SASE Headache

bigred(z8 Ark.)December 28, 2009

I just received second email from a person that says they sent sase back in Nov. that never was returned back. Back in Nov. I did quite a few sases and when I do sases,I don't keep track or a record of them. I just fill the request and put it back in the mail within a week of receiving.Now my question is,if I didn't get the sase or if I did and it was lost on the return...who's responsible for postage second time around? If it was a trade,I wouldn't hestitate replacing seeds lost in transit but am I responsible for replacing sase seeds? I guess I'm really peeved because there's a slight hint of accussation that I misappropriated this person's stamps for my own use.

Really turns me off to doing sases when I get this type of email....not the lost in mail part but the tone.

SASE Headache
Yes, they sure are. Even with those that I made stipulations on, that were to determine the # of packs one would receive have not gone so well....no list...no GW name.

Their bubblie 'could' still turn up to you, if it wasn't yet received, or it 'could' still turn up on their end. It is not all that unheard of for things to take 'several' weeks to all of a sudden be 'found' by the PO or something. I once received in a bubblie that was postmarked 6 weeks earlier.

Now my question is,if I didn't get the sase or if I did and it was lost on the return...who's responsible for postage second time around?
Certainly not you Peggy.

I'm sorry for their tone. They must be new or newer here or they would know better than to think or say such a thing to you, of all people.

Hopefully the bubblie will turn up, or they will send another one, or else just drop it. Try to not let it ruin your GW experience of sharing your seeds with others.

This sure has seemed like my year for dealing with people with crappy attitudes and I'm getting cranky in my old age.

Oh my gosh! They just need to get over it and realize some things get lost. I realize sometimes postage is tight but isn't that the risk you take when you enter a deal? They just need to start over if you still have whatever it was they think you owe her. Personally I would tell her to send postage and supply the env if I had extra. On a bad day I would just say Sorry I didn't get it. Try again. On a REALLY good day I'd send it to her if she can provide the info you need. Why is some friendly trading or giving such a big deal? Aren't there bigger problems in the world? Well now I have spouted off on a forum I'm not real reg on. I just don't understand why some people have to make life so hard when others are sharing their seeds.

I agree and that's one of the reasons that I rarely offer sasbe's anymore. I've had that happen a couple times and depending on the person who's envie is supposedly lost I've sent seeds and used my own stamps but have also told a sender that it wasn't received and if they wanted the seeds they'd have to send a replacement. The ones I replaced from my own pocket were from people I've dealt with previously. BTW the people I've replaced the seeds/postage from my own pocket have always offered to reimburse me. I'd just tell this person to send another sasbe or forget it, especially if they have a nasty attitude.
