So what happened to the people responsible for this?

And my day was again full of them yesterday.
Purchased a shed from Menards last week and set up to have it delivered for the following Wednesday. Delivery options they gave me were 8am-Noon, Noon-6pm or after 6pm.
I said after 6pm is perfect since we both work and are not home until later. They call me yesterday around 10am and ask if they can drop it off now but someone needs to be there to sign for it. This lead to a big back and forth and the manager calling me back several times. I told them if you can't do deliveries that late then you should not have it as an option. They come back with well they are just estimate times. I said no Noon-6pm is an estimated option or 8 and noon. We set it up for after 6 because that is when we will be around. So you call in the morning, many many hours before it should be arriving because your drive wants to drop it now. They are now dropping it off today at some point this afternoon. This is what we agreed on yesterday. I also told since I won't be around to inspect it, they will be held responsible if anything happens to it.
Lucky though last night I was able to have someone be there for me when it gets dropped today.

Next FU. My rear tire is flat on the Street Glide. Under my warranty it gets fixed for free and I have up to $200 per tow. Fuck it have it towed to the dealer to get it fixed. I have the warranty for a reason so why not use it. I call HOG to set up the tow. They go we will call you back in about 15 minutes with the details and when the truck will be there to get the bike. 90 minutes later I called back to cancel the truck. I asked them what if I was in an emergency situation? I was told 15 minutes and it's now 90 minutes. I didn't get a call back or anything saying it's taking longer than normal or anything. I was pissed off. I said back in May I had to use you also and we waited 5-6 hours in the middle of nowhere "while you located a tow truck". We kept calling back then to see what was going on and all we did was get transferred from person to person with answers then either. I said and I pay for this yearly membership because it's there to help people. I go we are in Chicago and you can't find one tow truck within a timely fashion, come on....
I put a feeler out on FB last night. My buddy Jeff said he would come through Friday right after work with his trailer to help me out. Thanks to you guys on here who also were trying to give me a hand. It's nice to know close communities like TCG are willing to help out.

I got my Street Glide over to the dealership to get a flat fixed up (warranty work). It was supposed to be done this week. When they took the wheel off, they found a few other issues. The good news is it's all warranty work so I just pay the deductible and be done. Bad news is the other parts are not in stock and it takes 5 business days to come from HD. Looks like my plans on the bike this weekend are not happening.

Yeah I know and this weekend we were going to ride. At least next week I'll be out of the country for a few days so I wouldn't be able to ride it if it was back at home.

Go outside to see a nice new ding on the passenger side of my car. Just above what looks like someone scraping their bike along the bottom of the same door.

Man that sucks, nothing worse than a leech who shows no gratitude at your good will.

x2, hopefully he's not that far out of your normal commute. Can you expense the mileage? That'd be nice.
