why i love vancafe so much is because they know if they include a bag of cookies my wife is not as mad about the parts I just bought.... they are so smart!

some times i come home and the box is open and the cookies are gone and nobody says a word.

I've said the phrase "Shadddddup! an eat your cookies, you can yell at me later"

I have a 500.00 box due in tommorrow from them, sadly I requested no artwork Sad

a hand drawn badassed unicorn like that would've gotten me an easy grand worth of no questions asked parts. Who can say no to that wicked awesome response to an unorthodox customer request.

My last order included a comment "send me lots of stuff"
And they did! a license plate frame, a kitchen magnet.. AND cookies..

..but then again, it was a $1000 order.

I predict a wave of "comment" instructions submitted with orders.
My next one will be "fold my packing slip into an origami crane"

Oh! the pain.
Peter's gonna have to hire someone just to handle the special requests. Laughing
