The other day I received a box that arrived expedited via UPS from VTech in Richmond. Inside, not surprisingly (seeing as it was from VTech) was a phone.
Odd. I didn’t order a phone.
There was no packing slip inside. No note regarding its source or reason for being in a box addressed to me. I called VTech. The customer service representative was caught off balance. He had no explanation and struggled to explain why I might have received a phone from them. I’m not even in their customer database.
Unfortunately, it’s not the greatest phone. It’s a sort of run-of-the-mill 2.4GHz cordless you’d find at Wal-Mart or Superstore. So, I guess it’s okay. It must be functional.
So, the question I have for readers of this blog: is somebody playing a joke on me? Are you poking some fun at a blogger who’s obsessed with hi-tech gadgetry by sending him some lo-fi product.
Because if you are, it worked. I’m just sitting here obsessing over why, if this is an error, it didn’t involve some totally rad product like a Sony Milo or a Slingbox (truly my heart’s desire these days). Heck, I’d even write a review.
