Soft Lips and Scented Rooms

I had been looking at my Moroccan Mint Tea candle, and I was thinking its getting low and I only got 1. So I made a call to every Anthropologie in Dallas and I could get no one to answer their phone out of 3 stores..Talk about ticked off..So finally I get an answer at the store I shop at, and was told there were NONE left. So I made a call to customer service for help and they checked what my store had in invertory and they had 24 candles...HUH???? I asked her to call and confirm and get back with me. Well she never did so Honey and I made a drive on a whim hoping they were there. I stalked the store and NOTHING. I almost cried. I thought maybe the chick was right when she said they had none, but what about the 24? So I went to the register and asked the cashier if she got a call from customer service, she said no...So she calls the manager up and he has no clue and doesn't even know what candle I was talking about..SO I was thinking..WELL I'LL BE DAMNED! Then the lovely girl says, "I know what they look like..I will go check." Manager says to us.."she found them, how many do you want?"..4 please. I was so happy...I love it when people actually do their damn jobs and I leave happy. She said they did have alot in the back so customer service was right. They are on clearance for $9.95 and weren't marked so I think they were just forgot about for months on a shelf. So I told her to leave them where they were in the stock room. I so love the scent, I am thinking I may want to share (hint). We shall see.

Have you ever used ROSEBUD SALVE by the company below? It is the best. I love mint, and this tin came with 3 full size tins. Regular, Strawberry, and Mint Salve. All 3 for 9.95!!!!! talk about a steal.

Love the lip balm. Mint is my go to as well.

Isn't it funny how panicked you can get over a candle? I'm the exact same way with things I love. Creatures of habit.

I have been planning to check out that lip balm. I'll have to pick it up next time I get a chance. Funny about the candle. I think we've all been there.

Ughh. That is so frustrating! That incident you had almost always makes me want to go in the stockroom myself!

Girl it's good you kept asking them for that candle. People just don't give customer service like they used to. I had to call up Best Buy corporate last week about that Toya they got working at the Tupelo store. That girl deserves to get fired three times and then some!

GIrl, I cant stand bad customer service. If you dont like what you do then try something else.
