In a Nutshell

If ever there was a good analogy for my day, it would be this scene from Seinfeld:

Cut back to Elaine at Mr. Pitt's. There are pairs of socks everywhere. Pitt has on the latest pair.
PITT: It's good, but...
ELAINE: But what??
PITT: Ultimately I don't think they'll stay up.
ELAINE (pulling up Pitt's socks): No, no! They'll stay up!
PITT: For a while, yes, but not in the long run.
ELAINE: But that's why I got you the tighter ones! (Holds them up.)
PITT: Oh, forget about those! (Takes the socks from Elaine and throws them on the floor.) Why do you keep mentioning those?
ELAINE: What do you want!?
PITT: I want a decent sock that's comfortable, that will stay on my foot!!
(Elaine curls up into a fetal position.)

Today, Mr. Pitt has been asking me to get socks from all corners of the globe, and they are all the wrong size.

I hate days like this.

Boo hiss to Mr. Pitt. Hope today was better.

Thanks. Usually Mr. Pitt is quite reasonable. We kept getting our signals crossed. Today was better!
