Figured id wait til I got a good story before I signed up here. Well that didn't take long. 22.4, just wrapped up my training route, first day as a permanent hire.
I'm delivering this gaming monitor, 4K, 40 inch, all the bells and whistles, loudest box on my car. Swear I just heard it screaming "STEAL ME!!"
Doing my best to hide it, stowed it behind the bushes. There's this lil wet spot on the concrete... melting icicle, no big. Super thick box with a plasticky finish. TV is gonna be wrapped in styrofoam.. completely hidden, everything checks out, let's get moving.
Im walking back to the truck and I hear the door crack... I'm expecting "thank you!!!" I hear a million times a day, already preparing my departure wave. Instead, I'm graced with "YOU PUT IT IN THE WATER???? WHY WOULDNT YOU PUT IT OVER HERE???" She's belting out at me while pointing at the middle of her patio.
Keeping in mind.. this "water" is an inch wide, absorbed into the concrete, you could run your finger over it and itll come out drier than my ex's, anyways Ive done customer service before so I hit her with the "I'm sorry, I was trying to hide it" ya know, wont happen again and whatnot and I hop back in the Hershey mobile thinking that's that, ready to blast out some more stops when she tops it off with "a little common sense wouldn't hurt!"
Ooh, that got my gears turning. Where should I start? "Next time, I'll leave it in plain sight so someone else can take it off your hands"? Maybe "common sense? The kind that tells you not to leave a brand new TV up for grabs on your patio, that the common sense you're talking about?"
Anyways, I stared at her and drove off. Real tough guy, me. She won't have to worry anymore, see thats the thing about me I'm very thoughtful. From now on I'll make sure to deliver her next packages at the very end of the day so all the water had time to evaporate!
