On the 14th of May, three days before my Core 2 Maths exam, a tragic mishap occurred. My graphical calculator fell from my hands and whilst I stood in the kitchen, with my eyes closed, almost cursing my clumsiness, wishing that I was seeing things...
I turned my calculator around to find that the screen was cracked and the right hand side of it had stopped working. It was a very sad day indeed.
Worried about what I will use in my exam, I ordered a new one from Amazon, knowing that it wouldn't reach me in time. Thankfully, Mr C gave me his to borrow for the day of the exam.
When the parcel arrived it was much larger than I had expected but upon opening its contents, I found that not only was there one graphical calculator, but two! That's two for the price of £56.40. Very cheap indeed.
It's been a long while since then and today I decided to email the company by the name of Caboodle and let them know of what had happened. It felt like the right thing to do. So I began:
'As a good gesture, I'd like to inform you that I received not only one graphical calculator, but two. I have looked at the delivery note which states that only one has been ordered and one has been delivered. I am unsure whether you would like the second graphical calculator which has not been paid for, to be returned...'
Within minutes I received a response 'Hi There, Your honesty is extremely refreshing! Please keep the second calculator with our compliments. Kind Regards' followed by the name of the woman I had emailed.
So now, in my possession I have my cracked graphical calculator, my current one and the unopened one. I'm wondering whether my first one still has a guarantee on it lol.
Life is simply... beautiful. Sometimes it takes a series of events to make us realise exactly that. Hope you all have a great day tomorrow.
