Damn! If my mailman reads this, he's liable to report me to the GOVERNMENT and it will go on my permanent record! I forgot this is an open forum. But I did say Communist plot so that's in my favor right? But I also mentioned terrorists. I'm doomed.

I AM a small town merchant and Wal-Mart IS a pain in our collective arse...my solace is that I can provide technical service, theoretical advice and custom work that those two-by-twice dime store hoods could never hope to accomplish.

While they are buisily scratching up watch backs and gouging bracelets and breaking spring bars (pins that hold a watch bracelet on) I have the power cell changed, the movement cleaned and electronically timed, the case cleaned and the gaskets and seals pressure tested. In 1/2 the time. Always.

Always.

P. S. I can tell the customer the difference between elinvar and invar hairsprings, and how to carry a pocket watch to minimise positional variations in time, how to settle a mantle clock and ten ways to realise better performance from anything that tells time of day. Always.

Always.

P. P. S. I would Looooooooove to see Wal-Mart build ANYTHING they will gurantee for 20 years. God knows I have. Always.

Always.

Amos,
Even the bastillion of conservative capitalism, The Wall Street Journal, ran a front page article (month ago??) on how poorly Walmart treats it's employees. In fact they even hinted it might be in violation of the law... The low, low prices seemed to be tied to some low, low behavior.....

Yep, Susan, you're right. Those folks berating Wal-Mart don't take into account that the store hires thousands of employees who, without that job, would be in tough shape. The fact that MY son is one of them has NOTHING whatsover to do with my statement (well maybe just a little bit). :>)

WalMart is a Communist/Terrorist plot to destroy small businesses throughout the US and then go under themselves leaving us (deservedly) without a hardware store, bakery, toy store, whatever. I won't set foot in one and gladly pay a bit more to "Mom and Pop" for the privilege of dealing with someone who cares.
RANT OVER

Maybe they took it because you were physically here in the US, I dunno. I know a lot of companies won't ship overseas but it seems like a corporation as large as WalMart would have the means to do that.

If there's something particular you're looking for, maybe I can help. :-)

Walmart is economic evil incarnate.

In their never ending quest for world domination, they must have some UK outlets. If so, contact one of them and raise Hell; check for outlets on the continent; demand economic equality for EU members. Also check for stores in Canada, a Commonwealth country.

Do all you can to get your order processed and then never consider doing business with them again. And let everyone you know exactly how you've been treated.

I'm pissed off at WalMart, when we were on holiday in the US I spent hundreds of dollars in what I thought was a wonderful store. When my grandson was born, I used them to send flowers to my kids in Vermont. So here we are Christmas, and I order a couple of CDs and a Wisconsin cheese gift package, about $50 bucks. They cancelled my order, they only accept cards issued by US banks, assholes. Why did they take my plastic in September but not in December? I wrote them and complained all I got back was a form type letter, and it was obvious that they hadn't really read my complaint mail. Well GOD ROT them.

Rant rant.......Giok
