I experienced a miracle just now.I am at work. A woman just called because she received a catalog with a promotion code. She called to ask if that could be applied to her last order. I explained that at the time of the order the offer was not valid but would be happy to apply it as a one time courtesy... She then stated, "Oh, I don't want you to break any rules, please don't worry about it." She then went on merrily to place a new order.She didn't want to break any rules... what a gem. I happily took her order, applied the new discount promo AND waived her shipping just for fun! I was happy to do it. She was so nice and not pushy or bitchy. What a relief and so rare in what I experience on a day to day basis. Sad but true.To that woman in SC- thank you! Thank you for giving me a very bright spot in a very long and gloomy week! Happy Holidays! REALLY, I mean it.
My mother said I always did things the hard way... she said I needed to learn to take the lemons life served up and make lemonade. I guess I am a lemonade maker. There are days when I look for someone with vodka, and then we just have a party, there are days when actually hucking the lemons is a better choice and then there are the glorious days when sitting down and having a nice, refreshing lemonade is just the thing.
