Comment: I know the 1st time you marked sent on November 13, 2012 (which was a month after acceptable Send By date Oct 17, 2012) your swap got "lost" and I contacted you on December 3, 2012 to let you know that I never received anything. You did PM me back Dec 4 and stated you would "make good", but it's March 6, 2013 and still nothing has arrived. I've been very patient and understanding, and will gladly change your rating if I ever receive my Zt'd Message swap. Sorry to hear of your family struggles and I can truly emphasize with your troubles- My own family is going through a similar situation which is one of the reasons I'm now taking a break from swap-bot.
March 13, 2013- Swap received and I now gladly change the 1 to a 3 rating
Comment: I finally did receive this!! Thank you! The front was super cute as were the extras. The only thing was it was super late and you were supposed to include a decorated fact sheet as well on gnomes! **The fact sheet was NOT included. I received a note stating sorry it was late and a couple of extras and that was it. You stated to me in your email on May 15th that it would be dropped in the mail on May 16th. I still have this PM. It was postmarked June 7th. This is the reason for the 3 as well as the fact sheet not being included. I received one message from you on May 15th. I even pm'd you on May 25th asking if you were planning on sending this. It was read but not replied to. I do appreciate you sending this and appreciate the extras but for the lack of communication and the missing part of the swap I rated according to swap-bot rules. ***I NEVER called you a liar, anywhere in my rating or in a pm, EVER...that you thought up all on your own. I am sorry, but I can rip your envelope up and still never find the fact sheet. All I received was a note stating it was late and you were sorry and two extras and that WAS IT!! Nothing else. Believe me, I forget things too sometimes in envelopes, it happens. But NO ONE is calling you a liar.***
Response: I sent it out, TWICE. I even e-mailed a copy of the print and the envelope!!! I also sent you a PM June 5th which you didn't respond to stating the reasons for my tardiness. Things happen in life that can't be avoided. My family will always come before swap-bot.
Comment: i got my card today. it's was stamped past the due date so i'm giving you a 3... thanks for sending it!
Response: I find it completely unfair of your rating, especially from an "original member." The postcard was sent ON TIME. I cannot be held responsible for post office mishandling, an issue that is clearly noted on my profile page had you chosen to read it to begin with. You rated a one without even bothering to contact me before hand which would have been GREATLY appreciated.
