Tom and Jerry Saga

J is awesome at the computer. When he is at grandma's (which is a lot) he surfs the web. Tom and Jerry are his obsession at the moment. He has found a Tom and Jerry game that he would like to buy for the gameboy. He counted his money and figured not quite enough. Well... two weeks ago we had a garage sale and when he counted the money he made he knew exactly what to buy. I helped him go online to purchase a game from a seller on Amazon. He immediately went outside to wait for the mailman, remember it is only Saturday. We finally got him to come in by informing it would be here by next Saturday. I gave the games a whole week just in case there were any problems.

He drove me nuts all week. He practically attacked the mail lady every day. Around Thursday he was starting to get sad and lathargic. I emailed the seller to see when it was mailed so I could have a definate date, they were very nice, and we figured it would be here by Sat. On Sat I come home from work and there is a package in the mailbox I recognize the sellers name so I don't open it, big mistake. J opens the package takes one look at it and says "That is dumb" The game we got was for playstation2 it was tales of the crypt. Not really all that appropriate for a 7 year old. I emailed the seller immediately and they responded right away with a sorry please return and we will send again.

Well it is Saturday again and I am getting nervous. The boys are going on a 2 day car trip in 4 days and the game really needs to get here. I get home from work and there is another package in my box. This time I open it just in case. Tom and Jerry have arrived and the seller threw in a bonus game so now we have 2. I din't want to tell J yet because he needed to do a little work first. Of course the minute he saw me he started asking for the T&J game over and over and over and over and over again. I give! I tell him the games are here but he can't have them until we pack his suitcase. Well that didn't work, he starts hyperventalating and really stressed so I give again and he opens the package. We now have one happy little boy who really wants to get his work done so he can play.

Finally I say he can play and he was glued to his game until bedtime. I have to say other than the length of time(which really wasn't that long but J was driving me nuts) this seller was awesome! They responded to my emails, they resent the game with an extra, and they refunded my money (which they didn't need to do)
All that really matters is that Jordan is happy and he is!
