How to Be a Nice Person, by FedEx

Why is it that you always have to run out right when you're expecting a delivery that has to be signed for? *sigh* It never fails.

That happened to me yesterday. I was having compatibility problems with my old computer monitor (and when I say old, I mean, like older than Larry King). So I ordered a new one with my Great Rewards gift card. The great thing about being Dell's neighbor is that you don't have to wait long. If I were Michael Dell, I'd deliver some of these orders myself, just to surprise and amaze Austinites. But I guess he's not as fun as I am.

I digress.

Anyway, I had to pop out for like TWENTY MINUTES yesterday and what do you know - FedEx - too bad, so sad you lose note is stuck on my door. I was dejected.

I drooped around the house until about 5:30, when my doorbell rang. And there stood my FedEx guy. I almost hugged him. I screamed "YOU'RE BACK!!!!" at which point I think he was scared but he took it well. He said - "Well, I thought you might want this today."Now is there anything sweeter than that? Stopping back by at the end of the day because he knew the yelly lady might want a box that said Dell on it?

I love you FedEx guy. Thank you.

Yesterday, I had my Blended Pencil Tutorial on Splitcoast.It's a simple technique that I told you guys about here, but now there's a whole step by step tutorial here. Go check it out - I bet you already have the supplies, it's inexpensive, and it's fun & relaxing and easy!

  1. I really love your blog - you crack me up! Loved the vanity card - telephone was perfect..

  2. That happened to me once, too. Do u think they're a cult of happy do-gooders? Or are they just determined to get some human contact? I'm definitely a fan of FedEx and yes, I will go check out your tutorial because I've been wondering what to do with my 5 year old blending pencils! Have a nice day!
