Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Receives Apology From Men’s Wearhouse After Posting Facebook Rant
Shortly before the new year, Megadeth's Dave Mustaine became the victim of a terrible injustice perpetuated by corporate America. The thrash frontman simply wished to bestow his beloved tour manager Jim Carroccio with a Men's Wearhouse gift certificate via mail, but alas, the gift certificate failed to be transported in time.
No, we haven't tapped Mustaine's phone or hacked into the Men's Wearhouse supercomputer … Dave Mustaine actually shared this news to over 5 million Megadeth fans on the band's Facebook page. After poking fun at Men's Wearhouse CEO and spokesman George Zimmer, calling him an "old geezer with the voice that sound like he has chain-smoked since he was a fetus," Mustaine wrote a lengthy rant detailing how Men's Wearhouse failed to live up to their two-day delivery guarantee.
Strangely enough, Men's Wearhouse has actually issued a statement in reaction to Mustaine's Facebook post, offering an apology to the musician:
Dave, thanks for reaching out to us on Facebook. We apologize for the delay in receiving your gift card and agree that the delay is unacceptable. Customer satisfaction is our highest priority and we stand by our guarantee to deliver world-class customer service. So, we'd like to speak with you about a solution but are having some trouble reaching you since we last connected on 12/28. Please send your contact info to MWListens@tmw.com and our team will help you right away.
John Cleese of 'Monty Python' once said while attempting to return a dead parrot, "If you want to get anything done in this country, you've got to complain 'til you're blue in the mouth." Apparently, truer words have never been spoken. And by the way, do not, we repeat, do not, send any silly emails to Men's Wearhouse while pretending to be Dave Mustaine.
