Re: Help quick! Spots question

Oh wow. She's a total nutter. Knitting a sweater for her DEAD CAT?

I know you're pregnant and emotional, but this is funny mama, I promise. You did the right thing!! You're not Amazon or Target for goodness sakes.

I wouldn't worry, mama.

But seriously. She needed to come up with a better excuse, or just not give one. Sweater for her dead cat?!? Buying yarn off of Spots for this?

Re: Help quick! Spots question

omg, i know this isnt funny but I seriously cant stop laughing about her response that she was going to knit her dead cat a sweater. First of all..... who just chills in the living room with a dead cat while they knit for it, and second of all, even if I HAD a dead cat, and DID want to knit it a sweater, I wouldnt use HC yarn. I dont love cats that much. I think she's either seriously messing with you, or she's a nutball. Probably both.

WTF?!?! Seriously?!?! Don't people have better stuff to do with their time?!?! Sure, harrass a hormonal pregnant lady.

There you go, you don't need to take it personally because this person is obviously unbalanced. Not your fault they didn't take their meds today. That is really creepy.

Don't feel bad, this even happens to major companies. Target once listed Britax carseats online for uber cheap and it was an error. They canceled all the orders and explained to everyone that it was a mistake. It must have been a bummer for those people, but if Target can get away with it so can you. And like everyone else was saying this lady is off her rocker! Seriously, if she wanted to make you feel bad she could have come up with something less ridiculous!

ROFL! Really!? A dead cat?? Seriously...if you're going to try and guilt trip someone, think of a better use for the yarn. That just makes her come off as a total nutter.

I seriously can not stop laughing at this. Issue this crazy person a refund and re-list your yarn! If she leaves you a neg, you can respond to it and explain what happened (and maybe mention the dead cat sweater ).

Re: Help quick! Spots question

What a loon!

To avoid getting a negative feedback I think you can go in and cancel the order. I haven't tried it myself but I've heard you can do that on regular HC carts so I assume you can on spots too.

Re: Help quick! Spots question

I have made a few purchases off spots and never left feedback, I guess I should everything went just fine.

If you hear more from this lady you can ask if her cat ever jumped up on her lap and caused a typo. My cats love to be on my lap, maybe she can sympathize with that? This is too funny, I'm sorry it has stressed you out!
