Dear Barbra-the lady holding my circle journal hostage

Please contact us again regarding the status of our circle journals.
I am getting sick and tired of being a broken record and asking for
some communication from you. I realize that life issues have come up, but
give me a freaking break, you have had my journal for over a year now,
and I'm sure that the other two journals were not too far behind. When
you came on here back in June or July of last year and promised to get
them mailed out within two weeks, all was good, I had no problem with
it, and I wasn't mad about it. I wasn't even mad, that you tried to say
you were holding on to the journal because I was behind (sorry I forgot
to take the circle journal to the hospital to finish it while I
delivered my baby). I did have that journal out before my baby was 2 months
old. You however, have continued to hold onto my journal and my baby is
now 15 months old! Approximately 3 weeks ago, you promised to mail my
journal on to Laura the very next day and then the other two would
follow in a couple of days. You have not said a word since. You have
been asked over and over for confirmation that you sent it on, but yet
not one word. There are more important things in my life to worry
about, but now that this has gotten beyond rediculous, it's now the point
of the matter. You have shown no respect to anyone of the people you
are holding journals hostage from. You are not showing any respect for
the people who are waiting for the journals to arrive from you so they
can complete their commitment. I'm sorry if things are rough for you
right now, but all I'm asking for is a little communication and a little
get of your butt and mail the journals. So, please for the love of
pigs that fly ( which is when pigs fly is when I think your going to mail
my journal), please communicate and let us know what is going on. I
don't know what to do next, but I've decided that I'm not giving up on
getting my journal back. I'm going to keep hounding you and if I have to
go beyond this board to get it back. I know you haven't been posting on
the 2peas board, but I'm no longer feeling like this should remain
private. If you can't tell, I'm really pissed now.

Waiting for pigs to fly,


Thanks readers for letting me vent in public!

Hey Laurie,

I'm in the same situation with my circle journal. Apparently, Karen has mine along with 5 others. We actually finally went to 2Peas and posted to see if anyone knew her. We did receive response and we got other people involved now too. Since Karen won't communicate with us, she does communicate with our 2Peas contact so hopefully we'll find out something soon. Karen has also mentioned that she mailed all of them out to the next person. However, she won't tell us who she mailed it too. Just goes to show how far people don't respect others. I wish you the best in getting your journal back. Hopefully sooner than when pigs fly. =)

Oh my goodness! I read the Missing Journals over on the boards and was shocked. I can understand even a few months behind (things happen) but dannnnnnnng, for over a year?! Horrible. I have never joined a circle before just because of this reason, too scary.

I hope it gets to you and the other members soon!

Lara said...

Even if you sent this freak a postage-paid envelope, I bet she'd still not return it.

What a freakin' loser! When you finally do get your CJ back, tear out her page...if she ever completed it.

Hillary said...

Yikes. I would be POd too. You go girl!!

Becky said...

What a waste of time!!! Poor you, I hope you get your cj back soon. I just can't stand people like her. People that commit to something and don't follow through even after months and months!!!

I am so sorry for you guys - this is why I won't do the Circle Journal thing. Every time I have tried it's a bad situation.

Wow. This sucks. I am invovled in an awesome CJ group right now. I *hope* nothing like this happens!! Good luck!

Nanner said...

I understand your frustration! I am in my very first CJ which started last August and my journal is still with the SAME girl! I even passed another journal on to her and she still has that one too! I also work with her and bug her all the time and she never has returned them to me or mailed them on. It has been 6 months so far. I hope that you do somehow get your CJ back! Hopefully pigs will fly soon! :-)
