You're not going to believe this!!!!

So, last Saturaday I place an order with Finish Line for a pair of shoes for the boyfriend. They ship them out, give a tracking number, and they say they will be here by Friday. So last night I check their status and it says they're going to Wauwatosa, WI. I'm in OHIO!!!! I call UPS and they say the problem is with Finish Line. I call them, they say they will send me a replacement pair overnight and I will get them today. I ask for a tracking number they say they will email one to me.

It never came.

Today I call to get the tracking number and they say they were never shipped out, that they will ship them out today and I will get them Monday. They cannot call the store until 1pm my time b/c the store is in CA. At 1pm they call me back to tell me the shoes are out of stock and they will have to refund me my money! They will give me a $10 gift card for my troubles.

By this time I'm ready to rip someone's face off.

I got a little crafty and found the address to where my shoes were shipped to. I then call AT&T 1411 and give them the address, and they give me the phone number. I call this guy and explained my situation and he says he hasn't received any shoes. I say thanks and hang up.

I call back to Finish Line and am on the phone with the manager telling her to refund my card when my phone starts to die. I tell her I will call her back.

An hour later my phone rings, it's the guy from Wauwatosa, WI. He says he GOT my shoes and would like to know where I want them shipped to. He ends up shipping them to me, emailing me the tracking number, and when I ask him the cost he tells me to donate to the red cross and he'll call it even.

How awesome is that?!?! I was going to have to wait one week for my card to be credited, then re-order them and wait abother week to get the shoes, so all in all it was going to take me like 3 weeks just to get a pair of shoes. I can't believe he called me back! Is that awesome or what!?!

Too bad I can't hit a button for karma for this guy lol!

Actually I do think I have that sexy phone voice thing going on...ok I'm lying, I sound like a 5 year old and I know it, lol! I know, I still cannot believe he sent it to me. Now I'm deciding on whether or not I should call Finish Line and have them refund me my money for treating me so bad. A $10 gift card is insulting, don't you think? They're a multi-million dollar company. When I called back I told them to refund my card and I would place a new order, I wanted a discount and overnight shipping, they said, "I'm sorry, we don't offer discounts with that kind of shoe." I said r u kidding me? I'm willing to go thru ur company again and ur telling me I have to pay full price? That is so uncool

If I was the guy in Wisconsin, I'd do the same. After all, who knows when something that I order isn't going to get sent to Ohio.

Just goes to show you that Wisconsonites are good people. Well those of us who aren't Iowa transplants at least...

One of my favorite lines from a movie was in Men of Honor when the main character, who was black, was shunned by all but one white man in his class. When asked why he hadn't done so, as well, the man answered, "I'm from Wisconsin." Sorta sums us up, I think.

YMMV, there are some real world class butt heads here, too.

True. But it's nice to know there are others out there trying to make the world a more pleasant place to live. And hearing about it encourages us to try to do the same.

Thanks for the story, emonti!

That was incredibly nice, and not something you see everyday unfortunately. It is good to know that there are still people like that out there.

I just went through the same sort of thing, but with L.L. Bean. I ordered in the middle of November to have as Christmas presents, sent an e-mail at Christmas, when they told me that sometimes it takes 2-4 weeks... to go by air, no tracking number. I sent them e-mail at the beginning of January, to which they didn't bother to reply, sent another e-mail on the 7th of January... no reply, and finally sent another e-mail insisting up a response two days ago. Yesterday I received an e-mail telling me that they would be happy to re-ship my order, but three of the four items were out of stock. Nothing but a "Sorry, we don't have your stuff but if you'd like, we can credit your credit card with a refund."

This is L.L. Bean!!! Leon founded the company based on quality and customer service. They still have the quality but have grown too big for the customer service. Fortunately, there are a dozen other stores on the Internet these days who carry the same goods, and are still small enough to insure good customer service. I wonder if I'll get a call from whoever gets my package?!? I'm happy to hear that you got your shoes. Maybe we'll get lucky too! Can I borrow your telephone voice?
