AND NOW THE REST OF THE STORY
By this time it is 5pm, and Craig is told to drive the 60 plus miles to the company yard in Bloomington and that they would try and figure out what to do with it in the morning. Guess what? This morning rolls around, and after numerous phone calls between Customer Service, the shipping office, and the meat place in Vernon, it was decided that Craig would return there a third time to drop off the box of meat. At this point, I am beside myself at home hearing all of this, thinking to myself, that must be one heck of an expensive box of meat, to be paying Craig all the detention pay and extra miles to babysit it now for over two days.
So Craig returns again, asks for the person he was suppose to ask for, that said person comes to the counter, and says "NOPE, not going to take that box". At this point, I think I would start to look around for a hidden camera, because this is getting ridiculous. Craig calls back into the office, they reaffirm that the person is to take possession of the box, but that person still refuses. As luck would have it, a representative from the shipping office is in the area, and he is told where Craig is, and he responds there and takes possession of the box of meat. Boy, was Craig happy to wash his hands of that fiasco and be done with it.
