Shopping tip: What to look for in the perfect heel?
A few shopping tips I learned from my new shoe salesman friend Davey from the Kauai, Hawaii Macys:
look for a shoe with a platform at the toe (it absorbs shock as you walk lessening the burden on your feet)
pay attention to the little print inside of your shoe that says whether it’s (DONT GET) "man made material" or (DO GET) “genuine leather”
genuine leather is more flexible and moves with your feet as you walk where as man made material remains stiff, and as your feet swell throughout the day, the material doesn’t allow much flexibility causing your feet to hurt
the Heel Liners prevent your heel from slipping out the back as you walk and the Ball of Foot lessens your ball of foot’s pressure as you carry on your journey **TIP: don’t forget about doubling up…sometimes you need that extra support
Do this and it won’t matter if your heels are 1 or 5 inches, Dr. Scholls and Davey saved my life because I was walking around in Vegas for 5 days wearing my leather Nine West 4.5 inch heels and BOY was I thankful!
Hopefully these prove to be just as useful for you whether it be clubbing shoes or business shoes that your future shopping endeavors take you =)
Be careful!! new ways ppl r stealing credit card info..
New way of STEALING...
ESPECIALLY LOOK AT SCENE THREE...
Be sure to read Scene 3. Quite interesting. This is a new one.
People sure stay busy trying to cheat us don't they?
A friend went to the local gym and placed his belongings in the locker. After the workout and a shower, he came out, saw the locker open, and thought to himself, 'Funny, I thought I locked the locker...
Hmm, 'He dressed and just flipped the wallet to make sure all was in order.
Everything looked okay - all cards were in place...
A few weeks later his credit card bill came - a whooping bill of $14,000!
He called the credit card company and started yelling at them, saying that he did not make the transactions.
Customer care personnel verified that there was no mistake in the system and
asked if his card had been stolen...
'No,' he said, but then took out his wallet, pulled out the credit card, and yep - you guessed it - a switch had been made.
An expired similar credit card from the same bank was in the wallet.
The thief broke into his locker at the gym and switched cards.
The credit card issuer said since he did not report the card missing earlier, he would have to pay the amount owed to them.
How much did he have to pay for items he did not buy? $9,000! Why were there no calls made to verify the amount swiped? Small amounts rarely trigger a 'warning bell' with some credit card companies. It just so happens that all the small amounts added up to big one!
A man at a local restaurant paid for his meal with his credit card.
The bill for the meal came, he signed it and the waitress folded the receipt and passed the credit card along.
Usually, he would just take it and place it in his wallet or pocket. Funny enough, though, he actually took a look at the card and, lo and behold, it was the expired card of another person.
He called the waitress and she looked perplexed.
She took it back, apologized, and hurried back to the counter under the watchful eye of the man.
All the waitress did while walking to the counter was wave the wrong expired card to the counter cashier,
and the counter cashier immediately looked down and took out the real card.
No exchange of words --- nothing! She took it and came back to the man with an apology..
Make sure the credit cards in your wallet are yours.
Check the name on the card every time you sign for something and/or the card is taken away
for even a short period of time.
Many people just take back the credit card without even looking at it, 'assuming' that it has to be theirs.
FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, DEVELOP THE HABIT OF CHECKING YOUR CREDIT CARD EACH TIME IT IS RETURNED TO YOU AFTER A TRANSACTION!
This one took me by surprise. I would never thought to check on this
Yesterday I went into a pizza restaurant to pick up an order that I had called in.
I paid by using my Visa Check Card which, of course, is linked directly to my checking Account.
The young man behind the counter took my card, swiped it, then laid it on the counter as he waited for the approval, which is pretty standard procedure.
While he waited, he picked up his cell phone and started dialing
I noticed the phone because it is the same model I have, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary.
Then I heard a click that sounded like my phone sounds when I take a picture.
He then gave me back my card but kept the phone in his hand as if he was still pressing buttons.
Meanwhile, I'm thinking:
I wonder what he is taking a picture of, oblivious to what was really going on.
It then dawned on me:
the only thing there was my credit card, so now I'm paying close
attention to what he is doing.. He set his phone on the counter, leaving it open.
About five seconds later, I heard the chime that tells you that the picture has been saved.
Now I'm standing there struggling with the fact that this boy just took a picture of my credit card.
Yes, he played it off well, because had we not had the same kind of phone,
I probably would never have known what happened.
Needless to say, I immediately cancelled that card as I was walking out of the pizza parlor
All I am saying is, be aware of your surroundings at all times.
Whenever you are using your credit card take caution and don't be careless.
Notice who is standing near you and what they are doing when you use your card.
Be aware of phones, because many have a camera phone these days.
FORWARD THIS TO AS MANY PEOPLE
AS YOU CAN THINK OF. LET'S GET THE WORD OUT! JUST BE AWARE
Never let your card out of your sight.....check and check again!
