I wad BORN, let me repeat myself Born in Boston, MA. I went to college there graduated and went straight into retail managment. I have been in retail now for 19yrs. I have been working with BB nw for 7 1/2 yrs. I am a single mother of a 7 yr old boy, I live here in Georgia close by my parents, brother and sister and their families. My travel and when I travel is usually 3-4days and no more because of my son. My travel time to Panama was fly in tuesday the 26 and out the 29th. I cant understand how you got that there must be more from this than just spilt perfume! Lets go back a bit "hello how did I get back in the US?" If thete was more to my story why would the States ley me back in. I do think the US has much more sophisticated equipment then Panama. I dont think you get the whole point of my email "crying over spilt perfume" not a chance! The last time I cried was when my son was born at 24weeks at 1lb 6oz and given 30% survival so dont tell me about crying! I still think I was the pick day! Look Ive traveled to plenty countries to know whats right and whats wrong, whats unprofessional and whats professional behavior. I still think they handled the whole situation very poorly. I am just trying to figure out how a country supposedly working to build relationships with retailers to bring more business to their country can be treated so unprofessional. I must add to this I did not ask to go to Panama I was asked by the group that is franchising BB to come out and train their employees. So where your getting there must be more to this story, Im sorry but there isnt! I am no criminal, nor am I in any sort of group. I am just a manager at a BB store! Sorry that I wasnt some sort of spy or something maybe it would of made your perception of my mishap a little more exciting!"
Editor's Comment: Look, I have no idea why the government of Panama refused you entry. It very well could have been because of the spilled perfume, as you suspect. However, it could also have been for some other reason. And once again, nowhere in this email did you explicitly claim the Panamanian authorities said you were being refused entry because your passport was damaged (by the perfume). That's what you suspect, and I understand your position, but the fact of the matter is - you don't know for sure. I have two more observations - glad to see Brooks Brothers is coming to Panama. Secondly, you might want to consider using both a spelling and grammar checker before sending out any more written communications. Just a suggestion...
