Thanks allot Rockys, all we wanted was a pizza!!!

What are the things that puzzle, enrage, delight and tickle you as you go about your life in Madison?

Thanks allot Rockys, all we wanted was a pizza!!!

Postby Gorcon » Mon Aug 08, 2011 7:39 am

So we spent all day raking and moving dirt, then got all our grass seed planted in the front and partial back yard as well, covered with hey and watered. ...........Then at the spur of the moment we said, lets order a Rockys pizza to celebrate are hard work all day.

Long story short, the pizza came just after dark, we paid and even tipped 5 dollars and had dinner. However when we woke and headed out front to admire our work we were greeted by 6 to 12 inch deep tire tracks all over our fresh seeded and hayed lawn!!!. The kid had tore up our front yard pretty good with his car, we even followed his footprints tru the seedlings and mud right up to the front door.!! Of course he mentioned nothing the night before, took our money and left.

Now the fun part. I called 5 times over the next 2 weeks and reached the assistant manger every time. The first contact was like OMG let me get the GM to call you and take care of this mishap. I received no call and called back and got the same tune from the same manager the next 3 calls, how sorry she was and that the GM would surly call you back. The 5th time I called there was a change!! When I called and said whom was calling she said (asst Manager) , with excitement in her voice ": he called you Sunday" (the GM) didn't you talk to him? I said no..? no I didn't...? . I said I could check my answering machine and all of a sudden she basically excuse herself then and hung up...?

After checking we concluded there were no messages left from Rockys and no sign of a missed call from them ether. I even explained to her in one of our phone calls that my company spends $1000s of dollars a year at there restaurants for employee functions and big jobs when we feed our employs.

My question...? I like Rockys pizza and have been eating it for many years but do have my pride. Does this deserve a boycott from me and my company and will it even make a difference in a company that obviously feels its big enough to to walk over the little guy, wreck his morning and make him feel really bad, cheated and ripped off and not worry about making it right with him?

I have heard nothing more, or ever actually from the GM at Rockys on the west beltline since my last call over a week and half ago.

Thanks allot Rockys, all we wanted was a pizza. We have still not had the time to fix what you wrecked. The grass has grown in by now except for the tire tracks from your driver and it looks terrible! :x

I'm unclear what you want Rocky's to do about this? Apologize? Reseed your lawn? Fire the driver? Give you a free pizza?

I really do sympathize, but imagine it from Rocky's end: You have no evidence that definitively ties the lawn damage to them, you waited until after the fact to call with a complaint, you never mentioned anything to the driver in question, and you want... what, again, exactly?

You are correct about that. Any other dumb questions school boy? My post is about Rocky's dogging me, not my spelling. Care to comment on it ?

On another note , why make that comment anyway? Do often correct people when its not your place to do so?

Do you stalk your ex girlfriends too? Maybe you don't have any or a life because you seem to find and stupidly comment on every post I make?

Since you like to make light of everything I say.... Do you think its OK what they did and how they deal with it? Just think of all the other people they have wronged if they can ignore my 5 calls without so much as returned call from a manager...?

Since you brought up a post from me from what , a year ago..? Have you noticed its not Dejope anymore its Ho Chung Gaming now. Madison now has a casino !! Who knew? Only our casino allows 18 year olds to gamble there becuase its a disused as a "bingo hall" So now young adults can get hooked and ripped off at a much earlier age in Madison then the rest of the country.

I'm still wondering how you would have liked them to deal with it.
What could they have done to satisfy you?

Huh?
Not sure it follows that because they are ignoring you they must assuredly be jerking around other customers. Your situation is kinda strange, after all. In all the years I was a delivery driver and all the years I've been getting pizza delivered since, I've never heard of your situation arising anywhere else. And likely, neither has Rocky's.

Ho Chung sounds like a delicious American Indian / Asian fusion restaurant. Maybe you should order the Sweet and Sour Chicken over Fry Bread the next time you are hungry. Their delivery drivers would probably be nicer to your lawn.

I worked for Rocky's for like 3 years way back in the day. We did some crazy shit (too many examples to mention), but I never heard of a driver tearing up someone's grass like you described. Any manager I worked for would've shitcanned a driver pronto if they pulled a stunt like that.

The GM should definitely call you back, at least to discuss the situation. If you can't get ahold of that person, call Rocky's corporate office and ask for the regional manager.

You're doing better than this guy. All he wanted was a Pepsi.

I would hope so, but I would also hope they would actually need some evidence before doing so. Again, Gorcon neither witnessed the destruction nor called to complain until the next day. If Gorcon is really claiming they can't tell when a car drives up onto their lawn, then who's to say when it happened? If I was the manager and the driver wasn't already someone I knew was a jerk, I'd probably give them the benefit of the doubt after some simple questioning.

I agree, but I'm still unclear what action Gorcon wants Rocky's to take.

In the absence of a witness, I really wonder if the damage was done by the Rocky's delivery person.

What's the motive? Is it impossible for it to have been vandalism perpetrated by someone else?
