Ask The Eye Time For A Replacement

July 2, 2013

Dear Eye View

My girl friend and I have kids that are around the same age, and we both always buy birthday gifts for the other’s children. Recently, I gave my girlfriend’s daughter a gift for her birthday. The gift came from a store that only has a website—there is no brick and mortar store to return a gift to. About a week later, she contacted me to tell me that her daughter didn’t like the gift, so she sent it back, and she was upset that the company that I bought it from wouldn’t pay for the return postage. She told me that the next time she sees me, I can give her a check for the return postage, and also mentioned that, since her child is extremely hard to buy for, she doesn’t know what else I can give her. Is it my responsibility to pay for the return postage and also do I need to replace this gift for her child? If not, what can I say to her?

Dear F

I understand your concern. Not only should you not replace the gift you should replace the girlfriend. Keep it simple. Hope this helps.
