Happy Humpday dolls! I don't usually post too much about my personal life, and I try not to ran too much but today I just can't help it. Last night I had plans to edit some photos and write a nice little blog post but real life got in the way. And since I don't have too many... interesting (?) experiences to share I had to write about this one. Not to mention, I try REALLY hard to understand what people in the service industry go through but sometimes there's just no excuse.
So with the rain and cold front moving through yesterday I had exactly zero motivation to go to the gym. I had to take my pup to the vet any way so I figured skip the gym, skip making dinner and go out to dinner. I have also been wanting a bike for awhile so I finally found one I really liked so I figured I'd grab that while I was out. I ordered the bike online for pick up in store near the restaurant I was going to for dinner, they said it would be ready for pick up in about 2 hours so I thought that was perfect. Easy peasy, right? I wish. So we get to dinner and they're reasonably busy but nothing crazy. I put our names in and the lady hands over the pager thing and tells us its going to be 5-15 minutes. Cool. Numerous people come in after us... all who are seated before us. I decide to be patient, maybe they called ahead, and wait it out. After 11 people who came in after us and 20 minutes my patience finally broke. And boy do I mean broke. I was hungry and over it. So I went up to the hostess and asked her how much longer it was going to be (oh this is after I finally got her attention) and she tells me "Oh haha! Whoops! I accidentally put your name on the call ahead list not the waiting list! It's a good thing you came up here to check or you'd be sitting there all night!". No apology, no "I messed up", nada. At this point steam is literally coming out of my ears. We won't get into the things I said after I walked away but trust me, it's a really good thing I HADN'T been seated yet because if I had a knife, I would have cut a bitch. The rest of dinner went fine, I had a nice giant adult beverage to calm my irritation and then proceeded to the store to pick up my bike which I was e-mailed saying it was ready.
And here goes round two. I get to the store and the last bike they had in stock was waiting for me up front. Yay! With a flat tire. Awesome. They weren't sure whether there was a problem with the tire or whether it just needed air. It turned into a fairly long process of them trying to locate the bike in a store in Central Florida that didn't have a flat tire. There were UPC code miscommunications, computer mix ups, and LOTS of waiting at Customer Service. To keep this story from dragging on any longer than it already has... similar to how my night went actually, I ended up taking the bike with the flat tire. They were really nice and gave me $25 off the bike and we managed to get it into my car (I was definitely worried about that). I'd say to make a long story short but let's be real, this was a long story. So maybe I'll end with "the moral of the story is" sometimes real life gets in the way of blogging life. Although sometimes I prefer blogging life.
Hope everyone has a fantastic rest of the week, it's all down here from here, right?
Happy Friday lovelies! I'm not going to lie, I had every intention of taking today off from blogging since this week has been crazy ...
