Recently I ordered a top that I really loved; it was a gorgeous purple, with short sleeves and a V-neck. Unfortunately it was made in China. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not mad at China. I know that their sizes are completely different than US ones. Generally the clothes from there are way too small; but this shirt was big enough for me and the Crankee Yankee to wear.
Ok, not a problem. I’ve returned merchandise before, and it’s usually not a big deal. I wrote to the seller and explained the issue and asked for a return; you get the return label online, you print it and then put it on the package containing the item to return, and there you go.
Now the top was priced at $17.00, but the shipping to China was $36 dollars! Like an idiot, I paid for it. All I can say was that my brain must have been out to lunch; I should have just kept the damn thing and used it as a nightgown.
Ah well, it’s just one of those senior moments, I guess. If the same sort of thing ever happens to you, I hope that you will be a lot smarter than I was.
