Me: Hi, We’ve been trying repeatedly for two weeks to process your order but we still can’t get your card details to go through. I can’t hold the item any longer so I’m just going to cancel the order.
Her: Sorry, I was just at this big fire in Wollongong and my wallet fell into a big burning tree stump and my credit card was destroyed so I had to have it cancelled but they’re sending me a new one next week so if you can just hold it til then I’ll call you with the new number and you can try again…
I only wish I was joking. A burning tree stump.
