So, do you remember back when I did a thing and the human female’s order for one case of five apothecary bottles mysteriously turned into an order for five cases of ten?
She called and straightened all that out, and five bottles were supposed to arrive last October.
They showed up at the tail end of December. All forty of them. Yes, indeed, four cases of ten! The human female called the account representative with the vendor and straightened it out again. She has been waiting for a particular bit of paper that will let her ship the unwanted ones back at no charge.
Meanwhile, ANOTHER case of ten has shown up! Ehehehehehe! This is what fifty one-liter apothecary bottles looks like:
Except, you know, that they don’t all fit in the photo and there are TWO MORE CASES ON THE FLOOR!
Ehehehehehehe! The human female is NOT happy! The departmental accounts payable people are not happy because the vendor keeps demanding the payment for all of these. The University’s accounts payable personnel are not happy because they would really like to close the books on Fiscal Year 2014. The vendor is unhappy because they have not been paid and they are about to eat a whopping return-shipping bill. The vendor’s account representative is not happy because the human female (who I am certain was a yappy sort of terrier in a former life) pesters her daily to FIX this. The tech staffers in whose office the multitude of bottles reside are not happy because this small mountain of glassware is going nowhere fast.
I, on the other hand, am tickled pink.
