Ring, Ring

This is what I get for answering my cell phone:

"Hello."

"Is this Sizzle?"

"Yes, this is Ms. Sizzle."

"Did you get my messages?"

"Um, no?"

"You left red sweater here. You need to pick up."

"Red sweater? Where?"

"Mission Dry Cleaner. It been here two year."

"Two years!?"

"Uh huh. If you don't come get it, I donate it."


. . .Um . . .Shouldn't you have done that . . already?

I mean: Two. Years.

Huh. . I wonder if it is cute?


P.S. This makes me laugh so much.

Are you sure that wasn't a practical joke? Al actually pulled that joke on me once. He had a perfect accent down and everything. He convinced me that I had left a dress at the dry cleaners for a very long time. I went to pick it up and had a really embarassing conversation with the dry cleaner.

Remind me to kick Al's ass.

Was he Asian? It sounded like it the way you wrote your posting? I my just have to hook you up with Wong from my work.

Wow! I guess you didn't give a crap about that sweater! I always thought that anything left longer than a month got pitched. If its not a joke, you've got a pretty nice cleaner.

Kevin said...

And you have no idea whatsoever what sweater it could be?

That's hillarious! I'm suprised they could still find your contact information and that since they obviously still had it, why they didn't get in touch with you MUCH earlier. But hey, if it is cute, it will be like having a new sweater!

sandra said...

Wow. That's fabulous. If it's a sweater that you adore, it's kind of like finding a $20 in the pocket of a jacket you haven't worn in ages -- such a good surprise...like shopping without spending money...

I'd be suspicious...

Dan said...

re: suspicion... call up Mission Dry Cleaners and ask about a sweater that might have been left there. Problemo solved.

That's funny. My guess it that it can't be that cute if you didn't even notice it missing to begin with. This sounds like a practical joke in the making. Perhaps you should send someone to the cleaners for you. That way, if it is a joke, you aren't the one who looks like an ass. :)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! (times two!)

Feeling better yet???

gorillabuns said...

if this sweater was missing for two years, how come they didn't call before now? especially, if they knew this sweater belonged to you.

somethings sounds a little fishy to me but then i think everything is a trick question/situation.

Wow, nothing like keeping up with inventory.

My word verification is OROFC - HA
Not that it has anything to do with Sweaters...and if it does, then I wouldn't want it back if I were you.

Bill said...

This would never have happened in my world. The phone would ring. I'd see the call display, "Mission Dry Cleaner." I'd think, "What are they selling? I don't want any." And never would have answered.

This may explain why I can never find my sweaters.

Are you sure it's not anonymous sweater-lover prank calling you?

jenny said...

Don't they start charging rent after the first year?
