Yesterday was the worst day I’ve had in a long time. While I was at work, someone smashed out the back window of my car (looks suspiciously like a hit-and-run by a ladder, don’t you think)?
In a completely-separate-but-equally-awful moment (unrelated to the car), I also discovered that a $500 Hyatt gift card I ordered was gone. When I opened the envelope to remove the card, it simply wasn’t there – it had been ripped off the paper backing.
Wow. Coming home last night felt like I had walked into an evil surprise party.
And Josh is traveling right now, so I’m flying solo with the kids, which just added a layer of complexity to an already-complicated evening: trying to simultaneously get homework done, make dinner, and find a shop to fix the glass first thing in the morning was not an easy feat.
After dinner, I called the Hyatt gift card customer service center. They were REALLY nice, but they basically said…sorry. Apparently gift cards are like cash, and if you lose them, you are likely out of luck.
I’m going to follow up with everyone I can, and hopefully someone at Hyatt can help me (Hyatt, are you reading this?), but wow…$500 and a car window, all in one night?
Since #ThrowbackThursday is tomorrow, I’m just going to say it…
“Calgon, Take Me Away!”
Does anyone have experience with lost Hyatt cards? Or did anyone else have a really bad day yesterday?
