I could see this.

Rather, I could see suit brought against NM for allowing this kind thing.

She wants to keep the cookie recipe, though.

Allowing a personal shopper to have a relationship with a customer. It is a serious conflict of interest.

I really think auto-starting audio and video needs to be submitted with a NSFW tag. When I'm pretending to work, the last thing I want is to alert the entire office that I'm goofing off on Fark. Slideshows get warnings--so should this crap.

I was actually surprised when I got to the part where it said that the personal shopper was still employed at that store too. Particularly for such a high end store you'd think they'd pitch her out if they caught wind of that kind of indiscretion.

I'm kind of surprised the divorce attorney for the wife didn't simply say OK this 1.4 million worth of crap will be part of your assets hubby. And let him deal with trying to return it to NM. He bought it, he spent the $ it should be his burden to deal with at the very least.

If his name is on the account it's his account just as much as it is hers. That's how it works. If that isn't the case, he is in for a deep farking with no happy ending this time.

I wonder what her commission was? If the gifts weren't suitable to the wife's tastes she should not get her percentage and she is a lousy personal shopper.

FTA: The real villain in this case is Neiman Marcus

Not the cheating husband, not the gold-digging salesgirl, not the wife who KEPT the (unwanted?) gifst. Got it, it's the retail chain.

Walker spent $100,000 per year before her accident at the retailer. Her husband's spending on her account outpaced her spending by hundreds of thousands of dollars, Ticer said.

I think they both should have an "accident".

"It's a sad story about breach of trust and profits over people," Ticer said.

A fairly reasonable point by her lawyer...until I read this:

Yeah...cry me a river. Capitalism can be cruel.

The store's return policy had a key word "timely," which 3 years is not.
 
2012-05-31 02:52:46 PM
Wait, if most of the stuff the personal shopper bought isn't to the wife's taste, then isn't that well within the parameters of NM's return policy? It's not to her taste, she's not happy with it, and under NM's policy, that means she should be able to return it, no questions asked.

Also, can I just say that any lady who is spending $100K/year on NM can be my sugarmomma until I find a job that will pay me (currently working an unpaid internship). I'm not proud, and I'm surviving on less than $13K a year, which if you're spending $100K on NM, will be a drop in the bucket of your overall expenses.

Two reasons:

1. some of it is THREE years old
2. 1.4 MILLION dollars, spent over three years - their accountants would kill them

1.4 million dollars, he love her TOO much.
 
2012-05-31 03:21:07 PM
I think she's got a suit against NM and the personal shopper. How can NM prove that it wasn't the affair that was the cause of the over run? Seems to me that either the husband bought more to help his honey's commissions or the honey used her 'feminine wiles' to get him to spend more. Either way, it wasn't the wife's fault she was the recipient of 1.4mil worth of goods. Either NM is held responsible for unethical employee conduct that impacts a customer's finances or as suggested earlier that the 1.4mil be transferred as a debt to the husband to deal with.

Heh. My cousin worked as a personal shopper for a few months for "Needless Markup". And she's Asian.

No, she didn't have any affair with any client. Not that I know of.

Please continue with your mildly racist thread.

Those aren't good reasons at all... now, if she had wanted to return them out of spite...

I hate shopping. I wish I can afford a personal shopper. Actually, I don't want to interact with a personal shopper either, as that too is like shopping itself. I want to step into a body scanning machine once and then every 4-6 months or so, have a new outfit in my size magically appear in my closet and my credit card charged, without ever talking to a sales person or look through a catalog trying to figure out the stupid sizing charts which are different in every catalog.

/Yes, I'm a woman. I still hate shopping. I have anything else to do.
