In response to daily post’s prompt: Missing
I took the roll call and found Harry Missing
I was about to call, when I heard him Screeching
Miss, ‘Sorry I’m late,
The driver didn’t wait,
I had to gather enough steam to come running!’
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!
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.”
