It pays to read carefully…

The size of the carton in the latest delivery rang alarms bells immediately.  I thought I had ordered a restock of nibs but the carton resembled the Hyundai advert where a car is delivered in a cardboard box.  Digging through a mountain of poly chips, box after box after box emerged, multiple packs of nib sets, shrink wrapped box sets… I wondered if I was going to discover the company cat and a delayed Christmas hamper.  What had I ordered?  On checking my order it turns out that I had not ordered in units but rather in multipacks resulting in six times what I thought I was ordering. The cardboard box alone would have filled our recycling bin.

  • I promise myself to read more carefully or next time it may be  a  something like a car
  • or even six cars!
