I did get my shoes last week. Yay! And I loved them. They were perfect.
Or so I thought.
But Hubby had to fuck me over and point out that they were too small.
"What do you mean too small? I'm wearing them aren't I?'
"Your toes are too close to the end."
"No they aren't."
"Yes they are."
"How can you tell?"
Hubby plays squash, so apparently this makes him some sort of athletic shoe expert. Don't make the same mistake I did by asking why or how this is true. According to Hubby, it just IS.
So I had to send the goddam things back. And after I'd already fallen in love with them, too. Another mistake you should avoid? Liking your shoes before your spouse has time to inspect them. I know. This makes sense in terms of female-male, but not vice versa. Whatever. The things you learn through marriage, I guess.
At least Adidas offers free returns. So I packaged my little shoes up and the postman picked them up at my house. Farewell fuchsia friends...
So all that was left was to re-re-order the shoes in a slightly larger size. No problemo, right?
All because everybody else screwed up in the first place, Adidas gave me 20% off. Remember? But my discount was subject to a one-time use online promo code. ONE-TIME USE.
So I had to call the customer service guy AGAIN and ask for ANOTHER discount for the purchase of the now THIRD pair of shoes.
He was nice enough, and he emailed me a new promo code.
Until I got the confirmation email that somehow indicated that I had ordered the size 5 again. What?! Nooooo! I want 5 and a half! What the eff?
No, I don't know how that happened. I'm just awesome. We already know that.
And I guess you know what I had to do next. Yeah. Call the Adidas customer service dude for the 50th time and ask for a THIRD promo code, for the FOURTH pair of shoes.
I told him I would understand if he wanted to kick me in the shins, but he was surprisingly chipper about the whole shit-show.
So Monday the shoes got re-re-re-ordered.
And then I waited.
You're probably sick of reading this, so here is a photo journal of the conclusion to the fuchsia x-trainers saga. Enjoy!
|Hubby wasn't home yet, so I took all the pics by myself.|
|And the big reveal!!!|
|And then I *may* have gotten carried away with the camera. Sorry.|
