Yesterday, I made an online purchase at Office Max. As soon as the order was placed, I realized that I ordered the wrong thing. I immediately called and within 5 minutes, it was cancelled. When I checked e-mail last night, there was one informing me that delivery was scheduled for today! I called and was assured that my order was cancelled and it was a standard e-mail generated by the company. Well today, guess what? :nod The Office Max truck pulls up with the delivery today. I refused it but when I placed yet another call to these idiots, I learned that I was charged for it! And they won't credit my account until the item is back in their warehouse and the paperwork goes through a zillion departments. I was pissed and the guy was so rude that I asked for his supervisor. By the time it was all over, I got a $50 gift certificate! Of course, I'm still out $110 until they credit me! :pissedoff
My only shopping story was I ordered some tshirts online for the girls. Got one X Large and one Large. (cute shirts by the way, one with a cute little dirty cartoon pig and one with a lovely spirt wolf.)
The X Large is signifcantly smaller then the Large which is huge.
Oh well, the one XLarge came from a web page that keeps boasting about it's great return policy and the the Large is going to a kid who likes really big shirts so that should work out.
I hate how you can no longer tell a size by the size, every place seems to have a different standerd.
nlmcp - it sounds like the XL is a child's XL, and the L is adult. But you're right... being a large size myself, I always check what a catalogue means when it says XL. Sometimes XL is a size 16 or even 12/14 which makes me really mad. I refuse to buy anything from a company that considers those sizes XL.
It didn't say child's XL on the bill, webpage or shirt.
Now, one on tag it does say "Jr XL" and the inside tag just says "XL" but usually that means Jr size which are a tad narrower then adult misses, but this is significantly smaller.
Oh well, if it doesn't fit, I'll return it and see how good the returns are.
But it is such a cute shirt.
Critical - cookies are a very nice gift. I can give you my address at the same time I give it to gabriel. :)
I always do my shopping super-early because I can't stand going to stores in December. They are always just so insane.
All done...I don't 'buy' much.
For my sister, her husand, and kids, we're all supposed to go to a killer Mexican restaurant next Friday, my treat.
Younger sister and daughter will get a trip to the new Georgia Aquarium, whenever they're ready.
For my fella, I made cookies, a pecan pie, beef jerkey, and bought him some fishing lures. I put the fishing lures in this gourd that I painted...
My brother specifically requested "a bunch of socks and underwear" ::ohno
My Mom, Dad and I all agreed not to exchange as we all have too much crap laying around already! :lol
That is a neat gourd queen b, you painted that?
