My Picture of the Day #9 is of my Stampin’ Up! box that was supposed to be delivered Friday by 10:30 (via UPS).
This is a funny story but it may come off as a little snarky … or I should say ” I see the humor in it now but not at the time!
I ordered some Stampin’ Up! card stock overnight (and a few other things like ribbon) … and it was supposed to be at my house by 10:30am. By 6:30pm the entire house was sick of me saying “where is UPS?” plus I had a live stream at 7pm. I was not happy to say the least!!!
At 6:45pm I hear the truck that I had been listening for all day … but guess what … he drives right past my house. Holy cow I almost had a cow! It was 8 degrees outside and I went running out (no jacket or sweater) like a crazy person! He had stopped four houses up to deliver a package. And… I like a crazy person kept yelling “hello, Hello, Mr UPS, hello .. hey you, hello! Finally he heard me … as well as probably all our neighbors. I yelled that I was expecting a package (four houses up) and he heard me and said let me look. Lo and behold my box was on there. hmmmmm I was nice to him… believe it or not .. but I really wanted to stomp my feet and have a tantrum. When I share this story with my daddy … either he or I will say “this happens to us to give us something to talk about” as if we need anything to talk about!!
The picture below is blurry … sorry!! But this is where I stood as I was yelling nicely to the UPS driver….I guess we could say it’s a good thing I grew up on a 50 acre farm 🙂 By the way I didn’t walk up there because our street was all ice, I would have fallen for sure!
The picture does show the distance and doesn’t it look really cold out??
Fast forward by three days… you do not want to hear that the paper was cut incorrectly…. I’m not even going there!!!
I’m not sure this is what I envisioned when I started the Picture of the Day … but hopefully you find it entertaining or helpful!
Have a good night!
