Then a part time job that became eleventy million hours of customer service hell intervened.
Nothing quite like hours of being yelled at for things that are not your fault to make you not really like people much. Like say you ordered something 3 weeks ago and just now got a free shipping coupon good for the next 2 days & want to apply that to your 3 week old order, (which really? who does that?) but we don’t back date our coupons more than 48 hours so you cuss me out and then think threatening to send all your stuff back is going to change the policy. I know full well you are highly unlikely to do that & even if you do you aren’t going to get those shipping costs back so whatever, go ahead, send it back and reorder it using the free shipping code. You’ll also be out $6.95 per box because that is what we charge for using our return labels. You do the math.
So much holiday spirit this year.
Mostly I like our customers, but holiday time seems to bring out the unreasonable in people.
On the upside I am constantly being complimented by people with Polish last names on my ability to pronounce them.
In other news that ongoing story about the Wizard & the Gang of 3 or 4 (now down to 2 or 3) and the Chosen One finally came to a conclusion!
Or did it?
After the pages and pages of choice were issued diving the kingdom between the factions the now Very Un-Plucky Band of Adventurers had hope! It lasted all of 48 hours before the Gang decided it wasn’t going to work for them and they were going to take action to move on the Wizard. But the Wizard didn’t even give it 24 before he started scheming to bit off parts of the Gang’s territory & got the jump on them and now we are all starting back down the road that led to the need of Chosen One in the first place.
But the Kingdom lurches on anyway. Like it always does.
Saturday begins baseball season!
We are currently 1 inch into a snowstorm that is supposed to dump 4-8 inches of snow by the time it’s done.
I did manage to finish Project Life 2014 and get my book printed!
And I am currently working on this year’s, though I changed the look up a tiny bit.
I’m hoping to get back into blogging more. I’ve just been kind of blah lately & hiding in books. There’s been nothing particularly interesting happening here with Havoc & Mayhem the last couple of months, just video games.
I’m packing up the dinos this week.
Not all of them.
I’ll leave a few out
Not for the boys, but for me.
Because I’m not ready to let go yet.
