And this is why I love my husband

We cancelled our Verizon tv service. Again. We've done this before. It seems that everything he wants to watch on tv is available on Hulu, Netflix, Zune, OnDemand, etc. so no need for all the premium channels or the monthly fee for the digital DVR converter box, right? Right.

So this time apparently we're sticking with the plan. No cable box. I'm fine with that. I rarely have time to watch tv anyway.

But here's the fun part. When he was on the phone with Verizon the other day, he asked them to send the packaging for the digital converter. When we returned it before, they sent us a big box, bubble wrap, and a postage paid UPS slip to return the converter. The Verizon rep told him they no longer do that. Huh? You did it before. Why not now? Nope, sorry you have to take the converter to a local UPS store and return it there. And so I did.

Guess what we received in the mail today? The big box, bubble wrap, and a postage paid UPS slip to return the converter. Guess what my husband put in the big box and mailed back to them? The 2" x 4" piece of paper confirming that I sent the converter box back via the UPS store. And yes, he wrapped it in the bubble wrap.


  1. hahaha. Glad to see you blogging here again.

  2. The same thing happened to us with our cable box and a few months later they billed us! Hubby sent the bill in along with the receipt from the store. However, he didn't send it back as creatively as your Hubby did! LOL Too funny!
