So I ordered from Shipt, a regular occurance and honestly a life saver BEFORE having two kids. I had a larger order, and the shopper was luckily able to find mostly everything. Until they got to a spice I needed.
They sent me a picture of two options because they didn’t have what I originally requested. No big deal, I picked one of them then I hit them with a friend “Thanks!”
They responded with a kiss face emoji. Then a smile emoji.
I did not know how to respond. Honestly, I was creeped out and uncomfortable. I didn’t respond. I instead screen shot and sent to my co-workers. “Ew” was the general response.
Then I got their reply, “Um… I hit the wrong emoji. I am so sorry, didn’t mean to get personal there! (insert sweating face emoji).”
THANK GOD! But also, how quickly I went from being extremely uncomfortable and unhappy to feeling genuinely bad for this shipt shopper.
It was an honest mistake, not a big deal at all, and yet I guarantee they stay up at night thinking about this moment for many years to come. I know I would.
Dear Shipt Shopping, let it go. Also, thanks for the blog post!
