Jax Snacks Posted July 2, 2009 Share Posted July 2, 2009 Got a phone call at a new location from a VP of sales ("Fred") and upon an inspection, it was determined that my machine should be removed since there were already 2 machines AND the products offered were similar. My caller ID did have a phone number, but when I call it, all I ever got was a carrier signal. I was suspicious and went to the location. I talked with the GM and he told me there was no inspection and there was no "Fred" he knew of. He even called HR and confirmed that that person did not exist. I played the message for him on my cell phone and then he called the service number on the other machine and low and behold the voices matched! The GM told me the other guy was in about 10 days ago (similar time to my phone message). I know I am going to kick this guys butt since my machine vends a fair quantity and his vends only 6 Skittles and 2 MM Peanuts and 4 Mike and Ikes. The question is how should I retaliate? I am still a bit ticked off but no longer angry. Should I just be happy that my machine will most likely outsell his and he will eventually go bankrupt there? Should I call his service line and pretend to be the same phony VP so that he knows that he did not fool me? Should I put an "Out of Order" sign on his machine? I really would like to throw his crappy vendstar in a ditch but I guess that would be uncivilized! Some people are real low lifes! Bottom line - always verify your eviction messages. This vendor is very fortunate that this GM is very laid back and did not boot him. This is also the second time this has happend to me.
