Friday Surprise!

The week is about to end. Another day marked off my dwindling life.. I am getting very miserly with my time these days and I don’t like wasting any of it. I like it even less when someone else wastes it for me. There comes a day when you start parsing it out in Nano seconds. I had a second grade teacher that always had a Friday surprise. So far today I have had no surprises.. have you?

  1. My surprise…..a second sewing machine delivery.

    I wanted to make mask so maybe a month ago I ordered a simple basic sewing machine. I had given mine away years ago. I didn’t want anything too big or too fancy because I was just going to make face mask. But when the machine arrived it was having issues sewing over the elastic band part. I had to keep rethreading and thought….I could have hand sewn this faster. So I packed it up and was going to send it back when they contacted me and said they would refund me but they did’nt want the machine back. I could throw it away or donate it. So I ordered another machine.I wasn’t going to …figured so many people were making mask that I would just order some. But I had already ordered all the supplies for the mask that I better just make them. Plus…it was a project that would occupy some of my “lockdown” time. The second machine arrived a few days ago. It’s a Singer…a little bigger and it works like a charm. Mind you…sewing machines are sold out everywhere so I felt lucky to find it.
    Well….I look out on my porch and there is a box. It’s a second Singer sewing machine.
    I checked my order email and it was just one machine I ordered. I checked my account and no second charge. I tried calling a few times….I don’t know why I bothered because I tried calling a few weeks ago for a curbside pick up and no one answered I tried calling for 3 days and no one answered. I even drove there and the line was around the building. SO I did’nt get my order and they emailed me to let me know they were putting my order back and I would’nt be charged. So if they did’nt answer then…why would they answer now. I tried the 800 number…..nothing. So I sent them an email and will wait for a response.
    So now I have 3 sewing machines.
    Yeah….not a fun exciting surprise….but a surprise.

  2. oh this is good.. you could start a small cottage industry and hire a couple of employees and then you would be eligible for PPP monies..

  3. I’ve heard others stories about online orders that had to be sent back and the customer was told to keep the product and they wouldn’t be charged … but I must say, three sewing machine delivered to the same address is a bit much. ๐Ÿ™‚ All-in All, that was quite a surprise. I think it is important to look each day for a nice surprise … to expect one, in fact … it doesn’t have to be anything spectacular … just something that will give us reason to smile and take notice. As a society of people, I feel most of us take our daily dose of surprises for granted … and sadly to say, we do not deem the little ones as ‘a surprise’ at all. So far today, I have been surprised by a $85.00 discount in my auto insurance, discovered that my Thoughts.com account was still open ( haven’t used it in quite some time ๐Ÿ™‚ and I was also surprised when I found pictures of old classmates in my Inbox that I hadn’t checked in over a month or so. ๐Ÿ™‚ … Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! ๐Ÿ™‚
