Mom thought that was a little weird because we hadn't ordered anything. So, Mom called the FedEx people to ask if it was really our package. Mom gave the woman on the phone our address and said her name.
The woman asked Mom if anyone else lived here. Mom said, "Just my dog, Buttons." And the woman replied, "The package is addressed to the DOG!" The FedEx woman thought that was pretty funny. Nothing funny about it in my opinion. I like to get packages!
Anyway, the woman told Mom that I needed a "government-issued photo ID" to pick up my package. Just one problem there, though...I don't have one! Mom asked the woman what she should do since I'm a doggie and don't have a driver's license. The woman suggested Mom just take me with her to the FedEx office to pick up my package.
So that's what we did. We got in the car this afternoon and headed to the FedEx place.
I was pretty excited when we got there. I ran to the building.
The woman at the FedEx place thought it was funny that I came with Mom. Mom told her about the package and that we didn't have a "government-issued photo ID" for me. Mom told her that the FedEx woman on the phone said that I should come with Mom to get the package. The FedEx woman at the place thought it was pretty funny, too, that I got a package. Thankfully, though, the she said that we could just use Mom's ID, and she let us have my package. I guess she believed us that I didn't have an ID!
The FedEx woman asked Mom, "Just what did your DOG order from Amazon.com?!" Mom told her that we didn't know what was in my package because it was a birthday present. The FedEx woman thought that was pretty funny, too. So Mom told her that it was a present from another dog who lives out west. And then the FedEx woman thought Mom was completely nuts.
Anyway, here's a picture of me at the FedEx place. (Yes, I'm sticking my tongue out at the FedEx woman who laughed about me getting a package.) That's my package on the counter with me.
Mom made me wait until we got home to open my package. Turns out that it was from my friend Mattie. He sent me a book called "GoD and DoG." Mom loves the YouTube video about it. I can't wait for Mom to read my book to me!
Thanks for the book, Mattie! And thanks to the FedEx people for a good laugh today...and for accepting Mom's ID, of course!
