DP Daily Prompt: I Walk the Line

Have you got a code you live by? What are the principles or set of values you actively apply in your life?

One of the principles I value is treat everyone with love. It is something  priceless and it makes our world a beautiful place.

Secondly tell the truth at any cost, it will be rewarded by our creator.

Third: try to give up the habit of gossiping, you may not realize but it hurts the people we gossip about.

Four : No one is perfect keep that in mind, never ridicule anyone, it will come and bite you some day.

Five: Stay away from jealousy, it is one of those traits that can ruin you as well.

I try to live by these rules and I also remember the phrase ,

” Life is an echo all comes back,

The good, the bad, the true,

So give the world the best you have,

And the best will return to you.”

Friends have a great day!

DP Daily Prompts:Enough is Enough

When was the last time you were ready to throw in the proverbial towel? Did you end up letting go, or decided to fight on anyway?

I had a very bad experience with ‘Sears’ the department store, three months ago I ordered a set of furniture from a picture the Sales lady showed me, it seemed quite attractive.

Three weeks later it was delivered to us, I was extremely disturbed to see it, it did not look anything like the one in the picture, I went to the store, to let them know I wanted to return it, the sales lady was off that day, the gentleman told me I had to go back on the day the lady was working.

Monday morning I went ,got the attention of the lady and told her I want to return the furniture because it was not the same one I ordered. She started talking about other sets on the floor, and would I be interested. I said I wanted my money refunded first then I’ll decide. I wasn’t sure if I told her I won’t buy it from them,what her reaction may be, she might refuse to take it back and I’d be stuck with a hideous looking furniture.

After contacting my credit card company several times I managed to get my money back, after two months.

This taught me a much needed lesson, I should not order anything by looking at a picture and the customer service in Sears is terrible, once you buy something from them, they trap you, they try to convince you their stuff is the best.I had to keep my cool until my money was refunded. I know now I must never buy anything from them.

I bought my furniture from a different store, they are the best, they never question or convince you to buy something if you are not interested!

365 days Writing Prompt: Fight or Flight

When faced with confrontation, do you head for the hills or walk straight in? Was there ever a time you wished you’d had the opposite reaction?

In life we as humans face a lot of confrontations, sometimes I walk straight in, other times I try to ignore them.

Once I bought a shop vac and brought it home, when my daughter tried to put it together she noticed a part was missing, without that part the equipment was useless.

Next day I took it to customer service, the lady looked at it and said, “I’m sorry you cannot return those.”

Without asking me why I brought it back she gave me a reply which I wasn’t ready to hear. I wasn’t going to head for the hills, I took the confrontation approach, “What do you mean you wouldn’t take it back,” I said.

She said, “customers buy these take them home, use it and bring it back, our policy is not take them back.”

I was not pleased, I replied, “look you should ask the question why I brought it back and you shouldn’t assume all the customers are the same.”

She was ready to listen, I showed her there was a part missing, I could not use it without the part. I returned the shop vac and came home.
