picture-1.jpgI was on the back porch and had just hit the submit button for the DHL website to schedule a pickup. It pained me to do so, because I am having to send my Macbook back for service.

At less than a year old, the plastic along the edge where my wrists rest had cracked and small slivers had peeled back. I called Apple Thursday and learned it was a known issue. On Friday, I had a box via DHL to ship the laptop to Apple for free repair. I waited until today, because we use the laptop in worship at church for presentations (go Propresenter!).

So, I shut the Macbook down after hitting submit and walked back into the house. I LITERALLY didn’t make it to the kitchen when the doorbell rang.

“Hmmmm.” I wondered who it could be.

Lo and behold, it was the DHL gal.

“I was just around the corner when I got notified of your pickup. I know it’s not 12 yet, but wondered if you were ready?”

I was flabbergasted.

She waited patiently for me as I packed up the Macbook into the provided box and waved a cheery goodbye as she left.

DHL – freaky fast.

On this day...
