Steve Fallon (Pipestud) shared this in the October 2020 issue of The Pipe Collector:
Customer: Steve, my parcel was held up and likely it is because of 2 tins of NASPC Year 2014 Limited Edition Show Blend Goblin Weed. Does it really contain a controlled substance?
At first, I thought my customer was joking with me and my initial response was tongue in cheek:
Pipestud: LOL! Yes, that nasty old pipe tobacco sure is being treated as a controlled substance these days!
Customer: So it’s true it does contain weed? Oh my God! Can I get them to send it back to you? It’s death penalty here in Singapore.
Pipestud: I thought you were joking with me. It’s only pipe tobacco. In the USA, we often call pipe tobacco “pipe weed.” The name Goblin Weed was done in fun.
Customer: Is there any info on that tobacco that I can show to Customs?
Pipestud: Yes, the information for that blend can be found on the very popular website, tobaccoreviews.com
Customer: I do not know if that will save me. I am returning the parcel.
Pipestud: I guess that I don’t blame you. I will send you an immediate PayPal refund and please do send the tins back to me at your convenience.
I’m still awaiting the tobacco and I hope my customer is still with us!
I emailed Steve: Hi Steve, I had to laugh reading your exchange with your customer from Singapore and want to assure you that not all Singaporeans are that stupid.
Steve’s reply: LOL! Thanks for the chuckle! No, I think that poor fellow was just a wee bit over the top with his concerns. (-;
Thanks for the note and have a great rest of your day!
If I ever find out who this retard is, I’ll like to walk up to him and give him a tight slap.
That irritant should just stay home and suck his mother’s tits.
