I'm getting to the point where I am feeling like the second half of the tri post is going to have to be, I went, I ran, I conquered. Time just is not a friend of mine since The Native's went back to school!
I don't know what my deal is but I have been on one lately. I think I need a time out. A big one!
Yesterday, after running The Native's here and there I came home to a pile of mail on the island. My three elementary age Native's had gotten the mail on their way home from school while I was off taking other Native's to the dentist.
As I looked through the mail I became instantly furious when I saw a catalog that I consider to be pornographic. I grabbed that catalog and the phone and went upstairs out of ear shot from The Native's and seeing blotchy purply red, dialed the number on the back of the catalog.
Blotchy purprle red isn't pretty. It got worse. Instead of an actual person on the other end of the phone I got a computer that wanted me to state my purpose and then I would be directed to the appropriate avenue that I needed. Each time the computer voice asked me a question my answer was more and more heated. NO, I did not want to place a flipping order, NO I did not want to request a catalog, etc. FINALLY, the computer gave me the option to speak to customer service. I growled CUSTOMER SERVICE into the phone and eventually got a real live person.
I told that person that I was ticked, I have told them in the past not to send me one of their catalogs and didn't appreciate them not honoring my request. The gal on the other end of the phone told me that she would make sure I didn't receive anymore catalogs and could I please give her the customer number on the back of the catalog.
I flipped the catalog over and......... it wasn't mine. It had been delivered to the wrong address. It was my neighbors!!!
I busted up laughing and explained the situation to the gal in customer service.
Puzzling. She didn't laugh. She didn't find the humor in the situation........
Side note: As we were leaving the dentist, Mr. J with his numb face started to whimper and whine and said, "I can't sneeze. My nose is too big......... "
