Fr-a-g-i-l-e


Chan sent notice that a box was shipped to me and the DD.
Here it is. Now there's tape all over the box with the words, FRAGILE HANDLE WITH CARE written in red.
This is how the package arrived. I know Chan was careful when she packed the item/items so I have no fear anything is damaged but wouldn't you think UPS would take better care when it's clearly marked FRAGILE?
Unfortunately I vowed not to open it until the DD is here to enjoy opening the package. She's with her best friends until tomorrow. One best friend leaves tomorrow morning for Utah where she will be attending college so they're cramming friend time.
Since I made that vow without really thinking clearly, DH decided to set the box right in front of me so I could stare at the unopened box. Meany! LOL
p.s. He and Mr. Bettis are taking a nap. Do ya think they'd hear me taking the pointy scissors to the corner of the box?

Ooooh...I don't know if I would have your restraint. Tales of how the box "just fell open" would abound at my house. lol

Um... It's not really fragile. I mean, two things in there could have been broken in shipping if they played football with the package... as it appears they did...

Oh, I do hope you don't have a mess inside that box...

UPS is famous around here for throwing fragile packages onto the porch. That is why I request Fed Ex when I can and since I complained so much, I finally got a new driver, they sent one who can actually read! That last one couldn't and I kept getting everyone's packages but my own. Irritating. You know, utility knives do not make much sound when you cut the tape with them! Hint! Hint! Hint!

I swear they see "fragile" and think "let me STOMP on this" - ugh.
