A genuine email exchange from ‘work’

I am currently enjoying working for my lovely husband, packing flags and flag stuff for him. Occasionally, I make mistakes when packing. Here is an email exchange between my husband and a customer (obviously with names and order number changed!!)

Dear sales team, first may I commend you on your prompt dispatch of goods, I have recently taken delivery of a 50 piece packet of pirate flag sticks, which are in perfect condition and amusing to look at, these comical tooth picks however are not the lapel pin badge which I had ordered. Could you please send me the article which I have ordered and include a self addressed stamped envelope which I shall use to return to you in perfect saleable condition the package which you have mis-erroneously sent to me.
Many thanks, Customer.

Hi Customer,
Firstly many apologies and I will make the packer responsible walk the plank…
Secondly please keep the cocktail sticks with my compliments and I
will arrange for dispatch of the lapel pin in the next post.
Once again many apologies

I then dispatched the correct item, adding a note saying something about being soaking wet and apologies for the mistake.

Dear Capin Green an his Motley Crew.
I have gratefully received my lapel pin badge which is now gracefully adorning my foul weather waxed jacket, it was with great mirth and merriment that I read the amendment which had been made to the delivery note, I feel that the dripping wet plank walking packer may have been dealt with a little severely for what can only be described as a minor digression, maybe a gentle flogging would have sufficed, but that is a different website entirely. My regards to Pants and good luck in your future endeavours, if ever I feel the need I shall not hesitate to transact with your company again.
Many thanks, Customer of the good ship Lollypop.

  1. Half a sec, what’s this? Flags? Blimmin hecK – and here I’ve been slaving over a hot pair of scissors making bunting for GB when I could have asked you to do it instead! 😉

    Never mind…
