    We were shopping at Old Navy tonight and when it was time to check out they asked me if I wanted to buy some Flip Flops to send to Haiti. I bought 8 for 20.00. When we got back out to the car and my husband asked me how much I spent I told him the amount and added that 20 of it was for the shoes. He rolled his eyes and called me naive. Is he right? I mean Old Navy is a national store so it can t be a scam can it?

    No, it probably wasn't a scam. The way I look at it is this-you made the donation out of the goodness of your heart, if they misuse said donation then it's on them. You TRIED to do the right thing.

    I don't think you were stupid...I'm guessing it was the real deal. Maybe check their website to see if they mention it there? You did a good thing in my book.

    If it was in the store, the clerk at the register rang it and it's on the reciept, its not a scam. I worked retail for years and trust me, there's no way they can run a scam if it's on the store registers. It's all computerized and the transactions are monitored.

    Your heart was in the right place, and I imagine it will help someone in Haiti. You aren't naive, you are kind.

    I think he is still smarting from an incident 13 years ago. Feed the children, an income tax check, PMS, and him sleeping in late were involved. [​IMG]

    Quote:Regardless of whether or not Old Navy is really gonna send 8 pair of flip-flops to Haiti (it's legit, I'm sure), that's still not a very nice thing for your husband to have said. And, over what...$20?

    There is another past decision you could scrutinize, ya know.. A much more important one. One that will...or, may affect the rest of your life. Perhaps he should be reminded of that... [​IMG]
