Ordered a Quilt Kit from KeepsakeQuilting.com back on Dec 8th; figured ordering early would, pretty much, guarantee it being here by Christmas. Was looking forward to the look on SWMBOâ€™s face for a) ordering something she had mentioned that sheâ€™d like, and, b) actually listening to her about something sheâ€™d like.
Notice I said â€œWas.â€ After 10 days of not hearing anything about my order being shipped, I sent an e-mail off to their Customer Support asking about it. TODAY, Dec 22nd, I get an email back asking if I could call because there had been a â€œproblemâ€ with my order.
Now, the way I look at it: The â€œproblem;â€ Their fault, My fault, it doesnâ€™t really matter. What matters is that the company waited until I contacted them before identifying a â€œproblem,â€ and by the time a â€œproblemâ€ was identified it was too late (without me paying extra for timely delivery) for the present to get to me before Christmas Day. Which is why I ordered it on Dec 8th in the first place.
So, no, Iâ€™m not gong to call. Just cancel the order (that was never actually made) and Iâ€™ll take my business someplace else. Probably Jo Annâ€™s Fabrics. Hate to do it but I know sheâ€™ll like whatever I get there. Donâ€™t get me wrong: Jo Annâ€™s is great! I just hate to fall back to the Old Stand-By. (If you know what I mean.)
Not much else going on today. Made a trip to Les Schwab to buy a gift card for SWMBO for her Son; but the card she wanted me to use was expired. Hate that. Sheâ€™s going to find the newer card for me this evening and I get to go again tomorrow. Joy.
Had planned to be a lot busier today than I got to be. Did get a chance to take the Dog out and cut some bushes that have been growing where they werenâ€™t supposed to be. Itâ€™s still really wet out there! Way Wet.
So I made baked Tilapia lightly coated with peppercorn & butter, Norway style veggies, and All-Rotten taters for dinner. Like I need to make myself fatter! But it was good!
And thatâ€™s about it. We be home from picking her up at the Ferry Landing. Wx still sucks out there. Getting cold but not cold enough to snow. Iâ€™m gonna go lay down and read.
