just saw this thread..
and i feel very funny lohh! if the seller is busy with her baby, what is that gonna do with bringing 1 more tin of FM?
and the thing is, she asked her sis to go for the deal, NOT her... dont tel me her sis is so fragile to carry one more tin of FM? and seller is taking care of baby alrdy, what is that gonna do with the 1 tin of FM??
what i can say is, the seller want cheat ppl also dont know hw to find better excuses! bz with baby is NOTHING to do with the 1 tin of FM since her sis got the time to meet alrdy, can bring together! -.-"""
i recently encounter one incident. not really same as what you encountered but same is, bad customer service.. just to share...
i bought some stuffs from a pharmacy and the price is 95cents. i wanna give the cashier $1.05 but i gave the wrong coin. i gave her $1.10 instead. and she asked if i have 5cents. i then know i gave her the wrong coin and apologise to her while passing her e 5cents i had.
she didnt return me that 10cents so total i gave her $1.15.
someone who know SIMPLE mathematics will know she HAS to give me back 20cents. but she gave me 10cents. and i asked her "sry, arent you supposed to give me back 20cents? rmb, i gave you $1.15?"
she said "ya you gave me $1.15 so i have to give you back 10cents!"
then i was lik "huh?"
after few seconds, she took a 10cents from her wallet and pass to me and said "nvm lahh, the 10cents i GIVE you!"
i didnt take the 10cents from her at all cos it is NOT the matter of how much lesser she pay me back, it is the fact that she gave me the wrong change and didnt want to admit it!
i told her and her colleague "it is NOT the matter of the 10cents, a dollar or whatever, it is YOUR attitude! it's obviously you r in the wrong and yet, you not only dont wanna admit it and use a pathetic 10cent to shoo me off??"
and y i was so carefully checking the change was becos right before me, she gave the wrong change to another customer too! and of cos she gave the same black face when the customer approached her NICELY for the correct change..
what i wanna say is, customer service is very impt no matter one is selling things online or at retail shops. breaking the trust, lik what mummy has encountered is one of the bad customer service!
You are right. It is the service that you are providing. I mean if the Seller want to an HONEST buyer then she herself have to be honest.
Simply gesture can brighter up someone's day or even worse spoil it badly.
I love doing my shopping my online. It helps me decide carefully on the items I need for my baby. I do like shopping on the "outside" online market too but of course without the sales person or promoter "bugging" me from behind.
actually.. sometimes.. there are blur ppl like me who will give wrong change even though its very simple maths lol. i remember there was once someone comment that i like to act blur cos she dont believe i can be really so blur.. well well.. a bit hurting to hear that cos she is my friend though not close.. but then.. maybe i blur till she feels im faking it..
i dont know y the seller brings only 3 tins but then... cheating just 1 tin of milk powder seems a bit meaningless? is it that expensive to cheat? maybe some misunderstandings somewhere? but of cos her attitude is not right in the first place. i just dont see y she need to cheat on just a tin of milk powder..
btw i realise many really young mummies (i dont mean all) likes to ask qns without really thinking through or do their own research before asking.. i have a few forum young mummy friends are like that too. but then the difference is.. they ask me via msn. not hp..
Our girl's blog!
Annie, asking questions without doing research is still tolerable.
There are those who offer half-baked advice that are ungrounded and sometimes even harmful. These mummies are really scary man!
After much anticipation on this issue and received many feedbacks on this particular mummy who is out to cheat or whatever it is, I have decided to totally let go of the milk.
Been thoroughly thinking about it for as long as I could be able to take it, I finally message the mummy saying you can keep both the money and tin of milk. I suppose many would agree with me that “well, just let’s go the money and the tin of milk, treat is as a donation”. And I did it.
Reason for doing so, I was sitting down at my desk with plenty of papers work thinking hey, this mummy didn’t even offer a single apologise and she does not even feel a little remorse about the whole issue. Here I am rushing up and down with my baby in tow while she stays at home with her baby enjoying life. Well, she is treating me like an idiot. Still have the check to say that “I charge 1 tin for $5, I sold you 3 for $12 which is very cheap…As for the remaining 1 tin, do you want to collect at dhoby ghaut? Tomorrow after 2pm? Is that fine?”
What am I suppose replied to that….??? Hey mummy, didn’t you know that I have to work and that nobody left the office at 2pm just to pick up a tin of milk from you like you suggested right after you sent me a message saying “How about meeting up at Potong Pasir mrt…?”
This is truly unfair and it very unfair. Sad to say up to now you didn’t even say a simple SORRY. And oh by the way, dont’t use your baby as an excuse saying yr baby is sick cause my baby is sick too and I still come all the way to meet-up your “nerdy” sister in the RAIN. And I repeat in the rain, hey. You are lucky I replied your message that I am not turning up for that tin of milk, yet you have the cheek to scold me in “bad” language telling me to FUCK off and that you have your limit and that I may call you whatever names. Saying that God have eyes and that dont’t ever message you anymore.
Hey French Fries, if you ever read these you damn a low down. God do have eyes and that is why you are down with a sick baby. Mind you if you are out to cheat people think about other people who also have kids and babies. We are working our heads out to earn “decent” money with HONESTY and TRUST.
dont’t let me catch you again because seriously I am going to report you to the authority if I catch hold of you. This is my warning to you. Lastly you are a damn rude lady.
no matter if she means to 'cheat' you or what, the excuses she gave are too silly i think.. ya her baby might be ill but the 1 who met up with you was her sis right?
anw, just be more careful and in future when dealing online, must double triple onfirm with the seller the price and the amount of product before meeting =)

if frenchfries has agreed on the selling price, there is not even the point to mention about selling you cheap. For buying and selling, as long as price is agreed MEANS you have to deliver, business is business.
anyway Mummy , just treat it as a lesson learnt. If next time conditions are not favourable to you, you can politely reject. No need to be soft hearted At most take back all the tins of milk and sell to someone else who can keep their words.
lastly wish all babies and mummies in good health always.
It is good to let other members to know who is the particular dishonest trader in this forum so that in order other members from getting cheated by same person again
I think this thread more suitable to be at Home Life, Relationships & Finance section as a place for you to let off your steam
ive been following this topic with interest and quite curious on why you calling her french fries? or is that her nick in this website? however i do agree with loves, on naming this particular mummy so that in future others can take precautions. i wouldnt say forgive and forget cos no word of sorry is offered thru out for all the trouble and excuses she's given you. but just forget about it and treat the money as donation to a poor, pathetic individual. the more you think about it the more anger you felt. as for that mummy, what goes around comes around. if you reading this do some self reflection.

in other stuff like family matters, then not so serious lahh...
but thank goodness most of the mummies in this forum are not like that.
lol thats true. hehe
