We're dying here. Have a laugh at this...
Yesterday I was out to see a new client in Lilydale and I came across this store..
so I had to pop in and check it out.
I've been looking for a cover for my Performer for ages. Hard to find here, and Amazon won't ship them here.
So I go in and have a look. This bloke comes out of the office. Country fella. Goatey, Akubra, Flanny shirt etc. My kinda guy usually. But not this time. He asks if he can help.
I ask him if he has any Performer Covers.
He says... "Nup.. have to order 'em in."
Oh really? Says meeself. How many would you sell a year???
He says: " Maybe one or two"..
OK, I'm starting to get the picture here of the "farked over Weber Dealer" in Australia.
Anyway, I say... Look mate, I'll have a look around and see if there is anything I need..
So, I look around. The prices are farkin incredible.... One Webber Gasser is sitting there... 6 GRAND!!!! Jesus
I see the small 18.5 WSM and ask him how many he sells a year....
"Awww only one or two"
I tell him I got a big one... 22.5 and I use it all the time... farkin awesome! And he squints his eyes and farkin starts lookin sideways at me
I look around a little more. I see some Weber Hickory chips. I look at the back of the plastic bag and see all the other varieties of wood on the label.
"Hey Mate, I see here there is Cherry available.. have you got any of that???"
" Nup... Weber don't let us have any. We only get Hickory"
I say, "JESUS FARKIN CHRIST... That's farkin stupid.. Mate, I'd buy the Cherry in a heartbeat, but I got all the Hickory I need."
He's just lookin at me sideways again... the poor cnut has no freakin idea..
Oh, and he's trying to sell the new Performer for close to 900 Bucks!!
Well, I farkin shot through without buying anything and left the poor bastard probably cursing at me thinking I'm just a smart arse wanker... Which I AM when we start talking about BBQ.
But, farkin hell... can we get Weber to get serious in this country????
What do we have to do?????
