I’m Just Sayin’ Wednesday – The Potential March 31, 2010

WARNING: This post is wicked shmoopy. If you don’t want to read that kind of crap go here.

I met a boy.

For those who follow me on twitter , I’ve been referring to him as “The Potential.”

I call him that because we haven’t made anything official even though we hold hands and kiss and talk everyday and all that stupid dating crap.

The Potential is your quintessential “good guy” and honestly,  general cares about me.

He makes me feel safe and beautiful – things past boys have rarely ever made me feel.

…and he has a motorcycle. (C’mon, guys. You didn’t think I’d really fall for Beaver Cleaver did you?)

It took me months to even let myself like this boy.

Now? He’s has turned me into a complete stupid, grinning cheese-ball.

The Potential may be moving across the state for a job in a couple months.

I’m trying to be supportive and I tell him what a great opportunity it is and that he should give it a chance if it is offered to him.

But down inside? Deep down? Under a rock? I’m screaming, “Don’t you dare leave me after you let me fall for your goofy ass!”

I’m being selfish, I know.

But I don’t care.

Dating sucks, yo.

I’m just sayin’.

...literally.

For those of you who don’t know – I am an equipment manager for a D1 collegiate athletic program.

This means I care for all the gear and equipment for the sports I have been assigned.

This weekend, three of my teams had competitions.

That means today I have three teams worth of laundry to wash, dry, and return.

“Just how much laundry is that, Jeney?”

Well, let me tell you…

Sport One (13 athletes)

  • 2 sets of jerseys
  • 2 sets of bottoms
  • 3 different sets of warm-up tops
  • 1 set of warm-up suits
  • 1 set of t-shirts
  • 1 set of hooded sweatshirts
  • 1 set of winter jackets
  • 4 sets of socks
  • 2 sets of under armor
  • practice gear

Sport Two (21 athletes)

  • 2 sets of jerseys
  • 2 sets of bottoms
  • 1 set of fleece tops
  • 1 set of warm-up suits
  • 2 sets of socks
  • 2 sets of under armor

Sport Three (13 athletes)

  • 3 sets of jerseys
  • 2 sets of bottoms
  • 2 different sets of warm up tops
  • 1 set of warm-up suits
  • 4 sets of socks
  • 2 sets of knee pads
  • practice gear

This doesn’t include the towels and trainer’s gear I need to do, too.

Or the travel bags I need to pack away.

When I get married and have kids? They can do their own god damn laundry.

So a while back I read a blog post about this exquisite little thing.

I think it might have been from Shine. Or maybe it was Veg Ass. Perhaps Carissa? I don’t remember and I’M SORRY!

Anyapologies, I decided to order said wine glass for a certain wine-loving friend of mine who has a birthday coming up.* I added it to my virtual shopping cart, checked out, gave Amazon.com my pretty little credit card number and waited.

And waited.

And waited.

For about a week and a half.

Don’t get all pissy with me! I understand they tell you to wait seven to ten business days… but I received an e-mail the DAY AFTER I gave them my pretty little credit card number that the item was shipped. And I still waited all ten days to receive it. Dirty liars.

When I did receive my package this past Friday, there were absolutely no labels, marks, or any kind of indication whatsoever that the contents were fragile. So when I carefully took the box out of my mailman’s hand, it kind of sounded like this.

While trying to keep my raging Hulk-like temper under control, I carefully opened the poorly wrapped and labeled box. Now, in all fairness, I would have been somewhat understanding it something like this greeted my eye:

I mean, it IS glass and no one warned the disgruntled postmen and women that the innards of said mailing box was fra-gee-lay. But, ladies and gentlemen, My Extra Large wine glass looked like this:

There were tiny, sharp, merciless bits of glass everywhere. It was like some sort of sick confetti out of a Saw movie.

I did some research and discovered that a company called Cashco1000, Inc. were the culprits in my destroyed wine glass debacle. I also discovered that Cashco1000, Inc. only has customer service hours from 9:00am – 2:00pm Monday through Friday.

Aside from the fact that their company name sounds like one of those “COngratulaTIONs! You jus won $1,000,000,000 dllars! Send us you’re social security number, left arm, and firs bourne son to receeve your gift!” scams, they apparently feel that no one needs their services after lunchtime.

Cue the strongly worded e-mail:

To whom it may concern,

I received my product in the mail today and I am thoroughly disappointed in the state it came to me in.

The glass is not just broken or cracked, it is shattered beyond any reason.

The packaging that the glass came in did not have any indication that the product was fragile and I do not see why this was neglected. I am sure this failure to properly label the package’s contents had something to do with the absurd amount of damage to the product.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone from your company would contact me in regard to having the glass replaced or my money refunded.

Thank you.

This morning I received this e-mail:

Hello,

I am very sorry about you receiving a damaged product. We are sending you a new toilet paper holder. You will be receiving an email with an invoice and a tracking number. Please discard of the defective item once the new one is received. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Thank you for your patience. If I can assist you in any other way please contact me at the number below.

Thank you,

Um… I DIDN’T ORDER A TOILET PAPER ROLL! Who in their right mind would even order a toilet paper roll that has to potential to shatter?! There are way too many awful, unthinkable things that could go wrong with that…

Dumbass**,

I did not order a toilet paper holder. Toilet paper holders do not shatter.

I ordered an Extra Large sized wine glass from DCI.

Please do not send me a toilet paper holder.

Regards,
Jeney Anderson

I get two points on that one for being a smart ass.

Their Reply?

Hello Jeney,

I’m sorry about the previous email I sent before fully changing the email. My appologies.I am very sorry about you receiving a damaged product. We are sending you a new XL Jumbo GIANT WINE GLASS. I have talked with the packer and will be sure to mark this one fragile. You will be receiving an email with an invoice and a tracking number. Please discard of the defective item once the new one is received. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Thank you for your patience. If I can assist you in any other way please contact me at the number below.

No number below? Still using half of your “stock e-mail”? Proving that you have to write this e-mail often enough that you need a “stock e-mail’? That’s three more points for me!

So the whole situation has been resolved and I will be getting my new wine glass in the next seven to ten business days. All is well in Jeney world.

Then Cashco1000, Inc. sends me this gem:

Hello,

Thank you for emailing us! We are out of the office for the weekend. We will address your questions/concerns on Monday.

Have a great weekend.

Well, fuck you very much, Cashco1000, Inc.
