No “P” for me

12/18/08



no P-1.JPGSome people have no X-mas spirit. A few months back I bought some lettering for the back of my Rockies Jersey. It was the letters to spell Rockpile Ranter. Yesterday I finally had some time to lay out the letters and see how it looked.

I remember opening up the letter when it arrived in the mail. I checked and was sure all the letters were all there. Then I put them away for safekeeping.

                                  Somehow I lost my freggin “P”

So I’m wondering what the hell I’m going to do. Changing my blog name isn’t an option, that can come back and bite you. After some thought, I decided to contact the guy on Ebay who

The email I sent him said that I purchased the letters a while back, and when I went to apply them to the Jersey, I was missing the “P”.

 I mentioned that I wasn’t accusing him of not sending my “P”, I was just in need of a good “P” so I could complete my “Pile”.

 

Letter_P_Tree[1].JPGI asked this dude if I could purchase a stand alone “P” , and I was curious how much one “P” would cost me.

He responded back with “seven dollars for a “P”.

Holy P-pot man, I couldn’t believe it, I’ve never paid for a “P” before, and the fact that hePeeing 1.JPG wanted seven dollars for one tiny little “P”, at X-mas time just floored me.

Some people, I tell you.

 I hope this is the last time I’m ever in bad need of a “P”.

 It’s bad enough just needing a “P”, but paying twice for a “P” pretty pathetic. I guess that’s the chance you take with online retailers. No face to face interaction.

It’s harder to tell me it’s going to cost seven dollars when I’m standing right in front of you :) 

So in hindsight, always check and make sure you have your “P” because there is nothing worse than a P-less Pile.

   I’m off to the “P”avilion “P”arty/ Dinner for Season ticket holders, I’ll take plenty of pictures…DThumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Green Floppy Hat.JPG

That sucks. I’m sorry. I want to see the jersey when it’s complete, though!

Will there be “P for two” at the party? ;-) Have a great time and can’t wait to see the pics! Hope it warmed up some there.

That would make me pretty P’d off indeed. That Nuggets game looked like a blast! Like the aquisition of Billups, bringing him back to his home state. Was painful to watch how the Nuggets romped the Raptors by 40 points the other week.

$7! Dang, what’s wrong with people? I would think that given the number of vendors on Ebay, the guy would take the opportunity to do a little “P”R to insure continued business. I’d be “P”O’d fer sure.
Can’t wait to hear about the “P”avillion “P”arty.
(Yeah, sorry, the cold medication is taking its toll)

Back from the party, started to blog, tried to upload a picture, it had me sign in again and I lost it all. So I’ll have to try again tomorrow.
Homie-the Nuggets have been doing some stuff man, JR Smith is developing, chemistry is good, they’re fun to watch live.
R-Luv-some people don’t get it (or don’t want to get it), I see it every day.
Julia-It’s a bit warmer, but anything is up from Mondays temp :)…D
Kylie-I went back and posted a picture of the incomplete jersey for you…D
