What's Wrong With This Picture?

I've always liked Clarks clogs. I have a couple of pairs of Nine West clogs, but much prefer the Clarks in terms of comfort and fit. Well, that was then and this is now. Alas, I believe the time has come to say sayonara to Clarks & Co.

You will recall the recent debacle of the disintegrating clog. In need of a pair of black clogs because I live in them during the Winter, I bought a new pair of Clarks, which would be these:

Look closely, and you begin to see the problem.

How about that? I went to put them on to wear to work yesterday morning and was dumbfounded to find in the box -- 2 left shoes. I was livid, and not only because I had to scramble to find some other shoes that would go with what I was wearing. This is it with Clarks. I'm looking for some other brand of clog that's comfortable, pretty, and not outrageously priced. Any suggestions?

I thought about you the other day. I was flipping channels and saw them selling YOUR shoes on QVC. I'd send them back and seriously write a demented letter (or email) to the CEO. If nothing else, it'll make you feel better. LOL!

Oh, believe me, Marion, I sent a scathing e-mail yesterday to the company I bought the shoes from. Today, I received a VERY welcome response -- which I'll write about tomorrow.:)

I suggest you keep them as is, and only make right turns. UPS does the same thing with their trucks (no left turns), and they save thousands if not millions of dollars annually.

It would serve them right to "clog" their email ;-)

However, a welcome response is only as good as the remedy they follow it with ;-)

Best foot forward vs foot in mouth clogging their meaning...developing ;-)
