Oh My Gawd Sodagirl!
2 Weeks.

December 28, 2005

I got a call from Sears on Dec 23rd, telling me that a parcel is in for my son. Super. I ask the lady on the other end of the talkbox if it’s at the **** location. She informs me that it’s not. It’s at the downtown location. Well now, that’s a problem because we aren’t downtown and nor will we be downtown anytime soon especially 2 days before Christmas. I ask her if they could send it up to the location near my home…the location it was supposed to be shipped to in the first place. She tells me it can be. Oh my gawd, be still my heart. Perfect.

I asked her how long it would take. A day? Two days? Maybe 3 or 4 since it’s right before Christmas? Nope. Three strikes and you’re out. It’s going to take 2 WEEKS. Two weeks? Ummm that’s 14 days. It takes about 20 minutes to drive from my house to downtown, give or take. And this lady is telling me it would take 2 freakin’ weeks to come from DT to where I am? Wow.

They could put a stamp on it and ship it the slowest possible way and it will still take A DAY to come from downtown. Not 14 days people. They could strap it to Tommy the turtle and put him up a hill with cold molasses smeared on his feet and the fucking turtle could still manage to get it from downtown to here in less than 2 weeks. That’s ridiculous.

I asked her if she was joking. She said no, she wasn’t joking. I said I would pay the shipping from there to here. Oh there was no need for that, but it would still take 2 weeks. How? How is that possible? Are they going to leave it on the shelf for, say, 12 days of fermenting and then ship it out on day 13 and I get it on day 14? Oh no, she tells me, they wouldn’t leave it there, they would get it out the next day for sure but it would still take 14 days. Okay, maybe I’m dense here but how the hell could it possibly take 2 fucking weeks to get from downtown to here if they sent it out tomorrow? I’m not getting it. Are they sending it by horse and buggy? And the horse has no legs and the buggy has no wheels? Help me here. Throw me a bone. Something.

She asks me what I wanted to do, so I ponder this for a moment and then I tell her we’ll send our 5 year old to walk down and get it. Because even though she’d most likely get lost along the way, I know she could eventually get there, get the package and get back home long before 2 weeks is up. Thanks Maddy…..see you in a day or two.

Can I just say……abso-freakin-lutely ridiculous? Two weeks. Ya. Right. Give me a break. Please.
