You should probably take a step back, count to ten, make a new post and try to salvage what you can from this situation. I just looked and there have been 2000 views of this particular thread. That's a lot of people watching!!
Come-on. Give the guy a break! Put yourself in his shoes for a minute. He took quite beating in a lot of posts from people who didn't know the facts and all of it occurred before he even had a chance to speak directly with his customer. I can certainly see why he would have preferred it hadn't been aired in public, although I think it was good that it was.

He fixed the issue with his customer - why do you feel the need to continue to beat on him after he did the right thing? Great incentive, punishing someone who did the right thing. Jeez!

Because I think he did the "necessary" thing which in this case also happens to be the right thing. His statement leads me to believe that he was unhappy doing so. I wouldn't want my laundry aired in public either if it was gonna cost me money but I would still try to make the best of a bad situation rather than making catty comments after the fact.

You got your opinion and I have mine.

So you have special insight into people's motives beyond their actions??? You're doing pretty good with catty comments now and you weren't even involved. seems pretty petty to me. But just my opinion and all.

Can you read? Did you read? Are you now in charge of defense for Galveston Honda?

I didn't like what he had to say. You don't like what I have to say. What's the difference? Does your opinion take precedence over mine? Do you know Pike and Keith? I do. Have you bought motorcycles there? I have. That's my involvement. What's yours, other than minding my business?

eh... You do no yer puttin yer bidness on a public forum rite?

I see someone who appeared to have done the right thing by his customer and I see someone getting in his face and relentless about slamming them because they made a post that showed some justifiable frustration on their part. Again, you're coming off really petty to me with your public ranting at the guy.

Appeared is the key word here. He appears to have done the right thing.

Unlike you who posted all throughout this thread, I waited until it was over until I provided any input. I saw how it ended and I wasn't satisfied with his response.

Do you really think I care how I come off to you? I don't know you and I'm not likely to. What I do know is the last time anyone spanked me for my behavior, my Daddy handled it, and that was over 40 years ago. I'm pretty sure some little boy from the internet isn't going to manage to put me in my place. Nice try though.

Resorting to name calling is a sure sign you lost the debate. Stopped your ranting at the dealer didn't I? Better luck next time.

Name calling is for girls. I called you a little boy. Was I wrong? You stopped nothing. I said what I had to say to Keith and for the last hour have been playing with you. You kids are too easy.

I think I'm gonna have to start pickin on Racer X. He's more my size and age and puts up a good fight.

You did? Post #25 in this thread. I enjoyed the short debate but didn't feel like getting involved or taking sides, just thought this was amusing
