Rip Off Rant

Ya know what I hate? When catalogs and websites portray some of their products better then they really are.... I am a little aggravated about this.

I have been doing a bit of online shopping because I'm getting some great deals, actually a lot better then in the stores. And during the holiday season tons of stores and catalogs offer free shipping which I love!!

What I don't love is the fact that sometimes you see something online and it looks big and beautiful and when you order it you expect to receive the the big and beautiful item.

But that's not the case over here at my house. I got home from work yesterday happy to see to packages sitting on the front steps. I opened the 1st package and was quite happy with the gift I had ordered for Brian's sister... I wasn't so happy with the other box I opened (and I can't really say what it is just incase this person is reading my blog, lol)... I was so disappointed to see the the item was small, less brillant in color, and still cost the same as the big, beautiful object online.... Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice...never gonna happen!!!

that's why you have to read the fine print that gives dimensions and such... got to love camera magic... NOT!

I'm so sorry! I don't like being mislead like that either! I do love shopping online- great deals with free shipping = happy me! And bonus, I get to do it in my pj's and no one can see or hear my kids running around screaming like a wild child! :)

I have had that
happen to me.
I get sad.

Online shopping is
such a gamble.
(Depending on product)

I hate when things
aren't what you're

When I send myself some online shopping, I forget about the purchases and then when I see the packages on my front door it's like sending myself a christmas present that I really wanted.:) Sorry that you were misled.

That's happened to me before too. That's why I usually buy something online from a store that is close to me so I can return it.
