    Gobsmacked by tftestkits.

    Last season I ordered the TF-100 as recommended by everyone on the board. Just for kicks I wrote "Please draw a unicorn on the package" in the shipping instructions box during checkout. Couple of days later the package shows up with a unicorn hand drawn on it. How cool was that right? A good price for high quality always shipped quickly and if that's not enough someone took the time to draw the unicorn. Fast forward to this season and another order. This time I asked for a drawing of unicorn eating spaghetti riding a unicycle on a high wire in a thunderstorm just to be funny and maybe make them smile a little. The package showed up today and I still can't believe my eyes.



    Intex 15x48, Intex Saltwater Chlorine Generator, Intex 14" Sand Filter, TF-100 unicorn eating spaghetti while riding a unicycle on a high wire during a storm edition test kit,

    If I wasn't so frightened by them, I would dock the pay of everyone of those elves. I thought I saw some mail the other day from some art correspondence school but I had no idea they were practicing on my dime.

    Maaaaaaaaaaaan.....

    JUST today I ordered some reagent refills, and thought about doing something similar in the comments box, but decided I wasn't quite sure how it would be received.

    I guess now I know! *lol*

    That is awesome, Dave!

    Remember, the Shock Process should be followed until : 1. CC is less than 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT shows a loss of 1.0 ppm or less and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    The Elves Went on Strike....

    LMAO. I think Dave must have said something to the Elves. My daughter and I thought we'd have a little fun with the TFTestkits people when we ordered our reagents, since a previous poster had shared with us their experience. Here was our "simple" request:

    Draw a buffalo(with a Hello Kitty tattoo) dipping ice cream while riding a unicyle on the shipping label. Thank you! My daughter wants to frame it for her room and we've heard about your amazing artwork.

    Here is their response:

    Thank you for your order.
    I am so sorry that I cannot draw the picture for you. It makes me sad, but since the post came out on TFP we have been inundated with requests.

    I just would not be able to get out the orders if I drew all the pictures being requested!

    The customer service I really want to be remembered for is the prompt, accurate service!

    Meg

    PS The elves went on strike!

    Dave, you have some good people working for you! And thanks for the laugh, sometimes that is hard to accomplish with a 14 year old daughter.
