I am not a big fan of Jewelry. But for a Christmas vacation how about something that’s really Christmassy and lights up? Right? I thought that would add some style to our holiday vacation. So I went ahead and ordered these from Amazon. Initially, I thought it would be just ‘us’ wearing these and walking around the parks. Err.. who knew! There were a bunch of people. Kids and Adults alike. All were wearing these with pride. They were even selling mickey-shaped-Christmas-lights-necklace in the parks.
So coming back to my story, I ordered these 3 days prior to our trip. We were leaving on December 21st. I placed the order on the 18th. And Amazon promised to deliver these on the 20th.
On 20th morning, as soon as I woke up, I was impatient. You know one of those days where you are excited for something to happen? Only in this case I was waiting for my order to be delivered. I knew I had to wait till the evening.
I had got the family pack of 4 so each of us would get one. That was the one last thing I needed for the trip and then I would be done with packing.
I was checking my phone often to track the package.
Evening came. I saw UPS, FedEx and even USPS trucks pass by my home. However, none of them stopped by my door. The waiting seemed unbearable. At around 8 PM when I was tucking Lime and Lily into bed, I received a text. As soon as I read it, I ran downstairs to tell Lemon all about it. “We are sorry for the delay. Your package is still on its way and will be delivered to you in the next couple days“
I was mad at Amazon. We were leaving for the vacation the next day and they say they will deliver in the next couple days? Insane. I placed the order just because the site said it will be delivered on the 20th. I had no choice but to give up the idea about wearing something Christmassy for the Christmas vacation.
If all this sounds silly to you, you are more than welcome to stop reading here. Okay? I am a drama queen. I know.
Come next day, we were all ready to leave home. I even checked our mailbox for the package before leaving. It was empty. So, with a big sigh I left. We reached the airport, checked our bags, dealt with Lime & Lily’s drama while waiting for security, got our dinner and ran to the gate. As we settled in our seats in the airplane, my phone beeped with Amazon’s text alert. “Your package has been delivered!”.
My jaw dropped. You delivered it now? Just after I left home? You could have as well delivered it an hour earlier. I felt cheated and angry. I badly wanted this for my trip. Sigh!
I should NOT have ordered something for the trip in the last minute. My mistake. I should have known.
Here’s the pic. It’s still sitting at home. Unopened. I haven’t decided if I am going to keep it anyways or return it. Ufff!
