First and foremost this IS NOT about Joey. He makes great quality saddles and has tried to help me any time I have talked to him about this. This is ALL about his mom and dad. VERY long story short, I returned a saddle for credit over a year ago (closer to 2, but whose counting). I have the credit receipt to prove it. So far, I have received only about 1/3 of the approx $1500 owed to me. I am constantly calling, and trying to be nice, understanding that times are tough for all of us. Last check I got was in July. I have called no less than 5 times since, and and really getting sick of it. It has gotten to the point that when someone I know is going to the shows I know they will be at (the big paint shows, and AQHA shows) I ask them to "give St%^$ my best, and ask for my $$" mostly so he knows that I am starting to spread the word, and others are aware. 2 Phone calls ago I finally told him that my DH has been diagnosed with MS and we really need the $$-still nothing. I just called again-and he tells me he will call me when he gets home in an hour. Yeah right. I think I should probably just write off the nearly $1K he owes me.....it is not worth the aggravation. Any thoughts? Y'all can feel free to let him know I am less than happy and am finally getting the word out there. I think I have been more than fair.
