I've been stiffed and it stinks~or~ up on my SOAPBOX

well, it seems that my swap partner for the 'Fall n Leaves' swap has stiffed me. that sure stinks. I've been working with the Swap coordinator and even she's smokin' mad. Seems that this lady signed up to swap with 3 partners and hasn't sent to anyone. We all made sure to get our packages sent to her on time. oh yeah, she's come up with excuses-"dad in hospital, husband in hospital, packages were in daughters car but she didn't send them, now their mysteriously sent but no one received anything, she can receive emails but she can't post", (oh, but how interesting that she can post to the group and join in two other events in the meantime and also she hasn't had a problem replying to the cooordinator) you know, I can sure inderstand that life happens, but geesh, at least have a little common courtesy and send out a short email saying you've had a family emergency and will not be able to participate. you don't even have to say what has happended because that stuff can be real personal, but jeesh, at least that would have been forgivable and you can understand and let her off the hook. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. ok, I'll climb down off my soapbox now....~~~~~~~

It's people like her that give swapping a bad name! Sorry to hear you've been stiffed - it's very frustrating, I know.

Love your latest Bluette! I took the class too but never made the doll.

I'm so sorry that happened! As Jude said, she will scare some people away from swapping again and that's a shame. But at least you KNOW you did your part! Still it has to frustrate the daylights out of you! NO FAIR! BooHissBoo!

Ellen- So sorry to hear about being stiffed on a doll swap. I had it happen to me twice and will only swap with friends now. I will gladly be your partner anytime you want!
