Man, how miserable for this poor woman!! GIVE HER BACK HER HEARING AID! IS ANYONE AT MIRACLE EAR LISTENING?
Anybody who hangs up on a woman just trying to get her life back together like this
is a total jerk.
This company should be ashamed! What a disgrace.
My sympathies to Lucille, and I'm very glad you have such great daughters.
Way to get the word out, Chuck Slothower!
Do the right think Miracle Ear! Word is traveling fast - I'm thousands of miles
away, but I'll be blasting this story around pretty quick.

What does FPD have to do with the hearing aide, it is a civil matter, not police matter at this point.

I feel bad for the woman and any others who have had their hearing aids kept from them. If Jaimee Burke is who your looking for, scour the bars and listen for the loud mouthed blond making an arse out of herself! Shame on you Jaimee!!!

You can find Jaimee and her husband at the Elk's Lodge every afternoon getting drunk.

I know Jaime and I say she wont show to return hearing aids. She will have somebody else take care of it, if she evens does that. If she does it will be a real miracle

This is typical of the way businesses here treat customers- that's why I do as much of my purchasing as possible over the web or in Albuquerque. San Juan County businesses don't deserve my, or your, patronage until they understand that customers should be treated with some small amount of respect.
This situation is extreme, even for the area. I hope that this lady, and all customers who may have similar problems are taken care of soon. This is a crime- where is FPD?

Unfortunately there are many unethical, immoral distributors out there, and you can bet the farm that Beltone and Audibel are in the same class as Miracle Ear. Trust me, I know from hard earned experience.

So has anyone heard if the hearing aids were returned today? I drove by there several times today and did not see anybody around.
