Yesterday there was a knock on the door, and when I opened it up there was a package addressed to me. Kinda surprised as I wasnt expecting anything in the mail, I opened it up. Inside was a bag. A really nice handbag. I was very confused though cuz I had not ordered a bag, and my dearest darling Daniel knows that I'm kind of particular, so he would have asked my opinion before buying something like that. Besides there are a bajillion other gift ideas that would come before a bag.
I happen to be one of the "odd" females who isnt obsessed with bags. I'm just not a bag kinda girl. I stick my license, my debit card and my phone in my pocket, and I'm good to go. And Daniel knows this, so I was suspicious. Therefore, I called him.
He was just as baffled as me as to where this bag came from. So I say, "perhaps its a promotional gift." Daniel says, "so this company is gonna just send out bags to random people? Besides, where did they get your info?" Well of course I dont know, but it sounded good to me- a free and very nice bag--I'm all for it. No need to be suspicious- it is what it is! Even if I'm not a bag kinda girl- it's nice- and FREE!
Daniel, being the smarter half of our relationship, decides to investigate. And you know what he finds out? Well first- the bag is being sold for a hundred bucks. ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS! (dr evil style if you please.) For a bag. For crying out loud- it seems (in my humble opinion- and its probably just cuz I'm not into bags) that a bag is made with fabric- and not a whole lot of it. But sorry, that's a tangent I'm not meaning to go off on--(if you happen to be a bag kinda person and have spent more or less than this- I'm sure its lovely and probably a great investment! ;))
So back to Daniel investigating.. He finds out that it was charged to one of our cards by some suspicious email address not belonging to either one of us, nor anyone we know. So my free bag, was actually NOT free. Daniel looks into that account and finds some other charges that neither of us had placed, so he calls and gets things taken care of. And now we are returning the not free bag and getting a new card.
So here's the thing, the card is in Daniels name, not mine, but the bag was shipped to Kimmy Jackson, not Daniel Jackson(Daniel Jackson? he's a genius!). And that card is in Daniels wallet which he has with him at all times. So how the fetch did someone get that card number, but my info? I'm rather disturbed by this. And hello- why ship it to our address? If you've stolen someones card number and are placing an order- why ship it here, where someone might be smart enough to realize that we didnt order no stinking badgers and now we are gonna change that stolen info before you can do any more damage to that account? I, for one, am glad Daniel is smart enough to look into it. I was just gonna go skipping on my way with what I assumed was a promotional gift. I guess I can say I am a bit naive. Daniel completes me. ;)
