Internet Shopping FAIL

Sometimes the interwebs just do you wrong, ya know?

Take, for example, the Burpee order I placed weeks ago.  Shipping live plants didn’t seem risky to me considering that baby chicks are shipped via USPS all the time.  But these vegetables were doomed (the same fate many baby chicks face as well, I suppose).  They shipped out later than promised and arrived today deader than acceptable.

Parsley

The basil and two of the tomato plants will recover, but Burpee is dead to me now.

In other news, I was excited to find a wool kilim runner for cheap ($40!) on Overstock.com. “Why do you need more rugs?” you might ask. To which I would reply “Shut it.

Problem is, though they share the same item number, one of these is not like the other.

Runner Fail

To their credit, they did send me a rug.  A long one, even.  So, points for effort, I guess.
