The topic: It pays to do the right thing

----------------------------------------------

We don't use landlines for our home and business phones. We use Magic Jacks. lisaviolet designs uses a Magic Jack connected to the computer, the other two are Magic Jack Plus, that run from the router and a electric connection. The adapters for the MJ+s, because they get so warm/hot, die on a fairly regular basis. MJ (the company) does not sell these adapters. You get one replacement and that's it. 

I found that the adapter for my Kindle works. I found these on eBay a few years ago and bought five. We've used those. Last month, I bought some adapters on eBay that said they work with iPad, iPhone, Kindle, and various other products, one of which is the MJ+. They were about a dollar each and came in quantities of ten. Free shipping. I bit.

Horrible. They do NOT work with the MJ+, there is a horrendous buzzing noise on the phone. I contacted the seller, he said to mail them back. I was going to until I realized I'd be out the shipping and the cost of a mailer. Why bother, right?

So, I bought adapters from a different seller. Same problem. She refunded my entire payment and said to just keep the adapters. Nice.

Then I bought official Kindle adapters from a seller from Pennsylvania. They were over twice the cost of the adapters that didn't work, but we need these. No phone, no business.

Then last week I scored that iPad mini in that Fukubukuro box. I can use those other adapters now. I contacted the seller who had refunded my money and told her that I would be sending her payment. And I did.

She was confused and I explained the situation to her and told her that since I could use them now, it was only right that I pay for them. 

She's sending me a case for my iPad. No charge. Because I was so honest.

I told you she was nice.

lisaviolet is sixty something, married with no kids, takes care of lots of cats, likes taking photographs, loves Southern California weather and spends altogether too much time avoiding her responsibilities.

In her spare time, she makes pretty things to sell in her store.
