I hate having to do this, but I’ve gotten no resolution from the company, Dancing Dingo. I’ve tried. They may not even be in business any longer. Below is a post I made on Facebook.
The perils of doing business…
99.999 percent of my transactions with companies doing business online (and the traditional mail-order variety) go without a hitch.
However, this one didn’t.
My wife uses some products from Dancing Dingo. She really likes them. Up until April 17, when she placed an order for 2 products. This stuff is expensive, by the way.
After several weeks of waiting, with no shipment ever arriving, we sent an email to the company. They responded fairly promptly (within a day, totally acceptable).
They explained why the shipment never went out. It basically exposed a flaw in their system, but, okay, people make mistakes (that’s why you make systems that mitigate that potential).
A couple weeks go by. Still nothing. We inquired again. We got an automated tracking email saying the package had just been sent out. Fine. Crummy customer service, but still…
A week went by and we received shipment. However, there were 2 things wrong with it.
One item was missing entirely and the other had been replaced with the wrong item.
This had happened once before but we wrote it off then as an anomaly.
We emailed back. No reply. I called. Left a voice message. No reply to date. I finally filed a PayPal dispute. I think I waited too long (I gave them too long to make things right)…
Now, I go to their Facebook page, find their number, and it’s been disconnected.
Dammit, we’ll never see that money again.
Don’t bother doing business with these folks. They’re either out of business or will be soon. Save your money.
Like I said, I hate doing this, and it may fall on deaf ears anyway (they either are out of business, don’t give a shit, or don’t have anybody monitoring social media and/or mentions of their company name), but it’s about my only recourse at this point in time.
I really want to finish my business with these guys. Right now, they have my money and I don’t have anything in return. And that is complete BS.
Black Friday didn’t start out as a positive for retailers…not that it is now, either.
Beginning in the nineteen-thirties, thousands of fans thronged Philadelphia’s Municipal Stadium for the Army-Navy football game. As festive as the mood was inside the stadium, it wasn’t nearly so cheerful for the Philadelphia police officers who had to herd the crowds. The game was frequently held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and just as visiting fans were showing up the day before, holiday shoppers also would descend on downtown. On those Fridays after Thanksgiving, the late Joseph P. Barrett, a longtime reporter for the Philadelphia Bulletin, recalled, even members of the police band were called upon to direct traffic. The cops nicknamed the day of gridlock Black Friday, and soon others started to do the same.
Keepin’ it real, dawg:
WASHINGTON The Borowitz Report—Faced with a barrage of new questions about the Affordable Care Act, President Obama cut short a White House press conference today, telling the stunned press corps, “You know what? Everybody can keep their damn insurance.”
Janet Yellen and her Senate confirmation hearing:
Corker being so helpful? It turns out that, over the summer, Yellen had visited him in his office, giving him a chance to expound his views and offering up some of hers in return. Wrapping up his questions, Corker thanked the witness for her openness and candor, and also “for giving the same answers now that you gave in the office.”
The first woman to run the Fed isn’t just a highly trained economist and a good communicator; evidently, she’s also a pretty savvy politician.
If you didn’t see this yet Home Depot’s Social Media Agency, and possibly internal workers decided to promote College Football Gameday with what they thought was a funny Tweet.
What ever happened with this? Did President Obama release his records? I don’t remember…
“The Celebrity Apprentice” star recently promised to contribute $5 million to a charity of Obamas choice if the president released his college and passport records.
From Bruce Bartlett’s Facebook page (click here if you’re on Facebook):
Like I keep saying, libertarians are just right wing Republicans embarrassed to call themselves Republicans.
How fucking true is that! Let’s start calling them LINOS: Libertarians In Name Only
He added that he hoped that the study would spark a conversation “about the root cause of mass shootings: people who recklessly show up at places where they could be shot at.”
The nut doesn’t fall far from the tree, nor does the liar. #StupidMonkey
What we are going to do from here forward, if it will make people leave me the hell alone, is we’re going to do them like college papers,” he (Rand Paul) said Tuesday. “We’re going to try to put out footnotes. We’re going to have them available. If people want to request the footnoted version, we’re going to have it available.
In case you forgot, Rand’s father, Ron Paul, wrote a bunch of newsletters decades ago where he apparently came across as a racist.
Except he said that somebody else wrote those newsletters. Ah, good, Ron Paul is not a plagiarist. He’s a racist. BIG DIFFERENCE.
In THIS case, Rand Paul didn’t claim that others wrote his material. He took full credit for writing stuff that other people apparently wrote, too (fucking A, “We wrote that shit down simul-fucking-taneously! It’s a miracle.”).
You can’t make this shit up. Okay, I made that last part up.
An interesting article by Bruce Bartlett where he shows how the tea party is weakening, losing steam. I like to call tea party members #StupidMonkeys.
Lots of quotes and information from prominent conservatives bucking the tea party.
Worth a read!
