Last night I took two (2) 10mg Ambien, chased them with a glass of Glenlivet, and an hour later I went to backcountry.com to chat with their staff.
Lately, these pills don't make me sleepy, just crazy. I start doing stupid things and next day I can't remember shit.
Given the amount of replies to this thread, I thought you guys would enjoy this, so I'm posting it. Starts getting funny at the "these fking snowboarders" line.
Welcome to Backcountry. You are now chatting with Dave W..
Richard Pryor: i have a dilemma. I will go ski for 10 days every year at places like Vail, Tahoe or Whistler.
Richard Pryor: Want to buy my equipment now
Dave W.: okay hello there
Dave W.: so what's the dilemma then ?
Richard Pryor: not sure if I should get the Arcteryx Fission Insulated or the Atom LT Hoodie + Alpha SV
Dave W.: gotcha, tough decision those are both great combos
Dave W.: I would go with the Fission personally as I find easier to just throw on the one layer and its equally waterproof
Richard Pryor: what would i wear the Fission with?
Richard Pryor: merino baselayer?
Dave W.: yes exactly, Icebreaker or Smartwool
Richard Pryor: and when i get to the lodge, i just unzip the jacket
Richard Pryor: cause otherwise it's too warm, right?
Richard Pryor: u still there dave?
Dave W.: yes just need to undo the jacket a little to cool down
Richard Pryor: what are some advantages of having the Atom LT hoodie + Alpha SV vs. the Fission?
Dave W.: you could then wear the hoodiee or the alpha SV on its own when conditions warrant, such as spring
Richard Pryor: I'll only ski once a year during december-february... for a week.
Dave W.: okay yah I think the Fission would be a more practical choice then
Richard Pryor: no mid layer with the fission?
Richard Pryor: just the 260 icebreaker and that's it?
Dave W.: yes, depending on your level of exertion, that is all you will need
Richard Pryor: Ok. I'm liking the fission more and more.. but these fking snowboarders want me to buy shell
Richard Pryor: and I'm like, I don't think its the best choice for me
Richard Pryor: u agree?
Richard Pryor: 7 days a year
Richard Pryor: i live in Puerto Rico (warm)
Dave W.: you could use the shell in the rain in Puerto Rico
Richard Pryor: hmm
Richard Pryor: good point
Richard Pryor: so the shell does not give heat at all?
Richard Pryor: cause it's 88 degrees here
Dave W.: no insulation in the shell, just a weather protector
Richard Pryor: so, what should I do? try them all on?
Dave W.: a lot of people will buy more than one size and then return the garments that don't fit well , we have a super liberal return policy
Richard Pryor: u pay 4 return shipping?
Dave W.: on an order of this magnitude for those expensive garments yes we could arrange that
Dave W.: ordinarily you do have to pay return shipping, for USA domestic use : if you would rather not obtain your own return postage, you may choose to use an email-issued UPS RETURN LABEL : the cost is $6.99 and it would be deducted from your return proceeds. the label comes via email : you print it off and affix to your package , then give to any UPS agent
Richard Pryor: whatever. I'll order everything and see what I'm keeping
Dave W.: okay to ensure you get free return shipping you'll want to pass me your order number when finished, and I will add a note indicating as such
Richard Pryor: thx man
Richard Pryor: u gonna be here 15 more mins?
Dave W.: yes I will stand by, no rush whatsoever
Richard Pryor: ok brb\
Richard Pryor: umm
Richard Pryor: hi
Dave W.: hello
Richard Pryor: debating between the orange jackets and black pants or the black jacket with orange pants.
Dave W.: I like the orange pants w/ black jacket look better personally
Richard Pryor: me 2
Richard Pryor: entp]\\
Richard Pryor: oops
Richard Pryor: entonces q procede?
Dave W.: I am sorry, I cannot understand your question
Richard Pryor: i mean... how should we proceed?
Dave W.: can I start by getting your email address , first and last name, billing address exactly as it appears on your credit card statement, and telephone number please
Richard Pryor: edited for obvious reasons
Dave W.: okay thanks and what did you want to buy ? may I please have the item number(s)? for example, Item ABC1234 (located near the price on the product screen)
Richard Pryor: u need to recommend me some based on needs
Richard Pryor: want me to elaborate on those?
Dave W.: I thought you decided what you wanted while I was holding
Dave W.: no that's okay we already discussed it
Richard Pryor: the alpha sv jacket for sure
Dave W.: okay which size and color
Richard Pryor: umm
Richard Pryor: u there dave?
Dave W.: yes
Richard Pryor: ok
Richard Pryor: lets get this done
Richard Pryor: what do u need from me
Dave W.: which size and color SV jacket
Richard Pryor: would like to try both black and orange in large.
Dave W.: okay and then which pants ?
Richard Pryor: not sure about the pants. perhaps we can decide that later on.
Dave W.: okay we don't have any large sized SV jackets
Richard Pryor: damn. all this trouble and not a single large jacket?
Richard Pryor: wtf?
Dave W.: no we don't have large in stock there unfortunately
Richard Pryor: u have 3 minutes to close the deal. Otherwise I'm out.
