Ok I’m a regular poster here but I feel so bad about this I wanted to go anonymous..
I registered a while back at a higher end department store only because I live in a small town and it was the only store available in many different cities where my guests live. I happened to register for a total “wish” item that i would never buy for myself b/c it was expensive…we’re talking to close to $400.
When I was telling people about my experience registering I made a few jokes about this item and how I just “threw it on there” not really thinking anyone would buy it but that I was throwing caution to the wind bc i would never buy it for myself, you know, why not?
Well I registered at a smaller store in my city for the local guests and the store clerk asked if I’d registered for this particular product and she warned me not buy a particular make and model becuause it’s ridiculously over priced and has bad reviews because it always breaks. So I set a mental note for myself to check the item number on my registry and to remove it if it was this particular product. Well here’s the tricky part…when I went online to remove it, someone had bought it for me!!
So now I feel horrible that it’s this ridiculously over-priced product and it’s probably going to break as it is — All i’ve seen are bad reviews on this product and I’ve seen it on other companies websites for almost a third of the price!
What do I do??? I dont want someone to have to pay for something that’s going to break especially since it’s expensive. I know they bought it for me because of the jokes I made about putting frivolous items on the registry and they felt I really wanted it…honestly, it’s not that important to me, especially if it’s an inferior product. Should I just keep quiet and exchange it for a different brand later on or should I try and find out who it was so I can tell them about it so they can pick something cheaper or whatever? I feel like anyone I can think of who would buy this for me, bought it bc they thought it was my top wish item and got it for me regardless of the price. I’d feel better knowing they stayed within their means and got me something they could afford instead, especially bc it’s not that important to me…
ugh help i feel so bad!!!!
