I'm retired and old. How was I to know what today's date was? I thought he was taking delivery soon. Didn't realize soon was a couple days ago.
LOL. You are forgiven. I regularly have brain farts too.

Sorry. I should have said "Aug 28 2017"

And I'm a "she"

How did I know that would be the case, and yet was too lazy to change "he" to "they", or do a check. Sorry.

I don't follow. What are you saying?
One has a choice of "he", "she" or "they". With no clues to determine the correct term, "they" is now in use, although "they is" doesn't make sense.
And, why do you assume I am a male?

Moving Up

If dates open up and you have requested to be moved up I think it is reasonable to expect that you would be moved up in sequential order. If you pride yourself on customer service you should have a process in place to keep track of those requesting to be moved up. This could be a simple list with the names and trailer model ordered and their scheduled build date.

I have repeatedly asked to be moved up, any time I talk with ETI, haven't had any luck yet but I too would not be happy to find out that others with build dates after me where given earlier dates ahead of me without being contacted first. It is the right thing to do from both an ethical and business standpoint. Sorry that happened to you Laura.

Escape is juggling builds for 17s, 19s, 21s and 5.0s and TAs.
I don't think it's as simple to move builds around as some would suggest.
I'm still waiting for the cable guy.

That's absolutely true. For those of us who saw the old method (several years ago) whereby production dates were posted and the buyer selected a production date in the future, one could see that models were clustered in some kind of sequence that I, not knowing anything about trailer manufacture, could not comprehend. And that's when there were fewer models being produced.

Maybe buy a round for the house, that would get everyone to relax.
