*Sigh* I’m so sad. I purchased Valentines cake vouchers from Blueberry and Company last February for 50% off but never got to claiming it because I failed to see the teeny-weeny information that you could only claim it on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at Il Mercanti. Otherwise, if you want to get it in the morning, you have to go to Ayala Town Center which is way beyond reasonable distance from our location. Night times are extremely hectic for an occupied mom like me, plus, the way to Metro Walk from 6pm onwards has usually heavy traffic so scheduling the pick-up was quite tricky. I had it at the back of my mind though, that the voucher is valid until May only.
But when I checked my account with Ensogo just a while ago, the voucher says claiming is until May 18 only!!! I wanted to scream and to cry like a baby. That was just last Friday! I did try to ask for consideration though but as expected, to no avail. To add insult to the injury, the woman I was talking to on the phone seemed careless and heartless as if it doesn’t really matter. Okay fine, I didn’t get consideration, I was late for just 3 days. But her nonchalant (I think she was even happy, grrrrrr…) tone was like a slap on my face… *deep sigh*
Well, people say when you lose, don’t lose the lesson. My lessons are to check and double check details before jumping into something and have contingency plans at hand when it’s needed and to write down deadlines in BOLD letters, UNDERSCORED and POSTED on places where I’m sure to see it EVERYDAY! Haay, I am so depressed. I wanted that heart cake so much back then. I didn’t expect to get a broken heart instead.
Anyway, it only costed me Php158, plus the cakes are probably just tiny and taste awful. Just sour-graping if it could help me get over my forfeited vouchers. *deep sigh*
