Random tidbit

Hi, sorry I wasn't around this weekend. We are rushing to get things done for Christmas.

Random story: I always order my calendars from Costco. This would be the 3rd year. I am generally really happy with them, but they changed their software this year. Not only was it much harder to put together online, but they printed completely wrong. I had 6 different calendars printed (different dates on the calendar for birthdays, but all the tops were the same). Half the top pages were blank! After going through their system, I got them to redo the order. Guess what? Same issues! Now, with only a week until Christmas, they issued me a full refund. But I need the calendars for Christmas, so yesterday I started printing all the calendar tops out on my computer (tons of ink!) and I'm gluing them to the tops of the calendars. It is working although taking forever. Goodness, what a hassle!

They look decent. I would say they look good, but my only issue is it looks funny that 1/3 of the pages are digital and the other 2/3 have them added. Oh well, Dave thinks most won't notice.

ugh...sorry you had all that trouble with them. I am having loads of similar experiences lately and am constantly wondering why stores suck in customer satisfaction now. lol
