No Way!

“PLEASE REMIT YOUR PAYMENT PROMPTLY!’
The words stood out like a beacon on the innocent screen. “Seriously!” she spat at the glass.
Scrolling angrily to the bottom of the page, she clicked on “contact us”…those innocuous words that usually meant a compliment or an inquiry from her, pleasant exchanges to brighten the day of some computer-bound college student working their way through school.
“Indeed!” The screen brightened, she set the cursor and typed furiously, “there will be no payment until I receive some recompense for the three day shipping that took six days! Thirty dollars is too much to pay for ruining my entire weekend!”

    I hate overpaying for shipping to begin with so if it takes longer than promised I am doubly mad 😦

  7. Shipping is so expensive anymore.

    Sometimes it felt like I was spending more on the postage than on the gift I was sending.

    Now, I choose things by how light they are!

    Sad!

    This was a reminder of so many times of frustration for so many of us!
