Yes, we’ve all been there—two in the morning, listening to declarations of “fabulous” and “life changing.” Admittedly, I have fallen for this ploy. I have been sucked in by the claims. It’s really hard not to. The world is quiet and still, and these amazing actors are your closest neighbors telling you about the most miraculous product that will definitely save you tons of money, no matter what you spend in the next few moments. And it’s all about relating; you find yourself feeling close to these old pals that remind you of someone you knew well but haven’t spoken to in forever. These are the friends that let you cheat off of them in high school. Love them! Trust them! Not!
I’m not a big online or phone purchaser. I like the option of a quick return. I tend to change my mind. That’s the problem I run into. Returns are a pain. And even if they try to make it uncomplicated, going to the post office stinks. It’s much easier to get ‘er done with a trip to the mall or department store, and actually be done. No waiting. Visa is credited. Done. But occasionally I just can’t resist those smiling faces on QVC.
My good friend Kathy recently had pneumonia—it cost her $160 on QVC. Make-up and purses. QVC is a smart company. They put regular gals on the show, not too skinny, not too fat. These are ladies you could be friends with—at least long enough to spend a few bucks. They pat you on the back every single step of the way. They even have easy pay.
