My near death experience over a bbag!!!


Wife,mom,purse hog!
Sep 28, 2006
So I am finally in possession of my very first bbag. An '05 sky blue City.

Of course, this could not be a normal occurance as everything with me is somehow dramatic. To start off with, I'm battling a horrible cold. My head feels like someone is drilling a hole to China in there. Next, my 16 month old son has been a holy terror today. Why? Because he's 16 month's old. Ya now - just because. So by 5:00pm I'd pretty much had it. No Sudafed, no Calgon, no whiskey could help me at this point. All I wanted was to sit in front of my computer and have a moments peace.

So I sat in front of my computer to check my e-mail and, voila, USPS email!!!! Could this be an e-mail saying my lovely bbag that I have been longing for is finally ready to be delivered tomorrow? I open it and here begins my near-death experience. Yes folks, I really thought I was going to die. I felt I was going to die. My blood pressure shot through the roof!!!
Why? Because I read in plain black and white on my computer screen the words that would cause me to practically have a coronary and hurl my dinner - "Item delivered 10:37am"......WHAT THE :censor: ????

"I DON'T THINK SO UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE!!!! I have been at home ALL :censor: DAY and you better believe I didn't receive my little baby."

I turned all shades of every color on God's Earth. My husband didn't even say a word because he knew I was about to go ballistic. Which I did.

I grabbed my keys and walked out IN THE RAIN onto the street in flip flops and my jammies. I began knocking on every neighbor's door on my block. If you'd know me IRL, you'd know that I'd do that in a heartbeat - I'm not shy. I arrived at my next door neighbor's house which I left for last. She answered the door and before I could get out a word handed me a beautiful brown package that was left on her doorstep unattended all day. It was mine. It was intact, and, fortunately, not wet. I thanked her profusely and ran back to my house. After I cursed the USPS and my nimrod mail carrier (apologies to anyone who may be a MC on this forum), I opened my package. I savored every moment. I haven't had this much fun since Christmas 1976 when I got my 1st Barbie dollhouse.

There it was. It is more beautiful than the pictures could ever convey. I didn't even want to touch it, but I finally smooshed the leather between my fingers. Ahhhh....heaven. I felt my blood pressure return to normal. My heart settled down. I even decided to not kill my mail carrier. I had my bbag. All was right in the world. Here are a few pics. The color is so much more beautiful than my crappy camera can show.

Thanks for ready my dopey story. The drama is over. Let the lovefest begin.:love: :love: :love:

BTW, may I just add that the seller treated this bag beautifully. It is in pristine condition. I was absolutely amazed. Pardon my jammies in the picture, but I've got my Valentino gown at the cleaners:graucho: .

Wow, what a fabulous post. I rode that roller-coaster good and hard all the way with you! And you are right, the bag is much more gorgeous than I remember in the listing. And I stand corrected: this is a stunning color!!!!
Congrats on your very first bbag, and thanks for the wonderful intro.

Great story and congrats on your new beautiful bag.

I swear the delivery guys are just crazy thesedays. You are lucky though, wasn't there a story a while ago when a neighbor stole the (misdelivered) bbag package from one of the ladies here?

Oh Donna!

Thank you Rondafaye, luvmychanel, MRG, eping, jydeals1, tods123, Oh Donna! for your well wishes. I swear I didn't mean for the story to sound funny, but, in retrospect, I guess it does sound like a 'Seinfeld' episode.

Decophile, you're lucky I don't charge for roller-coaster rides.;) All kidding aside, I'm glad you liked the color 'cause I love it to pieces.

helenNZ & print*model - thank you for hoping I get well. Vacation is 8 days away, so I hope so too.

BTW tods123, the story of that poor girl having her bag 'stolen' because of a wrong delivery kept going around in my head as I read that e-mail. Hence the elevated blood pressure.
