Absolutely True... and Absolutely OUTRAGEOUS!

To Whom it may concern:

Do you ship to APO addresses? I'm in the 1st Cavalry Division stationed in Iraq and we are trying to order some mats but we are looking for who ships to APO first.

SGT Hess,
We do not ship to APO addresses, and even if we did, we would NEVER ship to Iraq. If you were sensible, you and your troops would pull out of Iraq.

Why would I ever want to do business with someone who was so disrespectful to a potential customer OR that disrespectful to someone who has no choice in being in Iraq OR be so disrespectful to someone who puts it on the line so that discount-mats can be in business. Of course, we know our military works hard to protect even a$$es like the people at this firm. It's a shame, but our military is an equal opportunity protector... I sure hope this wasn't the company's actual position -- just some misinformed, misguided employee who has since been fired (not for his/her political opinion, but because the person is an idiot to say so.)
Note: this must have a lot of people pretty angry as their website is "experiencing technical difficulties" and asks that contacts be made by email or phone.

Ignoramuses.

This will go viral and they will have cut off their nose to spite their face.

I'll be posting this @ my place & hope others do the same. I'm not sure if moonbats need discount mats, but if they do, now they will know where to shop.

For those of us with actual jobs and the need for mats, we will take our business elsewhere.

I suppose they really didn't want to be in business anymore.

I agree. Now THIS is disrespect shown towards troops, not moms who care about their kids.

I just visited the Discount-Mats.com website, and it proudly announces that they sell “Anti Fatigue” mats!!! First they won’t sell mats to our troops, and now they sell mats that actually damage military fatigues!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
