Scribbles and Scrambles - Dang! Apparently I Don't Get Out Much!

I had to overnight a package for my office today. I'm still suffering from the sticker shock.

Keep in mind that I rarely send packages. I'll save things up so I can hand deliver them if need be.

Several years ago Rob worked on a lake-side vacation home for a week in a neighboring state. He forgot half of his luggage. He called wondering if I could UPS it to him. I checked into it and discovered it would cost forty-five bucks. Hello! So he bought new underwear and a pair of shorts and some contact lens solution for thirty.

Anyhoo. Back to the future. So I drive the package to an official UPS drop off station to save the office the pick-up fee. The guy measures the very small package, weighs it, promises it will arrive at 8:30 a.m. in Texas and gives me a total. Eighty-eight bucks.

Oh my!
