Sums up the post your about to see.Originally Posted by eyes of hazel
Integrity = minimum these days.
Many of you may think that I am simply "beating a dead horse" here but I view it differently. I feel that I at least owe it to contribute all ofthis to the people who spend their money at SHOP GENTEI and or future customers. What I'm doing here is ultimately for the greater good. This has movedfar past the damn "Yeezy's."
I got my pair, for $215 + tax at DTLR.
It's not about getting them or not, it's about the audacity and arrogance some of these shops have when it comes to the customer/store relationship.
Raffle/Auction/Rape prices etc. etc. where expected, that is not what I'm writing/posting about. I am addressing the lack of organization, the attitude of"I don't give a $@*!" as you will see below and ultimately the LACK OF BALLS OR RESPECT to address what happened and attempt to at least look atit from the customers point of view. Gentei could have sold them for $1000 for all I care, that is not the issue. Give it to the customers straight, tellthem HOW MUCH and HOW MANY.
Lets move on what I woke up to this Morning...
Had a message when I woke up directing me to Olivier's (Gentei Owner) Blog. Check it out here: http://21runnin.blogspot.com/
Those kids were told by you (OLIVER) that they had their pairs on "lock."
When I got there you told me "These two guys have the last two pairs accounted for." Now this???
Man up, and tell it how it is.
I called dude up that was 10th in line and told him to look at the blog he was
Then got a text message telling me to look at "deermatt" recent posts on ISS...
BTW "deermatt" is dude all the way on the left of the picture. Oliver is the one who looks like his girlfriend is getting fondled behind the camera,therefore pouting. To make it easy to follow along just look at the dates of the posts.
ORLY?????? No holds or anything???? And on top of that I'm luck to get them at Gentei for ONLY $250???? SAY WORD????
"So how many is Gentei getting???"
So about this no holds for employees thing you said...
Who's mad??? You got them early good for you. You deserve it, after all you work there. Nothing special. Arrogance doesn't increase your Exp. son. Oh wait you have more...
Dude had 3 pairs of the first ones LOL. I'm not mad at that, its all good. Your cool with the peeps there, hell you work there. But why not tellcustomers straight up how many you have at the shop "For sale"? You clearly know, you bought 3.
*3 pairs out of 18 to an employee just so he can flip on the bay.
Dang 2 months rent? Really??? Bmore rent must be hella cheap. Reason I say cheap is because...
This mean you only made about $500 profit off of flipping these two. Wait maybe you sold your third pair for RAPE??? Is that the rest of the 2 monthrent...
Ohhh, I guess. Might have to move to Bmore. My rent is $1150 a month in College Park.
Lets move on to the Second release... *Look at dates*
One pair, that's cool again. Like I said your an employee, good for you. Oh wait you have what...
So you have 2??? Did you sell your third to an R&B singer that looks like a Pygmy????
This next post made me LOL
Son you work there. Who's in a high place??? G*T*F*O*H with that BS arrogance and attitude.
Its none of my business who you or Oliver sell them to. But I do feel like you owe it to the customer to honestly let them know how many are available sincethe jump. How are you going to tell them 11 pairs, then 12, then a few hours before release 9???? Now that is BS! Be Honest.
Like I said I could care less about how much you sold them for, who you sold them to, or even if you decided not to sell them to the general public. AllI'm criticizing is the lack of ORGANIZATION, RESPECT, ETHICS, and TESTICLES you guys are exhibiting. I'm addressing you directly because I knowyou're reading this, I know you lurk.
Lets just see if you can man up this time and respond. But like we all know, you probably wont.
Like I said before I'm doing it for the greater good. I have a pair, I could of just kept it moving, but attitudes like the one this dude Matt and Oliverare exhibiting are not OK in my book. The only thing I regret is recommending the store at one point in time and dropping money to feed these dudes. I didthis for the sneaker community and for the people that spend money at establishments like this. Take the info or leave it its up to you. I did it because Iwould of greatly appreciated it if someone else did these kinds of things for me. If you keep doing business there then that's cool more power to you. Ifyou ever get treated like trash at this spot or feel disrespected, all I can say is "I told you so, you should of known better."Originally Posted by eyes of hazel
Hard to believe any rebuttal from them after reading your post. You have no reason to lie. I personally know the allocation on these in the DC/MD/VA area. All stores.
Integrity = minimum these days.
But hey you live and you learn right. Never again my friend, never again.
That is all my NT Brothers.
"Good night, and good luck."
Hey Oliver, maybe you should replace your mission statement and customer service policies with this...
