Australia Angst And Anger Part Deux



Well, all I can say is that there is something a bit off with Mr. Beckett Tucker. After sending him my email stating that I was no longer interested in coming to his bar in Sydney and expressing my disappointment in him I got the following two emails on Monday, October 31st. The second one, apparently, was because some of you actually took the time to contact him to let him know how you felt about things.

Dan,

Give me this week please I am meeting with alcohol companies tomorrow (Hieneken, Absolut and StArnou) to finalise a sponsorship plan with them to help fund it. I have a hotel sorted out and everything is looking good. I have had problem accessing emails recently and have been going crazy trying to organize everything, we still want everything to go ahead. There are still two months to go and I have the tickets held by a friend of mine at a travel agency. I will call you tommorrow when I find out the story.

Kind Regards

Beckett


and

Hi Dan,

I have been recieving some pretty hateful emails like the one I have attached, if I do in fact manage to sort this out I hope you make it clear that I never actually meant not to reply to your emails or do you wrong. I found this email below embarrassing for the person who wrote it.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Kind Regards,

Beckett Tucker


Now forget the contents of the email that he felt was so hateful, note a few other things, aside from the obvious ones, that he never did call me and I have yet to receive any kind of follow-up email:

First, he says that my airline tickets are being held by a friend of his and he has the hotel sorted out. I don't understand how this could be because I have never been able to get in touch with him to finalize travel dates. This despite the fact that I would need advance notice as to when I would leave and I would want to schedule the dates for my return from Sydney so that I would have time to see a bit of the city. This is from an email that I sent to him addressing these issues:

"I will be leaving for Spain tomorrow and will be gone for a couple of weeks. Perhaps we can work towards finalizing some travel arrangement when I get back. I would like to stay in Sydney for awhile after the first of the year but I will, of course, pick up the expenses for that part of the visit. Deciding on the date to leave for Sydney and the date of my return is something that I would like to do fairly soon though so I can start to make arrangements at this end."

Now how do you hold tickets when you haven't finalized the dates of travel and don't even have my wife's name.

Then, second, if you read between the lines, despite having said seveal months ago that this was a "done deal," he now says:

"...if I do in fact manage to sort this out I hope you make it clear that I never actually meant not to reply to your emails or do you wrong."

If I do in fact manage to sort this out?

Also, he says "I have had problem accessing emails recently..." Recently? I have been sending him emails for a couple of months trying to get more information about what was going on.

I might be willing to give Beckett a nod on not being malicious, but it certainly seems as though he bit off a lot more than he could chew and just could not pull this off. And again, why would you tell someone you have the tickets already and have sorted out the hotel arrangements and will call the next day with the details and then not call or send an email. I totally do not understand this guy.

Two people with whom I have exchanged emails have actually visited the Vanilla Room to try to talk to Mr. Tucker in person and have not been able to find him.

Anyway, once again I will give you his email address if you want to let him know how you feel about this. For my part I want nothing more to do with him.

Beckett Tucker

If you do drop Mr. Tucker a line, do keep it on the civil side please. I don't think there is anything to be gained by being rude and obnoxious just because someone else is inconsiderate.

This is understandably an annoying situation for you, Bar Man. But I hope you will try to move past it and find some other lovely activity to close out your very special year. Once my camera bag was stolen in Naples, Italy, and I let myself feel furious/bitter about it for the length of a train ride to Venice, then forced myself to let it go so as not to spoil the rest of the trip. I'm sure the options are endless for you on New Year's and cannot wait to hear what you choose to do!

Lisa said...

P.S. Bar Man, it also occurs to me that you are SOOOO lucky to have found out this guy is a flake now, instead of after you were there or it was otherwise too late for you to make an even better plan!

I once met an Australian at a bar in Paris. He gave me his name and number (or maybe it was his address) and told me I was welcome to visit anytime. I hung onto it for a while but eventually tossed it, figuring it had just been the beer talking. I'll never know, but from your experience it was probably a good decision. Maybe Aussies tend to get overly hospitable after a few beers.

I will have to say that most Australian's that I have met, both in Australia, abroad, and here in the United States, have been great. Lot's of fun and great people to party with. I consider Mr. Beckett Tucker to be an unfortunate exception.

I believe this guy has been pulling your leg big time big bro. How vague and inconsistant can it get? Like they say in Australia, My boomerang wont come back.
