First world problem
« on: April 25, 2020, 09:01:36 AM »
Some of us don't sit around collecting free money on unemployment. I finally get a day off and I need to call Weber for about five different Kettle or pits and they're freaking closed!

Iím not saying itís not frustrating but if one of your bigger problems is that Weberís not open when you call...youíre doing all right in my book. A lot of people wish they could be working.  BBQíing does take work and is not for the lazy people and I would guess most on this site are hard workers and hopefully any people not working involuntarily get back to work real soon.

Some of us wish we were working. Not sure if I will still have a job or not after all of this. Agreed, if this is your biggest complaint in life, you truly are doing ok. My unemployment only pays a fraction of my regular paycheck... while I completely support social distanceing, it sure as hell wasn't my choice to go on unemployment...

And why that many grills?  Do you need parts or something?

Those of us on unemployment didn't choose to be. If not getting grill parts is your major complaint, good for you. We don't care to hear your pissing and moaning. Grow the fuck up.

No need to pile on.  I'm sure he didn't mean it like that.  When I read it, I got the impression that he has been having to work a lot of hours and days in a row and is just a bit frazzled because he has been looking forward to fixing some of his acquisitions and bummed.  Because of the long hours, he is probably a bit envious of the time off that others have (well during the time period that those will have larger unemployment compensation anyway).  But, I'm sure he actually understands that few (if anyone) chooses to be unemployed. 

Please kindly give him a break.
regards,
Hal

No need to moderate.

@HoosierKettle Just trying to add a little sanity into the thread.  That, and perhaps prevent another member from throwing in the towel here because a bunch of people pile on & nobody really speaks up for the member.  We've all seen it happen before.

Hal

So key words " 1st world problem " .  Just a warranty issue on two Webers . Apparently I came off uppity!  It was pouring rain and was cooking bacon. I just felt like life was good even though the rain and not being able to get through . My Crate and Barrel performer lid roller thing melted a little. And my old spirt 300 I had a question about. .  I didn't on purpose mean to offend. It tough I know.
Iíve never had to contact Weber ever. What is it you need?
