Default Paper Piecing Punch delivered by Budget Rental!!?

Just received my long awaited paper piecing punches from SU. I heard something, looked outside and saw a Budget Rental Truck in the street across from my house. Thought, hmm, thats strange nobody is moving.... Then saw the UPS man get out of the truck with my package!!

He walked up and delivered my package....poor guy I think he's tired of people asking about the truck. Apparently we are keeping UPS so busy that they had to go rent trucks to get them all delivered!!

I thought it was pretty funny.

Great cold and icy state of Minnesota! Can you believe the ice this morning? Saw you are in St. Paul - I'm in Burnsville.

That's just too funny about the Budget Rental truck... the poor guy being pestered about his truck all day!

I'm expecting a Supply order shipment. I'll have to make sure to look in the driveway when it comes!

I finally got my punch last week and have been so busy trying to get all my Christmas stuff done I haven't even got to use it yet. Now if that isn't sad I don't know what is.

I just had a visit from my USP guy and in St. Paul they are still using the brown trucks here. But he sure was cute.

UPS does that every year around Christmas. They usually hire or use other employees to deliver and have to use rental trucks for those people. My UPS man is my hubby so I know this stuff!! I'm just happy to be getting some of this stuff that's been on backorder. Here's hoping my paper piecing punch arrives today!!!

Hee hee, so do you get to see him during the day make deliveries, or does he just bring it home with him at night?? (It would suck to know you have something coming and have to wait to get it at night...)

Default UPS

Well my UPS guy didn't come in a Rent-A-Truck, but he was hauling a mid sized trailer on the back of his truck. Never saw this until this year and had to laugh. Guess our business is doing pretty good huh? Well at least it's a happy thought!

Default Paper Piecing Punch

I just got mine the other day also. When you punched with it the first few times did it leave wet spots on your cs? Is this grease or something? I'm hoping it only does this the first few times. Carol

Mine did too. I think it's manufacturing residue. I punched a few times using cheapo paper/cardstock and it works great now.
