Tailgate Take: Quality Assurance

When you’re constantly traveling for a show like Tailgate Fan and dealing with so many companies along the way, it’s important to make sure that you are treated right. If you’re not, don’t be afraid to blow the whistle!

Alright, it’s not as good as that guy’s game face… But I picked up the phone, called customer service and the first thing I heard was… This call may be recorded for quality assurance. Well, my friend, two can play at that game!

Yeah, buddy… You tell ’em! In he end, we got upgraded to a nicer hotel, and they were grateful for the feedback, so that other customers could be better informed. Hey, you may think I’m a conniving little devil, but my intentions were as pure as a saint!
