I seem to have been the subject of some appalling customer service this year. I don't take it well. Shop assistants have been told off, shops have been walked out of, moany tweets have been written, ranty emails have been fired off... I might be turning into a narky old woman but frankly I feel it's justified.
I won't dwell on the negative stuff. Well maybe just for a moment ... Merseyrail is an appalling excuse for a company and I would hate them even if they didn't take three weeks to reply to emails. And Sports Direct are still on my miffed list for telling me that I should buy pink trainers.
Positive stuff ahoy!
I was perusing the Dorothy Perkins sale a few weeks ago when I saw something that made me go "FJHMN<HKJDBNM GREENCATS!!!" Unfortunately, as is often the case with the Dotty P sales, I clicked on the item and it turned out to be out of stock in all sizes, causing my hopes to be utterly crushed. CRUSHED, I tell thee. But this wasn't a Dotty P item, it was from Ruby Rocks, so I hopped onto their website and emailed them to ask if they had any lurking in a store room somewhere.
Hopes were duly restored because I got a very nice email back from Jen at Ruby Rocks asking me what size I wanted and passing me onto someone else who might be able to help. Then into my inbox pinged another very nice email from Gemma at Madam Rage telling me that they'd found one, in my size and it was on sale on their website. Triple hurrah! So I bought it, it arrived very speedily and I am a happy Alex, spreading the word about good customer service.
It's just such a nice length and colour, oh and did I mention it's all #wardrobezoo-tastic? Straight to the top of my favourite tops list!
Not just cats but green starry cats!
