Default Pathetic Admission and You are to Blame!

I'm sitting here trolling SCS when I hear the distinct sounds of a delivery truck rolling up my street. My heart literally started to beat faster and I'm not expecting anything! I blame YOU guys.

I'm not going to single out any one person but does the word "'tini" ring a bell??

I make that jump every time I hear the truck, even when I'm not expecting anything.

When I turned onto my street tonight after work and saw UPS parked near my house I got all excited....until I remembered I had nothing more coming this week. Sigh....can't wait until the new catalog. I need some new toys.

My UPS guy has always given my dogs treats when he brings a package -- so when they hear the truck on our street, they get all excited. And since most dogs have excellent hearing, I get a very advanced warning that the truck is near. I can't believe how dejected the dogs are when the truck just keeps on rolling past the house without stopping.

This afternoon the FedEx guy shows up at my door. Knowing that both TAC and SU ship UPS and that I wasn't expecting anything didn't help to lower my blood pressure or slow my heartrate. What's up with THAT?

ok so now I know that I'm not the only one!!! the best is when I am driving in the car with DH and we pass Mr Brown in our neighborhood. He INSTANTLY looks at me with that "what did you get this time" look!!! I have gotten to the point that anytime we pass him, I now look back at him and say "nothing honey, I promise"!!!!!

I *sooooo* hear you! Last year I was not-so-patiently waiting for my new box of catalogs to arrive. I heard the familiar rumbling coming up the street, and was absolutely devastated to discover a water delivery truck pulling up in front of the neighbor's house. Yep, I live a sad li'l life

I am in the same boat - I have the neighborhood kids as an early warning system

I know the feeling, there are 2 of us in our cul-de-sac that get deliveries, and it is so sad for me to see him take a U-turn through without stopping at me house.

Yesterday Mr. Brown came and rang my doorbell (usually he just drops the package and runs!). He had a package for someone else in his hands wondering if I knew who the addressee was, as the address didn't exist (no 9400 on my street...) I wished him luck in trying to find the recipient and said "see you soon..."

Can you picture a bunch of SU Demo Ladies chasing a UPS truck down the street in hopes of a SU package??? Like children chasing an Ice Cream truck...It makes me think of a FUNNY commercial! LOL!

That's just too funny - I can relate. My kids (5 & 6) sometimes get the letters mixed up and instead of UPS, they call it the SUP truck (yup - short for Stampin' Up truck) and then they yell for me to come to the door because my stamping stuff is here

Te second my husband walked in the door my son used to blurt out "mom got another package today." Put a stop to that one by leaving my packages on the kitchen table! Took all the fun away from my son.

Too funny. Just Friday, my dh & I were sitting on the front porch when UPS trolls by...

DH gave me that look - you know the one -
I told him I wasn't expecting anything (yet)

OMG...this thread has me laughing hysterically!! Someone else that does the same thing as I do...sort of makes me feel like I'm "normal" and my addiction is "okay"!!! LOL The UPS guy doesn't usually come (I'm not a demo and don't order much online that is ordered via UPS) but I do RUN through the house with the bags of goodies I've scored and go straight to my stamping closet with them before dh can see! Of course, when my demo drops an order by, he gives me "that look"!

I can hear the delivery truck in the neighborhood right now. Unfortunately it's not coming here. (sigh) This is hilariously funny because my heart rate goes up too when the delivery truck comes or even the mail lady in her truck because I swap pretty regularly via SCS. My current order will come via the neighbor's house so I won't get the look from my honey this time... tee hee.....

Joan! That is hilarious!

We laugh because at our house, even my 6 yr old knows that the UPS guy is a "sign of prosperity"... according to my husband. We're ALL pavlov's puppy in that regard!

Thanks for the laugh!

This is the funniest (and truest thread!!)
I used to be a CM consultant and I used to see my UPS guy so much that I bought him a gift card for Christmas!
Haven't established a relationship with the new one since I moved.
Not yet, there's still 7 months til Christmas!!

I think my DIL, who happens to be my demo, has you all beat! Instead of waiting patiently for the UPS truck to bring new catalogs or a huge stampin order she calls UPS and has them deliver her box to the nearest UPS store first thing that morning. So no more waiting for us!!!
