Talk about a surprising errands request! We got a call around 6 p.m. one evening from Seattle, of all places--considering we are in Dallas!
Could we, would we, help an online shopper who found the last three furniture items she needed at the IKEA store here in Dallas? She needed to have someone go to the store, pick the boxes up, deliver them to FedEx for shipping to her ASAP for a party she was having very soon. She already had most of the individual pieces; she just needed the last remaining (and matching) few.
We happened to be available that evening and ready for an adventure, so we worked out the logistics and accepted the assignment.
Navigating the IKEA warehouse maze was a new experience for us. Two hours later we were at Fed Ex with the correct items. A quick call to the customer who worked with Fed Ex on their charges, and the deed was done...and we had fun :-) !
