Kiss can Kiss my ....

Thursday ended up being a REAL BAD DAY for me....

Hubby was off, so we decided to go shopping after we picked up my daughter from school. It was around dinner time when we went so we decided to stop off at IHOP to get a bite to eat. Thing was, I was attentively listening to the local radio station Kiss 92.5 because I had got a text message a few hours before, letting me know that at 5pm they were going to be giving away tickets to WWE RAW that's coming to town in May! Hell if I was going to miss that chance! They were giving away tickets before they were available to purchase to the general public.

Lucky for me, Kiss 92.5 is available on Iheartradio on my Blackberry, so as we're in IHOP I was sitting there with one earbud in my ear listning for my chance to call in, hubby's phone in my other hand, and trying to call and eat at the same time....

A few times I got rings and then nothing... They ended up giving the first pair away to some chick, this is what the DJ wanted, someone upbeat, someone who could say they were a huge wrestling fan, um HELLO!! A Wrestling Addicted Mommy!! There's no one in Toledo who's a bigger fan than ME! (ok hubby says that's not true because he's a bigger fan than me but I disagree! Lol)

They announce that they're going to give another ticket away and you have to prove that your a huge fan, so I continue to call and call and call. We get into the car and it rings... BOOMER the DJ picks up and I ask if they're still giving them away, he says yes! I SPEW OFF at 859034850 MPH how much of a wrestling fan I am, why I deserve the tickets, mention my blog, my twitter name, the websites I've ran etc I wasn't telling him abut any diet pill reviews or anything, I was mentioning wrestling things and proving why I'm a huge fan, even the amount of years both hubby and myself have been fans... I get the tickets right???

WRONG!!!

Jackass (excuse my language) Boomer says he doesn't believe that I”m in Toledo! Um HELLO?!? Yes I called the 877 number because whenever I call the local number it tells me the number has been disconnected or changed... No big deal...Not ONCE did anyone say you have to be a Toledo resident to win anyways! So I tell him yes I am, I tell him where I live, he says no I don't believe you, I said dude I'm at the IHOP and told him what street right now, and he said no sorry I don't think you're in Toledo and he HUNG UP ON ME!

This had me FUMING MAD for the rest of the day!!! I'm still so mad that I”m not even listening to that station anymore! But screw you Kiss 92.5, I got myself some better seats than you were probably giving away anyways!!

Congrats on the better seats. But I would have to be calling the general manager about that one.
I would not appreciate being called a liar on the radio.
Call and tell them what happened and maybe they will offer you some comp tickets to something else.
I call my satellite TV every time an offer comes out for new subscribers and tell them I want it too since I have been with them for 10 years. Works every time.
Right now I am getting the 40 buck package for 29 a month and 3 free months of HBO, Showtime and some othe premium thing and 1 year of cinemax for a penny.
So call and just tell them what happened and that you waited so long and had your child with you and you were so excited to finally get through and that he just flat out said you were lying....
then say, I have been a listener for X years and this makes me so upset that my favorite radio station would make me want to stop listening...
Thay hate to hear that.
Good luck.

I would show up at the radio station and ask for the general manager. Show your drivers license or something that shows yes you are local and tell him you weren't happy being called a liar and how you should have won. They at least own you tickets plus meet and greet.

Wow!! If I lived there, I'd get behind your boycott 100%!! I really hope they rectify the situation for you. I think Boomer(or whatever his nobody name is) owes you an on-air apology as well.

That's total CRAP!!! You should call the radio station and let them know what happened. Hopefully they would do something to make it up to you.

Dianne said...

That's pretty crappy G - I agree he owes you an on-air apology!

Kristine said...

Holy cow that is wrong on so many levels! I'd be fuming mad too. What an asshole. Karma will come around and get him. I can't believe a radio station would condone his behavior! Did he say this on air too?

Charlene said...

So not cool G. That was totally not the behavior a person would expect from such a 'visible' person. I really hope that he gives you an on air apology too and that karma comes around and bites his rear end.

I agree with the rest of the people here. What the DJ did was plain rude. He doesn't have to make you look like a liar on air. If he is not convince the best thing he could have done is ask you to drop by the station with your identification card.

You can send an email to their General Manager and inform him/her about what happened. The DJ should have at least showed some courtesy because you did make an effort.

Anyway, I am still glad you go yourself your ticket.a

That is SO NOT COOL! I would get in contact with the station manager and if tat does not work threaten to go to the news or something. That is so not fair. But at least you were still able to get tickets.

Fru said...

Definitely call or go in and ask for the manager that handles promotions and tell them what happened. That is so unfair!
