So much for J.Crew

I ordered some khakis and cords online, and paid extra for 3-day delivery, because otherwise, they wouldn't get to me on time. The next day, I got a package, and I was pretty impressed. But I opened it, and it was a pair of flipflops with martini glasses embroidered on them (huh?) and a large jacket.

So I called J.Crew, and they apologized and told me to send it back. Then they told me it would take FOURTEEN DAYS to process the return...and THEN they could send me my original order.

Jerks. So I'm off to Leesburg Outlet Center this weekend for a last shopping spree. (Last time I went to the J.Crew there, they were selling rubber boots with little Scotty dogs on them. Can I wear those in Africa?)

Don't they have J Crew in Rwanda? :) Seriously, you are the only person I know who can effortlessly combine a story of working at the heart of a war-torn African nation with a story of a catalog store shopping misadventure and still make perfect sense. Keep us posted. We'll miss you!

I'll miss you too!

No J.Crew, but it would be hilarious if Banana Republic opened a store there, given its name...

That's an amazing story about your package Morgan, you should have started this blog ages ago and just filled us in on D.C. exploits . . . . what did you have for lunch today? Was the Metro busy into the city this morning? Did you get a seat?

lol . . . J.Charles does actually miss you though. Take very good care and looking forward to first impressions. XO
