When I found out Kid Rock was coming to Toledo I was SO EXCITED.
He is my all time favorite singer with so much energy and his concerts are always SO MUCH FUN.
Obviously, when I heard about this special Kid Rock Rebel Soul contest I IMMEDIATELY signed up, as I'm sure many of you did.
I knew my chances were slim, but just the thought of winning a "once in a lifetime opportunity" related to my man was enough to keep be hopeful -- and not care about the $15 I paid.
Much to my surprise, and excitement, the following week I received an email back.... I HAD WON THE CONTEST!! OHMYGOD I WAS GOING TO HAVE A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE AT A KID ROCK CONCERT!!!
I was so excited because only 2 people per area were allowed to be chosen, so it felt like I had won the lottery!!
But then, as I continued reading, I found out that Kid Rock Rebel Soul had messed up my entry. They entered my name into a city that I don't have tickets to and my stomach immediately dropped -- I wanted to throw up.
All of my hopes and dreams were granted and taken away with one sentence and I was immediately CRUSHED.
I sent KRRS an email back telling them about their mistake, and saying how all of my dreams would be forever crushed if they took my winner status away from me. I mean, how could they do that? I had WON. They took my name and put it in the wrong city -- did I ever even stand a chance for the Toledo show?
Finally, today, KRRS sent me an email back. "I'm sorry," they said, "but since the Toledo winners were already chosen, my status (and dreams) as a winner has to be taken away." Don't worry, though, they've offered to give me a nice T-shirt in order to sooth the pain.
Overall, I am completely disappointed with how KRRS handled the situation. How would one of you feel if you had won? I know the concert will still be fun, but I just cant help but wonder what it would have been like to have that ONCE IN A LIFETIME MOMENT at my favorite concert..................
