Longer Days & Shorter Nights

I try to avoid posting while working but I had to get this off my chest. I had a customer looking to buy a bed. That always makes me happy so of course I am pleased. Then she emailed to say she’ll buy it if I could give her a discount. We have some discounts floating around some sites so I give her a code. Doesn’t she call me back to ask for free delivery because other companies offer that too? About now I was ready to offer her the bed for free and ask the delivery man to smash her head with it once he got there.

The flip side is though if you don’t ask you wont get. And that’s what the bible says, ask and you will receive. So irritated as I am I do admire this lady who couldn’t care less that she might have come across as cheap, and why should she? It’s not like we know each other or I pay her rent. I’ve taken a leaf from her book today and will be sure to ask for a discount even when one is already being offered. The worst that will happen is an irritated call handler on the other end wishing the delivery man would smash my head.

I’ve been going through a lot of asking today- I haven’t been asking (that much), its the boys. Mom can I have a biscuit? Mom can we watch a movie? Mom where are we going today? Mom where are we going tomorrow?
I know they love me so I’ll ignore warning signs that those boys are out to get me. All my plans to let them stay up as late as possible so they get up late the next morning have backfired on me, big time. They stay up late and wake up early so its truly longer days and shorter nights in our home, bless them.

  1. I feel you my sister. I’m always one for asking ‘what more can you offer me in addition to what I’m actually paying for?’ etc. It’s just in me to bargain. So when I do call up to order a bed, I’d probably ask for Egyptian 400 count cotton bed linen as well! As for my kids, the older one won’t nap during the day, would go to bed as late as possible, and come dawn, would be the one to wake the birds! How for do?

    • And you know we do sell Egyptian cotton bedlinen too! Simply include your request in the comments box at checkout. It is the oldest one too that does it to us. He suddenly decided one morning to wake up early every morning to watch t.v. The good thing is that he does so quietly. Hope your day is off to a good start sis.
