Something always has to come along...
And screw everything up. I found out today that the package that contained all the jewelry from the party I had, plus all my personal jewelry I got for hosting the party and such, was stolen from my front porch on Thursday. I didn't even realize it was shipped so I didn't know it was missing until Sunday. It turns out it was left on the porch by UPS on Thursday at 3:12 and by the time I got home at 6:30 it was gone. I am so embarrassed because we bought a home in a reinvestment area (which we knew was a little rough, but is coming up little by little) and I have defended the neighborhood and the area to everyone who had something bad to say about it and now they just proved everyone else right. I just don't know what to do. A woman across the street said she watched the package get taken, which begs the question why didn't she call the police or say something to Seth or I about it, but in any case she will tell the police what she saw, so that's something. But one of our neighbors has a family member involved and I just know this is going to get messy. I'm still going to report it though because the items that were stolen were worth quite a lot of money. I'm also angry at the jewelry company because they shipped over a thousand dollars worth of jewelry and didn't require a signature to take the package they just left it on the porch. I had to sign for $16 roller skate wheels once, but not for this? Hmm... not very logical.
I'm trying to get calmed down but I am just so angry and hurt. Then to make matters worse the consultant for the company is basically insinuating that I will have to reimburse all my sales out of pocket. I certainly don't have that kind of money. I just don't know what to do. Really I want to go out on my front porch and scream like a banshee, but I know that won't help anything. Might get me shot, but won't help anything. I'm just sick about it.
*update* I decided to call the actual jewelry company and since I did not receive my package they are first going to do a trace on the package with UPS just to make sure it's not somewhere bizarre or I just missed it. But if it hasn't been located in 2 bus days they will reship my order. I feel so relieved. At least I know that everyone who ordered from me will still get their orders. I think I will have them ship it to my mom's house instead of mine the 2nd time though, because she is home most of the day and will definitely get it.
