The older I get, the dumber I get
My last order from BetterBee included four more polystyrene nucs. Finally got around to setting them up yesterday, and one of the covers was missing. Have never had a problem with BB before, so this was odd. Looked all over (shipment was in seven boxes) but could not find it. Called today. Megan looked into it and said the weights on my order checked out and there were no extra covers in the shipping area. She asked if I would please check the boxes again. Not in the mood to debate the issue, I said sure. Just went out to the barn, where I keep my bee supplies in an old horse stall. Went through all the boxes again, even though I KNEW I had checked them already. In the last box, what did I find? The missing cover. Duh.
Tomorrow, I will call back and apologize for being stupid.
