Shipping Is Hard!

Dear Diary,

I’m exhausted. I can honestly say I have a new appreciation for what packers and shippers go through every day. They can keep that job. I don’t want it.

Last Sunday we had a 600 lot Coin and Paper Money auction. Literally thousands of coins were sold. But it’s thousands of very small items. Coin sized items. Easy to handle and sell and move sized items.

…unless you’re shipping them.

Over half of the sale was bought online! We always have online bidders. It can be time consuming to get all the items packaged and shipped but I get it done. This time however was an adventure.

Calling people with quotes is the worst part. The customers are polite and friendly and almost always agree to the quoted amount. We actually have great customers for stuff like that. But lots of times I get voice mails and until they call me back, I don’t know what to do with the items.

They sit. Right there. Mocking me.

I’m tired just thinking about it all. Here’s a picture I took of the back seat of my truck filled with boxes.


There is way more in the truck. That’s just all I could fit in the frame.

Thank you so much to Beth and Dorothy for helping Jayne and I package it all on Friday. You guys Rule Da Skoolz. Werd. Dawg. Other-Early-90’s-Slang-Word.

I’m not sure what the point of this post is. I’m tired. That’s the point.

Love Michael
