Saturday Stories

Story 1;

I love solar lights.  Seriously, I really really do.  It’s an addiction.  Slap the word solar on something and I’ll probably buy it. 

I ordered these:


Many many months ago.  I could not resist.  They were cheap, they were solar AND they changed colors.  And then the games began.

About every four weeks I get a card saying, "we’re sorry this item is backordered with no pending delivery date, would you like to cancel your order?"  Well, I said no, every time.  I knew I would never ever find 6 color changing solar lights that didn’t cost a fortune, ever again, and I figured I could wait as long as they let me.  Wasn’t hurting me any.

Guess what came yesterday!  Yay!  They are even better than I had hoped for. So of course, I immediately went online and ordered another set before they run out again.  My daughters thought on this will be fulfilled, Disco Yard.

Story 2;

When I moved offices a saleslady from Office Max called me.  I explained to her that I currently use Staples but that she was free to send me catalogs, I’m always on the lookout for good deals.  She did some prying and probing and found out that we had three offices.  So when she hung up with me, she started calling every number she could find, trying to get to our other offices.  Every number rang back to me.  Made me laugh.  Then she started calling me at least every two weeks to say hi.  She has been relentless. 

I really didn’t understand why, we just don’t order that much.  Until Friday.  When I got an Office Max catalog and looked at the address label.  Apparently she’s not to good with her customer database software.  In a space that I’m sure she thinks is note for company eyes only, but which in fact prints as the 2nd line of the address it now says " Has a Huge corporate office!  Good thing she didn’t write something ruder.  Learn your software people.
