It was going way too easy.

I was contacted yesterday from someone wanting to buy a Christening bracelet (and may want to buy more bracelcets in the future). She is leaving on the 6th for the Christening and needs it delivered by the 5th. It took until today for her to send payment and give me the details (size, name, etc). So I got to work on it tonight. Luckily, I had all the letters in stock. Perfect. I could make it tonight, ship it tomorrow, and she'd have it by Wednesday. No problem.

So I made the bracelet.

But just after I printed out the shipping label, I received an email from her: I made a mistake in my original order! The child's name is spelled Lilly - not Lily. That's two l's. I'm sorry for the confusion!

I...I don't have another "L".

I just placed an order for more letters, including "L"s, but it will be a few days before I receive them.

I can cancel the shipping label, and I can go to the bead store tomorrow after work, and I can ship it Saturday. It will work out.

But I'm just a bit...crushed.

It was going so well!

I need some chocolate now.

Let not this minor setback get in the way of baby bracelet domination!

You have a much better sense of customer service than I do. People like that drive me nuts, but maybe because I spend a lot of my time calling people and reminding them that we're waiting on information from them and the deadline is October 15th, people, and get your act together!

Whew! I feel better.

What kind of chocolate? I have a membership at Costco, so I can get huge bags of different chocolates. I currently have a collection of Reeses peanut butter cups, mini baby ruths, mini butterfingers, mini hershey bars, mini crunch bars, and mini cavities.
