I finally got a response... After chasing again.

Apparently they have now contacted the warehouse (again) to send out my final three. They're not even advertised on the site anymore so I suspect they've sold out which is why they're not being sent

It's a bad business model if you can't even get most orders that head your way right.

If they were a smaller business and not connected to LN then damn they could be struggling right now.

They would be struggling indeed.

This is bullshit. It's our money and we have to work hard for it so it would be nice for them to start appreciating it.

So many emails have gone back and forth about these bloody tea towels! I ordered four in October. In January I get one... They say they sent four. They say they'll send another three... Two weeks later still nothing. They ignore my first email, a couple of days later I chase and they say oh sorry we'll speak to the warehouse... Three more are on their way apparently but if the website says they're out of stock how are they sending me more?
Just say sorry we have massively cocked up do you want a refund or something else. I want something, don't just keep my money and keep fobbing me off! I'd rather have the teatowels that have Foo Fighters 2018 on than nothing!

I wont be ordering from them again which is a shame as I've spent an awful lot of money there previously over the years.

Don't worry the are out of stock - they stop advertising before stock is zero and always hold spares for a while after all orders are shipped to cover losses breakages and fuckups on the orig orders. My ornaments are no longer on sale but my replacement ones went straight out.

What's mad here is the total disconnect between the order you place and the fulfillment of it. Someone seems to send the warehouse what to ship - it isn't directly taken from the order. This is where things are so often getting screwed up. Warehouse seems to send the right items they are told to. But either way it's bullshit.

Keep at them - they should deff be able to fix & complete any tea towel order issues raised as of now anyway.

Teatowelgate Final Update...

Just now I walked past my post tray at work.

I saw what looked like grey plastic...

Could it be true?

Could it be my missing teatowels?

On closer inspection there was not one, but two grey parcels.

How strange I thought.

One seemed bigger than the other.

Parcel one, contained a single teatowel.

Parcel two, contained three tea towels!

I don't know if they took pity on me and chucked another one in the post, or more likely it was a mistake and they accidentally sent a single one (on top of the initial single on I received when they thought they'd dispatched four....)

Who knows.

Thanks for listening to me whinge! I can now hand out belated foo based christmas presents!!! WOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh But I was

Q: Explain a recent challenging situation and how you dealt with it?

A: OK - The Foo store just wouldn't send my four tea towels even after acknowledging and promising they would fix the problem. So I emailed them 12 times every day for 2 weeks, rang, sent letters, posted on every social media platform and took out ads in the relevant newspapers. Eventually almost every employee of Live Nation must have given up and sent me a tea towel, as 1362 of them arrived over the following month.

From the Foo Fighters Hotel: Seven cans of Foo Brew, three coasters, one of the boxes the beers come in, a t-shirt, and stubby. I was tempted to get the FFH robe they'd had hanging up but for $70, after the tour had already bled me dry, I couldn't swing it.

Also, this might stir up some shit but the hotel had a sizeable stack of teatowels.
