Remember Bob? I got two calls from him today; he thought he had a pickup to do at my house but it turns out he was supposed to pick up some tires somewhere else. Even after I let his wife know he made a mistake, he called looking for directions to my house. Luckily I set him straight before he made it to my neighborhood.
In eBay related news, I had not one but two people try to back out of sales after the auctions' completions, for no good reason other than they changed their minds. One person decided to pay before I could react to her message about the cancellation request. The other, who was in Canada, said she didn't want it because the postage was unexpectedly too high. Not only would she have been able to calculate that ahead of time, the cost was $4 higher than the US economy rate I had listed. After some back and forth, in which she changed her reasons several times for wanting to cancel, she finally paid. I take the bidding thing seriously, the stuff is up for an entire week so there's plenty of time to retract bids. After a week of hoping something will sell, I don't want to wait another week unnecessarily!
Is it a further coincidence that last night I watched A Dangerous Method again, in which Jung claims he doesn't believe in coincidences? I think fate is trying to tell me to do things I've been putting off and stop being so flaky, i.e. to finish my accounting & tax documents once and for all.
Is it weird that I find this scene so soothing?
I am expecting guests tomorrow night, and there's a lot of work to do around the house. I've got to move a few shortboxes full of comics from the living room. Also I have to keep in mind that one of those guests is a roly-poly teething baby! I must baby-proof like the wind.
