Patience

Patience is truly a virtue bloggie friends!

I ordered something online and clicked the "send" button - when everything stalled. So I did what I always do when this happens. I clicked on the "send" button several times.

Worried that nothing went through I emailed their customer services who very nicely replied quickly with the following:

***********************
Hi Jennifer,
thanks for your order. Yes, the form is filled out just fine, although it did arrive five times...!
***********************

LOL!!

Charlie says: The cursing and the fish woke me up.



Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

I did that once, kept clicking, and customer service emailed me to ask if I really wanted 7 of the item. Glad you got through to them.

ABBY said...

Oh Charlie
Is that the way you like to sleep?
We think you are a total doll baby!!!

5 time?\\\ <~~~~ that was Abby walking across the laptop....
now...
5 times?
:::hehehehe:::
Good thing you contacted customer service, I wonder if they would have sent you the same thing x5?

Your Mommy certainly is lucky that she wasn't CHARGED five times!!! OMC!!!

xoxoxo

Charlie says if five fish arrive, that's all right with him!

Deborah said...

Patience is always a good thing. Just today, I tried to teach my son that lesson at a doctors office after we waited for 1 hour! But we then left before being seen. That was patient enough! We are going in a few weeks first thing in the morning!

Hi Jennifer,
Don't you hate it when that happens? Lucky you were able to speak to a live person, otherwise you'd have ended up paying for the same item 5x's ;)
Charlie looks so adorable!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I would have done the same thing...My brilliant hubby ordered double orders at a retail store by over clicking.

Summer Ross said...

cursing and fish what a combo! Have a wonderful weekend!

dArtagnan Rumblepurr/Diego Hamlet Moonfur said...

Oh Charlie, you could be in 'Playgirlcat Magazine'!

Margo Benson said...

That's so funny! MrB had to explain the whole 'Send' thing to me a while ago :-)

Madeleine said...

OMGosh. I did that once and got sent 2 copies of the same thing. I had to pay to have the second one returned! :O0

Fuzzy Tales said...

LOL! I've done that with emails or comment posts, not orders. Good thing you contacted them. :-)

You just never know, though, if the form has gotten through or if it's gone into a cyber black hole.

Happy weekend to both you and Charlie!

Talli Roland said...

Haha! This *so* sounds like something I'd do. :)

Have a great weekend!

Marg said...

LOL, that is something I would do.You just never know when things actually go through, so just click it at least 29 times. Charlie, that darn Mom keeps waking you up. Do try to have a most wonderful week end.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Jenn you and mum must be born under the "impatient" sign - she gets furry cross when the computer doesn't obey her quickly enough and does that too!!
Charlie keep your head down like we do - it's the only way.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Ann Best said...

Oh Charlie, you made me laugh. I love laughter at 8 a.m. This is EARLY for me.

I'm so excited, Jennifer, to know what you think of my book. When you finish it, if you like it, would you write a review for Amazon? Doesn't have to be long, just a few sentences of praise and 5 stars LOL!!

I need reviews over there right because a friend is trying to help get my book into a library and they look at Amazon reviews. Thanks SO much! Jen sends her love, too!!!

Simon Kewin said...

As long as they don't send you five of them, all should be well!

Brian said...

HeeHee, you've got the weekend clicking already!!! Get comfy Charlie!

Clarissa Draper said...

I do that all the time! Hopefully you didn't order five items.

Creepy Query Girl said...

bwahaha! I am so guilty of this!

Heather Kelly said...

I have definitely done this. LOL. My latest test in non-patience was when I hadn't received a package that I had ordered 8 days after it mailed, and I emailed the customer service to find out where the package was. They replied that it might not arrive for 20 business days. I replied that I would never purchase from their company again. (I did receive the package the next day. But still.) Love the kitty picture!

Stephen Tremp said...

I hope you didn't get charged five times. Have a great weekend yourself. Charlie looks like he's already enjoying his.

Hart Johnson said...

Ack! You're very lucky you could confirm with a real person or they might have CHARGED YOU five times and SENT IT five times...

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Oh my --it's good you contacted them or you would have been billed five times!

Charlie looks so cute stretching out this way! It's a good way to keep cool.

I have been in Colorado all week visiting my grandsons. They are both growing fast and I miss them so much. Now my daughter is moving there. Guess who will have to become even more of a frequent flyer?

Lydia K said...

I have to refrain from doing the "click five time" thing. I can relate!

Have a great weekend!

Random Felines said...

At least they didn't charge you five times. :) Mom gets impatient like that too...and then can't figure out why she gets all those error messages. MOL

Rene said...

LOL! We're glad they contacted you to let you know.

Tucker The Crestie said...

Mom has been known to do this a few times herself. Patience schmacience!

Bossy Betty said...

Glad Charlie was able to get back to sleep after the trauma!

fairyhedgehog said...

Oh 'eck! It's a good job you rang them.

fairyhedgehog said...

Oh 'eck! It's a good job you rang them.

William Kendall said...

Ah, technology!

And Charlie is unbearably cute as always.

Daniela said...

My mom doesn't have patience either and sometimes I hear her swear like a sailor. I think that's pretty normal. Glad it worked out though.

Lynda R Young said...

Go on, I know you want to send it again ;)

m.q said...

sometimes we did do like that rite??
hahahah

Theresa Milstein said...

Ha! Hopefully they don't charge you 5 times!

Hansel said...

hahahahaha that's pretty funny charlie.

Especially the part about the fish. How'd he even get there?! who leaves a fish on the bed?! :)

You looked mighty comfy tooooo!!!

"Old Kitty",

That's a riot! Thank God you called customer service to ask about your order.

Charlie's got the right idea; sleep through the cussin'.

The Golden Eagle said...

That happened to me once--the site being clicked actually said "Whoa, slow down there, bucko! This takes time to process"--or something along that line. It was pretty funny. :P

laughingwolf said...

mayhap you need all FIVE? :O lol

Len Lambert said...

Hi Old Kitty! :) It happens to me all the time, the screen freezes and I always think it's not working, then it sends it a hundred times! There was one time I was making comments on blogs when the screen froze so I kept clicking 'publish comment'...well, you guessed it right, it published my message like a thousand times. LOL.

Have a lovely weekend!

Teri calls that 'mindless button pushing' and she is guilty of it, too...

Al said...

I accidentally bought three months worth of rail passes exactly the same way a while ago!

Boonie S said...

Patience is a virtue – not that I’d know anything about that…..
Charlie has my sympathy.

All the best, Boonie

Manzanita said...

I learn the very hard way. I did that but didn't call and got 6 of the same item. Oh woe is me !!!! Happened to be books so then I had to ship the heavy things back. UUUgggghhh.

Patsy said...

I've forgotten what I was going to say because I've spotted the verification code word thingy is mogyli - as your moggy lies about a lot, that seems so appropriate.

Ellie Garratt said...

Five? Oh, my. Good job they noticed!

notesfromnadir said...

Sounds like something I've done. By the way, make sure you check your credit card statement so you don't get charged for it 5 times!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

oooh, Jan has days like those. Let's just hope they don't bill you five times. :)
