Free Burton snowboard with Ride boots and bindings at Function 4 Sports

 
Great offer. Function 4 Sports in Harrisonburg are giving away free snowboard set-ups until March. *
* This offer is not actually valid.


David Thorne has just posted a great story about snowboarding, shitty customer service and revenge on his 27b/6 site. Have a read here.


You may recognise a few of his previous tangles and the site is well worth a look around, here are two of my favourites:

Overdue

Dear Jane,

I do not have any money so am sending you this drawing I did of a spider instead. I value the drawing at $233.95 so trust that this settles the matter.
Regards, David.

Dear Simon,
Disregarding the fact that you have still not paid me for work I completed earlier this year despite several assertions that you would do so, I would be delighted to spend my free time creating logos and pie charts for you based on further vague promises of future possible payment. Please find attached pie chart as requested and let me know of any changes required.
Regards, David.

    And Function 4 Sports is currently getting a slating on Google...
    Function 4 Sports

    That will learn me for spending too much time snowboarding and ignoring my Internet monitoring responsibilities

  2. I could go for a free set up like that.

  3. UPDATE:

    And only 1 year later, after countless bad reviews, Function4Sports went out of business. (JULY 2012)
