I've never got to commision a build through PPS before. I had wanted to for some time, but it never panned together.
It is quite posibly the worst thing I have been through in this sport!
You take weeks...months trying to figure out what you really want and what you can afford.
Then you jump the gate and make the call placing the order.
And you wait.
Then you wait some more.
Just when you think youcan't take it any longer....you wait.
ARG! The waiting!!!! ARRRRRGGG!
Then you get the call that they shipped! And you get the wrong tracking number! NOOOOOOOoooo!
So now you wait blindly for most of the weekend til you can call back and get the right number.
The number is right...and your new toy is sitting in some room just outside Witchita as you try to scratch the imaginary eyes from the imaginary head of the imaginary delivery dude.
Then the delivery guy waits until you leave for ten minutes, and simply leaves you a delivery failure notice telling you to pick it up after 5pm....the damn place closes at 5!!
At 9am you are pacing a groove into the concrete outside the office. Some burnt out delivery driver who wants nothing more than to sleep but instead is stuck running the counter hunts and peck the 60,000,000 digit long number into his computer...then disapears for the longest 4 minutes of your life.
I didn't even leave the counter....opened it right there.
IF only I could do it again with a Huricane!
