Did you receive the shoes?

On December 10, anna started a giveaway thread. I offered a pair of brand new $160 shoes. I wrapped them, walked to the Post Office, stood in line, and spent $13 to mail them. Petty I know, but Iím disappointed that I never heard if they were received.

Iím wearing mine for the 1st time today and love them. Goofy shoes, but I love them anyway.

Do you think Iím petty?

Nope not petty at all. That happened to me a few years ago on PT. Love your shoes by the way!

I dont think you are petty at all. Maybe this person never got them. I would recommend that you pm this person and ask if they received them. Just an idea..

Do you know to whom you sent them?

If it was me, I didn't get them!

i'm confused....don't you know who you mailed them to? why wouldn't you just PM that PTer to make sure they were received?---that way you could follow up with the post office if not.

I agree that you should contact the recipient. Maybe they have been away from their home for the holiday and haven't checked the mail yet. That was very kind of you.

Sorry, I should have said I donít remember the name of the person I sent them to, I only remember it wasnít one of you regulars I recognized. I do recall she had about 500 posts. Weird thing to remember, right?

Sorry to those who found my post offensive. I honestly was trying to be kind.

I don't think your post was offensive at all. I'd also be curious to know what the recipient thought it I had sent a package.
I do think it's possible there have been issues with mail delivery and maybe she hasn't received it yet.
Count me in as one of the posters who is disappointed to have missed that thread (though I don't know if I'd have the fashion guts to wear those shoes. I'm a pretty conservative dresser, lol. They look great on you, though!).

The person that you sent the shoes to, wouldn't they have sent you a private message letting you know they wanted them? Could you just check your private messages and find out the name of the person that way?

I also think those shoes are.....interesting

Man, I am sooooooo sorry I posted. I delete my PMs periodically. My intent was to ask if you thought it was tacky of me to wonder whether the shoes had been received. Iím sorry I was so unclear.

I didn't see a problem with your post and I don't think it's petty. I would be feeling the same in your situation.

And, for what it's worth, I like the shoes.

How did I miss a giveaway post like that?

I would also want to know if the person received the shoes. I hope you hear from them eventually.

I don't think you have anything to apologize or be sorry for. I think it is weird that someone would ask for the shoes and NOT communicate with you for getting them or not getting them.

I hope they see this and fix the problem with a pm or a post. They most definitely should be sending you a thank you in the mail, too.

Or maybe you could search your post history (or Anna's) and find the original post and pm that person?

I saw your give away and am sorry the person who "won" did not let you know they had received them. There is no excuse for this. Nope your not petty.

I donít think youíre petty at all. Itís perfectly reasonable to want to know if someone received your gift. I hope thereís just a simple explanation as to why you havenít heard.

Nope! Not petty at all. The receiver should have responded to let you know they arrived and to thank you.

I wonder if they arrived at the wrong house and somebody else is wearing them around town. Almost sounds like a book I could write if I could actually write!

Hooray, the receiver did get the shoes! I apparently missed her PM note. The great news: we both wore them on Christmas.

Thanks to all for listening to me whine. Happy ending.
