Oooops :X

Have you ever sent messages (emails or SMS) to the wrong person accidentally? I have. Most of the time, it is nothing serious or embarrassing. But once, things could have turned out bad when a complaint meant to be sent to my sister about my not liking my boss' management style got sent to him! I only realised it when he called me in for a discussion. I don't know what look I had plastered on my face then! 

Recently, I complained on my blog about the ezilink card refund which, by the way, I have not received. I intended to complain to my sister about it. Here is the actual email:

Dear Ms ,

We have received your email.

We would like to inform you that previous when you activated the EZ-Reload facility by GIRO, there was a deposit. Since you have terminated the facility, we are currently in the process of refunding the deposit into your GIRO account. The refund process will take about 2 months. Meanwhile, your EZ-Link card will not be able to apply for any EZ-Reload service until the deposit is refunded. Alternatively, you may use another EZ-Link card to apply for the EZ-Reload facility using your credit card.

We appreciate your kind patience and understanding.

Best Regards,

Masita Mohamad

if u have ANZ, it's worth using it to auto credit your ezilink card. cos the rebate of 5% is more than the transaction fee.

stupid ezilink.
i already deactivated giro link then applied for ez-reload but their response is that my card is already linked.

Wahhh...who is this sister of yours that you mention a number of times in your blogs and who is so wise and able to resolve matters like a complaints bureau? Why dont you get her to contribute to your blogs (or better still start her own blogs) so that we can gain from her wisdom? hehe

So Yu-Kym

I guess from your report, EZ link is giving you a refund although it takes some time.

So they are not getting away with it then?

If so, I retain my faith in the integrity of our Singapore system to put things right when things appear unethical, illogical or insensible.

Well almost. Life can be sometimes unfair and cruel. You cannot always win. And sometimes one always lose. Like that poor fella Con-Mic.

I wish he be given a chance to have a happy life and not feel so much angst, ingratitude and envy and cursing everyone all the time. He deserves a break. Poor fella down and out all the time tsk tsk lol
