Ladies and gentlemen...I think I've been bit by a spider...and if you didn't know anything about spider bites, all you have to know is: THEY WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE! I got bit on my hand today at around 12pm today, and right now it's INFLAMED, RED, EXTREMELY PAINFUL, AND HAS A HOLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PUSSY (is that how you spell it or am I just perverted?) PIMPLE LOOKING THING!!!

From what I've seen on Discovery Health and Google, although the bites are not lethal, if not treated correctly, most patients will need to amputate the wounded area or get extremely disfigured... I don't want to scare myself, but I'm SERIOUSLY freaked out... I keep putting 93% alcohol on it to sanitize the wound so no bacteria doesn't get into the wound and cause severe infections. Please cross your fingers that I don't come back looking that I've had sulfuric acid poured all over me...

On another unpleasant note, I'M VERY DISSATISFIED WITH EDM'S CUSTOMER SERVICE. I placed an order 11 days ago, and according to their website, my order was "SHIPPED" 11 days ago. Guess what? I HAVEN'T RECEIVED ANYTHING! Nada! Zip! I emailed their CS regarding the issue, wondering when they shipped out the package, because, according to USPS, the tracking number EDM provided wasn't really a tracking number, but it was a delivery confirmation number. The status on the USPS website never changed, so I wanted to know when they sent out the package b/c it never takes more than 5 days for me to receive it before. I emailed them 5 days ago, but so far, no answer. I tried live chatting with the CS online, but they couldn't find out when my order was shipped. WTF?! @%^$#&^#%@#$!

I've always had AWESOME CS before, but I feel like after they launched the new site, their CS has gone down significantly. It's probably due to the high amount of order they are getting, but that's no excuse for the poor performance at handling issues. In my opinion, if you were going to expand your business, you better be damn sure that you are ready for it, because customers (like me) are vicious. Last time when I ordered, I was missing a WHOLE kit from the package, however, they sent me one right away! That's what I call efficiency. I admit, I'm being a little too critical, but we've all been spoiled by the high quality CS, so we want the best, we EXPECT the best. I've sent them an email again today to cancel my order since it's taking FOREVER, so we will see about that.

On a happier note, I've made an appointment to get my hair done tomorrow! YAY! My roots need to get done like nobody's business, and I need to get a trim (maybe a new style?). We'll see! I still haven't decided what color I want, I'm a little bored with auburn/red. W/E.

I'm sorry I'm in a pissy mood, it's been a rough day. I only got 3 hrs of sleep last night, so I'm going to bed stat! Good night y'all! I will update this tomorrow!

I've got bitten by a spider before on my knee. I couldn't walk for 2 weeks it was itchy and inflammed! I was lucky i went to see the doctor in time otherwise it would've gone down to my bone.

You need to go get it checked out!

Hope you get better soon :(

Angie said...

Aww, poor thing. You should see a doctor just in case babe! Hope it will get better for you soon! I'm surprised you're still up and typing :P. Sorry to hear about the crappy cs from EDM too. Hope your week will get better k!

Nikki said...

oh my gosh! how scary! you really do need to get that checked out if puss is coming out of it. i hope everything gets better.

and i TOTALLY know what youre talking about! EDM CS sucks BIG TIME. I remember ordering a kit in the middle of april and I didn't get it 'till Cinco de Mayo. I remember because I wore it that night. I was so frustrated during the whole waiting time. it's seriously ridiculous. AND i hate their new site. it's really cheasy and very cheap looking.
post pics of your new hair :)

omg i have spider phobia, i dont think i could cope a bite!! get better soon, i think you should goto the doc just in case ..!

Sorry to hear about your bad CS problem. They need to sort out their management. Good job i don need anything from EDM for a long long time!

Do have that bite checked out. At least if it's no big deal, you only lost the fee. It's better safe than sorry.

I've been lurking in your blog for awhile now.. I remember your post in MUA, glad to have stumbled on your blog.

EDM doesn't send shipping confirmation email right? I hate that cos I have to check on the website itself. But that sucks they can't even find your stuff.Hope it gets sorted out. Too bad for them they lost a makeup addict for a customer, you made a huge order for them!

Eeek Tao my love, go see a doctor even the quick check in check out clinics. I remember I watched an episode on tv where a lady got bit while she was asleep and now it scarred her entire arm! Get it treated baby doll :( <3

As for EM, I am peeved at them atm too! When they had their % off, they didn't deduct it :| They are so backed up I'm sure. Idk why they needed to renovate their site, the old one worked just fine, if not better!

One of my online friends recommended this to another and it really helped a lot. I think she's used it herself when bit by a brown recluse.

yes, I also think you should go see a doctor. There are many dangerous type of spiders out there. Especially, those black widow. People got killed because of it. So please go see a doctor. It's better to take precaution rather than being sorry later. I really hope you get better soon.

Aww Tao, I hope you get better soon! I'd get it checked out by a doctor just to be safe than sorry. :\

I haven't ordered from EDM in a while, but only because I'm backed up with mineral foundation as it is. Have you ever tried Alima? I like their foundations a lot better than EDM, even though it's a bit more expensive. Their CS is amazing, though!

I don't mind at all, girlie! Thanks
