Am I way off base here or what?

I don't want to sound ungrateful, even though I'm sure it does.

Does this sound cheap to you?

A buddy & I sold our local mtn over a 100 seasons passes, they wouldn't tell us exactly how many. I'm going to find out though.
They did say the amount of $$$ we made them & it was $75 thousand & change.
We sold more than any other group.

Just found out that I get the Silver pass, don't get me wrong I'm so fuckin' stoked for this season. I got 2 new decks a pass & they're getting an Air-bag.

I just kinda thought I'd be getting a Gold pass. It's not like it costs them any extra $$ to hit me with a gold one.
On top of that we made them $75k, that is a lot of fuckin' dough.

Seems a little fuckin' cheap to me? What do ya think?

Doesn't really matter, it's shapin' up to be the best year ever.

Just left with a bitter taste in my mouth.

1. You are always off base. Its part of your repulsive charm.

2. Maybe we don't know the difference between a gold and silver pass at your local mountain.

3. I don't even know why u ask at this point, you know we like to see you in pain.

I knew as soon as I seen who made the reply it was just gonna be verbal diarrhea.

But seriously, doesn't that seem cheap? Even by your standards

1.Are you hittin' on me, ya big homo?

2.A gold pass is all the time, no exclusions & a silver is not.

3.I don't feel pain anymore, I decided a few years ago that I wasn't to keen on pain. So I gave it up, cold turkey.

That's a weak reply, where's the fun in that?

Or are you just all hot & bothered now?

depends on who bought the season passes, if you guys just sold season passes to people who buy season passes anyways and the resort knows this then maybe silver in their eyes was more than enough. If you sold to people who would not have normally bought one then maybe a gold pass is in order. 75k is like 750 a pass? How much is the silver worth vs the gold?

If you're selling $75k worth of passes, they should be paying you fucking commission. No way I'm doing that type of work if I'm not getting paid - and I don't mean a lousy free pass either.

x2

why were you selling 75,000 worth of season passes for them anyway?

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

This clears up nothing...what are exclusions. Here there are no levels. I have pass I go. Does this mean times or certain days you are not allowed on the hill. No park access. Access to sister resorts.

If you and your buddy sold the most passes regardless if they were previous pass holders, yes you should have gotten Gold.
It saved them time and HR resources that they were then allocated to other duties or didn't even have to pay employees at all saving even more money.

you got shafted again my friend....
