Default Jeers Doug Thompson

If Doug Thompson offers a prize do not expect to receive it. I won last year but never heard from him. Can’t complain about not receiving a free item but it was a bad business move on his end. Doug gets a lot of positive support from members here and and sure he's a great person. However he's too busy to reply...too busy to say he's too busy to get a committed prize out. I do not need a free tool. Great tool Maker...maybe....good manager...not really. I have to laugh at this...I GOT NOTHING FOR NOTHING

I don't doubt your experience. That is not congruent with my experience of his support and business practices in the past. I only spoke to him a month ago. I hope he is ok (and would be nice if you get your prize).

This is one year old. Not a current issue. Just a little untimely.
I hope he is ok too. I’m not taking it personally. I’m strong. I can handle anything. I’m married.

And then there are folks who win prizes and don't say thanks to the donor.

Thatís poor etiquette and lack of appreciation. May the PenPrize Gods look down on them. May they never win again. I hate holding a door open for someone and do not like not getting a simple thanks. Thank you became replaced with No Problem. I guess it is a problem.

No, it's not "all good" by any stretch. If someone promises a prize, then refuses or ignores a request to fulfill that prize, they are a no good welsh.
They are not an honorable man by any means because they failed to keep their word.
I don't know about anyone else, but when I grew up, a man was as good as his word.

Well said Herb. Nothing complicated about commitment and following through. Good intentions are Hallmark.
And you sir committed to stop smoking. How ya doin.

My point is this is the second posting Frank made on this. I know he put this one in the Jeers and Cheer section but for someone that has no past renege posts that I know of, there has to be a reason for this oversight. What it is I hope we all find out soon. If he did not offer up any prizes this year maybe there is something deeper to the story. To throw people under the bus is not good until the whole story is revealed. That is all I am saying.
