S&T 4/14: The Final One!
+I planned on a blog post yesterday (of the what-I-wore variety), but my Tuesdays, ironically, look a lot like they did two years ago, so that did NOT happen. Just add in two dog walks per day and a 30 minute commute and it's pretty much the same.
+Last week, I made fun of people for not being able to spell. After a Skype snafu over the weekend, Scott sent me this and said he couldn't find me on Skype because I had three accounts and, on one, my name was spelled wrong.
He wanted me to point out that I, too, make mistakes. But I think that was just a fluke. Because I do somehow have three Skype accounts and that's probably because I couldn't remember passwords or something and I just created another one as a solution.
We could also point out his sentence structure errors in that conversation, but apparently nothing like that counts in text messages.
+I've been super crabby all week. Short with coworkers, impatient with strangers, etc. I realized after a few days that it's because I have a book hangover. I just finished 13 audiobooks in a row and now I don't know what to do with my life. It's kind of awful. I just feel kind of confused about everything right now.
+I've been ordering from chewy.com for over a year now and this crabby feeling was just amplified on Tuesday when I tried to order more dog food. I have an autoship set up, but I go in and re-order manually because, like I said, I have trouble with things like this.
When I clicked to ship, I got this.
It was just one more thing I couldn't cross off of my to-do list for whatever reason and was very upsetting. It seems like for everything I cross off, two more things need to be added.
I contacted customer service and they were wonderful, explaining that the food had been discontinued in that size and I was all why-doesn't-it-just-tell-me-that-in-the-error-message???
And they were nice and sent four 6-pound bags at the same price of the 24-pound one, but now I have to find a new dog food.
Anyway, they were too nice because I wasn't very nice in my initial email. But holy cow did I appreciate that. I needed to see the "peace, love, and pugs" signature line on a Tuesday morning because it made Tuesday a little less terrible (if that's possible).
So, gold star to chewy.com (as Gretchen Rubin would say).
+And just for fun, here is the first Stuff and Things link-up post I did two years ago.
Since this is the last Stuff and Things link-up, I do want to thank you all for your participation over the last few years. And thank you to Joey for being such a great friend and doing this link-up with me! My blog, God-willing, isn't going anywhere, but Thursdays will be my own again.
Cheers to almost-Friday!
