So, I ordered a course from "The Great Courses" place in Virginia; Our Night Sky on DVD. I have this nice little telescope and I want to learn how to use it better. Living someplace with more clear night sky’s would probably help, but that is another issue all together!
Anywho, the company shipped via FedEx. FedEx states on its web site that they delivered 3 Feb. Left it on the door as no signature was required. HOWEVER, I have *not* seen this package. I go out and in my front door every day when the dog and I go for our walks, sometimes several times a day, and I have yet to see a package on my front door step. Or on the back door step. Nor on the door step to the mother-in-law door. I believe that FedEx may have delivered my package to some other door step.
So I went to the FedEx site and spent a good 10 minutes tracking down where to complain that I have yet to actually see, feel or hear this package and that they probably delivered to the wrong house. What a pain! But I finally got to where I wanted to be and left a complaint. I don’t expect it’ll do any good. FedEx will just say they delivered it. And you know that "The Great Courses" will say it’s FedEx’s failt. (Which it probably is.)
So I’m probably out near $30 bucks because of some lazy FedEx driver.
OTT things are still pretty much SSDD around here. Rained some today and is still too cool outside for me. Still studying for my General test this Saturday. So Far I’ve passed all the practice tests at qrz.com. Barely passed some but passed.
SWMBO has had a pain in her side the last couple of days and went to see her doctor today. She may have gallstones. Bummer! I had my gallbladder taken out almost 9 years ago just for that reason. The surgery nowadays is easy and quick; it’s the *after* that’s difficult. Mostly watching the fat content of anything you want to eat. Too much fat can cause real problems!
Really enjoyed the latest episode of Smallville. Chloe came back with a Matrix Vengeance!
