Work for it

Dear Editor:Today I went to the D&E sale in Aspen. After finding out that a particular size of what I wanted was in their Snowmass Village store, the clerk called the manager there to ask if I could get it transferred to Aspen. Nope I heard him say. I then asked if I could pay there in the Aspen store and go pick it up some other day or time in Snowmass, only to hear Nope again, Hes going to have to work for it! The female clerk seemed to like this phrase quite a bit and repeated it to me at least three times when I lightly pleaded for some other option to avoid a trek to Snowmass Village just to buy a pair of snowboard pants. Youre going to have to work for it! she said one more time, with glee in her voice and a dismissive attitude of whos next?Well, work for it I did! I went home and purchased it online for $35 cheaper and in only 10 minutes! (I did stop by Polar Rev, only to find the item cheaper and with a bigger discount than D&E, but not my size, and the female clerk there was sweet and apologetic).I always strive to support local businesses but am over belligerent and rude service such as this. Listen up D&E YOU are going to have to work for it! Enjoy having 75 percent of your inventory on your hands in August!David SchneiderBasalt
