I almost forgot! My sister is a jewelry engraver but every once in a while she gets orders to engrave plaques, trophies and things like that for businesses. Basically if something is engravable she engraves it.
Well, it turns out that she’s got a box of promo pens sitting in her office. The company that wanted her to engrave the pens with another businesses motto messed up. I don’t know if the lines weren’t the correct lines or if there was a spelling mistake in the original order but something messed up.
It wasn’t my sisters fault. Just to be clear. Whatever happened was the company that brought the work to her fault.
So the company is now giving her a whole new order of promo pens to engrave and they’ve told her that she can keep the first case of pens that she did. They paid her for the work too.
My sister can’t use all those pens so she’s offered to give us half of them. They are really nice pens too.
I’m always looking for pens here because my husband is the biggest pen thief in the world so this is a great bonus!
Actually I’ve received some pretty cool stuff from my sister via messed up engraving orders -none of them here fault. We have a couple of nice silver beer steins and a few other cool things. It all gets used.
Do you ever get any cool freebies because of other peoples mistakes?
