This afternoon—with the kids safely at school and my husband at the office—I decided to wrap some Christmas gifts. I had the Christmas music going in the background, all the “Santa” wrapping paper ready, tags, etc—you get the idea.
After wrapping most of the kids gifts, I decided to wrap my husband’s presents. I sat pondering whether I should keep the Detroit Piston’s sweatshirt I ordered from the NBA store, un-opened in its shipping box, or to put it in a shirt box that was smaller. I decided to put it in the shirt box and then opened the shipping box.
What is this?!
Here’s what I ordered…
Here’s what I saw when I opened the box…
Apparently, the NBA store is somehow affiliated with the NHL store—mind you you have to go to a separate website to order the product above. Not only is it the wrong sport, the wrong color and the wrong state, but it’s a women’s sweatshirt.
On top of everything, I had to call the NBA store twice because the first service rep gave me very inaccurate information and neglected to tell me that when I did return the product, I wouldn’t automatically get the correct item.
After speaking with a very nice service rep the second time, she got me straightened out, but what a hassle!!!
I’m hoping the right shirt will arrive by Christmas.
Has this happened to you before? Tell me your best mail-order snafu.
