Well imagine my surprise when I received a collection letter from HBC last week. HBC is the oldest store in Canada. I was so sure I'd paid my bill in time. I don't get collection notices very often so it gets me flustered every single time!
So I logged in my bank's web site to check this out and yes it turns out I'd forgotten to pay them (!"/$%?&*)
Then I read the letter again, turns out I forgot to pay 5$; only five dollars, FIVE BUCKS AND THEY HAVE THE GALL TO SEND ME A COLLECTION LETTER????? And to think I've been a customer of theirs for ever!
Heck it costs more to print and send the letter! I'm gonna give them a pievce of my mind! (I was going to call them today but I didn't the 16 digits of my credit card.....)
Yesterday I got a plaque with my name on it at the office! I was speechless and a little teary....But nobody saw...
Now for the thrifting!
At Renaissance (the only thrift shop I have regular access) the pickings are usually slim, the staff is different (I suspect they hire quote special people unquote, know what I mean?) and the customers are REALLY obnoxious, horrible, stinky, lost, desperate. This is Verdun afterall. Even with some gentrification Verdun is still sometimes sad, dirty and there's a lot of people with mental illness living there because a big mental hospital nearby.
But last week my heart stopped, then went pitter pater, beding bedang and I had to grab at a shelf to steady my self....
Vintage snail dishes from the 60's by Le Creuset!
I got 4; 2 orange 2 jade green.
Here Yoda is checking out the interior.
I believe they have never been used, SWEET!
So no Pyrex but Le Creuset is delicious too.
If I have a burglar in my house I can get rid of him with a quick flick of the wrist and one of these dishes! They weigh a ton!
Well that is it for little old me, i'm off to dream land
Sweet dreams my friends :)
