Okay, I try really hard not to complain. Today, however, I just need to vent. Please feel free to join me. Today has been a great day; however, there are a few things that have caused me to get testy today.
1. I strongly dislike forgetting things. Here’s what I forgot: I didn’t list Ina’s wonderful blog, Ina in Wonderland, in my One Lovely Award Blog Post a few days ago. I’m praying that I didn’t overlook anyone else. I’ve become the absent-minded professor I promised not to become. Please forgive me.
2. I strongly dislike when bloggers are too busy to respond to questions on blog posts. None of the blogs I frequent and love do this, but I’ve noticed blogs that I don’t follow (at times links lead me to these blogs) where readers are asking for information about an outfit to no avail. I love this community because people are responsive and caring.
3. I called the 1-800 number for a retailer that shall remain nameless to ask for information about an item that the company has posted pictures of on their twitter and instagram accounts. The CS representative was adamant that she couldn’t help me without a style number (I normally have the style #, but the item is sold out online, and my local retail store never received the item). I was able to find the item after I followed someone else’s link from Instagram back to their blog. The person said that they own the item, I noticed that they live in Austin, Texas, so I called the retail stores in Austin. Thankfully, a really helpful associate found the item for me in Dallas, Texas. It’s on the way to me. Why was this process so frustrating? I was definitely reminded about why I shop almost exclusively at J. Crew and Anthropologie.
And, finally, I bought this lovely shirt today. I just can’t resist polka dots:
Did anything test your patience today? Do tell!
Thanks for letting me vent. Believe me, I know that there are bigger world problems.
Thanks for stopping by!
