I'm at work trying to knock out masses of tasks when I get a call from Fedex - my shipment was set up improperly by the Fedex Kinkos store guy, and they’re going to send it back - mementos and gifts from our wedding...too much stuff to lug onto the plane.
I'm at work trying to knock out masses of tasks when I get a call from Comcast - they want to give me cable TV.
