I started to get excited when I receipted #83234, but I didn’t want to get my hopes up in case it all went horribly wrong for me. But then, oh then….. I got it. I got 83238. If there is anything I love, it is a palindrome. I find them extremely elegant, and I was happy. So happy, I did Paul Gross victory arms in my cubicle, which was seen by a few people, who inquired, nodded and said “you got a palindrome.” BUT THEN….! I was emailing the other three whom love a good receipting number story and I noticed something. The invoice number for the item with the receipt number #83238 was #262. ANOTHER PALINDROME!!!! My excitement could not, and cannot be textually rendered. And just when I noticed this, the manager of HR walked past and noticed that I was pretty much making a noise that only dogs and radar could detect. I told her (and showed her the piece of paper.) People must be used to me, as she also laughed and nodded and told me I should change my name to Hannah. I told her she was now being silly.
But yes, I am very easily amused and entertained.
But look!!! I give you the proof. If only my order number had been a palindrome….I would have had to take the rest of the day off.
