FPV Merchandise @ SMS
Went to the SMS on Friday night. Rushed in to see the new GTHO/FPVT6/whatever but they were all hiding.
Got to sit in a GT, GTP and Pursuit side by side with out a salesman harassing me, sure am glad I bought a GT-P.
Went the the FPV merchandise stand next to the FPV display and asked the cute little blonde behind the counter "Have you got any GT-P stuff?".
Her reply "No we only have Ford here"...... WTF
I replied "No, Ford FPV GT-P, like that orange one over there" pointing at the Blood GT-P on display.
She then then turned to her boss who was beside her and asked "You know what a GT-P is?", he replied "Never heard of it"
I asked who they worked for suspecting they were both 'rent an airhead' temp staff. They replied that they were both employed by the merchandising company that has the rights to FPV product. I asked them a couple of FPVish questions like "What do you think of the Pursuit? and ....... Do you like the FORD Monaro?" They wouldn't know a GT from a Jumbo Jet,
So to FPV staff who read this ..........(Donna, are you there?)
Guys GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER....
Your merchandising people are hopeless. Please spend 10 minutes explaing the sales brochure to them.
It is getting really hard to remain a Ford enthusiest.
P.S. I really want to buy some GT-P stuff.
Here is wisdom.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the BEAST:
for it is the number of a F6 Typhoon; and its number is 0217.
