We do not live at the last outpost of the world.
Our name is on the door — granted, it’s misspelled,
but it’s a good approximation. Would someone
look at Cavichia and Cavicchia and say they are
different, and it must be the wrong house?
That’s not what I said to Chaithra in the chat,
though I did say I was upset and that
the delivery person must not have tried
all that hard, since we were sitting at home,
one, both, or all four of us, all day long,
and never heard a buzz (it’s not faint,
and also the dog erupts every single time).
Chaithra said that she was addressing this as
a very high priority, and that she would extend
my Prime time by a month, and that it was
a pleasure to assist me today.
That was yesterday.
Today’s prompt at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads was to write about something I’m waiting for, without saying what it is.

Book shops are still the way to go 😉
I agree, but the waylaid Amazon package had a weird assortment of stuff in it. 🙂
Promises, promises, so frustrating when things don’t happen as they should 🙂 Enjoyed your write, my dog does that too,,,
Sigh… I know the feeling.. the constant waiting… wondering.. overthinking .. over analyzing.. and yet when it doesn’t happen we still don’t give up or quit!
Thanks, Sanaa! I was watching our front gate all day.
I enjoyed this, especially the chat girl’s spiel, so scripted, and fun to read.
And even though I know it’s a script, I kind of fall for it and believe they’re expediting my request.
The chat girl is quoting from a script she has read thousands of times. Still, it was only yesterday. I have learned from long experience to allow anything for 7-10 days.
I know … Amazon Prime has gotten into my head and increased my sense of urgency. 🙂
I adore this! Haven’t we all been there? I love the tone of restrained irritation, reasonable annoyance, contained impatience … lol.
Yes, all bound up in guilt over the kind of speed I’ve now been trained to expect.
The last line says it all! I feel your pain.
Thank you! It finally did arrive.
