My Precious

Dear Person Who Keeps Stealing Things Out of My Etsy Cart,

CUT IT OUT!

Look, in the last few years I’ve lost a marriage, a baby, the ability to have any more children, a favorite pet, a job I’d had for 8 years, a parent and a really PRECIOUS gold ring.

I now live in a dark hole under a mountain that some little goblin keeps using as a trash heap.

Beads are one of the few highlights of my life. But I can’t get them if you KEEP TAKING THEM.

So STOP IT! You wouldn’t want me to have to come sneaking out of my hole in search of you, now would you?

I thought not.

Sincerely yours,

Gollum

P.S. If you find that ring, please give it back. I have it on good authority that some really bad dude named Sauron is looking for it and he’s hired a goon squad of 9 guys on horses to look for it. You don’t want to mess with them. Really, it’s best to return it to me ALONG WITH THE BEADS YOU STOLE FROM MY ETSY CART so I can keep it safe here under the mountain.













MY Beads! Mine! Mine! /\

OK...I feel your pain, but at least we can all laugh at it - LOVE the post :o)

If I see your precious anywhere, I will send it along back home...

I'm usually a lurker, don't leave many comments, but I just have to say:
Girl, you need to click faster!
And just so you know, you keep showing those great purchases from Etsy that also just happen to be on my favorites list:) I see a "sold" on the listing, then a week later they're on your blog! I wonder what else we have the same taste for?!?
Click. Faster. !!!!! Don't think, just buy! (How's that for encouragement!)

I had no idea Gollum was a jewelry artist! ;)

It wasn't me, really, truly, really. But maybe you should get some fast click training. I'm sure there is a weekend worshop somewhere.

Lorelei said...

well now I'm paranoid that it was me. what were you wanting to buy??

Katie - laughter was definitely my intent. Glad the joke came through.

Barbara - I was actually hitting the checkout button when half the contents of my cart disappeared. I mean, really, it was so annoying!

Silver Parrot said...

Carlene - if you lurk here, then you know I'm no slouch at the bead-buying and the fast clicking. I just happen to think that once something is actually IN MY CART, no one else should be able to come along and take it out. Because in my mind - it already belongs to me LOL!

Silver Parrot said...

Lorelei - it was some Czech glass. But don't be paranoid...I was really only joking (well, mostly!)
