One Bad Apple...


A few months ago a couple of great gals held a gift swap. These ladies are super fun!! And the story I’m about to tell you has nothing to do with them.
I was so excited! Who wouldn’t be? To get stuff in the mail?? Great Fun!!
I was just as excited to send my gifts to my swap partner. I had bought a universal scarf… leopard print… and I made her a tote bag to match! This lady would be stylin’ and profilin’! I added m&m’s to the box along with nail polish and my favorite lip balm.
I know I went over the set amount of the gift swap but I wanted to do this woman right!
And I trotted my happyass down the to Post Office to ship it out.
And I waited.
and waited.
and waited.
and do you know that the woman wearin’ my leopard print scarf and carryin’ my tote bag NEVER SENT ME A FREAKIN’ THING!!!!
I am curious to know what you kids think about that.
The ladies that held the swap made it up to me, like I said, they are great gals.
Worst of all, This one stupid and selfish woman has ruined a good thing.

Thanks for Nothing!!

Whaaaaaat. That sucks! Did she ever thank you for your (really awesome) giftie? Has anyone heard from this lady? Very weird to join a gift swap and forget the swap part. Anyway, props to you for putting together a really cool gift!

that's awful i hope who ever ran the swap has blacklisted her so she can't join future swap so wrong. next swap i want you as my partner. sorry this happen to you.

I totally know how you feel!
I participated in a swap this July and I found some cool stuff, put it all in a package, brought it to the post office....and waited, waited, waited. I got one message and my "partner" said that she is busy and would run a little late. I waited and waited and waited. And never heard back from her again. I wrote her a couple of emails and she never responded. That was so disappointing and I am pretty sure I won't participate in another swap anytime soon.
I am so sorry that the same happened to you! It's really sad!

Ahhh, the bad swap partner... I've only taken part in 2 swaps (it's hard to find them available to Canadians, unfortunately) - one of them was a huge success, but the other I felt a little jipped. At least I got something, though! That sucks. I don't bother entering swaps that are available to me anymore because of that possibility...

Becca said...

I am so sorry to hear this! Stupid people have to ruin the good things! You know that I love to do swaps! I rock your bags!

It's not fair, if someone does something like this. I wonder when this is the case if the person came up short on money and was all embarrassed. It takes a lot of courage to own up to your shortcoming instead of just things slide and allow someone to feel horrible. Oh well, at least your friend helped to make you feel better and that's always a good thing!

I hate when people don't follow through!

Lin said...

Oh, hell no! There's just no excuse for being a bad swap partner. None. I'm glad the host(s) did something to make up for it out of the kindness of their hearts but the point is that they wouldnt have had to if that slacker wouldve done what she promised. Did she even contact you to apologize or make up an excuse?

Sorry this happened to you hon. I'm tough when it comes to people ripping other people off so I totally wouldve called her shit out on the blog.

Gina said...

That totally stinks. She should be banned. I can imagine your excitement for her to receive your awesome gift. Loser (I shouldn't say that because I don't know her but it's the way I'm feeling for her on your behalf)

TMW Hickman said...

Man, that sucks! It's not as if she wasn't aware of the rules of the swap, so she can't plead ignorance! Some people are just downright rude and selfish.

Urban Earthworm said...

That is exactly why I don't join swaps. I would be that woman, and I know better than to do that to people. I just really SUCK at getting things in the mail. I don't know what it is...

I would be ticked, but I'm working on this whole golden rule thing, so I'd have to give her the benefit of the doubt - which doesn't mean I'd ever agree to swap with her again...

gretchen said...

What a big drag! Has anybody spoken to this loser woman? What does she have to say for herself? I want to know! Unless she's been in the hospital or something, I say there's no excuse.

Impulsive Addict said...

I wonder who you could be talking about! lol

SHE WAS A LOUSY PARTNER! I'm so sorry that I paired you up with her. I've learned from my mistakes and hopefully that won't ever happen again. I never visit her blog (nor she mine) but I DO see her leave comments on a mutual friends blog on occasion. Don't worry--I warned that friend about her! Dumb bitch. Sorry. That's how I feel.
