Observation #7: UnReliability


So I finally heard from that Moving Company about my Stuff. I just happened to pop by my old Boot Box to see how my Illegitimate Nephew, Kevin, was doing, and to grab a bunch of Great Grandma Gee Gee’s delicious HoneyChew Krisp Cookies, when the phone rang. (I guess Kevin decided to get a telephone, even though he told me that he wasn’t all that pleased, beecause the line was usually buzzy or isn't working, so he was Highly Excited that he'd gotten a call, even if it wasn't for him.)

When the phone rang, Kevin answered, then told me it was my Moving Company and that they wanted to talk to me.

“Mr. Bee?” they said.
“Yes, I am,” I said.
“We wanted to contact you to pass along some great news that we’re sure will make you very happy” they said.
“You’re gonna finally deliver my Stuff?” I asked, hopefully.

“No,” they said, “we’re calling to inform you that we’ve changed the terms of your contract with us! In lieu of our undertaking the Extreme Inconvenience to our Staff, Wear and Tear on our Equipment, and Exceedingly Exorbitant Costs related Delivery of your Stuff, we’re instead offering you the Opportunity to simply pick your Stuff up from our Storage Facility whenever it is convenient for you, and for only a small, additional Pick Up Fee. You may come by anytime beetween the hours of 6:05 and 6:10 a.m., Mondays and Thursdays and Saturdays, to pick up your Stuff.

“Of course, anything left behind in our Storage Facility after 6:10 a.m. on Tuesday, December 12, will bee auctioned off to satisfy your Storage Bill.

“A copy of your Revised Contract Agreement with us will bee mailed to you beefore the end of the year, most likely. Thank you for relying on us for your Moving Needs. Have a nice day.” Then they hung up.

Geeeeeeeze. All this time, I’ve been Totally Relying on this bunch to safely deliver all my Stuff to my new Shoebox, and they pull this. What a Huge Mistake. They’re Totally Unreliable.

Seriously now, I’m not even sure how what they’re pulling here is even legal, but my Lawyer, S.O.Bee, told me, “It’s legal. They own the company. Whatever they say goes. I would advise that you pick up your Stuff as soon as possible. Please pay on your way out.”

So I did that, and since then, I’ve been getting up every morning Highly Early and picking up my Stuff, piece by piece, and moving it into my new Shoebox.

And that’s why you haven’t heard from me for awhile. I’ve been buzzy doing that, and spending the rest of my time trying to figure out why it’s so difficult to bee able to depend on things these days, ya’ know what I mean?

Okay then. I have to get ready to go to bed now so I can get up early tomorrow and try to get the rest of my Stuff. As soon as I’m all moved in, I’ll invite everybody over for a Shoebox Warming Party. Probably.

Until then,
let’s all bee Highly Careful out there!
