I usually love this time of year purely for the fact that I love to find gifts for others. Even with money tight do to my health issues, I still find ways to “pay it forward” if you will.
I’ve belonged to the MomDot forum since well, it began. Every year there’s been something fun, card exchanges, gift exchanges, etc. This year, it was a stocking exchange. It was made very clear that if you signed up and did not follow through, you would be taken off the forum. Everyone was given fair warning NOT to sign up if you weren’t going to follow through.
Names were drawn and picked out. I e-mailed my partner to say, hey we’ve been partnered up.
Several conversations continued on, much with one word answers or
Heyo! 🙂 OK! So I’m gonna be making your thinger ASAP…. my husband is being anal about moneys right now and I don’t wanna get kicked off momdot so I’m like AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH hehe.
Just letting you know 🙂
I said hey fine, I understand money being tight. (I have all the e-mails saved but yeah, posting it all would be a pain in my ass, more than this already has been. I started to get hesitant that anything would ever come but I sucked it up, got delivery confirmation and sent it off. I e-mailed twice about the package being on it’s way as well as since I ordered my postage online-it was sent directly to her e-mail from USPS.
Finally, I got
yea i got it just now 🙂 ill be sending yours out on wed 🙂 needed to get some moneys ;P
Really. Not.even.a.Thank You. I waited the time alloted it would have taken to be received and then I had enough. I outted her on Twitter and also let Trisha know, I was getting a bunch of crap. She was taken off of the forum.
She had whined on Twitter about not receiving packages from other exchanges and the chance for her to play World of Warcraft but yet, she didn’t have money to send an item out. AFTER THE ITEMS were in hand, she still had the balls to say she never expected a package from me.
Osvme on Twitter was put in her place when she didn’t answer me. I was fed up with excuses.
Today, I received a package FROM ME TO ME with New Jersey post on it. Inside I found my stocking, all paint ripped off it and destroyed. And with a lovely letter.
“I am returning the gift you sent me. Since you said you could have given them to your children, I suggest you do that. I had your gift wrapped and boxed ready to be shipped. Then i saw your childish rant on twitter. I am appalled _________” Had I known I was joining a group of childish adults I would’ve looked elsewhere”
It went on.
The best part. Everything had been opened.
Hello Kitty ornament missing
Lotion seal broke
Massage oil seal broke
Chapstick packaging gone, lid was off in box
Stamp Kit, box gone from purchase packaging.
Paint scratched off stocking, just to be thrown away.
Yeah, I’m not giving my child OPEN chapstick that god knows what a person full of dishonesty would do to items she opened and then returned for me to “give to my children” There were other items in the box but that just topped the cake.
Do not sign up for something when you are unable to accept responsibility for your actions.
Thank god I didn’t buy a bunch of World of Warcraft shit I would have wasted money on. Enjoy your $300 dolls. Just don’t hold any conversations with them, your WoW friends might get alarmed.
