Last week, I shipped a 24" monitor to our Arlington, VA location. I forgot to insure the package and it was damaged....badly! It looked like this delivery company played basketball with the monitor! So I decided to file a claim anyway.

I did that on Thursday and have not heard anything from them. So I contacted the Arlington office to see if they had heard from the delivery company. My co-worker there replied, "Well...the monitor isn't here anymore." Me: "What? Where is it?" Co-worker: "We think the cleaning crew thought it was trash and threw it out." Me: "HOLY CRAP!" and laughter ensued. I couldn't help it. It WAS trash, but we were trying to see if the delivery company would take responsibility for their actions. Maybe the building management will buy us a new monitor instead. It was just so funny to me because it started off by me making a mistake, followed by a series of laughable errors.

  1. I'll bet the cleaning crew took it to play basketball.
