    Default Bad Barone Service Experience

    In response to this thread, missed because I was off on vacation

    http://forum.saxontheweb.net/showthr...one-Experience

    I feel obliged to relate my experience.

    I am bitterly disappointed with my Barone service experience. My MP took 7 days to arrive. When I order from Tower Hobbies in Illinois, the parcel arrives in six days, so what the **** is going on at the Barone HQ??? Somebody tell me why a parcel from NY to Melbourne Australia should take 7 days, please and it was sent International Priority. It couldn't possibly be the postal service, could it? Maybe the fact that a letter from the other side of my own country takes a week to arrive could be to blame? Hell no! Phil wasted a day popping it in the mail and for that he should be condemned. That is just plain bad service.

    Well I dared to do it Pete, even if it is less than serious.

    Grimmell73 I liked your post on the above thread.

    Gee, a week's time to receive a mouthpiece doesn't seem very long at all. Remember, Phil Barone hand-finishes every mouthpiece. That takes some time too.

    Are you kidding? We have terrible problems with our postal service. If you're really in a hurry, there are faster options than Priority Mail, such as Express Mail and FedEx.

    Reading the thread reference by the OP, I think the post has a heavy dose of sarcasm (often doesn't come across well in an online forum).

    Eegads! Thank you sir! It's about time SOMEONE had the CAJONES to EXPOSE what has been going on under the radar for far, far, too long! It's about time some exposes BARONE for what he truly is! Man, we owe you an unfathomable depth of gratitude for your courageousness. From here on out, let it be broadcast both far and near, around the globe, and from pole to pole -

    CAVEAT EMPTOR!!

    (Sides, that, Phil looks funny and his feet smell!)

    Default Admin Note

    According to our Forum Charter and Amendments, starting a thread to continue one that was locked or removed is highly discouraged.

    Incidentally, I could get shafted and accused of being unfair/taking sides for allowing a negative comment to stand in this sub-forum if I let this thread open.
