Spleen Ventage Ahead!!!!! You have been warned!  
Friends, Romans, Fl*sters, please feel free to ignore this drive by wibble, it comes about due to increasing frustration with Rogue Events.  Now as you may know I'm having trouble getting my ticket for A12 out of the buggers, and then on the 1st of March they promised me my ticket within 48 hours.  Now as I received this on Jensen's birthday, I took this as a sign from the Geek Gods all was well.

Sadly this was not the case, it is now the bloody 12th and still no sodding ticket!  I even sent a polite where is it last Thursday, I got the customary automated e-mail and since then nada, nothing, zilch.

what makes matters worse is that over the weekend Rogue decided to release tickets at 25% off, so more than likely I'm even furth down the bloody pile. So when (if) I finally get the ticket it's going to be some bloody stupid number. So I might as well forget trying to buy photo ops, as in line with Rogue rules if I'm not there to collect by the end of Sunday i can forget getting my picture. i know this because I never got my Ty and Rick picture from A10.

So people I am now officially beyond pissed, do I send an e-mail every day unti Wayne caves and answers me.  Or do I take the usual English approach and not rock the boat? Seriousl I'm livid.

 Takes a deep breath, I feel a little better now and I'd like to share a little good news with you all.  In light of my luck with buying things recently, I purchased something from Forbidden Planet in December and last Thursday look what finally arrived!


P1010296

Yes Sam and Dean have finally got here they’ve only been on the road since December but at long last they are here. Ok so Castiel is still trapped behind the viel somewhere, but I have faith he will soon be joining the rest of team free will. 

So I have a question for you my dear fl*st, do I set them free of their boxes to have adventures round the house? (There could be a series of crack fics in this) Or be a true geek and leave them trapped in their tiny prisons. But I do expect Dean, to hack his way out of his box within a couple of days.

If I liberate them, then where do I keep them? If they stay in my bedroom I’ll never see them *sniff*. Alternatively I could have them living on my desk at work, just to terrify the non believers of course. Also I’ll need to escort them to safety at the end of the day, to keep them out of the clutches of our cleaner. Ahh decisions, decisions.

I can't believe you still haven't got your ticket - what the hell is happening? I'd definitely go with the email deluge here, cast of your Britishness! And that's a bugger about the photo - you're entitled to that; you paid for it - can you find the pdf on their website?

And, not that I hold myself up as any sort of guiding example to you, but when my little Sam and Dean arrived, I ripped their boxes apart a'la 'jack russell on speed' to get my hands on their little plastic particles!

Oh I'm still ticketless and very pissed, I do feel it is time to abbandon my DNA encoded politeness, and get a little shirty.

I must be honest it is very tempting to shred the boxes, but I will be good. I'll carefully unwrap them, and then possibly the boys will be introduced to my POD at work. If that happens there will be pictures *G*

I'm just warming up the vocal chords now! Enough is enough, it's time for me to get bolshy with Wayne. He's had more than enough time to get the ticket to me.

I'd bloody email them every single day until you get your ticket. Seriously forget being polite and rock the boat, rock it hard.
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on March 12th, 2014 05:23 pm (UTC)
It might be time to start being a pain in his ass. I think I've been more than patient.
Somersomer on March 12th, 2014 06:31 pm (UTC)
Now it's time to get out the big guns. Yes, every single day. I mean, they know you own a ticket. Either they're lazy or think they can get away with it. Buuhhh for Roque Events!!!

Awwwww, oh my god. Little Sam and Dean. Where did you get them? More importantly where can I get them??? I would take them out of there package but I wouldn't know where to put them either. They need a special place :)
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on March 14th, 2014 11:39 pm (UTC)
Hey there,

well as you know what the current situation is, but I'm here in my other capacity. As the proud owner of a mini Sam and Dean, where to get them from it's a site called forbidden planet and this is the address

http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1366_7861_8075&sort=20a&page=12

The reason they took so long to arrive, was apparently this company here in the UK were taking orders from America!

So at long last the boys are with me, and more than likely will be spending their days in the office with me.

I would be haunting them every day with emails and whatever else. Isn't there a phone number you can speak to a real human on? When I tried to get tix online for Adam and Queen in 2012 I ended up ringing the theatre in London at 1 in the morning and speaking to a very helpful lady. I had been trying online for an hour and a half and got tix straight away over the phone. You're a fan and you deserve immediate attention.
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on March 14th, 2014 11:43 pm (UTC)
Hey there, I have emailed them and if you look at my next post you'll see what happened. Sadly there is no phone number for me to call, all I can do is email them.

I do believe they're doing a very poor business with you here. You have every single right to be angry because they took money from you and sent no ticket. It's a CRIME!! I really really hope you'll receive your ticket soon.
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on March 14th, 2014 11:45 pm (UTC)
It's crappy and I'm more than heartily fed up now. Lord knows when I'll get my ticket.
milly_galmilly_gal on March 14th, 2014 12:28 am (UTC)
I'd be getting majorly f*cking angry right about now, if I was you! You're being way to calm about it, they owe you a ticket hun, and you're within your rights to bitch and whine until they see fit to give you one and not one that's acres down the freaking numbers. Gits!
Saltandburnboyssaltandburnboys on March 14th, 2014 01:29 am (UTC)
So you've paid for them, right? They have your money? Do you have an email receipt?

What I'd do is threaten them with trading standards...I bet it won't be the first time you've been reported. Set out the email really professionally - screencaps of your receipts/your bank statement where the money went out of (with blacked out info obviously) - and be really polite as you outline why you expect your ticket by Monday at the latest. That'll get your ticket pretty sharpish, I bet.

Those dolls are adorable, at least...
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on March 14th, 2014 11:48 pm (UTC)
I paid for the ticket in cash at A10, and Wayne last receipt numbers 68-75, guess what number my receipt was? Yup it was 69

I sent Wayne a scan of the receipt and that's when he said I would get the ticket in the next 48 hours, and so far nada.

Yes the boys are rather cute aren't they?
Saltandburnboyssaltandburnboys on March 15th, 2014 12:11 am (UTC)
Well, honestly, I think you need to give him a time limit yourself. Say you expect it by 1st April or you'll be naming and shaming him all over the net. You don't have to actually do it, but e threat should be enough.

Plus, depending on what was written on your original receipt, you may actually be able to file a civil lawsuit against him. If he, as a business, promised to provide you with something by a certain date and he hasn't, then that's a breach of contract. Again the threat of a civil lawsuit might be enough to scare him into sending you your ticket.

I really doesn't matter that he's got personal problems - he has my sympathies of course for whatever it is- because he runs a business. He's taken your money and he has to give you what you paid for. Imagine if a customer said they couldn't pay because of personal reasons...it's exactly the same thing - a breach of agreement. I don't buy it personally, because this guy is notorious for fucking people over - I bought an e ticket a few years ago and never got it. I chickened out of the con anyway so I didn't bother chasing it up, but they still didn't send it to me, even though they took my hundred pounds. I think he's a con artist, tbh. I saw there was a new company running a UK con this year, and I think I might go to that one instead...
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on March 15th, 2014 12:20 am (UTC)
I am really starting to regret buying my ticket early. I had the cash left over from my time at A10, and I thought why not? But right now I'm kicking myself all round the house.

What pisses me off royally is as i said last weekend it was splashed all over the website that there was 25% off all tickets, what about those people? Are they sitting wondering if they are going to get their tickets?

It's got to the point, that if I don't get my ticket before the con. I've every intention of printing off my emails from Wayne, turning up at the hotel and demanding a ticket right there and then.

By the way who is running the con and where is it? maybe it's time to move venues.
Saltandburnboyssaltandburnboys on March 15th, 2014 12:28 am (UTC)
Well, that's exactly what I'd do if you don't get a ticket beforehand. But what worries me is - how difficult is it for them to send out a ticket? It makes me think it's a scam or they've sold too many...not good at all.

You can't blame yourself for that...you just don't expect shit like this to happen these days or to happen with something connected with such a popular TV show...

I read about it here - http://supernaturalwiki.com/index.php?title=Salt_n_Burn. It's also called salt n burn so, really, I think I have to go, lol...
