I’m afraid the FedEx man might hate me…. every time he makes a delivery, it is larger and heavier than the last. I try to charm him with my smile and large green eyes, but I fear it doesn’t work. Last time he complained that his arms hurt and begrudgingly grinned as he walked out the door.
A few weeks back I had the task of shipping over 1,000 MacBook and iPad cases as the first of our Holiday shipments. This process is tedious. Once the goods arrive from Ghana, I must inspect every single piece for quality control, label and individually package them. It may sound simple, but the process can take days to complete.
To get this done I must to call upon all friends, family & interns to help. I know they are happy to do so, but I fear using up all of my “favors.” It took three nights, several helping hands, and even my own mother to help with the process. To show my appreciation I supplied ample amounts of pizza and wine.
While all this was going on, I had another deadline: my cousin was getting married and I had to leave for the festivities in Lake Tahoe. Fortunately, Team Della came through and we boxed everything just hours before my scheduled trip.
