Walked into a hostile situation this morning. I decided to be the sacrificial lamb, no matter the cost.   Asked raging lady if their was an office where we could have a conversation.  

While driving thru a less than desirable neighborhood today, I decided to hit the McDonald's drive thru for some McNuggets.   While a coworker and myself were I enjoying our processed myster

Not familiar with that brand, but I know Chewy was not doing free shipping on cat litter for a period of time.  They were goofy when it WAS shipping since they would actually box the pail of litter and contributed to some broken pails due to how heavy boxes sometimes get treated by the carriers.  I shifted to Target which was basically the same price and could deliver the same day for free...they just stick the shipping label on the pail.

Try PetSmart or PetCo. They deliver too.

Petsmart treats members always receive free standard shipping on orders over $49. I used their free shipping once and I recall a Uber driver delivered a large bag of dog food and large cat litter. After that I just do in store pickup.

The birthday present we sent to our grandson via UPS has not shown up but I have a message from UPS stating it was delivered yesterday.

 

Opened up a claim but still feel very disappointed. This is my first time experiencing a lost package. :-{

So far two times, UPS updated the package delivered and it was delivered the next day. Or porch pirates.. one of the two...

If CV is his neighbor, the odds are extremely high the package was taken by a porch pirate and is currently sitting on CV's kitchen table.

"Supposedly" the package showed up the following day. Not sure if I believe the household member but at least it has arrived.

Really?!  That's exactly what I was told that the package arrived a day after text message delivery confirmation. Squirrely.

I suspect the driver took the route but too busy to deliver, so they updated as delivered

I ordered a docking station for my new MacBook Pro. After waiting two weeks of "please check back tomorrow" I finally checked with the vendor. UPS "lost" the shipment at their Chicago hub. So the vendor sent me another docking station. This one ended up at the Chicago hub as of last Thursday, and tonight I get a message that it is now sitting in Las Vegas at a UPS facility there.

 

At least its not sitting on a cargo ship just offshore of Long Beach.

So much for what I had planned for today.

 

American Airlines cancels more than 600 flights on Sunday

 

I'm confirmed on alternate flights tomorrow, however there is something funky with the reservation and I can't print my second boarding pass.

 

The Executive Platinum desk usually answers calls immediately.  When I called in for help with my boarding pass, the hold time / wait for a callback was between 3:48 and 4 hours.  

 

I wasn't aware of the mass cancelations when I called, or I wouldn't have called.  :)

Somehow a toad found its way into our house.

 

And that isn't a metaphor.

 

The toads here are poisonous, fatally so to dogs.  We have a protocol, approved by the FL Fish & Wildlife Commission, on how to humanely euthanize them.  

 

It involves freezing them for 3 days.

 

Sigh.

You PRINT your boarding passes?   Like, out on paper?!?

Freezing my dog for three days would probably be my last resort.

This defaults to "Shift cells right" on my Windows laptop, but on my iMac the default is "Shift cells down."

 

I never want to shift cells right, and some consistency would be nice.
