>Heard from Trisia again today….
“I did get your package back on Friday, and I think about 1/2 of it was missing, including the coasters I made for you, which of course were dyed to match the yarn I dyed for you. 😦 All the treats were gone and so was the gift card, and the card I had in there for you. Very disappointing.”
So, evidently someone in Bristol, CT is a major scumbag and stole the goodies. And they’ve caused poor Trisia to have to replace stuff for me (which I really wish she hadn’t done, because none of this was her fault, but she’s a good egg and didn’t want me to lack for a wonderful swap package). And the post office isn’t doing anything about it, because the package wasn’t insured, even though it was clearly their fault because they delivered it to the wrong address.
**sigh** I’d say that people are pigs, but that’s offensive to the pig, which, from what I read, is an intelligent and noble animal.
What goes around comes around. And if that person’s life was so empty that they felt the need to steal from Trisia and me, well, I hope he or she enjoyed the stuff. I don’t think I could. That whole “golden rule” thing always kicks in.
In the meantime, I’m busy knitting cup cozies for other folks in the swap whose partners just plain flaked out and never sent anything. Again, I just don’t understand. Were these people raised by wolves? Do they have no sense of common decency? I mean, don’t enter into what is essentially a contract that you have no intention of fulfilling. Seems pretty cut and dried. Can someone please explain their thought process, because I don’t have a clue.
