not a Camera!
Upon a time I had saved up just enough cash to buy myself a used digital
camera. I purchased one off of Ebay and due to several mistakes on my
part, it seemed like it was taking forever to get to me.
the day had come, the holy day foretold by the UPS tracking feature on
thier website. I was anxious and prepared - I stayed home to receive the
package... I was stoked and jumpy...
the right you will see e-mail I exchanged before during and after the
package showed up. Below you will find pictures.
the oddity that can be my life,

I should have known.. I mean I really should have known...
UPS truck arrived... didn't come in the drievway but I heard
his door shut out on the road, or thought I did, so I was
loking out the door whenI see the UPS guy walking down the
I meet him in the driveway and take possesion of my package
and take it inside and gingerly cut it open...
fo find that the seller shipped me the WRONG ITEM!!!!
I now have a package intended for Someone Else that contains
a very nice BREAST PUMP!!!
resist urge to kill.
Must calm down.
Must contact seller and politely ask why I got mailed someone
elses breast pump instead of the camera I ordered...

Not to sound mean or anything, but that is the fucking funniest
thing i have heard in a long long long time. I have heard
of screwed up orders, but a freaking breast pump.
sure you get some good use out of that sucker before you send
it back. Just realized i called it a sucker.
i do feel sorry for you, even shedding a tear or two...

You are getting all sorts of sympathy from the rest of the
staff here at Harris; however, like me, they are laughing
through their tears.
kind of thing needs to go into a blog for all posterity.
12:08pm (4 hours ago)
Oh yeah I had to laugh too...
Opening the box I was thinking "wow I thoughtit came
with a case, but that'sa nice big leather camera case! One
of the flaps was open and I yanked a power converter out...
which was my first puzzlement - should have been a battery
charger. Then I open the flap on the front and see "Pump
in style" and I'm thinkin "well a breast pump bag
could work as a camera bag I suppose...". Then I try
opening the top, except it;s not a camera bag and doesn't
really have a top to open though there's an access panel to
the pump... then I'm very confused and read the packing split
and my eyes roll back and fire flares from my nostrils and
the cats run screeching for cover at the sound of my bellowed
retrospect I will look back on tihs and laugh. Really.
Mine is an evil laugh'

I'm wondeirng how bad the seller ill go to try and get me to
give him positive feedback instead of ruining his 100% rating...
Am thinking up suitable demands at this very moment.

Try a camera and a free breast pump...

I'm just wondering how the person who ordered teh breast pump
can't milk my tit with this!"
better,I have to go to work now...
Secure in teh knowledge I won't get my camera for... who knows
Ain't life just grand sometimes?

yes it is, as grand as what a denny's grand slam can do to
your digestive tract.
she triest to milk her tit with the camera i am sure some
interesting picts will come from it. Crazies would pay good
money to see them online.

Sorry it took me so long to respond to this, having trouble......
stopping from laughing. Sorry dude, but that is too damn funny,
you have to admit.
didn't figure you would get the package until around noon
anyway. But then for it to be the wrong package, that had
to suck and I could see some anger and profanity flying, but
what was in there instead, sorry I'm gonna start up again....
he said sucker.....
shouldn't have read that again, now I'm crying from laughter,
hard to type when you can't see.
composure regained again ;)
be interested to see what the seller has to say on that one,
please keep us informed. Sorry you didn't get your camera
yet, but you made our day for a bit funnier ;)
to brag, but my Firefly DVD's were sitting in the mailbox
yesterday when I got home.
you can get this resolved soon, and maybe the seller will
expedite the correct shipment to you, once he gets it back
from the lady more than likely as confused and who is trying
to use it as a breast pump.

this could only happen to you.
enjoy fondling your spanking new breast pump. hey, it's still
technogadget. technically speaking.
*giggles too much to handle*
ok. i can breathe again. can't wait to tell ambr.
hey, you know.....joel is mighty handy with cameras, and turning
strange things into cameras......perhaps your breast pump
is destined to be a camera! perhaps tink can make it so.
just think of pointing and clicking a breast pump.....
while you're saying "CHEESE!"
oh.....god...........i have to stop......................

even be fun.

know...I actually did fondle the pump itself. The bag has
an access hatch to get to the pump and I had opened it just
enough to stick my hand in and pull out what I was still hoping
would be a camera... let me tell you, what I felt was NO Camera.
*giggles too much to handle*
there was a metal shaft...
but I didn't feel around much more after that.
will be posting pictures in a while I hope, Ryan should be
getting them off teh work camera and to me soon. You may be
dissapointed in the pump itself as it pretty much just looks
liek a big leather bag...
Too bad the punmp itself doesn't have all the hardware or
I'd be temepted to take a nasty picture trying to extract
milk from my own man-boobies... yes I would stoop that low
- this whole situation is goofy enough that I would have to.
and in news from the seller, UPS said the camera hasn't been
delivered in Kansas City yet, so it should just be re-routed
to me. So it won't be mistakenly used for milking purposes...
which is nice to know from one point of view, but kind of
puts a buzzkill on some of the siliness...
got the pics, need to resize them and make a web page...
I may be silent for a half hour or more!
that, expect wierdness...

Yeah for wierdness, make sure that it is good and funky.
