DP Daily Prompt: Calling Uncle Bob

Have you ever faced a difficult situation when you had to choose between sorting it out yourself, or asking someone else for an easy fix? What did you choose— and would you make the same choice today?

Yes I faced a difficult situation a few months ago. I was looking for some furniture, I went to a furniture store in the mall to look around. The lady at the store showed me a picture, it looked beautiful I ordered it and paid the whole amount the same day.

When it was delivered I noticed the furniture set   was  different from the one she showed me, I went back to the sales representative and asked her to make arrangements to take the set  out of my house, she took another few days to get it removed.

I went back to her and asked for the refund, she told me she had already refunded the money.Since she did not give me a receipt I wasn’t sure the money was really refunded.  I had used my credit card to pay, I called the credit card company  to find out  if the money was refunded , they checked a few times and they told me it was not repaid  yet.

Finally after two months the company reimbursed me, I was so annoyed I made up my mind never to buy anything from them.They are unreliable and their staff is incompetent.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this experience during which you made it through a difficult experience. It is nice that we are granted qualities to cope with such challenges in life.

    All good wishes,


    • It was lot stressful than I thought it would be, the outcome was good, I got my money back and found out which company to avoid when I want to buy furniture.Thank you Robert.

    • I did sort it out partly, the problem they were not refunding my money which
      was the reason I sought help from the credit card company, because I used the credit card to pay them.
      I also paid my bill, in a way I was stuck.

  2. I am glad to know that it got sorted out in the end, but one can imagine the distress and irritation caused in the process 😦
