As many of you know, I was very excited about an upcoming workshop through Loose in the Lab. I was so excited, in fact, that I was traveling to Lexington (almost 3 hours) during my Spring Break. I left my home at 4:30 am to get to the workshop on time. I had to find a babysitter for the entire day 4:30 am to 8pm and you can only imagine the price of gas. I showed up at the cenvention center at approximately 7:50 and eagerly waited...and waited...and waited...and waited along with 7 other teachers. Finally, a representative from the center asked us what we were there for and she replied by saying that they had cancelled weeks ago due to small participation. I immediately called the tool free number for loose in the lab and was told they did not open until 10:30 (my time). I drove an hour to my in-laws and waited until 10:30, called and gave them a piece of my mind. She tried to say that they had e-mail us...no e-mails. Their website did not say it was cancelled and two of the people who were there said they registered this past Monday and no one said anything to them about it being cancelled! They tried to offer me the kit for $75 and refund the rest of the $180 that I originally paid. Who is going to refund the gas money, the baby sitter, and my wasted time?!? I declined and suggested they give me the kit for my wasted time and money that they can't refund! I am still waiting to hear on their decision but it did not sound promising. Can you believe this? Please, if you were planning on attending or purchasing anything from Loose in the Lab, DON'T!! I am making it a personal mission to inform as many people about this as possible. If they think losing $75 by giving me a free kit will hurt them financially, I hope I sway a few people to not go to their workshops ($180) or purchase their products!!
