A few weeks ago I ordered a few things from ASOS, which has a very cute line called Curve that comes in helpful sizes.
An awesome skirt I wanted was out of stock in my size, so I ordered the next size up, figuring I could take it in a bit if necessary. It was long and black and had a very deep slit up one leg. I had visions of remaking my entire wardrobe around this skirt.
Last week, just as I was starting to wonder where my package had gotten to, ASOS sent me an e-mail notification that my package had been in their NY-area distribution center during Sandy, the apocalyptic s’nor’easter-cane. Which was flooded. They were sending everything back to the main warehouse for inspection. I was disappointed, but tried to hold onto hope.
Then I got another e-mail informing me that my package was damaged beyond saving.
And rather than just reship the order, they had cancelled it.
They gave me a $20 off coupon if I wanted to reorder, but everything had been on sale, and stock was running low. What were the chances that the items I wanted would still be available?
I was so bummed. For
Not only were they still available, but the skirt was back in stock in the correct size!
And with the coupon, I got everything I wanted for $20 less.
