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!

DP Daily Prompts: Ready, Set, Done

As it’s been a while since our last free write… set a time for ten minutes. Write without pause( and no edits) until you’re out of time. Then publish what you have( it’s your call whether or not to give the post a once-over).

Hazrat Bulleh Shah said “you read to become all knowing, but you never read yourself.”

Since I read this -post sent to me by my friend Robert, I spent a lot of time thinking, have I ever read myself, sometimes I do .whenever someone is nasty I wonder was I a bad person, because in my mind people just are not mean to you there must be a reason. I thought and thought but could not find anything I did. Isn’t this reading yourself or is there something deeper and I’m overlooking it.

Folks it is a swell idea to read yourself you might not do some of the things that are not good.I bought some furniture by looking at a picture, when it came I did not like it, I wanted to return it immediately but the sales lady kept ignoring me, now I think if she read herself she’d know it’s not a good idea to behave badly with your customers, you’d find no one wants to buy anything from you.

Is this making sense is this how we read ourselves?

I have since I read that post made an attempt to read me, I’m not sure of my success but I’ve definitely learned something from Hazrat Bulleh Shah!

DP Daily Prompt: Calling Uncle Bob

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

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.

DP Daily Prompt: Howl at the Moon

“Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” Allen Ginsberg

Do you follow Ginsberg’s advice– in your writing and/or in your every day life?

If I follow my inner moonlight including don’t hide the madness  as suggested by Ginsberg, I cannot be sure how people who see me will think. Most of the time I try to hide that inner madness to avoid being called a lunatic. I saw some people who do not hesitate to show their madness and are branded by society to stay away from such a person.

Certain amount of inner madness if controlled can benefit some, others will turn their back and still others will give the evil look.

When we are in public lot of things happen we do not like, but we take a deep breath and move on. It happened yesterday to me I went to see the sales lady from whom I bought the furniture, it was not the right one so I returned it, they received the furniture five days ago but as of yesterday I wasn’t given the refund.

I went to the store and found out she was on her lunch break for an hour, I walked around to see how I could spend my time for that hour, while walking I saw her coming, she quickly hid her face with a piece of paper, I stopped and called her name, she behaved normally, she didn’t know I had seen her trying to hide her face. If I had used my inner madness in that mall I knew it wouldn’t gain any friends for me instead I spoke to her as if nothing out of the ordinary had taken place.

It was decision time for me,I made up my mind not to buy anything from her, this I thought was the best way to deal with my inner madness.
