Tired of my son clomping into the house in his workboots and tracking snow and mud throughout, I ordered him a pair of slippers similar to the ones shown which my husband wears. I figured he could switch into them in the laundry room when he comes in, as I do with my Crocs. Because I had a bunch of discount coupons and because it was on sale, I ordered a final place setting of Fiestaware along with the slippers.
The Fiestaware arrived in a timely fashion, but no slippers. After a few more days' wait, I emailed customer service, which auto-responded that someone would contact me within 24 hours. Lo and behold, the package arrived the next day, before I even heard back. I hadn't told John about the slippers, and as he was home I just carried in the box and said, "You can open this, I got you some slippers", and went back to making supper. A few minutes later a confused voice said, "Mom, these aren't slippers..."
But they were a pair of size 6 1/2 faux snakeskin high heels!
Literally minutes after the shoes arrived, I recieved the promised email from customer service assuring me that the slippers would arrive the following day. I e'd back that the package had arrived, and explained the mix-up, and that I'd like to return the heels and wait for the slippers. The friendly and apologetic rep said that I would be credited for the slippers, but they could not take back the high heels- I could keep them or do what I would with them. Well, since neither K nor I could squeeze into them even if we wore heels, I will just donate them, which will make some girl very happy.
Apparently the slippers were not in stock anymore from this store which will remain anonymous (I am otherwise a very satisfied custoer), so I ended up ordering from L.L. Bean instead. Happy ending- they arrived this evening, and J's feet are now encased in their comfy-ness, and hopefully my floors will be the cleaner for it.
