I got ahold of a ruler from one of my coworkers and measured up my hands while I had a customer service representative from IMAK on the phone with me. She was very polite and friendly, although I wasn't sure she understood the question I was asking about sizing. I don't feel too bad, though, since she told me that the office receives a dozen of calls a week with questions about sizing. What did leave me with a good feeling about my purchase is that she assured me that if for any reason I wasn't happy with the size I had, or with the product in general, I could return it for an exchange or a refund. That's reassuring to hear and left me feeling a lot less worried about this purchase.
The order wasn't cheap, but then I didn't order just the Smart Gloves to wear while typing at home and at work. I also ordered two Adjustable Pil-O-Splints to wear while I'm asleep. My hope is that if I treat my hands nicely at night as well as during the day I might start to feel less like I need to take a chainsaw to them when I get up each morning.
So I've followed through on the promise I've made, and in doing so I've taken one chore down from the list of things I need to accomplish. That leaves four more to go for today! I still need to:
Get a haircut
Take clothes to the dry cleaners for a clean, press and starch
Vacuum the floor in my bedroom
Do at least one load of laundry so I have dress socks.
That last one baffles me. I've bought hundreds of dress socks over the last two years or so. Where do all these damn things keep going? Are some gnomes sneaking into my chest of drawers each night and snatching these things, or what?
