Since I have started working full time again I haven't had the time to browse the shops for Christmas presents like I have in the past. This combined with being able to afford more by shopping online I decided to purchase Marias present online. For obvious reasons I cannot say what I have picked out but due to the ohh so helpful people at the courier company I might as well type all the details on here in text you can read from the other side of the room.
On the first deliver attempt there was no one home, just a card left saying they had tried. Due to the hours I was working I wasn't able to call them before Maria rang but since it was only to re-arrange delieverly I didn't see any problem with that. Oh how wrong could I be. Maria enquired about the size of the package so she could discover if it would fit in her cycle basket and could be sent to work or if it had to be sent directly home instead. An innocent question which lead an attack of verbal diarrhea from the lady on the helpdesk. Before Maria could get a word in the lady had spouted the size of the package its weight, the company it had come from and a guess from the lady of what she thought it was.
Sometimes I despair
