Boomer and the Crunch Bunch
So the picture says I LOVE CVS but the story is really about Macy's.
A couple of weeks ago I went to Macy's to buy a suit, a shirt and a tie.
My first ever suit. I'm a grown-up now.
The guy with the tape measure around his neck helped me out, measured me up, suggested a tie, etc.
He put the wax marks on my suit for the alterations that I would need. He took down my name and phone number. He even gave me HIS employee discount on my purchase.
(was he hitting on me?)
Anyhow...he said it would take a couple of weeks to get the suit back from the tailor and that they would call me (that's why he took my phone number)
My cell phone rings today.
I pick up the phone. Here is the conversation:
CINDY: "Hi...is Steve there?"
ME: "This is Steve. May I help you?"
CINDY: "Well...my name is Cindy and I work at the CVS in FARAWAY-TOWN."
CINDY: "Well, today UPS delivered a package to me here and I thought it was for my husband but I think it's for you."
ME: "What's in the package...my OXY?"
CINDY: "It's a man's suit."
ME: "What man?"
CINDY: "It's a new suit from Macy's."
ME: "Crap...that's MY suit!! For my daughter's wedding!!"
CINDY: "I order a lot from Macy's...someohow they shipped it to me by mistake."
ME: "Can you ship it to me?"
blah blah blah details address thank you laughs etc
The point of the story?
My first daughter is getting married and I bought my first suit ever.
.... and it's coming from a drug store.
And for some reason that amuses me.
