June : A Record Breaking Month for The Firework Shop!
Last month was a great month for us all here at The Firework Shop, and – with 32 bookings – we beat our January 2015 previous record of 29 bookings!
It was pointed out to me way back in January that only a Disney world would have been able to beat our number of bookings (they shoot every night, and Jan. had 31 days, so they beat us by 2! lol), but last month – 30 days, with 32 bookings – would actually place us as the busiest firework business (booking-wise) on the entire planet!!!
OK … so any Disney Land would probably shoot more actual fireworks in one week than we would in a whole year lol, but – as far as the NUMBER of shoots goes, The Firework Shop are World Champions! Yay 🙂
If anyone knows of a firework business that had more bookings last month than we did, I would love to hear about it!
Big, big, BIG thanks to all the staff, who have worked (and continue to work) so hard. We may well be ‘small fry’ compared to the huge shoots of the big guys, but the fireworks we use are exactly the same (in fact bigger than a lot of those used by European companies, due to the restrictions they must work to), and they are just as potentially dangerous, so there is NEVER a time we can relax or get complacent about what we do!
Arrogance, complacency and a big ego are the perfect ingredients for an accident as far as fireworks are concerned… you only have to look at Robert/Ralph Taylor’s firework safety record to see that! (Robert/Ralph Taylor is another firework ‘supplier’ on Koh Samui, and holds his own record… one of setting fire to the most villas, wedding tents and trees on Samui!).
I am so proud that our teams make sure that the set-up and shooting protocols and safety levels we have in place are never compromised – no matter how big or small the shoot is – and that they would also never compromise the safety of people or property.
A lot of the guys have been with us for many years, and could easily be considered as ‘equals’ by any of their U.S. or European peers. They would be more than capable of working alongside any of those ‘Big Guys’ … another fact that makes me very proud to have them onboard.
This month is already looking busy, with 25 bookings confirmed and 2 yet to be finalised, so no holidays booked yet! lol
And… if you are reading this Robert Taylor (also known as Ralph Taylor or Simon Sneddle!) I would like to make a point of thanking you! The numerous scandalous lies and slanderous comments you have made about myself, La-on, our business and our staff on the internet over the last 5 years has only helped to spur us on to be more professional in our work, and more determined to succeed in a way you could only ever dream of … of being the best that we can be … doing the best that we can do … and helping to make hundreds of freshly married couple’s wedding days even more special by providing them with our magical firework displays!
Of course, you didn’t actually help yourself very much by setting fire to a few villas along the way … or that wedding tent … or those trees and shrubs … or even covering wedding guests in firework debris … and shooting that firework ‘accidentally’ actually into a villa that time wasn’t such a good idea and didn’t do your already failing reputation much good either! Likewise simply not turning up for bookings (including a wedding and a kid’s birthday!)… So yes, your customers have left you in droves and come to us … the thing is, they have stayed with us! (NOT setting fire to villas helps lol) and now they can judge for themselves the difference in safety… in service… in professionalism… and – of course – just how much better our firework displays are!
So… thank you Robert/Ralph Taylor/Simon Sneddle … from the heart of my bottom! 🙂
And now I intend to fix myself a rather large Gin and Tonic (with ice and lemon, of course) and revel in my smugness lol lol 🙂 🙂 🙂
The Firework Shop rules!!! 🙂
