Happy Holidays

  12/21/08

Drinking water; Listening to jazz; Feeling sleepy — 10:37 AM

I really don’t have anything to blog about.
I just wanted to get my previous blog off the front page, lol.

All Christmas decorating, purchasing, and other preparations are done.
I am home for winter break, and currently snowed in my house.

My big project is organizing my computer and Internet accounts.
Which is turning out to be much harder than I thought.

I shan’t be posting again until after New Years.

So, as the title says…
Happy Holidays!

 

Screw Finishline!

  12/16/08

In my pajamas; Sitting at my desk; Angry texting my ex-boyfriend– 7:14 AM

[edit]
Both of my old websites are available to register again.
I am so tempted to buy them, lmao.

The Story:
I bought some sneakers from Finishline.com on Dec. 14th with my credit card.
They put the $239.87 hold on my bank account.
At 6:23 AM…
They call asking for the phone number I gave my bank 2 years ago.
Not in the We want your business, and this is a formality voice
Or the English is my second language, but God I’m trying voice.
But in the Inarticulate hood cop interrogating a suspect voice.
I am, obviously, very irritated.
And I don’t mind letting this rent-a-cop know.
I won’t go into the back-and-forth that ensued.
In the end, I got a supervisor (or someone who said he was) to cancel my order.
Then, I called the toll-free number back to make sure it was actually canceled (it was).

The Conclusion:
I will never buy anything from Finishline stores or their website again.
There are too many other options to deal with poor service.
I will buy my overpriced crap elsewhere, thank you.

And now,
I am going back to bed.
