    I thought maybe I read they weren't shipping until August. Maybe we'll get them this week. I can't wait. I dont really care for them, but I love earning free stuff!

    Your free stuff could turn into some $$$. I've seen several folks on here who want them. Why keep what you don't want right? :D Then turn that $$ into something you DO want....:thumbup:

    No, FedEx. Although I've had a contractor driver lately who seems a little dense. S/he (I never see him/her, so I don't know if it's a man or a woman) not only leaves the package on the side porch (which is good), but also leaves the door tag, which is meant to be a "we tried to deliver" notice, stuck to the box. I know you were here, because the box is here, usually too close to the screen door so I can't get in/out!

    He/she/it* just wants to be sure you know who put the box there in case you tripped over it and did a double-half gainer into the flower garden.

    * - say it out loud, and real fast.

    "FedUp" is the punchline to an old joke, which you can find here: http://www.chefsuccess.com/f18/omg-changed-shipping-vendor-no-more-man-brown-14222/#post117749

    I called SC earlier and they said that my apron was shipped USPS and that I should receive it on or before 10 business days. It was shipped on August 11th.

    I finally have something in my adjustments area but I can't track it & it says ship date of the 4th. SO my guess is I'm getting it via SLOW USPS.

    When I talked with HO they told me that they have been backed up with sending out the apron & tablecloths - that is why it said August 4th but just showed up on the adjustment thingy on the 11th - that is when they sent them out USPS

    Look at it this way- are you really going to be wearing the Green Snowman Apron in August?? or even September/October? So I'm in no rush. Would rather have seen the Booking Slide as the July incentive and saved the Snowman apron till later this summer or early fall.

    Wouldn't it turn heads to wear the apron to the grocery store? You have a good point and it also made me giggle! Thanks!

    My FedEx lady puts the tag on the door inside the screen if she leaves the package(s). That way if someone goes off with it, they have left a tag. Must be they have been told to do so now. It seems pretty stupid to put the tag on the box though!

    I was hoping to have mine the 22nd for fall preview also LOL Still not showing up in adjustments LOL My Fedex guy as of late has been leaving the slip also but always on the door, which is silly because he leaves the box next to the door so if someone takes the box what is to stop them from taking the slip? LOL

    Boy I called and I got a lady who doesn't know anything about the booking/recruiting slide promotion so who knows and then when I asked her about the apron she said that they haven't even started shipping them yet so she apparently needs to bone up on some things so when people call they know what they are telling them.

    Well I just checked by making an adjustment and not knowing the number and my apron shows a Show date of 8/4 a day after my samples and I received my samples last week but no word on my apron LOL

    Call me a wierdo but I would actually start wearing my apron in September as a good segway into the countdown to Christmas as well as our new plates/platters/overall new products. I'm finding that all of my bookings from last few shows are booking fall shows for CHristmas shopping purposes (espec Sept for Stoneware) so I hope to push the shop early incentive a little more and perhaps the Snowmen touch can help.

    "So you're probably wondering why on earth the pampered chef chick is standing up here in an apron with Snowmen on it. It's September for petes sake! Here in PA we didn't even have a summer and she's thinking Christmas? Well you bet I am and perhaps so will you as you see some of our fantastic items we're going to play with tonite...."
    or
    (Ann's tip:) Throw out the number of days until Xmas (which is already on my PC calendar) and then when they don't guess that its the number of days until Xmas then I can lead into "Well I'll give you a hint...that number relates to the apron I'm wearing today. Now anymore guesses?" and go from there.

    I prefer lots of humor in my shows and if I can stand up there in front of everyone and make fun of the fact that I'm wearing snowmen in September (or Oct) then I have a few more lines for my cross between a Stand Up Comedy Show and my version of a Food Network Show.

    Again, call me a weirdo. :D
