Last week, I ordered some Hunter rain boots from Gilt and I was impatiently awaiting their arrival. I came home to my apartment and saw that I had a UPS slip on my door saying they'd been delivered (yay!) to the apartment complex office, but the office had closed at 6:00pm (boo!). I made a point to go directly home after work the next day.
Sidenote: I have been living in my apartment since March 2009. I have a terrible habit of buying goodies online, so I get a lot of packages. However, I also work full-time so I'm never home during delivery hours.
I got to my complex office before 6:00pm (yay!) so I could get my new boots. The UPS delivery guy was dropping off the packages for the day. The office lady paused their conversation to get my package for me. I politely said hello to the UPS man. Here is how the conversation went:
UPS Man: Hey, I know you. You sure do get a lot of packages.
Moi: [sheepishly] Haha, yes, I do a lot of online shopping.
UPS Man: And you're NEVER home. Like ever.
Moi: Yea, I've got a job so that means I'm at work when you're delivering. Sorry for the inconvenience?
UPS Man: So how's your Mom?
Moi: [Did he just make a "Yo Mama" joke? Why is he asking me this? What is going on?]
UPS Man: [interrupts] Because I remember you saying that she had surgery...I hope she's okay.
***Okay, people, he's right...she did have surgery. In APRIL. I have had one encounter with this man. It was back in April after Mommy Dearest's surgery. I had ordered something online (shocking) for her birthday (also in April) and there were delivery issues. That's it. That is the only time we have ever spoken. I couldn't have picked the man out of a line-up if my life had depended on it.
Is this creepy that he remembered? Or am I just skeptical?
