Goodness knows there's enough WACKY in my world. WACKY WORLD WEDNESDAYS!!!
I gotta stop. I know me. I can go on & on &on with this line of thinking.
WONT STOP WACKY WORLD WEDNESDAYS!!
Why am I not in advertising?
Some of you saw my post the other day on Facebook about what happened to Ricky.
|Not my picture... but its sad that most of my life lately can be represented by ABC News screenshots|
& it involved yet ANOTHER UPS situation.
Is UPS a jinx to us? Cursed in some sort of way?
... nah - the UPS man brings us all our goodies & everything from Amazon so he's alright in my book.
On Monday, Ricky got off half a day because he worked on Saturday. Now, he usually likes to save his half day & take it on Friday when half days really count for something important & special making a weekend an extra 4 hours longer. YES! THE BEST!.... but with him not feeling well, he threw the towel & said he was taking it on Monday & going home & going to bed. Poor guy.
When Ricky surrenders to sickness, you know the end is near. He never does that. I've seen the man go to work with a fever of 103. Yes, he's the person other coworkers hate because that line of thinking is like saying "Germs are meant for everyone"... but he's also the type of guy that hates to call in sick & leave his work for anyone else. Its a lose lose situation. But just shows he has good intentions.
So he's at home, shivering with cold chills & he hears Harvey Dent barking. He ran upstairs to see the UPS truck... that good ole UPS truck... pulling out of the driveway.
It looks a lot different when you see it in daylight & you're not chasing it.
He went to get a drink & something to snack on when he heard Harvey Dent barking again... & some ruckus on the porch.
He looks out & see's a man standing right on the steps of our porch. SAY WHAT?
Ricky opened the door & the guy, who had on a baseball cap, pulled it down to shield his face & he started walking towards his truck.... really fast....
Ricky said the guy lifted his hand to sort of wave to him but didn't look towards Ricky at all... & once he got in his beaten down white pick up truck, he GUNNED IT.
Even tearing through our yard to get on the move!
What is the deal with vehicles pulling out of our driveway like the world is ending?
Ricky said he stood there a minute totally confused on what was happening... & then he said it was like it clicked & he yelled, "HEY!!!"... realizing the guy was trying to take our packages the UPS guy just dropped off.
I blame his fever for the slow response.
But how freaking scary is that?
Someone even said it was a good thing this guy didn't have a weapon on him when Ricky came out & caught him standing there.
I never even thought of that... & then I was even more freaked out
Want to know what's even crazier.... it is WONT STOP WACKY WORLD WEDNESDAY after all...
There was a package on our porch that I didn't even order.
But it was charged to me.
Back it up... last week, I am looking at my email & see an order was placed online at a store for over $200. & the order was placed at like 2 am... I was so confused what that was.
& then I looked up what the order was.
The biggest part of the order? A 7 piece King Size Comforter set.
We don't even own a king size bed.
& the colors? ... nothing that even goes in our house.
I called Ricky at work asking him if he all of a sudden was tired of me talking about HGTV & how cute Chip & Joanna Gaines was & he turned into Mr. Interior Designer himself & ordered some home goods for a bed we don't have & a color that wouldn't fit it. He assured me interior design is not on his list of goals in this world. Wasn't him that placed the order.
I called the store & they told me they would look into it...
but here we are now. A package I didn't order, but was charged to me... coming to my porch & a man showing up to pick that & maybe the other packages up.
HOW SCARY IS THAT?!?!?!!?
Is it just a coincidence that this happened when that package I didn't order was being delivered?
Is this guy going around & following the UPS truck - because he was at our front porch no less than the few minutes it took for the UPS guy to turn around & drive out....
All I know is I'm ready to hole up. Put the bars down around my house. Get off the grid. Turn off all electricity. Stop online ordering.
.... ok... we all know I'm still going to order from Amazon. Let's be real.
But I'm going to have it delivered now to some hole in the ground I'm going to start digging tomorrow!
...If you need me, I'm heading to my new home soon....
Think UPS delivers here?
