Better and Worse


I ran across this old G-chat in a search today (hold that thought--isn't it creepy that our conversations are saved?), and I thought I'd share. Nothing groundbreaking, but I think it illuminates what our friends and family have known all along, and especially during that hellaciously fun period known as engagement--OPPOSITES ATTRACT. And don't worry, we won the contest. :)

March 2008...

me: yoohoo?
what's your social security number?
Dustin: hi
why do you need to know?
me: for the waiver thingie
Dustin: ehm
me: for the invite contest
Dustin: i don't understand why they need to know tho
me: i don't know
i think it's legit
weddingbee is the sponsor
Dustin: even so... what could they need it for
me: i don't know
Dustin: i just feel like if we don't need to give it to them, we shouldn't
... maybe i'm paranoid
me: dustin it's part of the contract
Dustin: :-/
me: they have a lawyer
don't make that face at ME! :)
Dustin: :)
me: <3
Dustin: i just would like to ask them if it's really necessary
me: oh my GOSH
we are going to be ELIMINATED unless we get it in by 9:00am
Dustin: Holly, it just doesn't seem like something i'd want to take a chance on
me: well they already have mine
Dustin: i don't mind telling you what it is... don't you feel like it's sketchy at all?
me: no, i really trust weddingbee (they have contests like this all the time, from really reputable companies like vera wang)
Dustin: i'm sorry for asking about it... i just don't hand it out ... especially for a contest like this when it doesn't seem like they'd need it
me: fair enough
i totally understand your suspicions
i thought of it too, but i decided all things pointed to legitimacy. i mean it's FREE INVITATIONS
Dustin: johnny was talking about how he was almost gypped and the whole process seemed so screwy and far-fetched, i couldn't believe that he came so close to losing TONS of money!
me: we're not giving them any money though. maybe i'll just leave that question blank.
