You didn’t really think I’d let this go, did you?
Astute readers may recall that the human female was struggling to pay for the latest shipment of Dead Things.
She’s still struggling. The whole flap initially was that there was one invoice for the Purveyor of Dead Things at the right Vendor ID Number and one with the wrong VID. As far as the human female knows, it should have been possible to just tear up the wrong one, but both had been cancelled.
She looked again a few days ago, and there are STILL two invoices attached to the PO, but both are showing the right VID and one is for the mostly complete shipment, and another for the backordered things. Both are cancelled. The PODT has been asked to provide a new one. Maybe it’ll get paid. Maybe it won’t. Only the Bean Counters really know (and they work for me.)
Three boxes of ACTUAL DEAD CATS have shown up! These were ordered back in May from the Purveyor of Squiggly Things (who also deals in Dead Things, though they’re not as well-preserved as the Dead Things from the PODT–are you following all of this?) They were ordered because the PODT couldn’t promise 14 stiff kitties, so the human female ordered these as backup, because the POST said they could deliver.
The ones from PODT got here weeks ago.
It doesn’t show on the packing slips, but the order was specifically for 6 female and 8 male. What did she get? 10 female and 4 male.
Ehehehehe! This may be my very favorite prank EVER.
