I blame the holiday; this is a very popular vacation time in the US, and it's entirely possible the people Reaper needs are out of the office until next week.

 

This is true for Canada as well - the first was Canada day. And if the people at UPS they need are in Calgary, you have the compounding factors of the recent flooding, the train derailment and the Calgary Stampede adding to that.

 

I work in Denver on a contract to a Canadian company in Calgary, and I hate this time of year because not only do I often wind up being the only one manning the phones the 1st-3rd thanks to the combination of Canada Day and the Stampede, but we also have a rush of US customers rushing to deal with things before their holiday.

 

This year has been worse because of the timing of the two holidays, plus the recent issues in Calgary, plus the Reaper KS banner demotivating me to do work even more.

Have you seen any names you know,

as you keep pressing the key,

watching to see if they're a stone's throw,

from either you or me,

 

Are you happy? Are you satisfied?

has your order got me beat?

to the sound of F5 keys, yeah yeah yeah

I think I'm at 23 line items. It's fun to watch the counter, but also torture.

I'm at 23 as well. Since they appear to be working both small to large and large to small, I figure those of us in the mid 20's stand a chance of being in the running for Last Shipment. I'm hoping they have a fabulous prize for the last order shipped. Maybe an extra Mr. Bones?

I'm fairly certain mine will be last for threatening to streak through the facility after the Bones machine was installed. There was mention of sparklers and glowsticks and other assorted things that won't be repeated, and I've no idea what Bryan will include in my order.

They moved faster than I anticipated, so my naked antics will have to wait for the next Reaper milestone. I recall bustin' Bryan's chops with this and yes, it was a while ago.

I believe my oldest daughter and I will work on building a TARDIS while waiting....

Good idea; you're gonna need the space. :blink:

Her idea entirely, she's not even interested in the bones. She even picked out an LED bulb, micro switch, and mount for a 9v battery for the lamp on top.

 

Yup, my 'little girl' is now officially a teen-geek!
