That was SO not the question I just asked you …

25 Nov

Me, by email, to inbound duty free shop:

If I pre-order (large item X) for collection next Monday morning, are you able to wrap it up so my kids don’t immediately see what it is, given that it is their Christmas gift and all?

Inbound duty free shop to me:

Hi Melissa, if you can just send us your flight details and credit card number, we can put one of those aside for you.

Me, to Inbound duty free shop:

Um, I kind of need to know whether you can wrap it up pls? Cos  otherwise, no sale.

Betcha they still don’t get it.

    And in the end it wasn’t actually wrapped up. The person who was going to wrap it was away for three days (ending after our flight arrived). Luckily I noticed the package that consisted of item X and a bottle of item Y and figured not to many people would have been ordering both of those and as I steered the kids off past the counter mentioned to Melissa that the package was not wrapped.
