I do not know if the story I’m going to share with you is interesting or not, but surely I know she has “a lot of wisdom of wisdom” through which only a man who has gone through it can tell you.
Even if it can be considered by some ordinary, or maybe fictional, or perhaps I have no idea how to tell it, it is narrated by a man whose karma is totally unusual. I wonder why?
Simple, because I never came out or accomplished anything but nothing of my first attempt.
But I can say that for my luck there is a second chance, even though in this situation I was put I do not know if there is a second chance.
I do not have the courage to call it a Christmas story, but just the desire to have something Christmas, a small gift that for each of us is something, let’s say a little Christmas magic, if it still exists.
Reading the story of someone who is not part of my entourage told me that she is too sympathetic, too romantic and that she does not have a shade of mystery and fantasy in her content.
I wonder with stupor, actually what did she mean?
What can I do to write something horror right now around the winter holidays? I’m sorry, but it’s horror if you think about the mystery of the story, write it about criminals, murderers, crimes, it’s related to it because they’re killing the feelings, criminals of the human intellect, metaphors I do not have dare to use them in the story, just to give him a shade of mystery and why not a bit of fantasy.
Interestingly, I do not know what to say, but I wrote it more for myself, because it killed my last bit of hope she had around the winter holidays.
And now what do I have to look for applause at the open stage?
Well, I did not wait for the applause, although I’m an actor, in this piece I played, but without my will, thus creating a connection with what you would like to happen sometimes in your life, in special and dear moments of each of us.
Finally, a month ago, I prepared for Christmas, a surprise I was thinking, to enjoy it like a good cake, when each of us enjoys something, a small gift which always makes you happy, that makes you radiate happiness and why not who represents you.
Obviously, the story also has a dark black humor (English-specific), just as Buster Keaton could only give, the man who never laughed, to film sequences, let’s say, with “stupid thieves.”
Finally, from the previous stories, you know, among my fantasies about the hobbies that I have, some expensive or expensive, most expensive, such as quality photographic equipment and photography, technical equipment for listening to music and obviously the music itself, the books and their reading in more special conditions, also the quality pens made by célèbre firms, some with other golden pencil with a steel pen, not all very expensive but representative and that I use every now and then when I try to write something.
Many would say, you can write with anything when you have inspiration and have what you say, it is true, but for maniacs, when you write with what you like, like the words flow through the pen of the pen, like an tumultuous river.
For example, the famous American novelist Mark Twain loves to write with only the little “Conklin” pen, a very cheap pen at that time, not very expensive today, but with whom he felt comfortable in the art of writing, well you do not imagine he does not I also have, although I am not a famous novelist, only a modest narrator of events, sometimes fashionable, sometimes modest attempts of fiction or realities that surround me.
Maybe later, who knows … I joked.
Returning to my story, I was surprisingly attracted to the Internet by a certain type of fountain pen; let’s say a new entry, without giving it the name to never be accused by anyone of masked advertising, having some beautiful surprisingly beautiful and vibrant colors made in China with German pen and German converter, which I loved terribly long.
I do not want to go into too many technical details because that’s not the purpose for which I wrote the story, but the pen persuaded me to buy it without paying too much money (I, honestly did not have too much money) from the world’s largest virtual online sales firm, Amazon Germany.
Well, now begin the mystery and the horror part I was talking about at the beginning of the story, I have a tragicomic drama if I’m allowed to express myself like that.
I had previously counted on the days I had until Christmas, but to get it two days before to have the satisfaction that Christmas would unpack the pack and enjoy a baby of a new toy that I had add my collection.
I honestly do not want anyone to experience this sad experience or my fiercest enemy, if there is any, and not for you, those who want to buy something around some holidays that would make you happy.
I placed the order on Amazon Germany, and I waited about 5 days to get the confirmation that what I ordered to receive at their estimated date, the reasonable date for me.
Although they took my money out of my account, I did not pay anything extra, as I said that such a standard delivery order would fit perfectly in my estimated time.
The first blow was that after 5 days I received an email from Amazon from the production company, telling me that I cannot send my pen on the Amazon Germany site as long as it does not fit into the international rules quality and that there was no one on stock (I refer to the color I wanted), giving me another color alternative on the Amazon England website.
Then I wonder, why does God advertise them if they did not have what they offered? That reminds me of a foolish joke, but I cannot tell you she has a too sexual tone, and that would make Santa Claus up if he read it.
Will you ask me why I did not buy it from a store in my country? The answer is not existent in that company’s stores.
The second shot was that the money I paid but I could not transfer them from Amazon Germany to Amazon England only through my bank account.
In the first phase I contacted the bank, and it was sent to me by a clerk with a calm voice of pleasure, that in order to recover my modest amount of money ($ 45), it is necessary to send them the quit email, although I sent them the email by which the respective company announces my cancellation of the order through Amazon Germany. Finally, I canceled the order on Amazon Germany, and I will receive the confirmation of cancellation of the order in the coming days from them.
That’s what I’m into the game, now I have nothing to do, only to play. After several days I get the confirmation of order cancellation and I will contact the bank to recover my money.
However, in order to avoid the destructive leakage of time and to be able to fit me in the period of receipt of the pen at the date proposed by me, I borrowed money from a friend, and I entered Amazon England, ordered it by the date of delivery expected to be December 8. I addressed the bank again, I sent the two emails to cancel and cancel the order one in German and another in English.
After a week, I get a new shot, the money was not in my account, a situation that made me very nervous and I gave them a phone to ask why it took so long to read a row in English and one in German to convince myself that I was right and that I gave them what they asked me, the more they had Google Translate if they did not know the languages.
Their answer was destructive, that in order to honor the deal, I must thoroughly analyze the data and get an answer in a few days.
What did not I know what to do? Do you laugh or cry? However after a day the money was in my account and I was able to use them for other purposes.
My luck was I had borrowed money from my friends to solve my problem, or I prayed, I thought we solved the problem.
After a few days, I get a SMS from the bank through which they noticed me, that the transaction cannot honor it to be deeply analyzed, and give them a one month deadline to solve my request, “this is the Cherry on the cake – a Romanian expression “, all the more so as the money went into the account two days ago.
God, in what country do I live?
Exact scenario of horror comedy! This situation has left me a bitter taste, a renowned bank with stupid officials, where she does not know what is right, where communication seems to be absolute zero, but where they are much better paid than others, or may have considered that I have a family relationship with “Bill Gates” and are full of money and I can afford to wait for the money back from them for a longer period.
Well, I do not have any kinship relationship with the famous American tycoon, nor do they spin the money with the shovel, as they probably thought, and all this for a sum of $ 45, but if the amount was bigger than 10 times or 100 times or 1,000 times, so would that have happened?
Question to which only the famous magician, Harry Houdini can answer!!!
Returning to my order, the delivery term was estimated to arrive on December 8th; today we are on December 19th with six days before Christmas celebration and not arrived yet.
I think some believe in the nineteenth century and not at all in the 21st century, and if it was sent with a horse – drawn cart, it could arrive sooner.
But what really upset me was the feedback email regarding the pen on is not only seen in pictures and not in reality.
What else could I say? But my answer was quite confidential, so those who had to read it hope to have read it; but I was polite and very good and I sent them the following: “Gentlemen, you have recourse to the ugliest Christmas bad joke “for which I thank you wholeheartedly. Have I even lost the hope of receiving the pen, or even until Christmas I can get it?
That’s why Christmas does not give up at the favorite cake, the coffee in the bar and the cigarettes I usually smoke out.
Maybe you, teach me what to do?
(sorry if the translation in English isn’t so good, and my English too…)
