I had hand surgery, so I've been sidelined for a while. This morning I decided to go practice 4 games at the local lanes.
My hand was a little painful, but not to the point where it distracted me from bowling. (I'm used to pain).
After a few frames my balls didn't come back from the ball return. Finally after 10 minutes they came back and my spare ball had a deep gouge circle completely around the circumference, about 1/8" deep! I turned the ball in to the front counter to get fixed/replaced.
Then several frames later my strike ball didn't come back. Yep, you guessed it, big gouge but only part way around the ball. So I requested a lane change and turned the ball in to the front counter to get fixed/replaced.
To add insult to injury, I told the lane attendant that lane 32 ate both my balls. He snapped back at me "Yeah, I know I'm the mechanic." I said, "You seem upset". He said "I'm not upset, I'm just indifferent". WOW - what an attitude -- not even an apology or something like I'm sorry that happened to you.
Have any of you here had to deal
with bowling center employees with a sour attitude towards customers?
And I have league Tuesday night and nothing to bowl with. Because of my bad hand, it took some trial and error to get the right fit. I'm afraid the Pro Shop
in Rocklin will just do what they did last time which was a pathetic patch job. They just filled it in with super glue
and didn't even bother to sand it. I'm really screwed now.
