“Double Standards”

Words are dried up, I’m at a loss,

To describe how you cheated me, matt is not gloss,

You promised me one thing, delivered another,

An inferior substitute, you mother sufferer.

You brushed off my efforts to address the matter,

You PayPals hush money, ensuring disaster,

My claim is declined on the frailest of posits,

Protection my arse, they have you in their pocket!


Please excuse my enthused rage, but I hate being cheated, I hate repeating myself, and I hate being ignored! 😡 (Deep breath) 😂 I was recently ripped off by a crooked company called Choices4Today (parent company – Storm Media Ltd), selling shoddy goods!

I saw their advert on Instagram for a product my Wife would’ve loved for Christmas, so I purchased it in November using PayPal, but what came was something WAY inferior, that didn’t even remotely match the images or description, so I contacted the company immediately.

They fobbed me off with “thanks for your feedback, it will help us with future orders”, but wouldn’t send me what I actually ordered, or give me a refund! 4 times I contacted them, same response each time, so I went to Shopify, who directed me to PayPal.

After another month of the company not responding, I filed a claim, well yesterday, PayPal sided with the crooks, declining my claim, because apparently, “warm fleece-lined leggings” costing £15, and thin misshapen tights worth about £3 are too similar! …PayPal, you suck! (Deep breath) Vent over! 😂😂🤣🤣

So, what’s gotten under your skin recently, that’s made you want to Hulk out?

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
