Mother knows best. It’s the principle 🌹
Todays telephone conversation with my mother.
You know I ordered that wire scoop thing, for scooping things out of pans
Me: Yes, from Amazon
Mum: Yes, I ordered it on the 28 February, it still hasn’t come so I looked online and it says it’s out of stock. Due to be delivered next week.
Me: That’s strange they usually tell you when you order if it’s in stock or not
Mum: Hmm well I sent them an email telling them not to bother sending it and do you know what the cheeky beggar replied
Me: You’re too late to cancel you order!
Mum: Yes, how do you know that?
Me: Once it’s gone through the process you can’t cancel it, but you can refuse delivery.
Mum: That’s what they said and that is what I am going to do.
Me: How much was it?
Me: You’re having a laugh, £1.81
Mum: Yes, and the email said, can’t I give it to someone else as a present !
Me: Mother for £1.81 you can give it to me
Mum: I will not it is the principle
ME: So, you’re going to refuse it and then wait for your £1.81 to show back in your bank account.
Mum: I am, and the Amazon delivery man tends to put any parcels inside my porch window, so I have shut it. So he will get a shock.
Mum: I have shut the window so he can’t push it through. He shouldn’t do that anyway, last time he damaged some carnations I had in pots.
Me: Mum, just keep it I will buy it off you.
Mum: No, It’s the principle
Me: So you’re causing all this controversy over an item costing £1.81
Mum: It’s the principle. Anyway, I will get off the rugby has started again, I was only passing time ringing you at half time. Goodbye.
