If my memory serves me correctly,there was a small issue with Larry in a previous pass.Something about sticks being shipped to the GWN.Oh yea that was sticks being sent to me and he complained about the shipping charges to send them to me and I never did get them.Those puts were crap with what he took and you geeks know us Canadians are pretty laid back.
MAKE IT RIGHT LARRY.


You have a great memory my friend.
Here is how Larry rolls

Kent, you should write a Geeks article on how not to conduct a pass here.  This is a great case study in how messed up things can get.  

The thread from 15-16 was an entertaining read for sure.  If you notice, we had the two parties as participants in that pass that are/were involved in this one.   

Really a great learning experience.  Someone made a reference to passes of the past that were worse...how much worse does it get?

Honestly this is why other "less relaxed" forums have strict guidelines for who can run passes and even be in them.

Given that CG is already equipped with feedback and the badge system. A "pass eligible" and "pass runner" badge wouldn't hurt imo.

And how about a douchebag badge while we are at it!

Feedback needs to be left to warn other pass starters about this behavior as well. There is still time to explain himself and try and make right, but logging on and not answering to the situation does not bode well. It would be easy to fess up, say oops I f&*&#$d up, let me send a few sticks to the mod or further down the pass and I will make this good. Nobody would ever have a problem letting him in again. But to avoid the situation just looks like you are playing on the good will of the geeks, not cool.

Quick explanation to those who are so ready to condemn me...I meant to Put 5 and Take 4, but I kept 5 and the most expensive one in my Takes (the Padron) was kept by accident. I was rushing to get the box off since the last time I was blamed for the whole thing going awry when I had no idea the UPPS would want the keys to my car and my first born to ship cigars to Canada. The value of these sticks, if I hadn't messed up, would have been about equal. I have offered to send $$$ to the next guy to "buy" sticks out of his stash, or a B&M for that matter, to more than make up for the difference.
You won't have to worry about my being in another pass, I'm not I your league as far as knowledge or holdings. To those who expressed a willingness to give me the forum to explain, thank you.

I appreciate that you didn't just run and hide from the mistake.

Larry and I have pm'd this morning and Lammy also reached out to me. I do believe between the 2 of them the box will be back on track by Monday or Tuesday.

s**t happens and I'm sure we've all found ourselves in the middle of a !@#%$up. To me, fixing the problem is often a lot harder than just trying to hide the fact there was a problem.

So you didn't realize that you put $2 and $3 sticks in a pass (that you had priced in your humidor) that the minimum is set for $5? You accidently typed the padron into your humidor? Seems legit... Totally...

Glad to see that Larry is going to step up and resolve this.
