An addition to the family... ?????????

Okay, so we're home. Along the route I ran into at least 13 things that I thought were "bloggable" ... and yet, when I got home, I was met with something the trumped ALL of that!

Yep - I get home to a card - addressed to "the C family" - which is our name - at our address... so the ManOfTheHouse opened it of course..


Imagine his surprise!!!!
I mean... when I left town I only had the 5 kids he knew about... so is he expecting me to bring home an extra?

The card was signed by "Tom and Cindy" - which are the names of my aunt and uncle - so he's thinking that it's either legit or an honest mistake and they meant to send it to another niece? I think by this time M.O.T.H. is afraid I've been keeping a secret even better than his sister Megz! (who prefer to wait until the blessing day to announce that she's prego)

Okay - so really, the explanation is quite simple as there is ANOTHER Q.C. in town... we've received a number of phone calls for them in the past... if we were EVIL we might have been able to capitalize on this... or at least have chosen a really bad granite color for their counters when those people called... but NO, we've politely told them that they had the wrong number...

I get it - not everyone wants to be called constantly and asked if you're THAT Q.C.... right? I get it... well, mostly because now WE get those phone calls instead of you!

But this time... ummm... well folks:

.
I'm holding THIS hostage :) (nah, just let us know where to send it... I'd leave contact info, but hey - we're in the book!)

but really - there's a time limit here... because my curiosity will eventually get the better of me you know!

You are a better person than I am!

open it open it open it open it open it
What if it's part of some drug cartel though? How much do you know about this other QC? Maybe you better dust your fingerprints off of it and send it to the police.

FYI - I've already gotten a message about how to get the package to the happy parents :)

AND - you might remember that this other QC was a FB player at the Y... so we've gotta make nice in case we run into them at some college alumni function (he's buffer than M.O.T.H. - wouldn't want to get them angry)

Funny though - it isn't the first confusion caused by their names, they both visit doctor offices (for different reasons - but in a professional capacity) and apparently MY QC has to be careful that he explain who he is so no-one runs the other way thinking that he's going to try to sell them the latest and greatest in medical advances...

Name confusion is a funny thing. By the looks of it, it can be entertaining, too!

Debbie said...

Thats so funny. Good to hear you found the actual place to send that. You'll have to ask them to take pictures of whats inside for all of us curious people.

We've had our phone number for 3 years and our answering machine even says our last name but people have been calling here for 3 years asking for the Lee's which is clearly not our name. Why do they leave messages when the answering machine says somethign very clearly not that?

Sue Q said...

That's Hilarious!! What are the chances? Apparently, pretty high in your town....

I think you should at least invite yourself to the baby shower so you can find out what was in that package!

Barbaloot said...

Oh-I was fully hoping you were keeping that secret:)

Hurry and open it so we know what it is!

I can't wait to hear about the other 13 things. This was very funny though.
And the WV says oveye. Ture story.

Oh that is hilarious! T! I'm so wanting to meet you, but not sure exactly when. I'll be in St. George on Thursday and Friday of next week. But I will be with my fam and I don't know my schedule. Maybe me, you, April and Queenie can do breakfast. Let me know if either of those days work.

April said...

LOVE IT! Did you make them open it in front of you?

just the five of us said...

It's a small world after all!

T said...

The package is gone... the OTHER QC came to pick it up yesterday evening... and DIDN'T open it in front of me... I'll never know if there was tons of cash stuffed inside of a baby blanket or not... (okay, not likely, but I like to dream...

and Crash - I will MAKE time for breakfast with you - but Please PLEASE PlEaSe... make it Thursday! Of all stupid scheduling things, I'm heading to Provo on Friday... yeah, stupid I know...
