I am a really lucky wife... My hubby loves to do woodworking and as soon as he finishes one project he is onto the next. The last project was a small wooden box.
Now he has decided to build new bedroom furniture for us.
First up are the night stands. He is using poplar and will stain them a dark oak color. He is working on the two (actually 4) drawers now. He does really good work and loves to do it. He is also quick. These were started 2 weekends ago and it will only be a couple of more weekends and he will be finished. Then I will have to find something to do with my side tables I am using now.
Aren't they nice?
The Rock Star and I woke up to a problem this morning. Actually I knew about it last night, but at 11:45pm there isn't a whole lot you can do with a flat tire. So this morning, he used the air compressor to air it up and we flew up to WallyWorld to get it fixed. At the same time I had some items to mail to the grandkids.
This young girl was in front of me at the post office. Let's listen in....\
first off the YG is on the phone and continues to talk on her phone even after she realizes it is her turn in line and the POE is staring at her.... (so rude!!)
YG (young girl)... I need a box.
POE (post off employee) ... what size of box do you need?
YG for my camera
POE Do you want to mail the camera priority? or parcel post?
YG um.. it needs to get there tomorrow
POE You will need to send it express (POE leaves to get the appropriate box)
YG - How much will it cost?
POE - The box is free, you just pay for postage.
YG - How much will postage be?
POE - Where is it going?
YG - (are you ready?) Church camp
POE - Where is church camp?
YG - Um...I don't know.
POE - Do you have the address?
YG - No
POE - Well, do you know what city or state?
YG - Um...it's not far. About 2 hours from here... How much would that cost?
POE - I really need the address to give you a price.
YG - oh.
POE - is there anything else?
YG - no.
at this point the POE reaches for my packages and starts to weigh them. The YG is still standing there. The POE looks over at her. The YG says - um....can I take the box home and bring it back?
WOW....maybe next time she needs to be more informed? Maybe she just doesn't understand that the PO uses address's to figure cost?
We are still waiting for the call to say the flat tire is fixed. I have once again lost the camera... I got the little tote bag/purse finished last night and I only have a bit of quilting to do on the baby quilt so maybe I will edit this post before tomorrow and have some photos...
If not, I will take a photo of the fixed tire. how about that?
