Here at Chez Insanity, we are not amused. The Christmas spirit is lacking. There is no ho in our ho ho ho. I had not expected this Christmas to be full of grins and giggles given that Mom passed away just three short months ago and Christmas was her favorite holiday. But a lot of people have it much worse than I so please, April, suck it up. However, the question still remains -
WHERE THE FUCK IS MY AMANDA DOLL?
I promised Savannah, my little 4 year old best friend an Amanda doll for Christmas. She's been wanting one for months but Amanda dolls, they're not so cheap. But hey, the number of people I *must* buy gifts for this year is ZERO. Shocking but true. I seem to have hermit-ed myself out of the Christmas gift giving tradition. I digress.
So ol' April orders an Amanda doll from WalMart.com. WalMart's carrier of choice is Fedex. The Fedex tracking system alerts me to the fact that Amanda will arrive between Thursday, 12/21 and Friday, 12/22.
I leave work at 1pm yesterday and come straight home to await the arrival of Amanda. And I wait. And then I wait a bit more. Then some more after that. At 7pm I check the computer and 'lo and behold, Fedex attempted to deliver Amanda at 4:46. Not only that, but they tried to deliver her on Wednesday as well. "Customer not home."
At this point let us note that my street has a North and a South designation. I am at the South end. It occurs to me that perhaps Mr. Fedex has been trying to deliver Amanda to the North end.
Bright and early this morning I am on the phone with Fedex. Today, a mere 72 hours before Christmas, the Fedex Representative tells me their tracking system is down. I explain the situation and how there will be one very sad 4 year old girl if Fedex doesn't come through for me. She assures me she'll get a message to the driver and straighten things out.
I wait. I wait some more. Little more waitin' going on. And some more after that.
At 3pm I check the computer. Mr. Fedex has tried to deliver Amanda TWICE today. "Customer not home." I get in my car and head North down my extremely long street to see if my street address exists at the other end and perhaps there's a call tag I can snag.
It doesn't exist.
Could someone please tell me where Mr. Fedex has been trying to deliver Amanda to?
