Lets try to get vendors to ship odd things with your internet order!!!

While ordering some magnets for my windshield shade for my MOHO I noticed a special instructions box at the bottom of the web page. I wondered what I could type in that box....I usually type " thank you". This time I typed "please ship my order along with a picture of a pink unicorn". This is what I saw when I opened the box......my entire family laughed for a long time. Let's see what you can come up with....

I used to deal with a parts supplier who always threw a bag or two of M&M's in with the order. Just a small way to show their appreciation.

I used to work in the service department of a scuba diving store (that was my retirement job after I retired the first time. I am now COMPLETELY retired). Anyway, we stapled a miniature candy bar to every invoice that went out. We ended up with a printed list on the shipping desk: Customer A doesn't like Snickers, Customer B is allergic to peanuts, Customer C prefers Crunch bars etc etc. It was a small gesture but great for customer relations.

At a restaurant the waitress asked if there was anything else she could get me. I gave her my standard reply "A pot of gold."

She returned in a few minutes with a paper that she had drawn a pot of gold on and had colored it.

It's still on the bulletin board in our coach.

I wish more vendors would ask for special directions. My shipping address is a PMB in a large corner strip mall. I've had a lot of trouble with vendors thinking PMB is POB or PO Box (which means their software will drop the street address) or the street address field is too short and the suite number gets truncated. When there is a place for it, I tell the vendor that PMB means Private Mail Box, not POB or PO Box and the suite number is critical and can't be left off. Even then, there are vendors who manage to mess it up.

Now a sack of $100 bills would be nice. I've been ordering quite a bit lately I think I'll give it a try.

in reverse order;
My DW once ask me if I was going to leave the waitress a tip,
got a napkin and wrote on it "TIP: Stay out of dark alleys"
