OK, I'm just venting my frustration...

Unfortunately they don't have many veggie options or anything organic or I'd probably order from them more often!
See, this is the weird thing, our ice cream was delivered today and I got a really bad vibe from the guy. He basically told me that now we were on his delivery route and he'd be coming by every two weeks and that we were expected to buy something. Which I told him I thought they'd only come by if we ordered online...? That seems a little messed up to me!
Anyhow, I seem to be in the minority of what I have heard, but most definitely this guy was annoyed at giving out free stuff--specifically he stated to me:
1. He works on commision.
2. Shwann wasn't doing this to 'give out free food' they're doing it to get new paying customers on their route.
3. He would be by here again in two weeks to sell me food, even if I don't make an order online they have deals they can offer in person.
I explained to him basically that I was thinking of using their service on a situational basis (aka, like after I'd given birth and was pretty busy and needed something convienient without leaving the house).
So, it sounds like he's going to be back in two weeks to try to hard sell me.
The irony--I was going to look and see what they had if anything looked good and order...now the guy REALLY turned me off to that
I totally think that he pre-judged us based on appearance. I hate to say it, but my house isn't that big, and I opened the door holding baby with three other kiddos behind looking like frumpy mom. Not to mention our front door has chipped paint and I've been waiting until jungle season is over to repaint it. So, he likely just thought "oh these people are just in it for free ice cream." I'm guessing he wouldn't guess I was married to a professional with a good income. Sigh.
Which just irks the crap out of me. Why couldn't have the guy just been nice, polite? He could have spent the time telling me how delicious and convienient the food is.
Now I'm totally turned off to ordering in the future.
And, the irony, DH warned me that something like this might happen. Not because he knew of the company before, but he just figured the guy worked on commission and may not have a good attitude about 'working for free'.
