Shit that allows lawyers to charge $400 an hour.
Two weeks ago Mrs. C ordered a water filter for our refrigerator. We have not received any filters. The check for the filters was cashed in two days.
Mrs. C called to find what was holding up the delivery. Someone from Michigan answered.
“The shipment should be going out in a day or two; shipment can take three to four weeks.”
“But you cashed the check in two days.”
Mrs. C was disconnected. Mrs. C called back. Someone from Tennessee answered.
“I’m trying to find out when my filters will be delivered.”
“They should go out in a day or two; shipment can take from three to four weeks.”
“Even though the check is cashed immediately?”
“Well I wish I knew that, I would have bought one at the store.” (These filters are not cheap BTW.)
“It is stated on the order form that delivery may take three to four weeks, didn’t you read the form?”
“Where, on the back in tiny print?” Mrs. C asked sarcastically.
I guess we will have to just buy bottled water for a while.
Personally I think they just wait till you call and complain and then they put the order through.
I hate that fine print shit!
