I have had all three before 10:00am. First the good - I arrived at work this morning to find a small basket on my desk with money. At the beginning of this season's Survivor show we did an office pool. We paid money and drew names of the contestants. I have never watched the show but apparently my guy "Jud" won last night. That was a nice bonus. (It will buy a couple more bottles of wine LOL)
Then the first of the Monday Morning reports arrived at 8:42am - Bill again. But Dawn followed behind at 8:43am. She just missed the lead by a minute! I had ALL reports by 9:08am. My devious little plan is working!!
Now for the combo - this one is all three - good, bad and ugly! The receptionist called me to say I had a C.O.D. delivery at the front desk. That's odd because the only thing I was expecting was the much anticipated cutterhead but I had it delivered to my home address. Hmmmmm? I went downstairs and it was the cutterhead!! The joy of living in a small town - the delivery guy knew me so he brought it straight to my office.
Here comes the Bad and the Ugly part. I had to pay $60.11 to get the package!! OMG, I was not a happy camper. I have bought many things from the US and this has never happened. That is over 40% of the purchase price added on.
Arrgh! I am trying not to get so wound up about it. I think this is probably one of those situations where the seller tried to do the right thing to remedy the shipping error and I am hoping that she didn't realize I would be goudged on the the other end. But after all the hype, it is finally here and I am sour with it. Whoopie!!
UPDATE: It is worse than I thought. I just checked the paperwork and the shipper only listed the value of the item at $100 so I paid 60% on top of the purchase price. Arrrgh! Not a huge fan of UPS at the moment!!
