I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

On a recent morning, I was awakened at 5:30am by my washer delivery people calling to say they were lost near my home while trying to deliver during a 6-10 delivery time window. Who delivers at 6 much less 5 freaking 30 in the am ?!? …in the dark in the country. That’s the kind of thing that gets someone accidently shot.
Not by me, mind you, cause I was asleep, but I have neighbors with shotguns that they have been known to pull out if someone looks suspicious. I’m talking about a moving truck pulling up to my house in the middle of the night and two grown men getting out while one stays in the truck to be the lookout / getaway driver suspicious…and before you ask, yes, they were wearing hoodies – it is actually somewhat chilly at 5:30am! They unloaded the washer and went on their merry way.
Then, I got ready for work.
Then, I got into my Nissan Leaf and was excited that I was going to be fairly on time for work on account of the delivery people showing up before the arse crack of dawn.
Then, I sat in traffic…
…for
…two
…hours.
On the upside, I grew 5 trees and only used 40% of a charge. Man, I love this car! Because if you have to sit in traffic for two hours, you should at least have twice your personal record of trees to show for it! It was nice to think of all the gas money I’d saved!

Ps. Yes, I had plenty of juice left to get home in the evening. :)

    That is freaking cool.

    The car part.

    However, ANYONE waking me up at 5:30 for ANY reason…not so much.

    Who in their right mind gets a washer/dryer delivered at 6:00 am??

    Oh, wait. Nevermind.

    Love. =)

      I didn’t schedule them at all. They never called me until they were lost. They “assigned” me the 6-10 devlivery window and emailed Charles about it. I was displeased.
