Shattered

IMG_9636 (2)

Three of my windows were getting streaked and foggy in between the glass. Since they were new when we moved into our house, the life-time warranty was still in effect. I contacted the manufacturer and sent them pictures of the three windows. They agreed to send me three replacement double glass panes, but I had to pay $40 each for shipping.

I sent them a check and a couple of weeks later three large cartons arrived on my doorstep. When I picked them up to take them inside, one of the boxes had a rattling sound inside. I knew that meant the window paned was broken.Β  Examining the box, I could see there was a definite crease in the middle that looked like something heavy had dropped on it. I contacted the company again and explained the situation. They are going to send me a replacement.

    • It was a surprise to hear that box sounding like a Rain Stick! I like your pick up on the double meaning of double pain! I think I will add that in. Thank you. Hopefully all will end well. You are probably right. I think tempered glass breaks in little pieces rather than sharp shards.

  2. Oh, no! How frustrating. I bought shampoo from Amazon and the package was left by the door. The shampoo leaked out and was everywhere. Even the box was soaked and I can’t believe the deliverer didn’t notice. However, the story has a happy ending. I sent a photo of the mess to Amazon and they refunded my money and sent a replacement and a gift card. So I actually got the shampoo and conditioner for free. 😁
