survey sez

i visit
several online shopping sites
 i like seeing
 whats new
 whats on sale

 i even
 need something
 i go shopping
 i prefer doing it
online vs going into a real shop
 its easier for me
 to back out of a web store
 without buying

 before my trip to paris
 i was consumed
 with finding the perfect tote
 i thought i had
in the end
 not so much

 still searching for it
 as well as
 perfect black shoulder bag

 do not confuse the two
 one is a life long campaign
 the other is driven by whim
 i leave it
 to decide
which is which

 as usual i digress
 i almost forgot what sat me down in front of a blank blog post template this morning
 segueing into a paragraph
 about something
 i read
 the original premise
 would return

 it did

 you can scroll down to read about the other 'thought' now
 keep reading
 to the

'the outnet'

while i dont truly love this site
 i must tell you
 about it
 they are very smart
 have excellent customer service
 i did find
 a really cool 'chanel-ish' jacket
 at a price
 i could not resist
 i ordered it
i know once its cool enough
 i will wear it
as often as
 i tote
 the marc jacobs cross body bag
 very much reduced
 hard to pass up
that was my first buy at the outnet

i ordered this jacket
i opted for the slow free shipping
yet it arrived within a few days
it was packed
amid lots of tissue
on a hanger
 a classy looking reusable garment bag
 a free shipping return label
which did not get used

last week
 an email popped up from the outnet
if i would take the time to participate in a survey
 those of you who know me
i love giving feedback
 giving good feedback
 is always a pleasure

color me
 i got not only a phone call
 which sadly i missed
damn phone
 sent it to voice mail
 now there's feedback i would enjoy giving if only at&t would ask
the caller
left a message
thanking me for taking time to respond to the survey
 giving me a $30 credit toward my next purchase for doing so

there was also an email reiterating the message

customer service

who can ignore a nice size credit?

i am not rushing over to shop
 right this minute
the next time i need something
 you know the outnet will be my first stop

 here's what i almost wrote about

 is the tag/name of an artist
 who installs
new york city as well as in los angeles and mexico city
 so far
 i havent spotted any
 its an excellent reason
 looking up

 i read about XAM in a new york times article here

no one asked me
 is paying me
 to say these nice things
truth be told
 i would have told you about the jacket and the outnet anyway

the ny times didnt compensate me either
