The best gift I never got

I've heard that a bunch of people at work got together and ordered me a fabulous gift for Frinklin's and my wedding. The shipped it two months ago and have been waiting to hear from me via thank you note. However, as it's been two months and no thank you notes have been forthcoming, a few people brought it up and asked what I thought of the gift.

Gift? What gift?

We didn't get a gift.

When the person who actually shipped the package to us found out that we didn't receive it, she called Pottery Barn, who gave her the tracking information for the gift. She contacted Fed Ex, and found out that it was delivered to my address just a few days after shipping, and that Rose Guitierrez signed for it.

The next day she informed me that Rose had signed for the package and I could likely pick it up from her. Only one slight problem, I don't know anyone named Rose Guitierrez! She's not a relative or a friend. She might be a neighbor, which would explain why she stole my gift.

Now we have to negotiate with Fed Ex and Pottery Barn to get another gift sent out, or I can try to find Rose. I have this mental image of me walking door to door in my neighborhood, knocking on doors and asking for Rose Guitierrez. Then I look behind the person holding open the door and there is my spiral candle holder hanging on their wall.

Damn you Rose Guitierrez, forcing me to speak to the neighbors!

In my experience, UPS goes to the left, right, or across the street. You shouldn't have to look too far. Hey -- check the mailboxes!

And the candleholder is gorgeous.
