So, on Saturday UPS assured me that my bank card would be delivered "before noon" on Monday.

When noon happened and nobody showed up I called up the French office of UPS.

"Oh," the lady said. "When we realized we couldn't do morning delivery we decided to bring it on Tuesday instead."

"Why," I asked.

"Because you requested morning delivery so we assumed that you would not be home," she replied.

"I will be," I said. "This is an important package."

"We will try to get it to you this afternoon," she replied.

The British are so cute when they want to clever, aren't they?
