Alright, here is my rant. I am not going to name any names but what would you do?
Back in Sept, I took in some caribou meat in for sausages and hot dogs. Most of my order came back after 2-3 weeks and I only found out because I called to check. "Oh yeah, your stuff has been here for a week" they tell me "come and get it". WTH I thought, but I went in and picked it up all seemed fine so no real problem there, although it did irritate me a little that they did not call.
One of the items I ordered was Polish Caribou Dogs, These are only made in Nov so they went on back order and I was told to call the place where I dropped the meat off around the 5th and they would tell me when they would be ready.
So I call yesterday and explain that I'm just checking like they told me to. The guy answers "We already got all of the Polish back from the processor and it is all gone". "Well where is my stuff"? I ask.
"let me get back to you he says". Later that night I get a call saying he gave my whole order to another guy and he was sorry. He offered to send in some moose out of his freezer to make up for my order being given away. That just didn't sound good to me. I already have a hard time with not getting my own meat back so this just took that fear one step further. I declined and said I don't want your meat, I want a refund. He agreed and that is where it stands now.
I have been doing business with this processor for as long as I can remember. They make a good product and I know they are very picky about any incoming meat. I take such good care of my stuff that this is the only place I trust for that reason. Now they have a new drop off location in the valley and this is not a good start.
Anyway it just peeves me to lose the meat that I worked so hard for to someone else. I have plenty, so don't cry for me. If your the one who got a bunch of extra Polish Dogs in your order this season, I hope you enjoy, cause I sure worked hard for them.
