Before going to the first delivery of the day, they called Cindy, the first customer on the list. The delivery men said ‘Good Morning Cindy! We have your new refrigerator ready for delivery. We will be there soon.’ Cindy said, ‘Ok. You can deliver my refrigerator now. See you soon.’
Willy and Amos arrived at Cindy’s house 20 minutes later to deliver her new refrigerator. Willy went to the door. He rang the doorbell. No one came to the door. Willy knocked on the door and no one came to the door.
The delivery men called Cindy again on the phone. ‘Hello,’ they said after she answered ‘We are at your house now with your new refrigerator.’ The customer said ‘What? I am not expecting a delivery today. I am not ready for a delivery. You must be confused. Please come tomorrow’. Willy and Amos could not believe their ears. Cindy, the customer had just told them to come do the delivery and now she said she was not ready. Willy and Amos run into problems like this every day.
