    A note from the merch boss…

    Annoy Your Friends

      Hi, I’m Andrea, Dan’s wife and I, along with Tom’s wife run the merchandise for A Mediocre Time with Tom & Dan.

      I feel this is the perfect time to address some things about the merchandise for the show.  After receiving a nasty email from someone who ordered merch and didn’t get it right away, I am going to lay it all out there so everyone knows what to expect.

      The guys have been selling merch for almost three years.  From the t-shirts to stickers to bracelets, they are selling this merch not to make money, but to get the name of their show out there.  (They ONLY break even.) When someone wears a shirt, that is the best advertising! Tom and Dan do the shirts for fun. In three years…we’ve only had one EXTREMELY rude complaint. Most people are understanding.

      So if you order a shirt or sticker or anything, give me some time.  I have a full time job, and a full time home life.  I may not get you your shirt in a week and it might not be two weeks, and depending on how crazy life is, it might take a month, but you will get it.  So relax.  We are not here to take your money or scam you, that isn’t what A Mediocre Time is about.

      You will get your merch, and it will be what you requested, but understand we do this out of my spare bedroom in my house.  We aren’t Amazon; we don’t have priority shipping, or even express shipping.  If you need it in time for something, send us a note and I will try my best to help you out.

      I can’t get to the post office every day, that would be impossible, and really I don’t want to go there every day.  I do orders when there is enough to make a decent trip, and it’s probably going to ship out on a Saturday.

      My request is to please understand that right now this is a side project and everyone has full time jobs, so if you purchase anything you will get it.  I can’t guarantee when you will get it, but you will.  Please be patient with us.  And please be nice.  I do this to help the show and the guys out, and when someone gets mean and nasty it makes me not want to do it.

      Thanks for your support for A Mediocre Time and your continued support in buying merchandise.

      Andrea

      a PS from Dan…

      Nice work you dumb asses! You pissed her off and she really does work her ass off to provide something cool for you “scumbags.” I read the above letter and I sort of read it as a very long winded “I work hard for you…you don’t like it? Go fuck yourself.” Hahaha…ok. I hope she feels better and sorry if there have been merch delays but it’s been crazy lately. Thanks again for everything… #snoots

        Where is my fucking shirt……….Oh I didn’t order one

      • Janitor

        whoever sent that email is an asshole.  I hope that when you finally sent out their package you included a little bit of pee pee with it.

      • Jckin@Wrk

        Crystal doesn’t have a job does she. Maybe the bird could help her lick the stamps with its little black tongue.

          Tom, really got to put your woman to work!

      • poolderf

        you tell em! 

      • Izziart

        Okay guys, I’m sympathetic, but being an old dog in the biz, I can tell you that you guys are packing stuff up in the most time-consuming manner possible, if your photo is accurate! You should be standing up. Your product should be on long work tables organized in a step by step manner — like a production line. Its the way its done professionally and all that means is that like a baby, the process started at a crawl and progressed from there. In the meantime, put a safety-net on the delivery time that will cover you… 6 to 8 weeks or sooner and when it arrives sooner that makes your customers happy…. I hope I’ve been helpful.

        • http://www.TomandDan.com/ Tom and Dan

          Totally helpful! (If you have enough room and happen to have a few large tables lying about.) :) 6-8 weeks is what we tell people and shipping’s free…but apparently that’s not good enough. 

          • Izziart

            Free shipping??? Well hang the crummy bastards that complain!!! Room is something I understand, but I’m talking FOLDING tables dear heart — Anyhoo, judging by all these great replies — everyone loves you all, so let the steam die down — Now you know a lot more people like you than not, and just keep truckin””””””””””””””””””””””””””””’

            • http://www.TomandDan.com/ Tom and Dan

              Here’s the thing…other than the shirt…the site, the App, the show…we try to keep EVERYTHING free. Sort of our mantra. 

      • Bokeypunk

        What a rotten Fuck! My merch experience as been great. You very kind and helpful with me when you ran out of LDS shirts and picked a backup shirt. And then you were even more helpful when I couldn’t get that shirt because of the meetup and picked something else. That person who complained should taken to the St. Johns and well… you know.
        Thank you Andrea and Crystal for all your awesomeness. And thanks to Tom and Dan for giving us scumbags something to enjoy.

        PS and thanks to the one guy Ross. Can’t forget him.

      • Mondo43

        I’ve always got my stuff in 2-3 weeks. I know what a pain in the ass it is since I deal with a semi-pro football teams merch. Someone’s always looking to bitch, but never the first to pitch in.

        Keep on practicing those backflips Tom. Vodka….it’s a helluvadrug

      • Velonola

        I appreciate what they do for us and you.
        That’s awesome you have intelligent wives that support
        you playing radio.

        Sucking fat titties you whining little
        bitch scumbag orderin homos.

          Love your name.

      • Izziart

        Well it looks like you guys were just having a well-deserved crummy day and some inconsiderate customer was the straw that broke the camels back — because judging by all these great emails about your service, product, and show — its overwelmingly positive…. So take a vodka, a run around the block, kick the dirt (my favorite) and keep on doing the great job you are obviously doing! (And its great reverse marketing — Now you really know how good you are and how devoted your customers are! Keep up the great work, but really — get some tables and stand up!)

      • Kelly

        I personally had a situation with a shirt, that was more my fault than anything. ANDREA fixed it and was super nice about it. You fuckers better be nice to her, both of those girls dont have to do shit for any of us. We all know what would happen if the guys were in charge of looking at a order, packing it, making a shipping label and it making it to the post office. omg, no one would see anything (no offense guys). Appreciate those girls you piece of shit ding dong face who sent them a rude e mail.

      • Kelly

        Whoever this asshole is owes Andrea a Mac cosmetics gift card.

      • Rdufresne

        Andrea you should’ve just refunded their money and not sent the merch. That not someone that should wear a T&D shirt representing the show.

      • shirt wearing human

        When someone is rude to me I am rude back, its that simple. I thought I was arguing with Daniel anyway. I apologize from the bottom of my empty black heart that pumps trucker vomit. If I ever meet you I’ll let you slap me…once….maybe not. Sorry to Andrea and who ever was involved. 

      • Tonybel

        There is always an asshole!!!!!
        Be patient it’s only a shirt. Love the show.

        • http://www.TomandDan.com/ Tom and Dan

          But it’s a pretty nice shirt. (Still only a shirt…you’re correct.)

          • FuckThatSamGuy

            In fact, my green Dragon Titties shirt is THE most comfortable shirt that I own right now. You guys do not fuck around.

        The smaller the organization the more forgiving I am when it comes to wait times.  I think the dick who complained needs to adopt a similar policy.  If it’s a big store like Amazon I’ll be up there ass but a few individuals who work from home get way more time to do what it a second job….for no pay. 

        • http://www.TomandDan.com/ Tom and Dan

          That’s sort of how we look at it. We’ve sold more shirt then we ever thought possible…and your forgiveness is paramount. 

      • JeffreyKR.

        I vote that whoever was an ass to Andrea be bestowed a title that represents the exact opposite of Lambodick-status. Something that represents everything shitty and stinky in our world. Something that represents not being cool under pressure. Something that represents being an uptight taint. 

        I vote that we bestow this person the title of Fiatpuss-status.

        Haters gonna hate. I think you behind-the-scenes girls are awesome. Thanks for spending your time getting our obscene T-shirts to us.

        • http://www.TomandDan.com/ Tom and Dan

          …hahaha…

        • http://www.TomandDan.com/ Tom and Dan

          Haha…

      • Asshole

        This person should probably kill them self…if you cant wait for a fucking shirt and or sticker in the mail you are fucking waisting my oxygen…do me and the rest of the scumbags a favor…run a hose from the exhaust of your car..into the window..and take a fucking nap

      • FuckThatSamGuy

        For what it’s worth, I’ve ordered twice from you guys, and it’s been a wonderful experience both times. I even got a little something extra with one of my orders, just because. If you don’t think they’re being professional enough, go to cafepress.com and order your shit. Or better yet, go to Wal-Mart and buy a lightning-wolf shirt, since that matches your personality a little better.

        Andrea and Crystal, thanks for helping us all out with things like this, even though you may not always get the recognition from us scumbags that you deserve.

      • Mousecliche

        I ordered a shirt for my slutty daughter and it was the wrong size and Andrea told me to kill her and let her fatty tissue get eaten by maggots and then the shirt would fit better. I did and it actually fits her well, she wont even take it off now. Maybe cause she’s dead.
