This originally started in the personal mysteries thread.
The ac-dc wall charger for my tablet disappeared. After a couple of days, mom finally fessed up to throwing out "a weird looking wire". So I tried all sorts of places, including Radio Shack, to get a replacement. No luck. I finally get in touch with the manufacturer over the phone (they never responded to my emails) and they tell me to mail a check or money order with a written request for a wall charger. No, they don't take orders over their website.
So over three weeks ago I mail my order with a personal check. I gave it a little time due to the upcoming holidays, but they couldn't give me any updates when I called last week.
Yesterday there's a voicemail from them saying "We don't accept personal checks, only money orders or cashier's checks."
I'm still trying to calm down before calling them back to say nevermind.
So I'm never buying another item from Craig Electronics again.
