You know you're having a bad day when...

... after weeks of discussions (during which I strongly urged and encouraged my uncle to just look for a local supplier in Manila), I finally put in the order for bathroom light and exhaust fans totalling $1300 for my uncle.

... that it's been a week since the order was sent in and confirmed and that the products were shipped out.

... that we are expecting the products to be delivered tomorrow to my sister's house and upon receipt, she's ready to put them in shipping boxes to be sent out to Manila.

and today, my brother logs on to YM and asks "pinapatanong pala ni Uncle J kung pwede pa i cancel yung order ? may nahanap yata siyang local supplier eh."


I replied, "NO."

Alam mo kung saan nakakita ng alternative ? Sa ACE Hardware. Mas nakakainis pa nga kasi sa mall lang yun and pagkaraming Ace Hardware sa Metro Manila no.

Ginagastusan nya talaga yung house nila, dream home eh :) yugn $1300, di pa kasama ang shipping papuntang Pilipinas, so ewan ko pa kung magkano yung aabutin.

Btw, may update pala this morning, turns out that uncle does not like the design of the ones being sold in Ace Hardware, so ipapa ship na nya 'tong mga to.

So happy ako. Mas wala nang hassle sa akin.
