I recently had a "situation" with adam & eve... I've never purchased anything from them. Ever. But I recently set up an account there as I was thinking I might try a couple of things that I've seen there that I haven't found anywhere else. I know they do a lot of e-mail advertising, in that I get multiple emails from them every single day, trying to tempt me with different offers. I will admit, getting several a DAY is a bit annoying, but whatever... I just delete them. I never at any time though approved that they could send something to my home.
I got a letter from them a couple of weeks ago, and to say that it was the polar opposite of discrete is being NICE. Big black bold letters were printed across the front, informing me on the COVER of the envelope where everyone could read, that I'm behind in a layaway payment, and to hurry up and finish paying off my total so they can send me my items. They even listed a bogus amount remaining of like $89 and change with a return address listed as being themselves and their trademark symbol printed in several locations all over the envelope. Nothing about this was even remotely discreet. And what was worse, is that there was no layaway payment to be made. This was not a bill like it was made out to be. I tear it open and just find a single sheet advertisment for the website feat. a girl on her hands and knees with her ass pointed at the camera, and a coupon for 30% off my next visit to the site. That's it. I don't even think adam & eve even HAS a layaway program.
... But try explaining that to my sister who is the one that picked up the mail. My sister, who refuses to buy a vibrator and would probably have a heart attack and think I needed to be committed if she knew I liked anal toys and being tied up.
She knows I have toys and I write reviews and whatnot, but I don't exactly elaborate past that, as the whole thing makes her very uncomfortable despite several attempts on my part to change her mind.
But seriously, my sister and I are currently sharing a large house while I help her raise her three boys, one of which is a 16 year old teen. This kind of letter ticks me off. What if one of them had seen it??? Never mind trying to explain it to them, everyone is rather tight-knit on our street. Everyone knows everyone and everyone's kids all play together and there is an open door policy on pretty much every house. Which means kids of all ages and coming and going all the time as are their parents.
This to me, was just unacceptable on SO many levels.
