Hey all,
I haven't been on this site in over three months due to a certain embarrasment i feel.
AGES ago I agreed to send a book via snail mail to someone from this site and she was going to send me one in return!
I procrastenated for about two weeks in wich time this person sent me her book as promised....
Then a death in the family brought me to N.Z for a month or so.
Upon my return to Canada we closed on our first home and moved!
We then started renovations and are still working on that.
Amongst all this the books remain with me! And my poor friend is still out there waiting...
Here's the thing-I LOST THE ADDRESSED ENVELOPE in the move! And I DELETED THE EMAILS! So now I have three books that i want to send to this person with my apologies but I can't remember who it was to send her a request...if she still even wants me dumb book.
Are you out there? Who are you? Can anyone help me?
XOXXOOX
The Jerk with the books (playing around with this as my new user name).

Stuff happens. I'm proud of you for coming back and admitting a mistake. That's not easy and it says a lot about you. :hug:

Was this trade started in a thread somewhere then taken to email? Could you still have a PM here on KH about it? Maybe one of these things will help. Hope you find out who it was.

You all are being really great...I didn't expect such nice comments :) Jan the trade was discussed in the chat room! And then we went into PM's but I deleted them by accident (still not really sure how I managed it) I'm a compu-tard. I hope whoever it is sees this thread. I was afraid she would have posted a thread by now about my bad behaviour but I guess not!
I wouldn't have blamed her tho.
Where are you girl!? I got some books for ya!

ALSO! Something else in my defense, the little dog you see in my profile pic was hit by a car and had her leg broken and her pelvis (in three places).
I forgot about that.
Thanks again for the kind words, I KNOW i'll find her here.

If you click on your user name, you can find all your public posts. Maybe something will ring a bell.

Good luck!

KHers are really understanding, I'm sure you'll find the person you need! I'm SO sorry to hear about your baby getting hit by a car.

For a minute there I thought that you were going to say the dog eat the address -I hope the little guy is doing OK.

IMHO You might also consider changing the thread title to something like. "Apology - I forgot to send you your book - need address"

dhorsh over at Raverly posted this story and when I got up off the floor I had to pass it along.



"Yesterday I was buying 2 large bags of Purina dog chow at Wal-Mart for my dogs, Cricket and Sugarfoot. I was about to check out when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Did she think that I had an elephant?
Since I had little else to do, on impulse, I said, “No, I don’t have a dog, but I am starting the Purina Diet again, although I probably shouldn’t because I ended up in the hospital last time. On the bright side though, I’d lost 50 pounds before I woke up in the Commerce hospital with tubes coming out of every orifice in my body and intravenous tubes in both arms."


I went on with my story saying, “Purina Dog Chow is essentially a perfect diet. The way it works is to load your pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. It’s nutritionally complete so I am going to try it again.”


I must mention here that practically everyone in the line was enthralled with my story by now."


Horrified, the woman asked if I ended up in the hospital because the dog food had poisoned me. I said, “No, I stopped in the middle of the parking lot to lick my butt, and a car hit me.”
I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was laughing so hard!"


The WAL-MART store here in Commerce won’t let me shop there anymore."

Good idea. I was thinking it needed to be a bit more specific, but couldn't think how it could be worded.

Go to your first post and click Edit. The Title will come up as well as the post and you can retype it. Then click Save Changes and the thread name will be changed.

Life happens, we've all been there at some point. I'm sure it will work out in the end.

Great of you to post it here in an attempt to make things right. It shows character.

Don't hide out from now on, you miss out on too much and so do we.

Thank you psquidy for answering my PM. I didn't think you were the one that I made the trade with, but I wasn't sure.

Perhaps if that person is reading this thread it will jog their memory to honor the trade promise they made with me.

It's no big deal. I can live without the book. I was just wondering if she might have been dissatisfied with the book I sent her then decided to just not follow through with the trade.

Things in life do come around that hinder and change what we do sometimes. Thank you for being forthright and honest.
