I think I have mentioned before that my mother is an avid online shopper, not with Amazon like me, she shops for clothes. She was always extremely slim when she was younger but now she is what you would call an apple shape. Not that I would tell her that 😳 I’m not that stupid. 🙄 Last week we had this telephone conversation.
Mum: Christine (my older sister) was showing me two dresses that she was going to order online from ******
Me: Oh, were they nice?
Mum: They looked alright, I used to order stuff from them until they started making stuff in smaller sizes
Me: Oh so it wasn’t you that put weight on?
Mum: (ignoring my comment). I told Christine that I would have a look for something myself and order her stuff on my account
Me: What did she say?
Mum: She was pleased because that way her husband won’t see she is buying yet more stuff.
Me: She is always buying stuff, then she says she can’t afford to retire!
Mum: hmm, anyway I’ve ordered a couple of blouses, a skirt and her two dresses and it came to £123
Me: That’s a lot 😉
Mum: hmm, they are coming on Saturday, our Christine is going to the caravan until Monday so she will have to wait for hers.
I never gave it another thought until Saturday when my mum rang me and said:
Mum: You know that stuff I ordered online for Christine and me.
Me: Yes, has it come?
Mum: Oh yes its come
Mum: I’ve never seen anything like it, rubbish, absolute rubbish!
Me: Well, what a surprise 🙄
Mum: I thought they might have got some new stuff in and improved, anyway I’ve rung them up and told them to send someone to pick it up on Monday
Me: What about Christine’s dresses, she is not home until Monday night.?
Mum: They were rubbish I didn’t even bother opening them
Me: Actually gasping, I think you should let her see them first mum.
Mum: It’s too late , I’ve taped everything up and it’s all going back. The man on the phone said: ” can I ask why you’re sending them back”
Me: knowing what was coming said, “and you said”?
Mum: I said because they are bloody rubbish, like tissue paper and I told him that they needed to get some better material AND that I will never be ordering from them again.
Me: I bet he loved you.
Mum: I’m not bothered if he loved me or not, he needed telling
Me: He probably just works in a call centre mother he won’t order in the material
Mum: Well he can pass it on to his boss 😠
Me: I can’t believe you are sending the stuff back without even letting Christine see what she ordered.
Mum: Well I am. They weren’t even bright coloured they looked wishy washy
Mum: Well you’ve shocked me.
Mum: Aye, and it shocked me when I opened the parcel 😤
Me: Poor Christine 🙁
Mum: Poor nothing, I’ve done her a favour, if she wants to see them she will have to order them to go to her house next time. It was my £123 and it is going back. It’s going to cost me £3.99 to get the rubbish sent back. That is the LAST time I’m ordering anything from them.
Me: I seem to remember you saying that last time.
Mum: hmm, now I’m going, my dinners ready.
