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.

365 Writing Prompts: Pat on the back

Tell someone you’re proud of, how proud you are.

It is difficult to describe just how proud I am of you. Your remarkable dedication to your family, your work  and the students you teach is matchless.

You meet deadlines after deadlines with such calmness, makes me think you cannot belong to an ordinary class of human beings.

When God created you He knew why He sent you down among us, He equipped you with tolerance for the people you’ll come into contact with, brilliance, to deal with humans like us who lack the gift you possess to help us understand the complexities of life  that we face from day to day.

I needed to know someone like you to realize there are good people like you who care and that not everyone is unreliable. I am truly thankful to know you!
