I wish I could trust everything I get off the internet, but I’ve had a lot of terrible experiences.
- When the pandemic started, I was neurotically buying disposable gloves for a while until our dentist told myself and others to simply wear an N-95 mask instead while having hand sanitizer nearby for quick hand cleaning.
But for multiple months I frantically scoured stores in person and online until I broke down and bought a 1000-count pack of vinyl gloves off Amazon. When the gloves arrived, over half of the boxes were contaminated with a black substance that I can only guess was mold of some kind. Thankfully Amazon has a quality return policy and purchaser service representatives that like retaining your business. I simply sent the contaminated gloves back and acquired a refund. However, that wasn’t without a crucial waste of time on our part, especially having to take the return package to the local UPS store so it could get back to Amazon. This happened again recently when I needed a up-to-date air conditioner filter. The 1s I regularly buy from local stores with activated charcoal on them have been unavailable for weeks. I don’t know if it’s something to do with the pandemic supply lines or if there are other extenuating circumstances; regardless, I started to panic a little when I couldn’t find another Heating and Air Conditioning filter with activated charcoal on it. I bought a pack of multiple from the internet with a high MERV rating, but they arrived odoring like chemicals! I couldn’t believe it, and sadly I had to return the Heating and Air Conditioning filters for a refund. Now I don’t know where I’m going to get an Heating and Air Conditioning filter for our house.
