by up standing corporate giant. Is this the American way.

Re: Second Inquiry Silage wrap.

To whom it may concern. I have already informed your corporation about my: Hesston haying equipment dealer, Vermeer haying equipment dealer, and Anderson haying equipment dealer that hay wrapping materials or supplies are not yet available for our farming uses in Middle Michigan.
What do you think we are oiling our snow blowers?
I want to know what kind of mental giant in your firm is deciding when, where and how I am to do my haying.
Now my John Deere and New Holland dealers have taken an interest in my operations. One wanting to sell me a tractor the other a pair of hay rakes.
I further understand since my last E-Mail your firm has supposedly shipped Michigan hay wrap last Friday, and again just this last Monday. Is this the efficiency we farmers are to be led to expect now that we have purchased the equipment you want us to use your products in?
If your firm is unable to supply us the product materials in a timely manner we need in our Spring farming operations, perhaps your firm can suggest comparable materials and where we may purchase them.
Again, I whole heartedly, I thank you your cooperation in these matters.

Maybe we should all contact them individually and threaten a boycot. Everone knows a farmer other than the ones that visit this site. So, why not get a thing started on a scaled downed version of Bill O'Rielly's boycot of French imports. And, after we wreck AEP industries, we can wreck Midas and on an on until somebody get's the message. That'll plumb the backside up........gfp

Hittem Texas. For years corporate America treated its workers like krap and acted as thoguh they were not only unneeded but a social burden also. Now it looks like they don't even care about the buyers of their products. I can only guess they make all their money in the stock markets any more and need not fiddle with us riff raff bottom feeders that do the work.

Got it through finally.
Big corps know how to pis off little guys. Without all us little ones, the big ones would not have a market. I sometimes wonder where their inconciderate heads are.

had a muffler and tailpipe installed on my truck by Meineke mufflers in March. Used to do those things myself. In the Yellow pages they advertise giving a senior discount. Generally I don't even mention a discount when I buy something, but this time I looked at the bill and thought it was a little high. So, I asked them as I was paying " how about the senior discount?"
They looked at me like I was crazy, and I pointed out that it was in the tel. book. Still no comment. I wrote Meineke an Email and got a reply. They said they would contact the shop involved and hoped the matter would be resolved. Still have not heard from them. You have to know I won't be going back there. Guess I will drop the headquarters another letter. Business must be too good. Have a good one fellas

Morning boys..Ret ,If you pay others to do a job you could do yourself then you pay much more.Why dont you save a lot of money next time and the work is good to give a person something to do.You get satisfaction for a job well done and you get to keep three forths of the money that you would have lost if you would have let George do it.Think about it!

I spent a lifetime rebuilding wrecks, splicing frames, sectioning bodies, you name it. Retired at 62. Up to 4 years ago I still would have done the job myelf. Unfortunately, due to joints wearing out and a few major things, getting under a car is a long painful process today. You got to know I hate paying for something I used to do myself

Keep contacting them. They are betting you drop the subject. Just another way to increase profit, screw the little man.
