Writing 101,day four-serially lost-part three

I enjoyed teaching in Gander. The kids were wonderful. Some of them visited Florida several times.

One day David brought a large shell for me from Florida. He was a shy boy, he quietly laid it on my desk.

His friend Jamie said, “Miss did you not notice David brought you a gift from Florida, put it on your ears you will hear the sound of the ocean.”

I did and thanked David profusely for his thoughtfulness and laid it on my desk.

Next day when I entered my classroom  the first thing I noticed, the shell was missing!

365 Writing Prompts: Are you being served?

What’s the most dreadful (or wonderful) experience you’ve ever had as a customer?

I bought a shop vac from a local hardware store, when I tried to put it together I found the important parts missing. I took it back to the store’s customer service, the sales lady ,looked at me and said we are not taking these  back.

I was unhappy, I asked her, “Why won’t you take it back?”

She said some customers bought a similar  shop vac used it and decided to return it.

I told her, she should have asked me the reason for returning the appliance.

I opened the box and showed her there were parts missing.

When she realized she had made a mistake, she talked to someone over the phone, and then refunded my money.

I guess in my case I’d have to agree ,with the saying,”All is well that ends well.”
