The annual snowboarding trip is coming up and each year I upgrade one, or two, of my gear (gotta look good on the snow, yo). But this year, while deciding to find new pants, I was thrown a curve ball.*
While watching WhiskeyMilitia.com for deals, I spotted some super sweet 686 pants, so I ordered them. They arrived a few days later and, to my surprise, they weren’t Avocado in color. They were Red. Blood red.
I didn’t really want Red pants, so I contacted the peeps at WhiskeyMilitia.com and told them that my order was messed up. I explained that I had ordered the Avocado pants, but instead had received the Red ones (which I couldn’t find anywhere on the web). They said that mistake had been happening quite a bit recently and they would look into options on fixing it.
They came back with a response that it was their fault and they took 100% responsibility. Unfortunately, there was nothing I could do to return the pants and that I would have to sell them on eBay, or something, if I wanted to recoup my money.
That was an unacceptable answer in my book, so I contacted the manager, told him the story and demanded a refund. He said that he’d look into the situation and get back to me by the end of the day.
His solution was simple – check out how sweet you’d look in these sweet pants (see below). Dude somehow went to my MySpace page, downloaded a photo and Photoshopped it onto the red pants.
* In no way is this story real. I just thought it would be fun to make a stupid photo in Photoshop and pawn it off as a real story. Actually, I fooled Todd with this made up crap. Sorry Todd.
