(Amanda, I love you, but I have to complain about the rude service I received from the bridal store)
Because my schedule has been so hectic, I decided to call the bridal store where Amanda's bridesmaid dresses are and have my dress shipped. Now, shipping, UPS, with insurance from Buford to my house is $8.48 for 10 lbs. I highly doubt the dress is 10 lbs, but I thought I'd take the liberty of adding weight. A box? Say, $5 for the box and shipping materials. That equals $13.48.
I tried calling the bridal store (when I could.....here at work) yesterday. It rang and rang and rang...no one answered so I'm assuming they were on the other line (called from cell and work phone).
I called this morning at 10:01 am....it rang and rang and rang (no answering service picking up like it did when I called at 9:32). I wait, and I call just now (10:30am), and it rings six times before someone answers.
I ask them about shipping out my dress. The woman was NOT friendly, "Uh - well are the dresses IN yet?"
"We don't have a dress for that name."
"Is it under the bride's name?"
"Shipping is $37.10 via UPS. You send us a check, and we send the dress once it clears."
"You can't do a UPS Collect."
"We only accept checks or money orders. It's $37.10."
"Okay, thanks. I'll get that out to you today......UPS OVERNIGHT."
She hangs up.
Don't get me wrong, Amanda told us it was $37 and change, but why?
And why so rude? How do I know that you have to call and tell them the bride's name...not the person whose dress it is? Geez Louise.
Damn good thing I have a seamstress on-hand with a rapid turn-around! :)
