Champion shopper

How do we end up doing some of the jobs we do? At work, totally unrelated to what I do, somehow I ended up being the employee responsible for ordering the office supplies for my department. Maybe because people knew I was a big online shopper? No, when I started doing it I had a catalogue and an order sheet that I had to fax to the company we shopped from. Sheesh. Didn't realize I had been doing it that long.

Once a month my Outlook calendar reminds me to send out an email to my co-workers asking them if they need anything, that I will be ordering in the next few days and they can email their requests to me. I do my best to find what everyone asks for but doggone it - sometimes even a champion shopper like me comes up short!

But I DID try.

Sorry Laura.

That's hilarious!! Perhaps they were just out of stock. Did you try 6 ft 2" or even 6 ft 1 "?

I have one of those, but Laura can't have him.

Laura is 6 feet tall so I guess she wants to be able to wear a small heel. :)

Mahala said...

I want one too, should you happen to come across one :)

I have to do all the ordering as well at work.. Never had a request for such an item yet though!
