Men’s Wearhouse Apologizes To Dave Mustaine

He does

Dave Mustaine is a little off his rocker. Let’s be honest, people.

But that’s what makes Dave so amusing. See here and here for examples.

This week, Men’s Wearhouse apologized to the Megadeth frontman after failing to deliver a gift certificate to his band’s tour manager in time. In time for what, I have no idea.

Either way, Men’s Wearhouse should rename itself Bitch’s Wearhouse. Who apologizes to a raving mad man’s musings.

On December 28, Mustaine wrote in an online post that basically screams, “Fuck Men’s Wearhouse and never go there.

“A few days before Christmas, I purchased a gift certificate from the Men’s Warehouse [sic] in Salt Lake City, Utah as a gift for our awesome tour manager Jim Carroccio. You know the Men’s Warehouse [sic]… the old geezer with the voice that sound like he has chain-smoked since he was a fetus; the one that espouses, ‘I absolutely guarantee you’re gonna like the way you look,’ or some manure like that, right?”

We know the dude. And if you don’t, go here.

“Well, I was talking to Jim today and wondering why he didn’t say anything (I think we all wonder sometimes when our loved ones or friends get gifts if they actually like them) and it turns out that they decided to hold my order, otherwise called by them as ‘pending,’ and told no one. For almost 9 days now, I have been waiting for delivery of this gift certificate, and I wouldn’t say anything because it IS the holidays, but these salesmen promised that they would GUARANTEE a two-day delivery of the certificate to Jim (it seems they throw this word GUARANTEE around quite a lot).

“So, we called and asked what happened and they have no explanation whatsoever, they didn’t care, and when we asked if they were going to do anything to remedy this, they made no effort whatsoever for this mix-up… although they did promise me the same GUARANTEE that they gave me when I bought it; that is that they will send it ‘two-day delivery,’ but I already was promised this. Maybe they mean 12-day delivery.

“I really think that it sucks when people make false claims, that they don’t care to make good on a problem that is clearly their fault, and with all of the ‘ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE IT’ crap I just had to say something,” Dave rambled. “We are all living in very tight financial times right now, and like I said, you may not wear a suit for your job or for an event or occasion, but if you do, I would strongly recommend you wear someone else’s suits. Go to JoS A. Bank instead. I for one, will never set foot in a Men’s Warehouse [sic], even for shelter from a blizzard. I absolutely GUARANTEE it.”

Yesterday, the suit store called the snafu “unacceptable.”

“We apologize for the delay in receiving your gift card and agree that the delay is unacceptable,” says a rep for Men’s Wearhouse. “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.”

It seems to me, what with how much dough Dave earns, he could have just bought his tour manager a fucking suit. But then again, I am not Dave’s accountant, so I don’t know.
