Today, a delivery man (who brought my ASOS oder), stole my mothers' handbag.
So she took care of all the "reparation" part, I'd say: making sure no one could use her credit card and cell phone.
And of course I took care of the complaint to the delivery company.
I first had a woman telling me the center would contact me in the 24 hours about it. And a few hours later, a man of that company called me, and I clearly understood what his job really was...
I'm telling you this because trust me, you're gonna encouter this kind of assholes in your life and you better be prepared. This guy, though, wasn't prepared for ME. That's what I want for you.
He started questionning my complaint , trying to make me doubt my own statement, saying it sounded really weird and unlikely.
To that I answered: It's ot my place to judge wether or not it's weird, I'm just telling you what happened.
Then he changed tactics, trying to make me feel guilty and afraid: it was a very serious accusation, etc..
To which I answered: Absolutely, it's indeed serious. I am very serious.
This guy had obviously no idea who Blume Shullman was, and he finally was forced to say: okay, the center will contact you soon. He was the filter between customer service and the real thing. He was paid to discourage some poeple to go all the way through this unpleasant procedure that is a complaint for theft.
Then another guy called me telling me he believed me but it was not his responsability and he would tell the guy responsible for this particular delivery guy to call me. Needless to say, I was starting to lose patience!
Then the guy responsible for the delivery guy called me, very suspicious in his tone like the first, and insisted on details, trying to make me crack up and find something to reproach me. But I knew I had to be firm, so stayed strong.
We gave his number to the police (cause that was all we had ) and told them the whole story.
This guy must call me tomorrow and I think the police will try to get to the bottom of it?
My nerves are wracked.
I feel like I have the police on the phone a little bit too often lately.
Fun Fact: The clothes don't even fit because of my weight loss, haha!
But remember: poeple will always try to turn your accusations against you so you need to stay strong, rational and infexible in these situations. Or you will lose your pride alongside your goods.
