I went up to a local gunstore yesterday with my wife and bought a few items. They have a pop machine in their entry, so we decided to get a soda, my favorite flavor cherry red. Wait that's a Stone's song.
So my wife get's hers and opens it and it just starts foaming and foaming like nothing I've seen before. 2' puddle on the floor, about 1/3 of the contents left in the can. The can is still foaming.
They're nice enough to hand me some paper towels and we spent at least 5 minutes wiping things up. Turns out the machine was set wrong and the contents were so cold the pop was supercooled. I've seen this in glass bottles with beer, where it freezes in the neck when you open it. Well this was the worst I've ever seen and like I said, it caused almost all the contents to spew out.
Ok so great, how about my money back?
1st guy--"I don't have control over the pop machine."
Me--"Ok get someone who does."
2nd guy--"I'm the manager."
Me--"I just spent 5 minutes cleaning your floor and lost all the pop in the can. I'd like my buck back." (Actually two bucks I'd bought one too thinking initially it was just dropped hard in the machine.)
2nd guy--"I spent 15 years in the military, let me tell you my philosphy..."
Me--(WTF?) "I want my two bucks back."
2nd guy--gets two bucks out the cash drawer and says something smartass.
Me--"I don't care if this is a firearms store, your machine caused the problem, I just spent time cleaning your floor, didn't get the pop, got pop on my wife's shoes that's BS."
Guy says some more totally off-the-wall arogant prick baloney. Anyway, one more crappy experience at Wade's, seems like that's all I ever get there. Oh and yeah the gun counter guys were telling some of the classic stupid lines to prospective buyers that day. "This is the mountain model (revolver), you see this (tiny insignificant) machined area, that's so if you carry it in the mountains it doesn't weigh as much." I think it was a Judge he was showing.
