Rant and rave!!!!
« on: December 01, 2014, 04:52:37 PM »
I signed a contract with irving oil to put propane tanks in for my new garage, also for heating oil for my house. Did this like last monday with them promising to hook propane up this week! Got a call from the salesman that signed me up today.... His big boss said they don't service my area!!!!  I went on line and they service this area and all the towns around me! I called the big boss myself and he didn't have a good answer after he went to the website!! Told him my irving fuel cards would be coming back in the mail to them! I buy 1000-1500 dollars a week for my one truck! Now the ball is in his court! >:(

my wife used to buy 3 trailer loads a week of diesel fuel from then. then they decided they didnt want to deliver fuel anymore. so now someone else hauls it from irvings tank farm in searsport. irving can be a bit odd at times

:D  Most ppl think I say 'Clinton' when I tell them where I live and I correct them.  To which they respond "Clifton?  Where's that?"  ;) :D

The town of Wilson is 250 miles west of our little town of Wilsons, I learned that one day when a delivery truck driver called me up mad as a wet hornet that he could not find our driveway.  I stood at the end of my driveway and tried to walk him into it, was asking what he was looking at, when he mentioned he was going over the mountain again I was dumbfounded.  Took a few more minutes and he realized the problem, always look at the zip code!!!
