I got a call earlier today from Mike in the Mets ticket office wanting to talk about my opening day options at Citi Field.
He proceeded to ask if I plan to make any games this year and I said yes, but that I wasn’t sure which ones because of other things coming up this spring and summer. I did say the August 1st game is appealing for the Mets Hall of Fame inductions, but that I’ll see if I can make the trip. He took that opportunity to try and sell a 15 pack that included tickets to that game, which he even said probably isn’t the best option for me since I live out of town.
I then took the opportunity to clear up my mailing address. Even though when I login online and see my Chicago information, they still have my New York information attached to my account (in addition to the Chicago info).
I don't sell tickets. However, I am going to guess that like many salesmen, Mets ticket agents have some sort of incentive to sell more tickets. Maybe they get a bonus, or a gold star, or a parking spot. Regardless, someone tried to sell a 15 game pack to someone who is in the database as living in Chicago.
