This subject just fell into my lap. I was unsure what to write about and then this happened. I am going to my daughter’s house for a little Superbowl get together. I am meeting her future in-laws for the first time. So, I really want everything to go well. I am a bit nervous about it, but now I am pissed!
Last week on the 24th I called our local grocery store to order a vegetable tray and a fruit tray – a little healthy food beyond the junk food associated with the day. I had a bad feeling so on the 31st I called to confirm my pick-up time for today. They did not have the order! I explained again what we wanted, and he said it would be ready at noon.
Today about 12:30 my boyfriend went to pick it up. They didn’t have it! He called to tell me this and I was livid! He said he was getting a manager to speak to, and he would try to work it out. So, I sat and stewed about it. Until I saw him pull in the driveway and get the trays out of the back seat. Instead of being under my last name it was under my first. What a monumental F-up! But it all worked out in the long runs or, as they say, all’s well that ends well!
