Cool Quality Control?

Last night, Trina rushes in to the house and announces that she needs lanyards RIGHT NOW! Well, the first thing I thought was that the ice cream man was now pin trading and maybe I could get a Dilly Bar in exchange for a 100 Years of Magic Disney Store pin. But no such luck, instead, she is planning to introduce her girls troop to pin trading at their camp this coming weekend. As a result, she is giving each of them a lanyard with two pins. This request of course meant it was my responsibility to find 15 lanyards and pins oh and could I create custom lanyard cards with their names on them? Still grumbling that I was A) going to miss out on a mini meet (guys are not allowed at girls camp. I still don't understand that, I didn't understand it when I was 15 and I don't understand it now) and B) I didn't get a Dilly Bar; I began digging through my pins and bags to find lanyards for her. When I brought out my Disney Pin trading Backpack that I bought last August, I found that one whole side of the material had frayed and one of the straps had come apart at the seam. This resulted in pins falling all over the floor and I was left holding part of the bag. Not only was this a bummer of a deal, but I also missed picking up all the pins. How do I know this you ask? Well I found the one pin I didn't pick up in the middle of the night when I went to get Dakota a drink of water. And as we all know, a pin always falls point up on the floor and when you lose a pin they never have the back attached to them. Now I find myself doing my best Yoda impression walking with a cane (if only I could do that cool Jackie Chan Yoda thing he does at the end of Episode 2) with a stack of pins and a broken pin backpack. My question is, has anyone else had trouble with the material coming apart on their backpacks? I am hoping that this was just a bad break and not a normal occurance. Before I replace it (hmmm, I wonder if anyone is at WDW that could pick me up a new bag?), I was curious if anyone else has had problems with their pin bags/backpacks?

Sorry Jeff

I never buy Disney items that come apart, all my Disney items last forever.

Psstttt just between you and me those bag were all pulled and replaced with newer bags... me thinks for a reason.

Now mind you I'm not suggesting that you clean it up as best you can, come to Florida buy a new one, wait a week and before you leave return the broken one and get your money back no that would be wrong.

Plus you would go straight to heck for even thinking of such a plan.

Side note when you get to heck look me up I'm in management, and can get you a new bag.

I'm suggesting you contact a lawyer on that there serious injury you sustain due to the incompetence of some Disney worker, and the poor workmanship Disney has displayed in the manufacturing of your bag… why your kids and wife have suffered greatly during this time, after your injury that left you a mere shell of a man, and was cause by those evil Disney manufacturing devils… they should as you be compensated for all the pain and suffering caused to you and them.

(Go get in bed and act depressed... moan alot and dont walk for a month) I'm thinking therapy is needed here.

I'm thinking Jazzy's versus Disney, a supreme court ruling that will make that McDonalds hot coffee thing looks like child's play.

Why wait is that gangrene I see setting in? OMG we need Johnny Cochran I can see it now… "If the pin did stick you must not acquit"

And we are not stopping there my friend, and just why are older men not allowed at campfire girl meeting especially if pins are involved. Tell your wife we are suing the girl scouts as well. Oh yes by the time we get done cookies for everybody.

Once again the people will learn you do not mess with pin people… HAHAHAHAHA…..

Anyway Jeff I have to go and take my medicine I'll check with you in a few days.

Okay, on a serious note Jeff, you can call WDW Merchandising. Tell them what happened to the backpack. They will give you an incident # and an address to send the backpack back to. Once they receive it and look it over, they will replace it with a new one for you.
Best of luck in your endeavor--and by the way--you should look into a good pair of bedroom slippers to keep next to your bed :D

OUCH!!!!

Look at the bright side, now you'll have 15 more persons to trade with, buy for, get sharked by, and I'm sure you already get taken advantage of since you are the "Dad" and all the little girls just give you that cutesy little smile and you are bait!!!!!

Jeff, where were you the other night? I moved a cabinet. The cabinet door does not latch. I thought I could move it without unloading it. Well, the two containers with straight pins fell out & pins went all over the carpet on the floor. I tried picking the pins up by hand - ouch! Then I tried using a magnet - it was small & not strong enough. So, I used our vacuuming system - wrong! Uh-oh! This is beginning to sound like a Jeff story, & you weren't even here, but I blamed you anyway !

Judith,

I am very confused. Why do you separate your pins based on sexual preference? Not that there is anything wrong with that. I just never thought of categorizing my pins in that way before.

JEFF!!!!!!!!!
ROTFLMBO!!!!
You have to excuse Judith. She is strange that way, keeping the straight ones hidden away. But at least the latch was broken, so the potential for escape was always there.

Hey, Jeff,

In an answer to you question (there was one in there somewhere, right?), yes, my backpack also broke. In a typical Florida afternoon thunderstorm, we made a mad dash for France in Epcot when the strap completely came off. Fortunately, the bag didn't open.
Anyways, I took some carpet thread to it and fixed it. But, since the damage to yours is so extreme, I would definitely call Merchandising as Sue Ellen suggested.

Jeff, your mind is in the gutter ! We discussed this in chat!

The items in my cabinet are organized - just my personality - has nothing to do with preferences!

Talking

:D
What do "non-straight" pins look and act like Judith? Did they fall out of the cabinet also or were they able to hang on? Or do you keep them in the closet?
