Things are looking up in Pensacola, if the two guys I talked to this morning keep their word.
First, I finally got the right number for the higher up that had left the message last week. After I reminded him who I was and why I was mad, he said it was a "misunderstanding" that led to the local stores having the May toys. They're "working" to get the new ones into the local restaurants. And, he's going to send me a complete set in the mail, for free, as soon as his people get back from Thanskgiving vacation. Hopefully that will include Vader.
Then, I had an e-mail from a different district manager than the one who stopped answering my e-mails. Apparently, the city has more than one DM. He said the new toys should begin arriving Friday, and supposedly he's going to have one of his stores set aside a set for me (again, he didn't say anything about Vader). I assume I'll have to pay for those, but that's fine, as long as I get one set to open and one set to keep packaged. I'll probably try to pick up a few extras during the end run, since I have some overseas friends I trade with.
I've got at least one each of all the watches, with a couple of extras (gotta keep one of the Hans with me at all times <G>).
Gift cards - we went in over the weekend and the stupid woman didn't know how to ring them up. Now, I told her how to ring them up, because I was there for the training session the first time I bought one, but she didn't listen to me). So, the next day, we went in to the same location, and the cashier said they could just give them away without ringing them up. So, I completed my set, and got an extra set.
Hopefully, these two guys from this morning will keep their promises, and the toys are taken care of and I'll be happy.
I'm still not sure I'll eat at Burger King again after the promotion. It took an awful lot of effort to get this stuff.
