Many things are not.
Sometimes you pay a hefty price.
And other things.
Right now, I am obsessed with the show Vikings. I am striving to be Lagertha. She is so cool, even peasants want to be her. I think she was much more wise than me. But she does have trouble picking good men in her life. That part was like me. I've finally gotten wise. The other stuff...I can be a warrior or a legend in my own mind. I can dress like her. But...I'm sure she would not have gone through life making the mistakes I have.
|Why not? Aspire to be Lagertha. Arr. SKOL!|
Yesterday started out with a bang and ended with a kaboom.
I was reconciling my checking account when I found a huge ACH withdrawal that I did not authorize.
I called the number up and spoke to a very nice customer service representative who spoke perfect English. I was really impressed. We could communicate and she could understand my problems.
To preface, I had ordered some facial products for my daughter because of her acne, so they delivered.
So, I did recognize the company's name on my online statement, but did not authorize a new charge.
|Yes, I think I will. Thank you!|
The lady listened to my concern and asked, "Ma'am, this is the first charge of two because you checked the box to try a 30 day money back guarantee of our uplift cream. Did you not like the products?"
"I'm not saying I didn't like your products. I did not authorize a charge."
"Uh. Huh. Ma'am, did you return the cream back to us within 30 days so you would not be charged full price?"
"Uh. I didn't know I had to. I thought it was a free sample for the shipping cost only."
"I'm sorry. No, ma'am. You were given the product for 30 days free. If we didn't hear from you and receive the product back, we charge you two payments. This is the first payment."
"Holy balls. $140?"
"Yes. Ma'am. That is what the product retails for and you were given instructions in the box."
"Wow. Well, I can't afford that. And I don't want any more charges. Can I get my money back? I have to feed three small children and we have no groceries."
"Ok. We can see what we can do for you. Did the products work? I understand you must be having some trouble with lift in your breast area?"
Ok. Hold the horses. This lady was getting personal and inappropriate. WTF?
"Oh. Well, I guess I misunderstood. It shows here you ordered the Uplift Cream. It is for increasing lift in your breast area."
Holy. Fucking. Balls.
What. The Fuck. Have. I. Done.
I was feeling flushed and stupid.
"Uh. Hmm. Ok. Well, how do I stop these charges. Do you need the product back?"
"No. It is too late for the return, but I can stop the second payment and write customer dissatisfaction on here and we will not charge you for the second payment. You will receive your seasonal facial care shipment in April."
"Whoa. I don't want any more shipments to come automatically. I only ordered my daughter a facial kit and she doesn't need any more right now."
"Ok. I will stop all shipments. You should be taken care of. Is there anything else I can do for you?"
"Well. Could the Uplift Cream be used on any other areas other than the breasts?"
"Well, ma'am. I am not recommending it for anything else except what it was formulated to do and sell as. As instructed, it is designed for the breast area. It is formulated to lift, tighten, and plump. "
|If I pull my face back, can you tell I have boob lube on my neck?|
"Ok. Thank you. I think I am OK. Have a nice day."
Fuck. Me. In. The. Ass.
Does this cream make my face look big?
No wonder I have jowls.
Here I thought I was getting fatter and fatter. It is actually the cream. This cream really just lifted my neck skin up to my face according to my theory. I can't believe I am such an idiot. How did I get confused? Am I losing it? Wait. Don't answer that question.
What will I look like in 60 days?
Will I have two perky boobs on my face?
Right now I am fighting bad skin and wrinkles.
They are winning.
It doesn't help that I just gave myself a new set of boobs...on my face.
