The other day I decided I needed a MacBook case. If I'm going to be traveling this summer at all, I just need more protection. I mean, this is what happens to it in my own living room.
So, I get on Amazon and find a case and put it in the cart but, as I'm apt to do, I wait before I order. I like the anticipation of having goodies in the carts on various websites more than I actually like ordering the various items. Two days later, I went back to order it and it was gone. I put another one in the cart and ordered it. Bam. Done.
That night, Scott and I were Skyping and he said he'd been nice and ordered me the things I had in the Amazon cart. That made me do a double-take and say Oh! That's where my stuff went! No wonder it wasn't in the cart when I went back.
And then I told him that I ordered the case too. I looked at the return options and it would cost me almost as much to return it as the actual price of the case.
He told me to get my own Amazon account. I DO have my own account for Kindle and Audible purposes, but his has the Prime attached to it. I'm not giving up free shipping by utilizing my own account (uh, or my own credit card).
When I told my coworker I had two MacBook cases now, she said that was good in case I lose one.
As I mentioned, I don't lose things.
