks you got such bad service.”
“i'll put them on my list where not to buy. that's just totally redicilous. (sp?)”
“Her communication to you should have been more clear as to what they were out of. It's not your fault, snafu...”
I did not know Mickies was a hottie, I may have just paid the extra $60 and asked her for a date...lol j/k...
Gem, I may still buy from them, I purdy much believe in the 3 strikes UR out....They do have some good deals...But I wanted to see if others have had trouble, if so they would get one strike...more then likely I will stick with the BBinkster....
Bit, thanks dude :-)”
“I would really have a hard time ordering from a site that looks like that. If a merchant can't take credit cards, that's at least one strike right there.”
“when do you need the bag?”
“I was going to NH with a few friends up there, but they have since cancelled so it works out that I did not get stuck... I would now need one before I go on a hike somewhere, which at this time I have nothing planned. yet...LOL I will search for another deal...Thanks Maple....
Hey Maple I got my tickets for July 11 at Yankee stadium, and working on my tickets for July 10th (old timers day). Taking the XGF/GF down for her first time to the stadium....”
I agree, but I did like the paypal deal though.
maybe you should send your "link"”
“day game? maybe we all can hook up afte the game?”
“Saturday at 4pm and sunday at 1pm we will be staying over on monday to go around the city.....when the time gets closer I will through ya an email...”
“i am trying to get tickets from my company to that game or sunday game.
cool. i am sure we ca hook up sometime whle you are here.
whats up with that?”
“snafu, please don't tell us you are back with that crazy woman again.”
“Get four for the Sat game and I will buy 2 off you....I will send you $$$ asap....
XGF/GF that is my old GF that I was with for about 4 years, we have reconciled and have a better relationship now. If we are still together, I hope, by july she will be going with me to the game and maybe to the TT Utica car camping trip. If something happens before then I will just take a buddy. I have hotel reservations at the marriot for sat and sun nights....”
“if it does not work out, you can crash with us LOL”
“"....that's just totally redicilous. (sp?)"
maybe thats the REEEKY REECARDO spelling...lol”
snafu, you have the correct name.
“Dang it! I just told you not to tell me that! ;-)”
“Oh, thanks for the offer maple, we will see 2+ months away... I could be in alsaka by then....lol”
old post but my answer
“I just saw this 3 years later....
Anyway, sorry about your experience. yes, that sucks.
We moved from CA in Dec 03 to Tennessee and were physically building our store (which opened in June 04). All our stuff was in boxes and crates scattered about everywhere. No one knew what was going on or what we had. It really sucked. And our service really sucked.= then.
All I can do is offer my apologies!
“Wow, I think he should get some gift cards, coupons, something out of that.”
“He can email me if he is still on.”
“So is the service better now? I might drop by to see the hot sales chicks.”
“He's the one who was mistreated.
The onus is on you to make it right, not him.”
“Just speaking for myself. I would be impressed if someone who gave me bad service three years ago, contacted me out of the wild blue to make it right.”
“That's what I'm saying.
They need to contact him, not the other way around.”
“Already emailed him....
But it is a yahoo address and those are often transitional.”
“well, for one, i'm rather pleased to see the response. Better late than never.”
“No response :(
If he ever comes around, he/she can email me.”
“He's not been around here for quite some time either.”
Mickies Place - Home of the Sasquatch
“First of all, Mickie is not pretty, young or hot. I believe she is old, nasty and fat. Many people use images of people they want to look like as their own image. It seems she has not been around in some time because she is too busy getting fat, old and ugly. I saw an image a few years ago while googling around, and I swear to God, I started to go blind. I'm lucky to still have my vision, but came close to filing a lawsuit for pain and suffering from viewing the Sasquatch.. Unless she has had major reconstructive surgery, you may go blind as I temporarily did... I invite anyone to come to Celina, Tennessee to check out this rare living Sasquatch... You will be VERY dissappointed if you wish to see "hot sales chicks." -- not in bumblecrap Celina, TN.. Better look elsewhere for that... I think it would be a far reaching statement to think such a heavy hairy woman ever goes hiking, or can even withstand natural sunlight.. I heard about a dayhike she went on some time back, where she complained the whole time, stunk, and basically ruined the day for everyone. Why do you think she was run out of California? It wasn't because her beauty was blinding in a good way. Just ask her poor, poor, husband...
Mickie droppin it like its HOT!
“Go here for a picture and judge for yourself...BEWARE: viewing picture may cause fatal errors to your computer and, more importantly, prolonged viewing may result in blindness!
I mean, that's GOT to be good till the last drop!
Hey, "hot sale's chick," I know a great dermatologist that can take care of that growing lifeform on your left cheek! With those genes, we can't wait to see the offspring!
Is it just me or do you think she looks like Saddam Hussein with bad hair and makeup?
Just more proof that a trip to "Glamour Shots" coupled with airbrushing can only do soo much... And since that pic was taken in 2003 or earlier, Only the good Lord, or the few people that live in Celina,TN,know how much worse the reality truly is.
I think that picture is a great tool for you men who take your wives for granted. Because at the end of the day, I think you should smile knowing you don't have to goto bed and start the day with a (enter any noun of your choice here.)
(Sasquatch seems to be the most popular)”
