Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't mind paying at all. But paying on what I PAID not what you deem it to be worth. If I get a gift bag from Barneys or Saks, they are not adding the $200 "value" of the bag to my order! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ChristalM I agree! GWP should never be included in the total value. Actually, I have not come across any other company which does that, other than Colourpop. Definitely make me not want to order from them.

@Pollu

@greenteafueled @sydtomato

 

Same happened to me! They over inflated my value by $20 Canadian! Never again. I didn't want the stupid feebies anyway especially if they are going to inflated the value of the package for them. Never again with colourpop. Oh and they left out one item from my order Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ChristalM So sorry to hear that Smiley Sad

Did Colourpop at least send out a replacement for the missing item?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Pollu Nope! They don't seem to care.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Wow I'm shocked by that! I once made an order and it said it was delivered but I did not get it.  I think either my mailman mixed up the addresses since it was Christmas time and there are usually more packages or it was stolen from my porch.  I contacted Colourpop and they sent out a brand new order.

@ChristalM

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ChristalM That's horrible! Smiley SadYou should try contacting them on their social media. Usually, companies seem to respond better on social media.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Pollu Sadly I did with no response. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ChristalM Hope they get back to you. This is not fair. Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I wonder if the universe is trying to send me a signal that I should just stop ordering stuff online.

January isn't even over and I already got a few "messages" -wrong item, damaged stuff, etc... But the cake goes to a pair of Wolford tights from Nordies. I mean, I received "a package of Wolfords". I could see from outside something was off, but never in a million years I expected what I found:

what did they send me

 

Used stockings!, and it doesn't even match! Smiley Surprised

I think it may have been shipped from a store and some criminal costumer was responsible for this. Now you tell me, how does a person sound when telling a story like this over the phone to CS :/ Maybe I should just stop online shopping...

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yikes! I am truly sorry that this happened to you! I originally suggested you order your Wolford's through Nordies because I actually work for Nordstrom and I know we (my location) have a very good stock and selection of Wolford's. I did not anticipate for someone to send you a used pair of tights, however. Again, I am sorry and if this were to ever happen again (god forbid) please send me a DM so I can get it straightened out for you! I am a service experience specialist so it is my job to make things right for the customer. I am glad that CS is sending you a new pair though! Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@gonerogue Thanks! I was able to find one on sale online. Usually it's hard to find a Medium on sale because it's probably the most popular size, let alone on the right color. But I was lucky, or so I thought. But I don't blame Nordies on this one. Last year Bloomingdales sent me a box of 3 CK tights, instead of just one, and I was more upset at them for giving me the trouble of having to ship back the 2 extra pairs Smiley Very Happy Thank you for offering to help, it's very kind. Hopefully I won't need it.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Omg, I don't know whether to laugh or cry over those stockings. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That is so gross I'm so sorry! Here is a humorous story to hopefully bring a smile to your face: 

My mom refers to panty hose as just hose (a lot of people/family members around here do so I'm not sure if it's a local thing or not). Anyways my mom and dad went to Vegas and while opening the package to get ready for a party my mom realized that the SA sold her the wrong kind of panty hose. She assumed that she was sold the right thing so she just threw it in her suitcase and didn't check until it was time to get dressed. As they were staying in a very nice hotel and had concierge service she called down to the desk as they would be leaving soon for a black tie event and needed the correct item. So when concierge picked up the phone this was how the conversation went 

Spoiler
Spoiler
Concierge desk how may I help you?
Mom: yes I need to locate some hose 
CD: I'm sorry ma'am?!
Mom: yes I need some hose sent to my room 
Spoiler
CD: excuse me?????

Anyways my dad was laughing so hard in the background he was turning beet red and crying. Finally he was able to get out "think about what you're saying" to my mom who was then totally embarrassed. Long story short she got her under garments and the concierge desk had a great laugh.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@niki172 Haha what a cute and funny story. Thanks for sharing! Smiley Happy

 

@DaintyDiva OMFG the kisses! That is too funny!

 

My mom is also very scatterbrained and there are plenty of stories. One is that she'd call the Dunkin Donuts Strawberry 
Coolattas "strawberry daiquiris." Hahaha.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@lmi82 Lol Smiley Very Happy Maybe a Freudian slip? She actually wanted a daiquiri Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@DaintyDiva Haha that has to be it! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@niki172 ROFL Smiley Very Happy That was too funny, thanks for sharing with us Smiley Happy

Moms are funny. My mom likes to finish her phone calls saying "kisses". Mainly she only talks on the phone with family and friends, so it became a habit. Suffice to say that by force of habit she has send "kisses" to complete strangers a couple of times already, only to realize what she did the moment she disconects Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@DaintyDiva at least some strangers got some love Smiley Very Happy

I have so many stories just like that. My mom and grandma have done such scatterbrain things it could fill a book!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh wow that's insane. Nordstrom CS is quite amazing, so I'm sure they'll sort it out for you without any problem, but man.. I'm so sorry to see this mess! Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That is so disgusting the stockings were used and mismatched! I am sorry this happened to you. Smiley Sad
