We’re waiting for a few tables to be delivered. Nothing major, but things are “on hold” without them. They were scheduled for delivery this afternoon between 1:00 and 5:00 PM.
You know where this is going.
Around 6:00 Helaine called me. “No tables,” though the website for the trucking company (not one of the major package delivery services) said “out for delivery.”
She called back fifteen minuets later. Frustrated she contacted the trucking company and was told the truck was in North Haven, running late because of traffic. Uh huh.
A few minutes later someone else called to say the tables wouldn’t be delivered today after all. The truck had actually broken down in West Haven.
So which is it? North Haven in traffic or West Haven with the hood up. Odds are neither is true!
Helaine spent the day tied to the house because she didn’t want to inconvenience the deliverymen. Who gives her back this wasted day? Who compensates her for her angst?
I hate when people lie.
