Paper Chasing

OK, so I get the Sunday paper delivered, mostly for the coupons. (Technically, I get Thursday through Sunday, even though I only pay for Saturday and Sunday, and only really want Sunday-- it's confusing, I know.)

I didn't get my paper last Sunday, so I phoned for redelivery Monday. It was too late for it to be delivered Monday, so they'd send it Tuesday.

Tuesday: No Sunday paper.

I spoke to someone Tuesday, who said oh, that automated system doesn't work in your area. (Nice to know!) She promised to call the carrier and send one out.

Wednesday: No Sunday paper.

Wednesday I spoke to someone else, who assured me I'd have my Sunday paper Thursday morning.

Today: I received a Wednesday paper with my Thursday paper.

I phoned again. "I'm so sorry, we'll have a supervisor drop off your Sunday paper right away."

A few moments ago: I just received a second Thursday paper.

This isn't the first time I've had trouble with the Gainesville Sun, but it's probably the best-documented.

Now, I'm a pretty patient person, but this is pushing the boundries of even my patience.


Poll #1011696 The Paper Chase!

I'm taking bets-- what happens next?

They'll deliver the Sunday paper today!
They'll deliver some other day's paper today!
They'll deliver something else completely, like a pizza, or some crayons!
They'll deliver something (anything) to your neighbor (again)!
They won't deliver anything and may put a hit on you.

The saga continues...

Haha, a gent named "David" just called me to let me know that no-one was available to deliver my Sunday paper to me.

He will personally drop one off in the morning.

I'm sure he will!

What a craptastic day

My plates came in! They look like factory seconds. Seriously-- I'll try to take pictures tomorrow. They're going back. And the company is all out of them, so I can't even replace the bad ones. I'll have to find a whole new set somewhere, somehow. I don't even want to look at another set of dishes.

Work is crazy and I'll probably have to work tomorrow and the weekend again. I'm hating it.

My newspaper eludes me and probably always will.

And I got my computer parts in, only to find that I somehow managed NOT to order the video card. Wha? How'd I manage that?!

I spent a frantic twenty minutes trying to get a hold of someone at newegg, only to be told that maybe if I put in an order tonight, I'll get it tomorrow. My browser died twice in the process.

I think my chances are slim, but newegg's pretty amazing-- so I put in the order anyway.

Think good neweggy thoughts, k? I really don't want to deal with another week of this.

Heck, think good lotterywinning thoughts while you're at it.
