It's Just the Coffee Talking: I'm an idiot who was trying to place an online order for a gift TOO QUICKLY and f-ed up the delivery address. Sigh.

 Good Morning... or afternoon or whenever you may read this.... 
 My dear Coffee Friends - I'm an idiot. 

I've been meaning to get an order placed for a birthday gift for someone and I finally was going to hurry and get it done this morning.  I placed it... but it felt 'off' somehow.  I checked everything quickly - the CC number and everything looked ok.  I hit send.

It wasn't tonight when I had time to check emails that I got the first of three (3) delivery "it's on the way" notices and realized....  that's not their street address!  I put the wrong number in!!

Example:  it's supposed to be 6998 and I typed in 6698.

I rushed to call the company (knowing it was too late but you gotta try, right?)

It is too late.  The order was split into 3 deliveries; they send one, and 2 other companies are shipping straight from their own company warehouses.  They said I had to wait until I get the "it's shipped" email notices, and then I have to contact which ever delivery company it ends up being shipped with.  Could be UPS, Fed Ex or USPS.

I have to wait on all three and then try to intercept by calling the delivery companies myself.

I could cry.  Or kick myself.  Actually... both.  I'm so pissed at myself for being an idiot.

In all my life, I don't think I've ever done that before.  All because I was rushing and trying to place the order in too much of a hurry.  

Have you ever typed in the wrong delivery address?  How did it turn out for you?
