One package from Amazon did not come. I was so annoyed since it was my new, pink set of flannel sheets from Amazon. Finally, I was informed by email that it had arrived. A picture of a package on my front porch comforted me little.
Exactly the opposite was true. I felt targeted by a thief, fearing other packages would be stolen. I fretted over this, internally and aloud. Tommy was a little worried, too. I had been fussing about his mishandling of a package that I had told him to put in the first bedroom. He said he did what I said and put it in my bedroom. Well, no, there were two items in that box. Where is the other item and why did you put a cardboard box in my bedroom when I told you never to do that because I am afraid of a scrape in my skin that will lead to a need for wound care? Neither of us knew what the other was referring to in all these questions.
Finally, I went to the bedroom and looked in the offending cardboard box. There were my sheets.
Before we got to this point, I had gone online and reported them missing from the porch. So, replacements were on the way. It looked like I could have had free sheets. But, I did the right thing and now have to drive to somewhere to return them. UGH!
It is all straightened out, but it has been an ordeal. I was just sitting here wondering how many people say things are stolen just to get a replacement, free. Oh, I remember, I know someone who bragged to me about ten years ago that any package sent to his house (pre-Amazon), he reported it as not received. He has quit telling me about this "trick" but I assume he still does it, just not telling me because I highly disapprove.
We are no longer worried about someone deciding we are targets. Nor are we worried about anyone stealing future packages. Of course, anything is possible.
I am so weary I can barely move my little finger. Yes, I know I typed this. It seems the house condition has regressed since the cleaner was last here!
We have been monitoring how long the produce from the card for UHC have fared--no waste and length of time available to be eaten. So far, no waste. I did have to buy two more apples and bananas today, but that is normal and about three times each week. So far, we have bought no other fruits or vegetables.
Dinner: Me--roasted chicken and enormous amount of slaw. Tommy--remainder of hamburger-vegetable soup, bread. I had grapes.
Have you known anyone who continually stole, cheated and lied, taking advantage of individuals and businesses?
This has been a beautiful, sunny and dry Saturday. We have four more days like this predicted.
I've had very good experiences with Amazon. One time only one out of two bottles of vitamins arrived (poorly packaged) and another time I ordered a two-set cd pack and the one cd didn't work play. Both were replaced without a hassle. I guess the only suspiscious time was when I ordered an iPhone 12 and while it showed as delivered it never arrived. I explained to the young woman that since it was sent Chronopost someone must have had to sign for it. I'd guess someone just faniced a new iPhone but they were very good and reimbursed me without any hassle! Glad you got your sheets though!ReplyDelete
I have received Dawn that was leaking because the tops weren't on tight, broken china, vitamins very hot and with the lid off and not even in the box, and a few other things. But, overall, I like Amazon. You would think a phone would arrive in a brown wrapper!Delete
I cannot stand a thief. And it is so bad these days with people stealing to get drug money. I’m glad you found your sheets though.ReplyDelete
A thief is a very bad character. I know they will lie, cheat and do anything to get what they want! I was so surprised to find them...lol.
I suppose it is human character to assume something missing is due to theft and not us being a bungler.ReplyDelete
We always search all over, but not inside.
I got the Laura Ashley flannel sheets from HomeSense, think it's HomeGoods in the States.ReplyDelete
Thanks. I will check it out. I do need another set of sheets.
I knew someone who ate at restaurants at least 5x/week with her husband and child and always tried to get the bill comped. She and her husband would complain about EVERYTHING (food, service, noise level, restaurant too hot/cold, other diners too noisy) and try to get the bill reduced. It was so embarrassing and we quickly stopped eating out with them. There's a Yiddish word for them--schnorrers.ReplyDelete
I could not live with myself if I lived like that. That is an ugly word for people with ugly actions. Thanks for that. I would be embarrassed, too.
