I’m a sucker for something shiny on my body, so I bought a $6,700 diamond necklace that I’m kind of obsessed with. But the thing is, now that it’s on, it’s really not all that pretty.
My husband was all like, “Hey, that necklace is gorgeous! Can you put it in a jewelry box?” I tried to explain how I love it but he was unimpressed with that.
Took my husband to an upscale chain grocery store to convince him to get me that necklace. “You’re going to get that, right? It’s the greatest necklace you’ve ever seen.”
But it’s just a jewelry box. I’m not a jewelry expert, but the necklace he got looks like something else made out of, like, a little string and twine. Seriously, it’s like something that would come in a box.
We’re going to see if they’ll do a discount to return things online that aren’t working. We got a new phone charger for the wife last Christmas before Christmas, but we waited until now to return it since we bought it online. That’s always gonna be the cheapest way to return a product.
