A Fine Dusting of Pollen

Posted by Erik Sternberger at

The weather has been so nice lately—now that it has finally stopped raining—so I wanted to eat dinner outside last night, but our entire metal patio table was coated in yellow dust. At first, I was afraid that the winter cover had leaked and it had rusted until I realized that it was pollen. Imagine this COVERED in pollen. But, apparently not before I had touched my eye, which became a race against time to get my contact out before my eye was swollen shut.

The Results are In!

Okay, maybe that title is a little fancy—or maybe Tolkein sounding—but 'tis the season for gift returns. Now, when it comes to gift returns, most of us are returning terrible sweaters or the combination mango/avocado slicer we didn't ask for, it got us thinking of filters. (We ARE the filter-guru after all.)While we strive for 100% accuracy sometimes things happen. A wrong size is ordered, a package doesn't arrive or is damaged, or for some reason, the wrong product was delivered. We handle our own returns at Filter-Guru and we try to do it as quickly and as efficiently as possible, but there are ways...
