day 33 was a blur of errands and deliveries...same story different day when it comes to the kids and naps and such. today's big lesson was about the intercom in our apartment. you see, we get an intercom call when there's a delivery. when i answer it, i say "okay, thank you", and presto whamo, someone shows up at our door with something.
last night, i ordered indian take away for dinner. the food showed up exactly on time, and a nice gentleman rang up and announced the delivery. i said "okay, thank you" and hung up. a minute later, the intercom phone rang again, and a tired and exasperated but polite voice requested "unlock the door, please, madam." oops...all this time, i have been leaving the delivery person locked on the other side of the lobby door having to wait for apartment personnel to open the lobby door. i have encountered some very patient people. after this incident prompted me to more closely inspect our intercom phone, i noticed that there is a button at the very top to the right with the word "unlock" it. in my own defense, the phone is monochromatic, and neither the button nor the text on it stands out.
i am quite embarrassed at my mistake, but got a good laugh at myself, too.
p.s. taz, the butter chicken we got did not even come close to the level of deliciousness yours has.
