Some of you may remember how I totally wussed out the other day whilst attempting to cancel my milk delivery service from Winder Dairy . I just wanted you all to know that the situation has been rectified. The impossible-to-budge Rock that you all know and love is back. With a vengeance. The other day I found I was in a mood. And I decided to begin my blood-thirsty tirade with Winder.
If you recall, the thing that threw me and kept me from being able to cancel my account was the Quality Assurance Manager's offer to call us each week to see if we wanted to make any changes. The thing about that is that when you make those kinds of promises, you should really follow through with them. He never did. I suppose there are people out there that would feel some sort of obligation to stay merely because of the free apples he sent us. In fact, when I told him I wanted to cancel, he said, "Did you get the items I sent to you?" Like that would remind me of my unspoken obligation to stay. I said I did and that I'd like to cancel.
The other thing that really clinched our decision to cancel is that we keep forgetting to get the milk out of the cooler in the mornings. Now that it's Summer, that's not such a good idea to leave your milk sitting all day. So not only were we paying nearly 10 bucks a week for milk, but we were paying 10 bucks a week for sour milk. Well, after we forgot to get it the first day, we knew it was already bad. So it didn't seem like a huge priority to go get it. So almost a week later, it's still sitting in the Winder Dairy cooler on our front porch. When Scott (the QA manager) asked if we had any empty bottles to pick up, I told him, "Well, here's the thing. We have 3 half-gallon bottles in our cooler that have been sitting there since our delivery last Thursday. I'm not willing to open them. So I'd be more than happy to throw them away for you or you can pick up the bottles with the sour milk in them."
He opted to let me throw them away. Apparently the cooler is ours to keep as well. So I guess if you're going to sign up for Winder, do it in the Winter time.
