One dead on, Two dead wrong

After my last post, I used my Groupon to buy some nice things for myself.  I needed a new calendar for my drab janitor closet office, and I usually wait until after the new year to get them on sale.  I also found a couple DVDs I wanted.  I made my order and patiently waited all week for them to arrive.  But the last laugh was on me.

First I ordered 2 DVDs.  I ordered Shaun of the Dead, because it’s a hilarious cult zombie classic!  (Little trivia about Sally, she loves zombie movies, the campier the better!)  I also ordered Run Fat Boy Run, because it’s actually a very inspiring movie (yes it involves running) and a cute love story, with typical Simon Pegg humor thrown in for good measure.  Great movies for the collection.  However, this is what I got instead…


I felt like the shipping facility was judging me.  Hey I run several days a week and work out pretty regularly thank you!

But I also ordered my new calendar.  And the correct calendar arrived.  So maybe they were actually in on my little joke and making a hat tip to my calendar choice by sending DVD substitutes.

See, it was dead on!

  1. I’m not sure the correct calendar makes up for those DVDs.

  2. Haha! In all fairness, I called them and they are express shipping me the correct DVDs and also sending me a return mailer for the wrong DVDs. The customer service makes up for it for sure!

  3. Yep the dvd’s were not even close…. funny that I saw Shaun of the dead the other night !! Have you seen Hot Fuzz by Simon Pegg, just as good….

  4. I have a Dave Lebovitz book for you! Send me your address when you get a chance? 🙂

  5. love those films, enjoy!!
