This post has only a small amount to do with money.
I went to an event tonight that I signed up for a few weeks ago. I sent an email a week an advance as I was supposed to. Drive up to the old train station (about $5 in gas), paid for parking ($4) and left work a half hour early ($15). For an event I spent $45 on. Basically I sat there from 6:30 to 7:30 waiting, while other people participated, but my email was lost or something, so I sat around waiting for them to get to me. When they finally did an hour later, I was so pissed off that I just asked for a refund. The guy was very nice about it and all, because he saw how pissed off I was, but you should address your issue BEFORE I’m sitting there for an hour, waiting for you to get to me, while everyone around me is having a good time. There was one other person who they weren’t ready for too–because she hadn’t sent them her information. Maybe you should help me before her, SINCE I DID WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO.
I’m just really mad that this was something I was looking forward to, and even though I’m going to get a refund, I also spent other money or missed out on making money that I’m not going to get back–and that sucks.
