Time to GET GEPHART! (My email to the man in regards to a recent problem I have had with Harmons))

An actual email I sent to Get Gephart (gephardt@kutv2.com) tonight at 10:45 PM

Dear Mr. Gephart,

I have watched your segments for years on - 2 News, "Fresh Air" - and I have never had need to "get" you.  However, as times change, so do my needs and I am officially "getting Gephart".

For many years our family has become accustomed to purchasing candy from the bulk bins at the local Harmons Grocery Store.  In the past year or two, Harmons has rid their stores of such bins and we are relegated to purchasing regularly packaged candy.  When I questioned a Harmon's employee about the situation, he stated that he was "not sure why they don't have them anymore" and that "I have only worked here four months."  Yeah right! 

I would like to know the reason why the bins were eradicated.  I have a few theories that you might be interested in:

  • They were using the bins to traffic drugs in and out of the store.
  • The bins were littered with rodent dung.
  • The plastic the bins were made of had cancer causing agents (chemicals, compounds, etc.) in them.
  • The sour peach rings were being sliced by underpaid, orphan children from China.
  • Someone found a toe in the milkduds.
I am not saying that any or all of these violations actually took place.  However, given "Tony's" vague response to my inquiries, I feel that this is very much deserving of a Gephart investigation,

I am not trying to tell you how to do your job, but may I suggest throwing a few cameras in Tony's face and pressing him real hard about how long he has really been working there.  He knows something; I can just feel it. (Tony is the guy with bad acne and the spiky hair.)

Please Mr. Gephart, please help us get our bins back.  We miss our candy watermelon slices and those fake sweet tart things.  

Thank you for all you do to protect us Utahns from the greedy, corporate giants and online scammers.  I, for one, am deeply grateful.



When I get a response, I will post it to the blog.  I am sure that I am not the only one disappointed in Harmons for their shabby service as of late.

"I have never had to 'get' you."

Love it!

If Gephart doesn't respond I think you should email Bob and Randy directly.

Who can we turn to, to get "Get Gephart" if he refuses your case?

Is this something Siegfried and Jensen would take?

Tyler and Lyndsay said...

Ok, no kidding I wrote an email to Get Gephardt about 2 weeks ago. It's a long story but it was a horrible situation with Questar (those stupid idiots). Yeah, no response yet. I thought it was a very valuable story. Maybe he was just waiting for the candy bin story to come along. I'll watch for it on 2 News at ten.

I think you and Lyns just want to be on TV.

Lyndsay - I bet Gephart gets so many complaints about Questar he can't get to them all. I hate to say it, but I bet he has only ever gotten one complaint about the Harmon's candy bins. And yes Mel, I would like to be on TV - I want to be the first man ever in the Good Things Utah audience. Can you arrange this?
