  1. I haven't posted this until now, since I couldn't even bear to think about the outcome until it was all over...

    RBB, this is going to both horrify and crack you up!

    I had offered to send RBB my rouge Herbag bottom to use for awhile, since I wasn't using it and she was curious about the color.

    I packed it all up and put it in the trunk of my car, to be dropped off at FedEx in the next day or so.

    Little did I know that my husband had plans to trade in my car as a surprise to me, without telling me. He knew I liked the Land Rover, so it would be a welcome surprise.

    Except...

    The box got overlooked when my car was being traded in. It went with the car.

    So, home comes my husband with my new Land Rover (which I freaking *LOVE* :love:) and the first thing out of my mouth is:

    "Where the box that was in the trunk of the Audi?"

    "Um. What box? Oh, and you're welcome!" He was all bent that I hadn't thrown myself all over him in gratitude. First things first, buddy...there's Hermes at stake, here!

    (as patiently as possible:smile: "The. Box. That. Was. In. The. TRUNKOFTHEAUDI! Were is it?" :boxing:

    Ok, so this went on for about 5 minutes, until I asked him to please just call the dealership, locate the box and ask to have it put to the side.

    He calls.

    And this is what I hear on his end...

    "What do you mean, the car is already gone? I just left there an hour ago! Well, can you radio the truck and ask to have it brought back? I'll pay the damn fuel surcharge, I don't care. Look, do you have a wife? Help me out!"

    The car was on it's way to a central distributor where the car would be looked over and then they would decide what to do with it.

    The car would not arrive until the following day, after a few other pick-ups oat other dealerships.

    So, there was nothing to do but sit. And wait. And wait.

    2 days later, we get a call. The box had been found. Yay, right?

    Well, no. It seems that the contents of the car now belonged to the distribution lot and I would have to do some fast talking to get them to release it back to me. :cursing:

    I finally got a nice lady on the phone, explained the situation and she offered to drop it off to FedEx and ship it back to me.

    It just arrived. I can breathe now. :sweatdrop:

    So.

    Sarah, it will be on it's way to you shortly, and all of this is a very public explanation as to why it's so late in arriving. :nogood:
