Well hello! We're down to our last week in sunny San Jose. You might think it's a little odd that we have still empty shipping containers sitting in the driveway, but they'll get filled. We're actually lucky that we have containers at all! Lemme 'splain - we're using Door-to-Door moving; we agreed to get the containers yesterday (Monday) and have them picked up Friday. They were dropped off no problem. John had 'em placed in the driveway so that he could access all three at once but still park the truck in the driveway at night for added security. This morning he ran some errands, and when he got home he parked in the driveway because he knew he wasn't going to be loading anything right then. That proved to be huge! An hour later, someone came to the back door to tell John some guy wanted him to move his truck. John went out to the driveway, and found a Door-to-Door employee on a forklift. The following conversation ensued:
Mindless Door-to-Door drone #23,542, sits on the running forklift. John stares in disbelief, and gives a what-the-hell sign with his hands. DTD drone shuts off the forklift.
Drone: Yeah, I need you to move your truck. I can't get to the containers with it here.
John: You're obviously confused. These were dropped off yesterday and are to be picked up Friday.
Drone: No, I'm picking them up now.
John: No, you're not.
Drone: Yeah, they told me my pick up is on McKendrie Street.
John: McKendrie's a long street. Did you check the address?
Drone: I'm supposed to pick these up.
John: Dude. These got dropped off yesterday. I haven't even put anything in 'em yet.
Drone: Oh, okay. Sorry about that.
And that was it. If John hadn't parked in the driveway, the drone would have taken the containers away and we would have had lots of fun trying to get them back out here so we could load 'em before we leave. Probably a nice fat headache. Instead, we just have a funny story about a mindless drone who doesn't know the significance of the numbers on houses.
