The problem with on-line purchases

A couple of weeks ago I was driving somewhere with my friend Abby and she’d brought along a Domino Magazine for the ride. She asked me if I’d ever heard of it, and I informed her that I, in fact, was the one who had ordered her subscription as a housewarming gift last year, but I just assumed she never received it because I never heard a word about it. She had no idea I was the one who sent it to her… she just thought the magazine company had sent her some as a freebie to try it out. She felt bad, because she had no idea I was the one who had sent it to her, and I felt bad because I didn’t make it clear that I was doing this for her, and I didn’t want her to think I didn’t get her ANYTHING for her housewarming.

The problem is, I sent this magazine to three people last year (last year was a big year for home purchases among my friends, and the magazine was new and offering super cheap subscription deals). So to anyone who mysteriously receives Domino, it’s probably from me. 🙂

Point being……….. now the same thing has happened to ME! Yesterday I received 2 super cute t-shirts with no return address info (they’re from, and the receipt didn’t list the buyer’s name). Why do companies do this?? I was going to email the company today, but I forgot the order # at home, so instead I’ve been sending my friends cryptic emails like, “Did you send me some shirts?” but so far no one has fessed up. So, I ask ………. do these look familiar?

    Are you sure it wasn’t Tim? They seem like very specific t’s.

    And remember when you sent the boys stationary and kept asking if we’d gotten anything, and I said no because I think for some reason they were a freebie too? Yes, this is an issue. Except when someone WANTS to be anonymous.
